BMW X4 Expands With More Interior Space, Tech

The design team has applied its latest styling to the new X4, with more pronounced kidney grilles, stretched out and slimmer headlights, with elongated LED taillights at the back, and new front and rear bumper bars. The options list now includes electrically adjustable seats that can be heated and ventilated, three-zone climate control and a larger panoramic glass roof than in the old auto.

The most efficient is the X4 xDrive20d, powered by a 190PS diesel engine. The petrol engines for the X4 will come with the following specifications.

There will be a few models available at launch, with the usual suspects of powertrain options as well as a new one.

BMW will also bring across its M Sport X trim level alongside the usual M Sport and X Line styling packages, which like on the smaller X2 will feature grey styling front and rear and wheel options right up to 21-inches.

While not likely to see much serious off-road use, BMW says the 2019 X4 is not just a soft-roader.

Despite its bulk, it's pretty nifty on the road in the top spec diesel (starting from £55k) punching out 326bhp with 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and 155mph top speed.

Skipper Cahill Backs Conte as He Concedes Chelsea Were 'Abysmal' in Loss
The Blues have suffered defeats in their last two games following a 3-0 defeat by Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge last week. I mean yes, we were all thinking it, but you don't need to say it, Antonio.

It goes from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. Standard on all models come the eight-speed Steptronic transmission and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive. The 30d uses a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine with 620Nm of torque.

The front seats have been redesigned, though BMW has not mentioned any updates to the X4's particularly flat and uncomfortable rear seats, except to say its passengers now have a bit more knee and leg room. That system is now based around a 6.5-inch display atop the dashboard, while an optional navigation setup pushes that out to 10.25 inches and adds a touchscreen function. It will carry a price tag of $50,450. A set of standard, gray 19-inch wheels round out the M40i's visual upgrades.

BMW also offers its "Parking Assistant Plus" pack on the X4, which includes a panoramic parking camera system with top-down and 3D views, as well as helping the you select and park in both parallel spots and bays. Optional safety features include active cruise control, which can bring the auto to a stop and pull away again in traffic, along with traffic-sign recognition and lane-departure warning systems.

Meanwhile, BMW has also expanded the range of driver-assistance packages.

Whether or not you agree with BMW's "sports activity coupe" nomenclature, the truth is, weirdo swoopy crossovers are a hit around the globe.

Instrument panel and center stack designs are reminiscent of what's found in the X3, as is the 10.25-inch infotainment display, housing BMW's latest version of its iDrive system.
