Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

  • Lease: From $559 for 36 months
  • Rebate: $2,500 APR credit
  • Finance: From 1.9% APR for 60 months

2021 X4 is here:

The 2021 X4 is available, while the 2020s sold out last year. The current model is a carryover and is stocked in limited numbers. More than likely you will need to order one.

The current offers are good through February 1, 2021. We’re not expecting any changes before then.

Lease from $559 per month:

A lease offer for the 2021 X4 utility vehicle is in place. Here, you'll pay $559 per month for 36 months with $3,999 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost is $670, which is about average.

BMW’s lease deals include 7,500 miles per year of driving allowance. At lease end, you will pay a $350 disposition fee.

Rebates and other cash deals:

There are no cashback incentives available this month, but there is a $2,500 APR Credit.

Also, recent college graduates will find a bonus worth $1,000 for eligible shoppers. In addition, members of the U.S. military will find a bonus, with at least $500 available, depending on the model.

One of the stipulations for these bonuses, however, is that you will have to finance or lease through BMW Financial.

Finance from 1.9-percent APR:

You can finance your 2021 X4 for 1.9-percent APR for up to 60 months. The $2,500 APR Credit is reflected in this offer.

This is a competitive finance offer and it’s in line with what other luxury brands charge.

2021 BMW X4 Overview

Matthew Pilgrim
Automotive Editor

What's New

The 2021 BMW X4 carries over with a few notable changes. The compact luxury crossover SUV now gets Android Auto, satellite radio, and BMW's Active Driving Assistant suite as standard. The range-topping trim further adds wireless charging and wi-fi capability.

Choosing Your BMW X4

The BMW X4 is available in two trim levels: 30i and M40i. Starting prices range from $52,595 including destination for the base 30i to $62,695 for the M40i.

Engine Choices

The X4 utilizes turbocharged engines that are shared across the brand’s lineup. The 30i is equipped with a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder motor, while the M40i gets the venerable 3.0-liter turbo-six.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder245 hp258 lb-ft25 mpg
2.0L Turbo 6-Cylinder382 hp368 lb-ft23 mpg

Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and both trims get standard all-wheel drive, which BMW calls "xDrive."

With launch control engaged, BMW says the M40i will accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. It takes the 30i 6.0 seconds flat to do the deed.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The X4 is over 2 inches shorter than its more utility-focused platform-mate, the BMW X3. Yet, it retains 8 inches of ground clearance for deep snow or off-road excursions.

The X4 seats five passengers, however, the rear passengers are only afforded 35.5 inches of leg room and 37.2 inches of head room. These figures are about 1 and 2 inches shy of the X3, respectively.

The sloped roofline takes its biggest toll on the rear cargo area, which measures just 18.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 50.5 cubic feet with it folded down.

Safety Features

The X4 includes BMW’s Active Driving Assistant as standard equipment, which includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert. Front and rear parking sensors are also standard, while the M40i adds automatic high beams.

Lane keeping assist and adaptive cruise control require ordering the Driving Assistance Professional Package ($1,700), which, in turn, requires the Convenience Package ($1,050) for a total price of $2,750. An automated parking system and a surround-view camera are bundled in the Parking Assistance Package ($700).


The X4 is equipped to impress on the technology front. A standard 10.25-inch touchscreen with the brand's iDrive 7.0 infotainment system is supplemented by a 12.3-inch instrument cluster digital display.

The X4 also includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, HD radio, navigation, two USB ports, and a 12-speaker HiFi audio system. The M40i further gets wi-fi hot spot capability and a wireless charging pad. These two features can be found in the aforementioned Convenience Package on the 30i.

A head-up display and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon system are on the options list.

30i - From $52,595

The X4 30i is equipped with niceties such as LED headlights and fog lights, 19-inch wheels, heated and power-folding side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a panoramic sunroof, and a power tailgate.

The interior arrives with 10-way power front seats with adjustable side bolsters and thigh extensions, leatherette upholstery, wood trim, and three-zone automatic climate control.

Upgrading from leatherette to leather seating surfaces requires $1,450, while heated front seats are a $500 option and a heated steering wheel goes for another $190. Ventilated seats are only $350 but also require leather seating and the Premium Package.

The Premium Package is $2,800 and includes a head-up display, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, wi-fi capability, keyless entry, and lumbar support for the front seats.

M40i - From $62,695

The M40i adds the 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, an adaptive suspension, upgraded brakes, blue calipers, an aerodynamic body kit, and a hands-free trunk. The interior benefits from 14-way power front seats and a dashboard wrapped in faux leather.

Exclusive options include gloss black exterior trim for $300, 21-inch wheels for $1,900, and a sport rear differential for $1,300 that further enhances the sportiness.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2021 BMW X4 30i is a bit underwhelming in terms of features for the price. The Premium Package, leather seating, and Driving Assist Professional Plus must be added to make it feel like a proper luxury vehicle. However, the base X4 is almost $59,000 at this point, which begins to challenge its sense of value.
