Overview

The most intriguing spinoff of BMW's compact 3 Series sedan, the X4 combines the ride height of a crossover with a fastback roofline reminiscent of a coupe. BMW refers to it as a sport activity vehicle, but we like to think of it as a high-style hatchback with a dose of ruggedness.

What's New for 2017

The new twin-turbo M40i replaces the 35i as the line's top model. A wireless charging station with built-in Wifi hotspot joins the option list.

Choosing Your BMW X4

The five-passenger X4 offers up to 49.4 cubic feet of cargo space, about the same as leading compact hatchbacks. Unlike those cars, the X4 comes with standard all-wheel drive and a choice of powerful turbocharged engine. The base 2-liter four-cylinder turbo produces 240 horsepower, while the newly available twin-turbo 3-liter six-cylinder makes 355 horsepower. Both engines use an eight-speed automatic transmission, which receives sport tuning and launch control when paired with the six-cylinder.

The lineup is divided in four- and six-cylinder models:

BMW X4

xDrive35i

Gets the 2-liter engine and a good deal of equipment, including adaptive xenon headlamps, wood or aluminum interior trim, power front seats with driver memory (leatherette), a sunroof, a power tailgate, rear parking sensors, 18-inch wheels, and a 12-speaker sound system with HD radio. You can select one of two optional trim lines to finish off your X4. The xLine carries lightweight Y-spoke 19-inch wheels, dark copper exterior trim, and specific interior finishes. The M Sport line gets its own 19-inch wheels, an aerodynamic body kit, and sportier trim details throughout.

BMW X4

M40i

Packs the twin-turbo six-cylinder, plus upgraded brakes, and the M Sport contents are standard. You also get a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system, which is optional on the xDrive28i./p>

Leather seating is part of the Premium Package, which also includes satellite radio and keyless access and ignition. The Cold Weather Package adds heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and retractable headlamp washers.

The Technology Package includes a head-up display, integrated smartphone apps, and a navigation system (also available separately). You get front parking sensors and a rearview camera with the Driver Assistance Package, while Driver Assistance Plus tacks on a surround-view camera system, active collision mitigation, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning. Adaptive cruise control can be added to the package at additional cost.

Rounding out your choices are adaptive full LED headlamps and active suspension dampers for increased stability around curves.

CarsDirect Tip

All of the option packages are worthwhile, but indulging in goodies kicks the X4 into a whole different price class. The Premium Package, with its leather interior, is the most essential in our view.

With BMW, you have a choice of five “sport activity vehicles," the brand’s euphemism for its luxury crossovers. The BMW X4 is more coupe-like than most crossovers and shares its underpinnings with the compact X3. Available in two trims, the 2017 X4 comes standard with all-wheel drive.

Pricing and Equipment

You have all-wheel drive all the time in the 2017 BMW X4. Based on the same rear-wheel drive architecture as the X3, as well as the 3 Series sedan and 4 Series coupe, the X$ model delivers both standard and enhanced “M” performance.

BMW X4

Now in its fourth model year, the current model benefits from one of the strongest powertrains in the segment.

Two turbocharged engines are offered. The standard 2-liter four-cylinder turbo makes 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. So equipped, the X4 delivers 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

Also available is a high-performance 3-liter six-cylinder that produces 355 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque, a bump of about 18 percent from last year. The six-cylinder model is rated at 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. It's also fast, capable of hitting 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds.

Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with manual shift control.

Pricing for the X4’s trims is as follows:

BMW X4

Choose the X4 xDrive28i and your cost is $45,550. Select the M40i and you’ll pay $58,100.

The xDrive28i offers a pair of lines: M Sport ($2,300) and xLine ($1,500).

The M Sport adds special 19-inch wheels, an aerodynamic kit, upgraded leather trim, sport seats, and a driver assistance package. The xLine also brings in special 19-inch wheels, gloss walnut trim, and other embellishments. These two lines are available on the base model only.

The Cold Weather package ($950) gets you heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and retractable headlight washers. The Lighting package ($1,900) adds adaptive full LED lights and automatic high beams. Two Driver Assistance packages ($700 and $1,700) are available, bringing in such features such as front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, blind spot monitoring, and surround-view cameras.

The Premium package ($2,200) provides amenities like upgraded leather, lumbar support, and a hands-free power liftgate. The Technology package ($2,750) includes navigation, a head-up display, and concierge services. Individual options include a wireless charger with WiFi hotspot ($400), an adaptive suspension ($1,000), and a Harman Kardon surround-sound system ($875).

Vehicle prices do not reflect a $995 destination charge.

Performance Pros

Choose the M40i and you’ll have access to copious amounts of power, 355 horsepower, in fact. The ability to race (and beat) certain sport coupes may be a point worth considering when shopping the top-end of the X4 line.

Performance Cons

It's hard to find fault with such a powerful model. Nevertheless, our reviewers noted the BMW X4 trails the Porsche Macan Turbo in performance.

Interior Pros

BMW X4
  • The M40i offers numerous items as standard equipment, including a thunderous Harman Kardon sound system. The base model offers this audio system as an upgrade.
  • Tech features such as a head-up display, automatic high beams, and park distance control are available. Although these items cost extra on the base model, BMW is second to none when it comes to safety technology.

Interior Cons

  • Just one glance at the X4’s profile should tell you that rear seat headroom. The coupe-like roof roofline is to blame. Cargo and rear passenger legroom are similarly restricted.
  • Android Auto is not available, and Apple CarPlay costs $300. Both are standard on most competitors.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

Not everyone needs the high-performance engine. Indeed, if you choose the base engine, you’ll find it offers good power and may be exactly what you want.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

The thick rear haunches may add design flair, but they also make create annoying blind spots.

The Bottom Line

You can’t go wrong when choosing any one of BMW’s five “X” series models. BMW entered the segment early, established benchmarks in design and quality, and has consistently maintained an edge, including in the X3. Basing the X3 on a rear-wheel drive platform provides handling characteristics some competing models do not offer. That said, we think an all-wheel drive BMW X3 has the widest appeal, especially for consumers residing in the snowbelt.
