BMW has revealed the new X4 and the X4 M ahead of its public debut at 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The second-generation BMW X4 is positioned between the X3 and the X5 SUVs and will rival the Range Rover Evoque. While the previous generation X4 was not sold in India, the all-new BMW X4 is expected to be launched in India later this year.
Ahead of the new X4 arrival in India, the BMW X3 will be launched in May 2018. The coupe-like X4 shares the powertrain, platform, and equipment with the new X3 SUV. The all-new BMW X4 will debut at the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show. BMW claims the 2018 X4 has developed to offer better ride and handling dynamics compared to the previous model.
For the global markets, the new BMW X4 will be offered with a range of petrol and diesel engines: 2.0-litre petrol in 182bhp and 250bhp states of tune, a 2.0-litre diesel in 188bhp and 230bhp tunes, a 359bhp, 3.0-litre petrol engine and a 325bhp, 3.0-litre diesel unit. As for the India-spec X4, the SUV will share the powertrains of the X3.
The BMW X3 is powered by 250bhp, xDrive30i four-cylinder petrol, the 189bhp, xDrive20d four-cylinder diesel and the 263bhp, xDrive30d six-cylinder diesel model are expected on the new X4. Currently, BMW has not confirmed the details of the petrol engines. All the engines will come mated to a standard 8-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all four wheels through BMW's xDrive system.
On the inside, the new BMW X4 equipment includes BMW‘s latest iDrive infotainment system (that is offered with either a 6.5-inch display as standard or an optional 10.3-inch display). The infotainment system comes with voice and gesture control, as standard. The higher-spec variants will come with paddle shifters as standard.
All models of the new BMW X4 come with M Sport suspension and speed-sensitive electro-mechanical Servotronic steering as standard, while the suspension components are shared with the X3. The new X4 comes with 19-inch and 20-inch wheels, with the latter shod in 245/45 front and 275/40 rear tyres.
Upon launch, the new BMW X4 will rival the Range Rover Evoque in India. We expect the new X4 to be priced in the range of Rs 45 lakh and goes up to Rs 60 lakh depending on the variants.
DriveSpark Thoughts About The New BMW X4
The new BMW X4 looks brilliant, and along with a host of features, the SUV is expected to offer stiff competition to the Evoque in India. The Range Rover Evoque is quite popular in the country and will not make it easy for the new X4.
