2019 BMW X4 Is A Stylish Crossover With Practicality Issues

Thanks to its sleeker appearance than your usual run-of-the-mill crossovers – BMW’s own X3 included, the new X4 stands out in a sea of SUVs these days.

Regardless on where you stand on the matter of design, it’s hard to argue that it’s a well-built SUV, with plenty of engine options to choose from and a classy  interior.

British magazine WhatCar chose the xDrive 20d version of the second-gen BMW X4 for their review, and found it to be much quieter than the similar Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. Very little wind and road noise come inside, too, and thanks to the firmed up suspension, the vehicle handles remarkably well, with little body lean and the ability to absorb bumps, especially with the optional adaptive suspension.

If you have stepped inside the new BMW X3, then things will look very familiar when it comes to the X4. And that’s not a bad thing, because the build quality is up their with the best. One important feature that caught the eye of the reviewer was the iDrive infotainment system, which is easy to use thanks to the rotary dial.

The high-driving position makes visibility at the front fairly good, although you cannot say the same about the rear. Luckily, the BMW X4 comes with parking sensors and reversing camera, so squeezing it into a tight spot should be a walk in the park.

The front seats are very comfortable, with plenty of adjustment, and there are lots of storage spaces. Move at the back and the sloping roofline makes it quite hard to chauffeur tall adults. Also, ingress and egress at the rear is not that good either due to the small doors. But we’d better let the reviewer talk you through it in the following video.
