According to official data shared by BMW India, the second-gen BMW X4 is scheduled to be launched in India on February 7, 2019.

Once launched in India, the BMW X4 is expected to be positioned between the X3 and X5 which have price ranges of Rs 50 lakh to 57 lakh and Rs 77 lakh to 83 lakh, respectively (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). Accordingly, the BMW X4 is likely to be priced at about Rs 60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). As mentioned before, BMW will aggressively price this SUV by locally assembling it in India. It will have no direct rival but is anticipated to take on the likes of the Audi Q5, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Range Rover Evoque.

BMW X4 Exterior Design & Styling

Sharing the all-new CLAR platform from BMW with the current 7 Series, the new X4 will vary a lot from the earlier generation model in terms of dimensions. To be more specific, the new platform has helped the second-gen X4 coupe become 50 kg lighter than its predecessor. Surprisingly, despite the smaller weight, it is 81mm and 37mm greater in length and in width, respectively, with a longer wheelbase (by 54mm). For your information, the BMW X4 is also both longer and wider than the X3, from which it takes many design cues.

The general exterior styling is more elegant, with such new features such as

  • Wider grille

  • New fog lamps

  • Larger air intakes

  • More robust front bumper

  • Standard LED headlamps

  • Larger 19-20-inch alloy wheels

  • Outstanding coupe-like roofline

  • LED taillights

BMW X4 Specifications

Once launched in India, the BMW X4 will be available in two engine options: the X4 xDrive30i and the xDrive30d. While the former adopts a 2.0L four cylinders petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 252 hp and a peak torque of 350 Nm, the latter utilizes a 3.0L diesel motor with six cylinders that is good for 265 hp and 620 Nm. The petrol and diesel engine variants can sprint from 0 to 100 kph in 6.3 seconds and 5.8 seconds, respectively. The power is sent to the four wheels through an 8-speed AT gearbox.

All X4 variants are offered with an M Sport suspension as standard. The xDrive four-wheel-drive system will function in line with a Performance Control function, offering torque vectoring. Moreover, the BMW’s Driving Experience Control system is expected to provide the driver with different driving modes: Eco-Pro, Comfort and Sport. BMW will also equip both of the two motor options with launch control as standard.
