The BMW X4 arrived as a fully redesigned model in 2019, giving one of the few coupe-like compact SUVs on the market a sportier design and a robust lineup of engines. We expect the 2022 BMW X4 to arrive with a refreshed design.
With the 2022 X4, BMW has updated the compact SUV’s exterior design with an updated look. At the front, the X4 wears larger grilles and an updated front fascia. The rear end of the X4 receives redesign taillights and larger exhaust tips. BMW has retained the X4’s blunt rear end and rakish rear end for that coupe-like design.
On the inside, changes to the 2022 X4 are minor. The dashboard has been slightly updated with larger air vents and updated HVAC controls. Beyond these changes, the 2022 X4 will continue to feature a modern, sleek design on the inside. Because of its sporty design, the X4 has less rear legroom than the more traditional X3.
BMW has updated the X4’s list of tech features for the 2022 model year. Every X4 comes with a 12.3-inch central display and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Other standard tech features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, 12 audio speakers, satellite radio, two USB ports, and Bluetooth.
Two engines will be available with the 2022 X4. The standard engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The X4 M40i trim is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that is rated at 382 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The X4 M40i trim also comes with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system.
On the safety front, the 2022 BMW X4 will come with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning as standard. Optional safety features include adaptive cruise control, active lane keeping assist, side collision avoidance, BMW’s semi-autonomous Extended Traffic Jam Assistant and rear cross traffic alert.
