The BMW X4 was an instant hit and it is back 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.
Around 200,000 units of the previous generation were sold and with this new standout and sporty exterior design, BMW are likely to surpass that figure.
The car is 81 millimetres longer which takes it up to a total length 4,752 millimetres. It has 54
millimetres added to the wheelbase (now 2,864 millimetres) and an extra 37 millimetres of width (1,918 millimetres) which 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.

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.
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.
The new BMW X4 will be available in South Africa in the third quarter of 2018. Only the xDrive20i, xDrive20d, xDrive30i, xDrive30d (last quarter of 2018) and M40i will be available. The M40d will join the lineup in the first quarter 2019.
