The first BMW X4 M first came into our radar in 2016 when a source close to BMWBLOG revealed the potential model along with its X3 M brother. Fast forward eighteen months later and first photos of the X4 M are starting to pop-up across the globe. This new spy image hails from Spartanburg, South Carolina where a heavy camouflaged X4 M prototype is undergoing testing. BMW’s sportiest compact SAC is based on the second-generation X4 which coincidentally was fully exposed this week.

Along with the X3 M, the M version of the X4 will sport a beefed-up design with aggressive lines, usual M iconic design cues, flared wheel arches and a lower stance.  A character line runs from the front wheel arch on both door handles to the rear lights, which – are finally running used full LED technology.

Both compact M SUVs will cater to a small niche of customers looking for practicality, performance and all-wheel drive experience in a compact Sports Utility Vehicle.

Under the hood, the X4 M comes with the S55 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine found in the M3 and M4. The power output is rumored to be between 450 and 500 horsepower.

BMW will officially put the X4 M on sale in 2019.

    Some say that will be new s58 engine. But i cant understand the difference. Few years ago BMW made some experiments with electric turbo…

    BMW could do really great things with the X4 M, i hope they’re going at it with everything they got. But already looking at the front facia on the spy shots it seems more of a looker than the regular X4

      i really love the rear but the front doesnt match imo maybe in darker colours so it can hide the lines lol i think its much better looking than the GLC. the glc is ugly just looks odd not even like a coupe. performance wise i think the X4M will be faster too I hope the front bumper on the X4M will be super aggressive and different from the regular M sport model

        Pics of the 2nd gen X4 brings a smile to the face. You’re right, the front doesn’t seem to match the rear but that may just be angles. The coupe slope is well shaped now. The new modern interior will make a huge difference too. Looks like they’ll offer an M40d option for European markets. The X4M will be the sweet one though. Do you reckon the X4M will be priced in the same range as GLC Coupe AMG63/63s? Since X4M will run on 6 cylinders for about 400+ hp and GLC Coupe AMG 63/63s runs a V8

    Horatiu, can you kindly inform your people (decision makers) at BMW not to try what I think they’re attempting to try. From the spy shots of the non-camouflaged upcoming X4, I’ve just noticed that the headlights are not the new hexagonal designed ones as found on the new X3. If BMW reckon they can reshape the old headlights and simply fix them on the new X4 and expect me to be happy enough to just go buy it, then they need to have a good re-think. I have means and powers to exercise options. So please inform them that I won’t be happy with the old re-shaped headlights. And all my good friends who I’ve convinced to buy the new X4, when it’s out, won’t be happy either. BMW have enough time to do the right thing and I expect them to. Looking forward to new headlights on new X4 car.

    Hope the rear design of the new X4M will not be as sissi as the new X4.
