If consider that the BMW X4 is not sportier enough for you, the Bavarian manufacturer announced new M Performance Parts for its latest vehicle. As a result, you can customize your X4 with a black version of the kidney grille, exterior mirror caps and a rear spoiler in carbon fiber. In addition, BMW offers M Performance accent strips in Black/Silver as well as a new set of light-alloy 21-inch wheels wrapped in high-performance tires.
The wheels feature a double-spoke design and have a bi-colour finish in Orbit Grey with polished spoke fonts. The interior can also be enhanced and BMW offers LED door sill plates in brush stainless-steel look with the illuminated BMW M Performance lettering, but also new trim strips in carbon.
The Steptronic or Steptronic Sport Transmissions features a carbon gear knob with the BMW M logo. Moreover, there is a new BMW M Performance steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara and featuring an attractive carbon trim, as well as a new set of stainless-steel pedal covers and the driver’s footrest.
And this is not all as BMW also offers new floor mats with M performance lettering and a new M Performance key case that continues the theme.
Thanks to the new BMW M Performance Power Kit, the X4 xDrive30d models can gain more power and according to BMW there kit raises the output by 27 hp (20 kW) to 286 hp (210 kW) and a maximum torque of 600 Nm (442 lb-ft).
This means an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds faster than the standard model.
Exclusively for the BMW X4 xDrive35i, the manufacturer offers an M Performance valve silencer that can be adjusted via Bluetooth. Twin-pipe BMW M Performance embellishers in chrome are also available for the BMW X4 xDrive20d.
BMW X4 is the first Sports Activity Coupe to enter the premium mid-size market segment. Like its stablemate, the unique, quarter million-selling BMW X6, the new X4 exudes a captivatingly distinctive road presence. It looks so much the part of a dynamically powerful Sports Activity Vehicle, yet also completely like a classically elegant sports coupe.
Uniquely purified expression of driving pleasure
Though the new BMW X4 derives its technical framework from the BMW X3, it immediately projects its own dynamically jovial character. Its length of 4,671 mm barely exceeds the X3 by 14 mm, while its height of 1,624 mm is actually even lower by 36 mm. The overall silhouette is seamlessly balanced with its proportions and exudes exclusivity.
At the front end, large air intakes on the outer edges and a front apron with clear character lines compose a robustly sportive image with a lowered visual centre. The vehicle leaves a road-hugging and sharply dynamic impression, which is underscored by the fog lamps set under the trademark BMW twin headlamps, an arrangement that composes the vividly defining "three-eyed" BMW X face.
The X4’s coupe-like roofline peaks above the front seat area, expressing BMW’s driver-oriented design heritage. The roofline slopes gradually down as it reaches the rear edge tailgate. This extended linear orientation keenly brings out the X4’s sportive appeal. Its overall distinctive design is made more so by having a modernised version of the BMW flank swage line – the X4 is the first model wherein this line is split in two.
The first segment starts at the front wheel arches and gracefully slopes upward to the rear door handles, accentuating the X4’s exceptional dynamism. The second line segment brings attention to the muscular rear wings. The sculpted C-pillars, the robust shoulders and the low-set broad rear are thematic continuations of the overall sportive character. These keep anyone intending to drive or ride the new BMW X4 to be constantly aware of its nonpareil performance.
Exclusively sporty interior
A uniquely luxurious cordial fusion of sportiness and elegance is revealed upon entering the new BMW X4. With a more road-hugging body that is 36 mm lower compared to the BMW X3, the driver and front passenger seats are 20 mm lower while the rear passenger seats are 28 mm lower. All occupants get to experience the classic sports coupe feel. This sensation is afforded even with three rear passengers, thanks to the car’s rear seat bench design. Its continuously moulded side supports provide the equivalent support of individual seats, but it accommodates three passengers.
