BMW's redesigned X4 adds new engines, more power for 2019


BMW's decision to carve a sleeker shape from its X3 crossover once seemed curious but it's now commonplace. The new X4 is 3 inches longer than before, with 2.1 inches added in the wheelbase. But, as these pictures show, the X4's genes are obvious from the front, with the grille, bumper and LED headlights identical to the X3's.

An all-new version of BMW's coupe-shared X4 crossover has been unveiled ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, which runs from 8 to 18 March.

Globally, the new X4 will be offered with three gasoline and four diesel engine options, ranging in output from 184 horsepower and 360.

The interior of the X4 shared with the X3 including a redesigned fascia with a freestanding infotainment screen. The 30i is powered by a new turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 248 hp, up from 240 hp for the engine in the outgoing 28i. These seats can be split 40:20:40 (using buttons in the boot) as standard; doing so will increase the car's 525-litre boot to 1,430 litres. Buyers wanting to add more luxury can choose from electrically adjustable and heated seats, active seat ventilation and three-zone climate control, and a larger panoramic glass roof available as optional extras.

Two BMW M Performance models available: BMW X4 M40i and BMW X4 M40d boast phenomenally powerful engines, plus model-specific design and equipment features.

Engine options are pretty much what you'd expect from the X3, with all engine options coming with eight-speed automatic, with two diesel options - xDrive20d and xDrive 30d - and two petrol options - xDrive20i and xDrive30i. BMW quotes 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h, while slurping 9.2 litres per 100km on the old NEDC rating.

There is also the X4 M40i, which comes with gasoline-fueled and turbocharged inline six's 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. A set of standard, gray 19-inch wheels round out the M40i's visual upgrades.

Each trim level brings its own choice of trim for the seats, dashboard and other appointments, with BMW offering "Tacora Red" Vernasca leather seats as an option exclusively for the X4. The new X4 also features standard navigation and the newest iDrive system, which includes improved voice recognition. Driver assist systems include blind spot detection, lane departure warning, daytime pedestrian protection, frontal collision warning with city collision mitigation, rear cross traffic alert for the rear and speed limit information.

BMW has yet to declare a weight for its fastest X4, but it's sharing the same architecture as the critically acclaimed new X3, so it could be up to 110 pounds lighter than its 4,056-pound predecessor.
