From £51,100.00 on the road
If you’re not prepared to compromise on style or off-road capability, you should take a look at the BMW X4. Whether travelling on city streets, motorways or across rough terrain, this compact SUV makes a seriously bold statement, not least because of its chunky 4×4 stature and swooping coupé roofline.

BMW X4 DESIGN
The X4 certainly has kerb appeal, thanks to its sleek profile, raised ride height and sporty demeanour. The vehicle features expansive wheel arches and a beefed-up shoulder line that more than hint at its off-road prowess. This combination of SUV and sports saloon is carried through to a luxurious cabin, which provides the driver with an elevated position – all the better to see the road ahead. There’s room in the rear compartment for three, and the vehicle possesses a 525-litre boot space. With rear seats folded, cargo capacity increases to a not-inconsiderable 1,430 litres.
The X4 comes with a wide range of engine options, from punchy turbo diesels to a 3.0-litre 503bhp six-cylinder petrol unit. The latter delivers 600Nm of torque and 0-60mph in less than four seconds. Optimal efficiency comes in the guise of a 2.0-litre 187bhp engine that returns up to 52.3mpg and produces CO2 emissions from 132g/km. Meanwhile, BMW’s intelligent xDrive system delivers power to all four wheels, ensuring that the best possible traction is achieved on a wide range of surfaces.
Technology and Safety
For your listening pleasure, a six-speaker sound system is included as standard, featuring DAB radio and an AM/FM tuner. Another standard inclusion is a satellite navigation system, with 3D mapping, voice activation, real-time traffic updates and an 8.8-inch screen. As well as AUX and USB inputs, the vehicle also features Bluetooth connectivity and offers full smartphone integration. The X4 boasts a maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash-test rating and a host of safety features. Included as standard, for instance, is Autonomous Emergency Braking, which significantly minimises the risk of collision with objects ahead by applying maximum braking pressure whenever necessary.
