A new X model joins today the Sports Activity Vehicles and Coupes family. The new BMW X4 is the second four-door crossover coupe to be launched by the Munich designers and combines the performance and capability of a premium Sports Activity Vehicle, with the style and elegance of traditional coupe.
The new BMW X4 is based on the technical blueprint of the BMW X3, but displays a sporting character very much its own and takes dynamics to another new level. It also previews the second-generation X6 which will debut this summer.
The large air intakes positioned on the outer edges of the front end and the character lines in the front apron allow the BMW X4 – with its signature BMW twin headlights and front fog lamps (both optionally with LED technology) – to maximize its visual presence on the road. The roofline reaches its highest point above the driver and then swoops down smoothly to the trailing edge of the tailgate, mimicking the design language of a classical sporting coupe.
The rear end, complete with L-shaped LED lights in exclusive X4 design and diffuser-look styling, likewise highlights the outstanding dynamic ability of the new BMW X4.
In the US, the X4 will be offered with a choice of two TwinPower Turbo engines.
The X4 xDrive28i, with a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $45,625 (including destination and handling), will feature the 240 horsepower 2.0-liter four cylinder engine while the top-of-line X4 xDrive35i, with an MSRP of $48,925 (including destination and handling) will output 300 horsepower from a 3.0-liter inline six. Both models include an 8-speed Steptronic sport automatic transmission with shift paddles.
The 2015 BMW X4 will make its world debut at the New York International Auto Show in April and begin production this spring exclusively at BMW’s US production facility in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
