The all-new BMW X4 is 81mm longer than its predecessor, with 54mm added to the wheelbase and 37mm extra width. It is also lower by 3mm. All of these elements come together to give it dynamically stretched proportions that emphasise its perfect 50:50 weight distribution and hint at the enhanced performance potential.

Two 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 M Sport model has a more dynamic look, clearly stating its eagerness to deliver performance on the road with its aerodynamically optimised front/rear aprons and side skirts, and accents in High-gloss Black. 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. The standard specification of ‘Sport’ marks the entry point to X4 ownership.

In addition, the new 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 Sunstone metallic and 21-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels.

The M Sport model also comes with M-specific sports seats in Vernasca leather, an M leather steering wheel and an anthracite-coloured BMW Individual headliner, complemented by interior trim strips in Aluminium Rhombicle with accent strips in Pearl-effect Chrome. The M Sport X model features all of the M Sport interior content with a unique Aluminium Rhombicle Dark with Pearl-effect Chrome accent trim.

Vernasca leather upholstery is standard on all UK models and is now also available in Tacora Red alongside a new black with red contrast stitching option, both exclusive to the all-new BMW X4.

Three full-size seats are fitted in the rear compartment of the X4, providing passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model. 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.

Finally, there is also the option of Extended Storage, comprising of features such as additional hinged compartments, USB ports and 12V sockets, as well as multifunctional hooks and lashing rails in the boot.

Joining the BMW M Performance model of the M40d will be the petrol-powered six-cylinder in-line engine M40i as well as another straight-six diesel unit - xDrive30d. All model variants direct their engine’s power to the road via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive as standard, resulting in effortless progress over smooth roads and rough terrain alike. Gear selections can be made manually using the shift paddles on the steering wheel.

The BMW M Performance models and the BMW X4 xDrive30d are equipped with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offering exceptionally fast gear changes as well as a Launch Control function. The standard-fit Driving Experience Control switch lets drivers choose from SPORT, COMFORT and ECO PRO set-ups, while the BMW X4 M40i, BMW X4 M40d and BMW X4 xDrive30d models also add a SPORT+ mode.

A latest-generation six-cylinder in-line diesel engine gives the all-new BMW X4 xDrive30d vast reserves of pulling power.

The maximum output of 265PS and peak torque of 620Nm propel it to 62mph from rest in 5.8 seconds, with combined fuel consumption of 47.9mpg, equating to CO2 emissions of 156g/km.

The X4 xDrive20d is powered by a 190PS diesel engine whose torque peaks at 400Nm. It accelerates in 8.0 seconds from zero to 62mph and returns an average consumption of 52.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 142g/km. Prices start at £42,900 OTR.
