Swoopy BMW X4 revealed

BMW X4 front quarter

The new BMW X4 crossover has been unveiled. Based on the X3, which itself is built on a 3 Series platform, the X4 adopts its coupé-like styling from the bigger X6. Viewed head-on, the high-riding crossover sports large air intakes in the bumper and headlights that merge with the BWM grille.

The car’s roofline reaches its highest point above the driver and the swoops down smoothly to the trailing edge of the tailgate. The signature swage line running along the flanks of BMW models is split into two on the X4. The first section rises dynamically from the front wheel arches to the rear door handles, while the second part draws the eye to the muscular sculpting of the rear wings. At the back, there are L-shaped LED taillights that are familiar from the new 3 Series and a faux rear diffuser. Overall, the X4 is 14mm longer and 36mm lower than the X3.

BMW X4 interior

Inside, the driver and front passenger sit 20mm lower than in the BMW X3, while the “two-seat look” of the rear is said to accentuate the coupé character of the car.

Under the bonnet, six engine variants will be on offer, including:

  • A 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel with 140kW (190HP) and 400Nm in the xDrive20d and returns an average 5.0L/100km and does 0-100km/h in 8.0 seconds;
