       BMW reveals redesigned X4 crossover

Globally, the new X4 will be offered with three gasoline and four diesel engine options, ranging in output from 184 horsepower and 360.

When you look at it from a certain angle, it has kept its crossover coupe shape intact. If you get a sense of déjà vu, no surprise, considering the 2019 X4 shares most of its underpinnings with the latest BMW X3.

The M40i is the first of two performance variants from the M skunk works, boasting a three-litre straight-six turbopetrol rated for 265kW at 5500 revs and 500Nm from 1520-4800rpm. As before, the X4 combines rakish coupe styling and SUV practicality for a more image-conscious take on on family transport.

There are some nip-and-tuck trim changes along the exterior that add a little visual flair along the sides.

The X4 is 81mm longer, has a 54mm stretched wheelbase, 37mm wider and 3mm lower than its predecessor.


Highlighted features include an acoustic windscreen to reduce noise in the cabin, LED headlights, tail lights and fog lights, and twin exhaust pipes.

Also playing their part are the Dynamic Stability Control system and Performance Control function, which varies the amount of toque going to the rear wheels to suit the conditions. The M Sport model takes the more traditional BMW route of racier styling - aerodynamic splitters and sideskirts are joined by black accents and sporty alloys.

The options list also includes a wireless implementation of Apple CarPlay.

The all-new BMW X4 (fuel consumption combined: 9.0 - 5.4 l/100 km; Carbon dioxide emissions combined: 209 - 142 g/km) makes its mark by delivering individuality, dynamism and innovation in far greater doses. Drop the 40/20/40-split rear seats, and you have up to 1,430 litres at your disposal, some 30 more than in the current auto, but nearly 200 less than the X3. And, if you choose one of the xLine, M Sport X or M Sport models, that is reflected inside, with specific seats and trim materials. But the M40d (the version pictured) is a tempting proposition, with 326 hp and a massive 501 lb-ft of torque to match the M40i model's top speed and come in just a tenth behind its 0-62 time (at 4.9 seconds) - but return much better fuel economy on oil: as much as 47.9 mpg on the Euro cycle instead of 31.4.

All engines come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox as standard and M Sport suspension is on all models. The base 20d is powered by a 190PS TwinPower turbo-diesel engine while the performance topper M40i gets a 360PS, six-cylinder petrol engine. Driver assist systems include blind spot detection, lane departure warning, daytime pedestrian protection, frontal collision warning with city collision mitigation, rear cross traffic alert for the rear and speed limit information.
