The 2019 X4 gains new standard safety equipment with Active Protection offering protective measures when an accident is imminent.
The most frugal option, and our recommended choice in the current X4, is xDrive20d, which has claimed Carbon dioxide emissions of 142g/km and fuel economy of up to 52.3mpg. There are even particulate filters, even for the petrol engines. Dubbed a Sports Activity Vehicle by BMW, the original X4 received surprisingly good reviews, with solid engineering underpinning its junior X6 liftback styling.
The entry-level X4 is the xDrive20i, with a two-litre turbopetrol four rated for 135kW at 6500 revs and 290Nm from 1350-1450rpm, which BMW says will hit 100 from a standing start in 8.3 seconds and 215km/h flat out, at a nominal cost of 7.3 litres per 100km on the NEDC scale.
The 355bhp petrol-engined M40i gets to 62mph in 4.8 seconds and has claimed fuel economy of around 31mpg, while the equivalent figures on the diesel M40d are 322bhp, 4.9 seconds and 44.1mpg. The boot has a capacity of 525 litres and the load space can be expanded to a maximum of 1,430 litres by folding down the sections of the rear backrest, with its standard 40:20:40 split.
However, BMW has made a decision to forward the second-generation X4 quite prematurely probably due to the state of the competition.
President Trump says it's up to Dems to protect 'Dreamers'
They are trying to come up with a solution on March 5th, when the DACA program protecting dreamers is supposed to end. Garaufis said the Trump administration relied on an "erroneous" belief the program was unconstitutional.
Xdrive 30i 2.0 litre Four-cyl, eight-speed Steptronic transmission. Much like its Mercedes rival, BMW has given the X4 wide, slim rear lights that help to accentuate the car's width and road presence - an important consideration for many buyers in the SUV-coupe market. If that's the case, the base engine would be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 240 horsepower, and the upgrade would be a big one that brings with it a turbo'd 3.0-liter inline six spinning out 355 horsepower.
A straight-six diesel will power the range-topping M40d, which will generate 326PS and 680Nm of torque. It will carry a price tag of $50,450.
Drivers can choose between xLine, M Sport X and M Sport variants, but no matter which version you go for you'll get 18in alloy wheels as standard (although sizes of up to 21in are available).
The reborn X4 also comes with an optional 2.2-inch touchscreen display on the auto key - great for showing off to casual acquaintances at the coffee shop. The vehicle also has standard Active Guard with Front Collision Warning, City Collision Mitigation with Braking, Pedestrian Warning with City Braking, and Speed Limit information. With its more coupe-like body, the goal was to come up with BMW describes as the look of an "eye-catching athlete".
The BMW X4 shares a lot with the third-gen X3, including the new iDrive infotainment system that features voice and gesture control, as standard.
