All-New BMW X4 xDrive30i In Dark Grey Means Business

The 2019 X4 made its world debut just 5 months ago in Geneva, and is only now beginning to arrive in showrooms.

Compared to its predecessor, the new X4 is bigger and more spacious, yet weighs 110 lbs (50 kg) less. It’s also packed full of BMW’s latest gadgetry and boasts a redesigned cabin.

Aesthetically, the 2019 X4 is more muscular, with a much larger front grille, adaptive LED headlights and sharper taillights with a 3D surface design. Its rear end still sort of reminds us of the Mercedes GLC Coupe, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

This particular car, on display at BMW’s Abu Dhabi showroom, is an xDrive30i M Sport model finished in what looks like Sophisto Grey. It also has a really nice red leather interior with lots of contrast stitching and wood trim.

Unlike the first X4, this new one has a more driver focused cabin, with a lower instrument panel and a higher seating position. There’s also more legroom in the back, a large 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with gesture and voice-control functions, plus a wide array of active safety systems.

The X4 xDrive30i is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot with 252 PS (248 HP) and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. It can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds and maxes out at 149 mph (240 km/h).

    BMW needs to take some risks with their interior design.

    • BlackPegasus

      Agreed. It’s a really nice redesign but that interior continues to bore. Meanwhile, Audi has taken a huge risk by totally revamping its interiors and eliminating all buttons with touchscreens only. Not sure I like that but at least they’re looking forward.

    I don’t like the latest taillight design at all. It doesn’t look right. Throws the whole backend out of proportion for some reason.

    • Merc1

      Yep that is exactly the problem with the design, that long ass rear overhang.

    Looks good except from the back which ruins the rest of the design.

    Now this would have looked fantastic had this been the X3

  • Brent Morrison

    It’s from that certain de aler again in the Middle East…. how much did they pay for this article?

    • BlackPegasus

      Not sure about the prices in the Middle East but I heard a well optioned 2019 X4 may cost about $61k here in the US. That could’ve been the M version though so don’t hold me to that.

      Yeah, it is. I was wondering if we will ever see it again to be honest.
