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

2019 BMW X4 gets official rocking improved aero and improved suspension

The new X4 is going to be a model for the true BMW fans - the easiest differences to spot are up front related to the new grille size, which has been dramatically enlarged and, in the back, related to the new lighting clusters. With its more coupe-like body, the goal was to come up with BMW describes as the look of an "eye-catching athlete". The 2019 X4 is now just over 3-inches longer than its predecessor, while its wheelbase has grown just over 2-inches longer and its now 1.4-inches wider. BMW claims weight distribution is 50/50, front-to-rear.

A NEW BMW X4 has been launched with prices starting at £43,000 for the sporty SUV. The new model is around 50kg lighter than before and provides more boot space as well.

Slotting between the X3 and X5 SUVs in the BMW line-up, the X4 will rival the Range Rover Evoque when it comes to India.

At launch, BMW will offer a choice of powertrains, including the xDrive30i package making 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

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. Rear legroom has grown by 27mm, while the boot capacity is up to 525 litres - 25 litres more than in the current auto.

The second generation BMW X4 will debut at the Geneva show in March - just four years after the original went on sale.

New 2019 BMW X4 Is Larger, Lighter, And Loaded With Tech

BMW has fitted the latest version of its iDrive connected infotainment system and the new X4 is available with the Driving Assistant Plus package which offers semi-autonomous capability.

The vehicle brings together the signature features of a BMW X model with a coupe-like silhouette, providing the SUV with enhanced aerodynamics and sportier exterior design. Wheels range in size from 19 to 21 inches, and further options from BMW Individual stand to make it even more personal. If you want more performance, the range-topping M40i performance model packs a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six with 360 hp and 369 lb-ft, resulting in a brisker 0-62 miles per hour time of 4.8 seconds and a 155-mph top speed.

On top of the bigger engine, the M Performance X4 gets a bevy of M-branded, behind-the-scenes oily bits such as M Sport brakes with blue calipers, adjustable Adaptive M Suspension, an M Sport differential, and an M sports exhaust with trapezoid-shaped tips finished in dark chrome.

The new X4 adopts the new X3's basic aesthetic penned by BMW designer Calvin Luk.

But the core-selling model for the X4 is expected to be the 20d armed with 190hp 2.0-litre diesel-turbo, eight-speed automatic and xDrive four-wheel drive.
