Following the numerical order of things, the BMW X4 fits snugly between the X3 and X5 in the brand’s “sport activity vehicle” lineup, but where those are both tall hatchbacks, the X4 is, um, different. Its four-door coupe body promises style, but at the expense of practicality.

What's New for 2018

Built in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the BMW X4 is a carryover model for 2018 and sees minimal changes. A rearview camera and BMW’s ConnectedDrive services are now standard for all BMW vehicles. X4-specific updates are relegated to packages and pricing.


Choosing Your BMW X4

All 2018 BMW X4 models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive as standard equipment with a choice of two engines. The entry level uses a twin-turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 240 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A larger twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter, straight-six pumps out 355 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque.

Fuel economy is EPA rated at 20 city miles per gallon, 28 highway, and 23 combined for the smaller-output engine while the V6 should return 18 city, 25 highway, and 21 combined. Plan on filling your X4, regardless of engine, with premium fuel.

The 2018 BMW X4 is available in two trim levels:


Starting at $48,595 (including $995 destination fee), the BMW X4 xDrive 28i receives a notable $2,050 MSRP increase for 2018. Outfitted with 19-inch wheels and all-season run-flat tires, the 28i also features automatic wipers, adaptive Xenon headlights, LED fog lights, power-folding heated side mirrors with auto-dimming, and a power tailgate as standard.

Interior amenities include keyless ignition, a rearview camera, leatherette seats with 8-way power adjustments in front, 40/20/40-split seats in back, a multifunction Sport leather steering wheel, automatic climate control, a moonroof, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, ambient lighting, a nine-speaker stereo, BMW's iDrive infotainment system, and BMW ConnectedDrive telematics.

A start/stop system, adaptive cruise control, four-mode driving dynamics control, hill descent control, and park distance control are standard technology.

A Cold Weather Package ($950) adds retractable headlight washers and a heat setting for the steering wheel and all seating positions, which strikes us as a bargain. A Driving Assistance Package ($1,700) includes blind spot monitoring, a head-up display, a premium information instrument cluster, and active driving assistant. For an extra $1,200, a Driving Assistance Plus Package updates the active driving assistant and adds pre-collision mitigation. One caveat is that navigation ($1,700), which is available a la carte, must be paired with the Driving Assistance package.

The M Sport Package ($1,700) adds performance run-flat tires and an aerodynamic body kit, special exterior trim, sportier seats, brushed aluminum interior trim, and an M steering wheel. Wheels and tires can be upgraded to 20-inchers with performance rubber for $950. The Premium Package ($2,200) offers lumbar support, SiriusXM radio with a one-year subscription, leather upholstery, and enhanced keyless entry.

A Lighting Package ($1,900) adds LED adaptive headlights and automatic high beams. The Parking Assistance Package ($700) adds a surround-view camera system and parking assistant, which, when traveling at speeds less than 22 mph, will search for available parking spaces as well as steer the vehicle into position.

Separately, heated front seats ($500), wireless charging with Wi-Fi hotspot capability ($400), a premium Harman Kardon sound system ($875), Apple CarPlay-only compatibility ($300), dynamic damper control ($1,000), and blind spot monitoring ($500) can be added piecemeal.


With an MSRP increase of $1,150, the X4 xDrive M40i starts at $60,245 and includes features of the Premium and M Sport packages plus a sport exhaust, 19-inch double-spoke wheels with performance run-flat rubber, a Harman Kardon audio system, leather seating, 14-way power-adjustable front seats with lumbar support and side bolsters, and a specifically-tuned sport steering rack and dynamic damper control.

Outside of those performance-focused changes, the M40i carries over all of the xDrive28i's packages and options.

CarsDirect Tip

One would be hard-pressed to keep a 2018 BMW X4 at less than $50,000 due to the high-priced options. For example, Apple CarPlay requires navigation, which turns into a $2,000 bundle toward a $50,595 price tag. Instead, spend a little extra for the safety and driver assistance features offered in the Driving Assistance, Driving Assistance Plus, and Parking Assistance packages (with required navigation) for a $53,895 xDrive 28i. Even with more added options, the final sticker will remain less than $55,000.

If you absolutely need more dynamic luxury, move up to the xDrive M40i with Driving Assistance, Parking Assistance, navigation, and heated front seats for $64,845. Keep in mind, though, that this also means opting for the no-charge, non-metallic exterior paints—black or white for 28i, or white only for M40i.
