BMW's X4 sits at the centre of the manufacturer's SUV range as a mid-sized family model that offers plenty. As expected, the vehicle drives confidently to reward your time at the wheel, and this satisfying ride is enjoyed from within a luxurious and spacious cabin.
You and your passengers sit high above the road in the cockpit, giving an excellent view of your surroundings and all other motorists. From here you can admire the premium materials which feature throughout, including the stitched leather upholstery and your choice of stunning inlays. The leather steering wheel and ergonomic gear lever project a further sense of elegance at first touch, while all other controls fall close to hand to simplify your overall experience. The iDrive controller located between driver and passenger gives simple command over the sophisticated sat nav system with integrated display, while buttons mounted to the steering wheel allow control of the audio and hands-free telephone functions.
These features all add up to heighten the driving thrill, and the excitement starts even before you settle inside. The SUV's flowing body is shaped like a sleek coupé, which adds to its athleticism and aerodynamic profile. The familiar kidney front grille sits between double-round headlamps, while a subtle fold flows down each wing to end at a strong rear. The model sits on large alloy wheels which help it to remain sure footed, and you can specify a design that best suits your tastes. This joins a broad line-up of paint finishes to further distinguish your own X4 from all others.
Under the sculpted bonnet, you can choose from three xDrive diesel engines that power all four wheels for optimum grip no matter the conditions. The xDrive35d is the most muscular of all, as it produces 309bhp and 630Nm of torque. This allows it to go from 0-60mph in around 5.2 seconds – an excellent feat for a car of its size. The xDrive20d is the cleanest in the model family, emitting just 131g/km when paired with automatic transmission.
