BMW X4 - price, specs and release date

The 2019 BMW X4 reaches U.S. dealers in July, priced from $50,450 for the four-cylinder model, and $60,450 for the M40i.

BMW practically invented the crossover coupe with the launch of the X6 in 2007.

The new X4 is longer and wider than its predecessor, with more space in-between its front and rear axles. Meanwhile, the four-wheel drive system is set up with a rear-wheel bias, which the company claims ensures that the X4 delivers the sporty handling that its cars are renowned for.

BMW has only released pricing information for the entry-level X4 20d (£42,900) and M40d (£55,315), but more specs and prices will revealed in full when the X4 makes its worldwide debut at the Geneva Motor Show on 8 - 18 March.

True, the X4 has been on the market for only four years, and models usually last around 6-7 years in one generation before being renewed.

The X4's interior is a lot like the X3's. The xDrive30i packs a 2.0-liter turbo four that produces 252 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, allowing the coupe crossover to do 0-62 time in 6.3 seconds and achieve a top speed of 149 miles per hour. The two X4 M Performance models will hit 62mph in 4.8 and 4.9 seconds respectively, impressive numbers considering their relative bulk. This can be expanded to a maximum of 1430 litres by folding down the sections of the rear backrest, with its standard 40/20/40 split.

When sparring in the Aldi 500 gets too hot, however, the X4 has got your back with its standard Active Protection safety system that tightens the seatbelts and closes all windows in the event of an imminent collision. The dashboard is dominated by a large iDrive infotainment screen, which measures 6.5 inches as standard or 10.25 inches if the optional "Navigation System Professional" is selected.

A range of other engine options are being offered, spanning from a 135kW xDrive20i, a 185kW 30i, to a 140kW 20d, and 170kW 25d. 20-inch wheels are standard fit, with 21s on the typically vast options list.

Initially the X4 will be offered with four engine options, including two new to the range M Performance models.These will be combined with bolder body styling to present a more performance-pitched image. All feature xDrive all-wheel drive and all come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The X4 M40i gets 355 horsepower and goes 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds.

The M Performance versions don't just harbour a tweaked engine though, as both feature bespoke styling touches inside and out, as well as an active exhaust system, bigger brakes and optional M Performance adaptive suspension. The new BMW X4 is here to save the day and you can order one now from £43k.
