The all-new BMW X4 (fuel consumption combined: 9.2 – 5.6 l/100 km]; CO2 emissions combined: 210 – 148 g/km)* makes its mark by delivering individuality, dynamism and innovation in far greater doses. It is here to write the next chapter in the success story of the first ever Sports Activity Coupe at the premium end of the mid-size class. Approximately 200,000 units have been sold around the world since the first-generation X4 was launched in 2014.

The all-new BMW X4 underscores its individual character with significantly enhanced driving dynamics, standout exterior design accentuating the car’s sporting instincts, a further refined premium ambience in the interior, state-of-the-art driver assistance systems and leading-edge connectivity technologies. Added to which, the dynamic and extravagant aura of the Sports Activity Coupe is further highlighted by the addition of two BMW M Performance models to the line-up.

Design: dynamic proportions and athletic styling.
The exterior design of the all-new BMW X4 is a case study in muscular dynamics and commanding presence. Clean surfacing and high-class, modern accents headline this updated interpretation of the unmistakable X4 aesthetic. The X4 assumes the role of eye-catching athlete in the BMW X model family.

An increase of 81 millimetres in exterior length to 4,752 millimetres, 54 millimetres added to the wheelbase (now 2,864 millimetres) and an extra 37 millimetres of width (1,918 millimetres) lend the all-new BMW X4 dynamically stretched proportions. In the centre of the striking front end stands a large BMW kidney grille in three-dimensional look. Twin LED headlights with dynamic contours as well as horizontal fog lamps form a new interpretation of the familiar six-eyed face espoused by BMW X models.


The precise shoulderline – which takes in the door openers en route to the rear lights – and the character line between the wheel arches break up the surfaces of the car’s flanks. This creates clearly defined haunches, which are additionally emphasised by the drawn-in glasshouse at the rear. The coupe-style roofline slides into the rear window with an elegant flourish before dipping down more steeply to the rear. Horizontal lines, the LED rear lights that project out from the car’s body with their three-dimensional shaping, and the twin exhaust tailpipes (shared by all engine variants) magnify the width of the rear end.

Standalone design features and model-specific 19-inch light-alloy wheels are part of the specification for the M Sport X and M Sport model variants, which allow the design of the exterior and interior to be tailored to reflect personal tastes. And BMW X4 customers can now also choose from the BMW Individual range of options.

Interior: sporting character with a modern, premium feel.
The interior of the all-new BMW X4 exudes a modern, premium feel combined with eye-catching dynamism. The driver-focused layout of the cockpit, low instrument panel and slightly raised seating position all help to create a supremely assured driving experience. Redesigned sports seats with boldly contoured side bolsters and knee pads on the sides of the centre console add to the sense of sportiness.

Top-class materials, precise build quality and meticulously crafted details set the tone for the updated premium character of the all-new BMW X4. The surfaces of the instrument panel and door panelling merge smoothly into one another, while the X logos embossed into the electroplated surfaces of the doors provide striking details. Further splashes of electroplated detailing, the new Vernasca leather upholstery and an instrument panel in Sensatec trim can all be found on the extended list of optional extras, as can three-zone automatic climate control, active seat ventilation, ambient lighting, as well as the Ambient Air package, the BMW Display Key and the generously dimensioned panoramic glass roof.

Large stowage trays, roomy door pockets, cupholders and various storage compartments are all testimony to the functional qualities of the all‑new BMW X4. There are three full-size seats in the rear offering more legroom than before. Load space can be expanded from 525 to a maximum of 1,430 litres by folding down the sections of the rear backrest, with its standard 40:20:40 split. And the optional cargo function allows the backrest angle to be individually adjusted, too.

Driving experience: dynamic, efficient and versatile.
Customers will be able to choose from two petrol engines and one diesel engine from the launch of the all-new BMW X4. The line-up is spearheaded by a duo of BMW M Performance models. The six-cylinder in-line petrol engine under the bonnet of the BMW X4 M40i (fuel consumption combined: 9.2 – 9.0 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 210 g/km)* musters up maximum output of 265 kW. The BMW X4 M40d (fuel consumption combined: 6.6 – 6.4 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 173 – 170 g/km)* is powered by a 240 kW straight-six diesel unit. The BMW X4 xDrive20d draws its drive power from a four-cylinder diesel engine to generate 140 kW (fuel consumption combined: 5.6 – 5.4 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 148 g/km)* and 135 kW in the BMW X4 xDrive20i (fuel consumption combined: 7.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 178 g/km)*. All model variants direct their engine’s power to the road via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive as standard.


The all-new BMW X4 boasts a marked increase in agility combined with a high degree of ride comfort, courtesy of chassis technology that has been systematically refined and honed for the specific requirements of the Sports Activity Coupe and a centre of gravity lower than that of the BMW X3. Standard specification includes not only M Sport suspension and the Performance Control function, but also variable sport steering. M Sport brakes and Adaptive Suspension with electronically controlled dampers are both optionally available. The BMW M Performance models come equipped as standard with 20-inch light-alloy wheels, specially designed M Sport brakes and an M Sport differential, which generates a precise locking effect at the rear wheels to help the car power out of corners with refreshing dynamic élan.

An intelligent material mix has made it possible to bring about a substantial weight saving, not just in the chassis but also in the body’s construction and numerous other components besides. The BMW EfficientLightweight measures make the new model up to 50 kilograms lighter than its predecessor (allowing for equipment variations). The aerodynamic properties of the Sports Activity Coupe have also been enhanced, as a result of which the all-new BMW X4 sets a new benchmark in its segment with a drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.30.
Expanded operating system, cutting-edge driver assistance systems and new BMW ConnectedDrive functions.
The iDrive display and operating system in the all-new BMW X4 includes a freestanding Control Display that is optionally available in a 10.25-inch version with touchscreen functionality. The voice control system has undergone further improvement and can now follow freely formulated instructions. BMW gesture control, the multifunctional instrument display and the latest generation of the BMW Head-Up Display are also available as options.

The range of comfort- and safety-enhancing driver assistance systems has been extended once again. The Driving Assist Plus safety package includes the new-generation Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, the Steering and lane control assist, the Lane Keep Assist with active side collision protection. The new Parking Assist Plus feature also comprises the Top View, Panorama View and 3D View functions. The Remote 3D View function gives drivers the ability to call up a three-dimensional live image of their vehicle and its immediate vicinity on their smartphone. Also available as an option is the telephony with wireless charging for compatible smartphones.

New digital services from BMW ConnectedDrive offer comprehensive assistance with personal mobility planning. The standard ConnectedDrive Services provide the basis for accessing features such as Real Time Traffic Information. The mobility assistant BMW Connected interfaces the vehicle with touchpoints – such as smartphones, smartwatches and voice-controlled personal assistants – via the flexible Open Mobility Cloud platform. The additional features of BMW Connected+ offer an even greater degree of personalisation. BMW is also the first carmaker to offer a secure server connection for exchanging and editing emails, calendar entries and contact details – thanks to the Microsoft Office 365 function, which users can select from the ConnectedDrive Store.


All figures relating to performance, consumption and emissions are provisional.

The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany. The range shown considers the different sizes of the selected wheels/tyres and the selected items of optional equipment, and may change during the configuration process. The values for the vehicles marked * are already based on the new WLTP legislation and have been translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure comparability between the vehicles. With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle-related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2 emissions, the CO2 values may differ from the values stated here (depending on national legislation).

Further information on official fuel consumption figures and specific CO2 emission values of new passenger cars is included in the following guideline: 'Leitfaden über den Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und den Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen' (Guideline for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption of new passenger cars), which can be obtained free of charge from all dealerships and at
