New BMW X4: Check Out All The Details In 245 Images

When BMW releases a new model, it tends to detail it in photos by the dozen. Hundreds, even. And so it was when it revealed the new X4 earlier this year. But now it’s dropped even more.

Now in its second generation, the new BMW X4 is larger yet lighter and altogether more advanced than the model it replaces.

It’s a “sports activity coupe,” in Bimmer parlance, serving as a sleeker take on the X3 and a smaller counterpart to the X6 that arguably started the trend.

On a global basis, BMW will offer the new X4 – internally dubbed as the G02 – with no fewer than seven engine options. In the US, those will be limited to just two: the xDrive30i and the more performance-oriented M40i. The former packs a 2.0-liter turbo four good for 248 horsepower (185 kW) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque, the latter with a 3.0-liter turbo six rated at 355 hp (265 kW) and 369 lb-ft (500 Nm).

With test drives now taking place in and around Spartanburg, South Carolina (where BMW makes it and most of its other crossovers), BMW has released no fewer than 245 photos of the new X4 – in both xDrive30i spec (which we’ll get in North America) and in M40d trim (which we won’t).

That last part’s a bit of a shame, because with 322 hp (240 kW) and 502 lb-ft (680 Nm) of torque, the top diesel model is nearly as quick as the gasoline-burning M40i, but runs on cheaper oil. But such is the state of diesel propulsion in America that the Bavarian automaker will only export the M40d from the US and not keep any here for us.

Powertrains (and their availability aside), the new X4 looks like a heck of a machine. That is, at least, for those who are willing to sacrifice a bit of utility for more sport in their sport-utility equation. But don’t take our word for it: check it out for yourself in all its slant-roofed splendor in the mega-gallery of images below.

    245 images of a boring crossover with that god awful coupe style roofline. Ugh!

    I’m really seeing the Mercedes GLC/GLE Coupe inspiration in the rear.. They should’ve took there time with it, not borrow design cues from it’s competition. Audi did great with the Q8 but it still won’t get me into a suv. I love my large sedans.

  • that should be allowed…

  • TheHake

    Still no map display in the instrument cluster???

    It’s neither attractive looking, nor like a BMW. The first X4 wasn’t a beauty, but this hasn’t improved in a single area outside, but quite the opposite;

    In plain language, “More of the same!”

    Nothing to see here that is new, move along.


    boring again

  • xXxMExXx

    The digital dash brings nothing except a different colorway for the drive modes; and actually seems to have a smaller “needle” in Sport mode. Fail.

  • Dennis James

    Boring and ugly. And I really mean it !

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Real question is will it sell and how many?

    • lagunas3ca

      Yes, about 500 per month.

    the back-end looks so terrible I keep scratching my head thinking why anyone at BMW thought it looked good enough to make it to production…
