Its predecessor – the first ever Sports Activity Coupe at the premium end of the mid-size class – broke new ground and now the all-new BMW X4 is writing the next chapter in this story of success. Its vehicle concept, which fuses the hallmark features of a BMW X model with the sporting elegance of a coupe, has also proved an instant hit in this class. Approximately 200,000 units of the first-generation X4 have been sold around the world since the original model was launched in 2014. The all-new BMW X4 underscores its individual character with significantly enhanced driving dynamics, standout exterior design accentuating the car’s sporting instincts, a further refined premium ambience in the interior, state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and leading-edge connectivity technologies. Added to which, the dynamic and extravagant aura of the Sports Activity Coupe is further highlighted by the addition of two BMW M Performance models to the line-up: the all-new BMW X4 M40i and all-new BMW X4 M40d.
all-new BMW X4 interior
The exterior design of the all-new BMW X4 is a case study in muscular dynamics and commanding presence. Clean surfacing and high-class, modern accents headline this updated interpretation of the unmistakable X4 aesthetic. The X4 assumes the role of eye-catching athlete in the BMW X model family.
“The second-generation BMW X4 brings together a distinctive, dynamic silhouette with a clear, pared-back use of forms,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design.
Dynamically stretched proportions, powerful styling.
An increase of 81 millimetres in exterior length to 4,752 millimetres, 54 millimetres added to the wheelbase (now 2,864 millimetres), an extra 37 millimetres of width (1,918 millimetres) and a 3-millimetre drop in height (to 1,621 millimetres) lend the all-new BMW X4 dynamically stretched proportions. Short overhangs and powerfully formed, subtly hexagonal wheel arches emphasise the perfectly balanced 50:50 distribution of weight between the front and rear axle.
In the centre of the striking front end stands a large BMW kidney grille in three-dimensional look. Twin headlight units with dynamic contours and horizontal foglamps integrated into the outer air intakes form a new interpretation of the familiar six-eyed face espoused by BMW X models. All of the light functions feature LED technology as standard.
The precise shoulderline – which takes in the door openers en route to the rear lights – and the character line between the wheel arches break up the surfaces of the car’s flanks. This creates clearly defined haunches, which are additionally emphasised by the drawn-in glasshouse at the rear. The coupe- style roofline slides into the rear window with an elegant flourish before dipping down more steeply to the rear. The window graphic also underlines the dynamic proportions of the all-new BMW X4, thanks to a smoothly rising sill line and an elongated take on the Hofmeister kink “counter-swing” at the base of the C-pillars.
Clearly structured surfaces and horizontal lines shape the car’s tail. The LED rear lights, with their three-dimensional shaping, are slim in design and positioned at the extreme edges of the rear. Together with the twin exhaust tailpipes (shared by all engine variants), they magnify the width of the rear end.
xLine, M Sport X and M Sport model variants with their own individual character.
Three optional model variants allow drivers to tailor the appearance of the all-new BMW X4 to reflect their personal tastes. Each comes with standalone design features as well as model-specific 19-inch light-alloy wheels.
The robust nature of the Sports Activity Coupe is clearly expressed by the xLine variant, which combines bespoke front and rear underguard elements and side skirts in Glacier Silver metallic with side window surrounds and further styling accents in a satin Aluminium finish. The newly designed
M Sport X model radiates an air of off-road-focused sportiness, thanks to styling accents in Frozen Grey (a colour with rally racing connotations), as well as the individually designed air intakes, side skirts and rear underguard element. The M Sport model has an undeniably dynamic look, clearly stating its eagerness to deliver intense sportiness on the open road with its aerodynamically optimised front/rear aprons and side skirts, and accents in High-gloss Black.
The all-new BMW X4 can now also be specified with options from the BMW Individual portfolio. Extras designed to give the exterior design an exceptionally exclusive feel include the BMW Individual paint finish Sun Stone metallic and 21-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels.
