Set to square up against the Mercedes GLC Coupe when it goes on sale, the X4 features a thoroughly reworked exterior, a range of modern petrol and diesel engines, up-to-date driver assistance and safety features and an improved interior.
For the first time, the X4 range will be topped by a pair of M Performance models, the M40i and M40d, both with six-cylinder engines and a unique suspension set-up. That range does include petrol engines, but despite the current anti-diesel sentiments in the United Kingdom, they won't initially come here, if at all.
The new BMW X4 is marginally longer (by 81mm) and wider (by 37mm) than the outgoing model, with 54mm added to the car's wheelbase and a mere 3mm taken from its height.
The traditional BMW kidney grille is larger and has a new three-dimensional look. And now it's revealed the replacement for that model, too.
The new X4 will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show in the first week of March and is scheduled for release in South Africa during the third quarter of 2018, in a shortened line-up of one diesel and three petrol variants, with two more diesels to follow - each driving via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and all-wheel xDrive.
There's a wide array of available powertrains - three petrol and three diesel units, with power outputs between 135 kW/184 hp and 265 kW/360 hp (fuel consumption combined: 9.0 - 5.4 l/100 km [31.4 - 52.3 mpg imp]; Carbon dioxide emissions combined: 209 - 142 g/km). The new model is around 50kg lighter than before and provides more boot space as well. It's also supposed to be 10 percent better in aerodynamic efficiency, pulling the coefficient of drag down to 0.30, which BMW claims is class leading. The new BMW also receives Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist systems, as standard. The headline powertrains are in the new M trims. Voice control is also standard, but as an option, you can upgrade to the Professional system, which brings a 10.25-inch touchscreen, or specify gesture control, which allows you to operate some functions with a wave of the hand.
Sporty new seats, a larger navi display, a bigger HUD and a standard panoramic roof. Average economy of up to 51.4mpg is claimed, along with Carbon dioxide emissions of between 163 and 168g/km, depending on exact specification. For reference, that's faster than most versions of the Porsche 718 Cayman. This means it'll accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.8 seconds and return an advertised 44.1mpg and 170g/km of CO2. The now sole petrol option is also the most powerful, the M40i with 360hp and a 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds.However two more mainstream units are expected to join the range with 186 and 255hp respectively.
Overall, there are ore options available on this X4 than on the previous model.
