See your dealer for details. There's none of that with the X4. The X4's interior is a lot like the X3's. It has a less-pure coupe profile and more of a sloping hunch, like a Kia Stinger or first-generation Porsche Panamera. Profile The updated design is far more evident when looking at the X4 in profile.
The equipment content of the M40i is similar to those of the xDrive30i, though it includes an appearance package with more shapely bumpers and darker exterior trim. The Premium Package features a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, head-up display, and gesture control for the iDrive infotainment system. The lower-priced model can hit 60 mph in six seconds flat, but without those extra two cylinders and their consequently more engaging noise, the four-cylinder X4 is more four-wheeled fashion statement than interesting performance choice. The gentler rake for the rear portion of the roof helps make the vehicle appear more aerodynamic, too, by providing more of a teardrop shape to it. With a zero-to-60 time of 4. It's no sports car, but with a standard M Sport suspension, it's competent enough in the corners.
Interior space improves from the previous model, with rear-seat passengers gaining an extra inch of legroom while cargo space expands by a cubic foot with all seats in place. A head-up display and a panoramic sunroof are optional, as are additional active-safety features such as adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. Compared to the X3 on which it is based, interior space is compromised. Primary competitor Mercedes-Benz now fits its models with a dashboard that combines digital instruments and a wide infotainment screen, which creates a unified look. All X4s get standard sport seats, with the X4 M40i getting upgraded M-specific chairs.
We rate the redesigned 2019 X4 at 6. It's longer, wider, and slightly lower, with a stiffer chassis, lower curb weight, and a more aerodynamic shape. Variable sport steering, automatic differential braking, cornering brake control, and hill descent control are standard, and the X4 sits on 19-inch aluminum wheels. If you hate driving quickly, though, you'll never know the difference between the four- and six-cylinder. As mentioned already, the X4 comes standard with a 10.
I know this is really a 5-door hatchback. Out of the canyons and creeping along our street drive loop through downtown Brevard, North Carolina, the X4 calms and soothes in accordance with the more relaxed driving environment. As mentioned previously, the X4 provides 8 inches of ground clearance and a water fording depth of 19. The X4 nonetheless impresses in the twisties more than it ought to on paper. While the X3 might have more cargo space, the X4 has standard all-wheel drive and respectable performance.
It might be more helpful to think of the X4 as an alternative to a performance sedan. See your dealer for details. Compared to the low bar that was the previous-generation X4, the 2019 model is certainly an improvement. Our track outing began with hot laps around the performance center's bespoke racetrack led by company hot shoe and chief instructor Matt Mullins. Rear passengers are treated to an extra inch of legroom compared to the outgoing X4, and with the rear seats folded, there's as much as 50.
It's a similar story inside. The 2019 X4 has more legroom for rear-seat passengers than its predecessor, but, the sloping roofline requires a careful approach to avoid a painful head knock against the sheetmetal. If this situation changes, we will update this space with a score. A decade from now, the X4 will probably look about as cool as a pair of baggy cargo shorts or an unbuttoned dress shirt worn over a T-shirt. The Audi is more of an upright, traditional-looking crossover, making the its ideal rival. Exterior There are some nip-and-tuck trim changes along the exterior that add a little visual flair along the sides.
The X4 M40i is equipped with a turbocharged 3. The M40i also lets buyers add softer leather trim and more interior features.

The problem was, committing to a downsized version of the X6 meant function had to give way to form, and backseat headroom and cargo space suffered. And although it initially wants to understeer, if you really push it, you can even hang the tail out for a well-controlled power slide. Interior space is not an issue, at least for front seat occupants. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
