Dr. Hans-Christian Baertels, President (act.), BMW Group India said, “BMW established the sports activity vehicle (SAV) category and the latest addition to this hugely successful family is the all-new BMW X4 belonging to the sports activity coupé segment. Its distinctive vehicle concept, which fuses the hallmark features of a BMW X model with the sporting elegance of a coupé, will be proven an instant hit in this class and will become a trend-setter. The all-new BMW X4 underscores its individual character with superior driving dynamics, standout exterior design accentuating the car’s sporting instincts, a refined premium ambience in the interior and leading-edge technologies.”
The BMW X4 is available in an M Sport Xdesign that combines the best of both worlds – an elite sports coupé radiating an off-road focused sportiness. The car is available in two diesel variants – the BMW X4 xDrive20d M Sport X and the BMW X4 xDrive30d M Sport X, and in one petrol variant – the BMW X4 xDrive30i M Sport X.
The BMW X4 comes with technologies such as the BMW display key that allows drivers to keep in contact with their car round the clock, gesture control, which is part of a rigorously thought-out operating concept that recognizes six pre-defined hand movements for control of a number of functions and the smartphone holder integrated into the centre console allows inductive wireless charging for mobile phones and display key. Parking and manoeuvring is made easier with the help of parking assistance along with the rear view camera and park distance control (PDC).
In terms of design, the front is characterised by a solid stance, the kidney grille and large air inlets. The clear and distinct dynamic lines combine to form a coupé-typical silhouette. Fully adaptive LED headlights with anti-dazzle high-beam headlights and LED fog lamps ensure excellent illumination of the road ahead. Emphasising the sporting character are twin exhaust pipes, a large automatic tailgate and the expressive low-slung roof spoiler.
The interior boasts an exceptional level of comfort and functionality in an extremely sporty ambience. Together with an elevated seat position and generously proportioned interior, it ensures first-class comfort. Sport seats for driver and front passenger have numerous adjustment options. The 40:20:40 split capacity makes rear backrest even more versatile. The backrest elements can also be folded down by pulling a lever in the luggage compartment. The instrument panel in Sensatec lends the interior a highly exclusive atmosphere. A relaxed and harmonious lounge atmosphere is created thanks to a large electrically operated panorama glass roof.

The car accelerates from 0-100 km/hr in just 6.0 seconds. The two-litre four cylinder diesel engine of the BMW X4 xDrive20d produces an output of 140 kW / 190 hp and produces a maximum torque of 400 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm. The car accelerates from 0 -100 km / hr in just 8.0 seconds.

The 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission performs smooth gear shifts. At any time, in any gear, the transmission collaborates perfectly with the engine, enabling it to develop its full power and efficiency. For even greater driving pleasure, the 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission is available with steering wheel paddle shifters. Adaptive suspension makes it possible to adjust the damper characteristics to suit any given driving situation, increasing comfort and driving dynamics. Performance control intervenes by providing controlled braking when turning, so that more power is distributed to the outer wheels and less to the inner wheels. Variable sport steering including Servotronic continuously adjusts the steering effort required depending on the current speed.
