  • 2018 BMW X4

The petrol engines for the X4 will come with the following specifications. The M Sport suspension and speed-sensitive electro-mechanical Servotronic steering are standard while it gives a choice between 19-inch and 20-inch wheels on offer. A more powerful version of the same engine is fitted in the xDrive25d, with 228bhp and 0-62mph taking 6.8 seconds.

However, BMW has made a decision to forward the second-generation X4 quite prematurely probably due to the state of the competition.

The new BMW X4 is marginally longer (by 81mm) and wider (by 37mm) than the outgoing model, with 54mm added to the car's wheelbase and a mere 3mm taken from its height. All engines will be mated to a standard eight-speed automatic that sends power to all four wheels via BMW's xDrive system. Acceleration to 100km/h is quoted at 4.9 seconds, top speed is limited to 250km/h and fuel; consumption is NEDC-rated at 6.6 litres per 100km. This means it'll accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.8 seconds and return an advertised 44.1mpg and 170g/km of CO2. Three full-size seats provide passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model, while boot has capacity has been increased to 525 litres.

BMW is also including the Active Guard technology, which includes Frontal Collison Warning, Automatic City Collision Mitigation and Braking including Daytime Pedestrian Detection, and Speed Limit Information. This is the second generation of the X4, which originally debuted for the 2015 model year. That model can sprint to 60 miles per hour in just 4.6 seconds.

A straight-six diesel will power the range-topping M40d, which will generate 326PS and 680Nm of torque.




BMW has revealed the 2018 model of its "Sports Activity Coupe" or say SUV-coupe, the X4, with a host of significant updates. LED lights come as standard on all models. Optional safety features include active cruise control, which can bring the vehicle to a stop and pull away again in traffic, along with traffic-sign recognition and lane-departure warning systems.

What materials you'll find inside the new X4 depend on which version you go for, but many features are shared with the latest X3.

BMW has gone heavy on driver assistance systems, too, with active cruise control, lane assist, crossing traffic warnings and parking help. The 2018 BMW X4 is also longer and wider than before in a bid to boost practicality.

Apple and Android phones are fully supported, as are their respective smart watches, along with Amazon Alexa and Google Home personal assistants; BMW suggests that a route could be planned via any of these methods before being transferred to your vehicle, based on calendar entries and other information.

BMW is promising better comfort and luxury, compared to the old X4, with acoustic glass to reduce road noise and leather trim fitted as standard.
