Combining the features of the X range and the classic looks of a coupe, the BMW X4 is the first premium mid-sized Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) for the brand.The X4 impresses with quality all-round, including in its engine performance, standard equipment and technology.
From launch, the BMW X4 will be available with a choice of three diesel engines: the xDrive20xd, xDrive30d and the xDrive35d.
Powered by a newly developed 2.0-litre diesel engine, the xDrive20d has an output of 190bhp and 400Nm of torque. The power unit will complete the benchmark sprint in eight seconds and will go on to a top speed of 132mph.
BMW claims the X4 xDrive20d engine is a frugal choice, particularly when opting for the eight-speed automatic transmission, as it will cut fuel consumption down to 54.3mpg and will emit just 138g/km.
For sheer performance, the xDrive35d 3.0-litre engine is the flagship unit as it will deliver 313bhp and a peak torque of 630Nm. It will sprint zero to 62mph in just 5.2 seconds and go on to a top speed of 153mph.
Fuel consumption for the xDrive35d is still good thanks to BMW’s Twinpower Turbo Technology, with a claimed combined fuel economy of 47.1mpg.
EfficientDynamics technologies also minimise the X4’s fuel consumption, with the use of Auto Start-Stop, Brake Energy Regeneration and on-demand operation of ancillary units across the range.
There is a decent level of standard equipment available for the BMW X4, including an automatic opening tailgate, Variable Sport Steering, 18-inch light-alloy wheels, front and rear Park Distance Control, Performance Control and Xenon headlights.
Standard interior features include split folding rear seats, a leather sport steering wheel, heated front seats and BMW Business media package.
The flagship M Sport trim level is sport-focused and features aerodynamic body styling and exclusive 19-inch M Sport light-alloy wheels. These are coupled with M Sport suspension to enhance the X4’s all-round ride.
