First videos of the new 2018 BMW X4

2019-BMW-X4-gets-the-all-new-look

BMW slightly revised the exterior of the X4 and stretched the dimensions, similar to the X3 that was new for previous year.

BMW practically invented the crossover coupe with the launch of the X6 in 2007.

The X4 is 81mm longer, has a 54mm stretched wheelbase, 37mm wider and 3mm lower than its predecessor. Short overhangs and subtle hexagonal wheel arches contribute to the vehicle's athletic look that emphasizes its 50:50 front-to-rear weight distribution. BMW says the new X4's front and rear tracks are both wider, and the aerodynamics have been improved, resulting in a very slippery drag coefficient of 0.30.

The launch of a new version of the X3 has provided BMW with the opportunity to reinvent its coupe SUV - what the brand calls a "Sports Activity Coupe". The X4 has received a more premium feel for the 2019 model year.

Under the hood, the BMW X4 xDrive30i will come with a 248-horsepower, twin-scroll turbo four-cylinder. The now sole petrol option is also the most powerful, the M40i with 360hp and a 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds.However two more mainstream units are expected to join the range with 186 and 255hp respectively. The luggage area retains its 18.5-cubic-foot capacity, though it can rise to 50.5 cubes if the 40:20:40 split rear seat is folded flat, either from the seat or remotely from the cargo area.

There's an oversized 10.25-inch touchscreen, optional head-up display (now 75 percent larger), and both gesture- and voice-control functionality.

On "The Ingraham Angle", Laura Ingraham said Trump should wear this criticism from Bush as a "badge of honor". He added: "It's problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system".

Two powertrains will be offered in the US. Acceleration 0 - 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, top speed 250 km/h. Wheels range in size from 19 to 21 inches, and further options from BMW Individual stand to make it even more personal.

There's also a Driving Assistant Plus safety package available with features including steering and lane control assistant at speeds between 0 and 130mph, lane-keeping assist with active side collision protection, and crossing traffic warning and crossroads warning systems.

There is also the X4 M40i, which comes with gasoline-fueled and turbocharged inline six's 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. The dashboard is dominated by a large iDrive infotainment screen, which measures 6.5 inches as standard or 10.25 inches if the optional "Navigation System Professional" is selected.

All X4s direct their engine's power to the road via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive as standard, while Experience Control lets the driver choose from Sport, Comfort and Eco Pro set-ups.

BMW has revealed the new X4 will be priced from £42,900 and is available to order from February 15.
