BMW X4 is finally arrived! X4 is the younger sibling of the enormous sport SUV X6! And shares the same designed concept with X6 but with an additional seat at the rear. BMW X4 is the sport version of the X3 with coupe design. The success of the BMW X6 increased the pressure to develop an entry level sport and coupe looking X6 and we end with X4.
BMW X4 is basically a X3, the features are the same, the interior is more or less the same. Engines are the same but X4 drives more connected and aggressive. Also, look relatively better. However, I still cannot get use to the design philosophy of the X3 and X4!
All X4 models are four-wheel drive, there are not rear-wheel drive model at the moment due to the X3’s platform that does not any rear-wheel drive option. The available engines are starting with diesels; 20d (2-lt diesel / 190 HP / 400 Nm), 30d (3-lt / 258 HP / 560 Nm) and 35d (3-lt / 313 HP / 630 Nm). And petrol engines are 20i (2-lt / 184 HP / 270 Nm), 28i (2-lt / 245 HP / 350 Nm) and 35i (3-lt / 306 / 400 Nm). All engines are available with 8-speed automatic transmission. Acceleration and top speed figures are; 20d (8 seconds to 100 km/h and 212 km/h top speed), 30d (5,8 seconds to 100 km/h and 237 km/h top speed) and 35d (5.2 seconds to 100 km/h and 247 km/h top speed). And petrol engines are 20i (8.1 seconds to 100 km/h and 212 km/h top speed), 28i (6.4 seconds to 100 km/h and 232 km/h top speed) and 35i (5.5 seconds to 100 km/h and 247 km/h top speed). Petrol engine figures are only for information, I know none of your will buy a petrol X4 in Europe :)
