Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Since the X4 is a BMW, ride and handling qualities are sure to satisfy the enthusiastic driver. All the more so if that driver is behind the wheel of the M40i, which is particularly adept at breezing briskly through highway curves and corners.

Performance, too, strikes a compelling chord, no matter which engine is beneath the hood. Neither engine feels underpowered; but again, the M40i edition makes its potent turbo six-cylinder engine spring forcefully into action.

For vehicles in this category, driving fun isn’t always a strong point. Not only does the M40i’s inline six excel in power delivery, it comes on strong when responses are called for, and it backs down calmly when more sedate cruising is the goal.

BMW’s smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission is so carefully tuned, it almost seems to know in advance exactly when it will be called upon to downshift. Even manual-shift fans are likely to nod in agreement over this automatic’s prowess.

Like any conventional-style performance SUV or crossover, the fashionable M40i doesn’t conceal its tall ride height. Essentially, it could be said that the driver sits atop the vehicle, rather than within it.

Standard all-wheel drive ordinarily splits power in a 40/60 ratio, front/rear, but can send every bit of it to the back wheels, if needed. A performance controller can split torque side-to-side, too. Unlike some AWD systems, BMW’s is intended for off-road use.

Optional adaptive dampers produce firmer suspension responses, enhancing comfort and flexibility.

As for fuel economy, the base X4 xDrive28i is EPA-rated at 20/28 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. The X4 M40i manages only 18/25 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Whether the X4 is primarily a styling statement or a laudably sensible crossover model is debatable. What’s not open to dispute is the vehicle’s fashionable body contours, especially along the roofline.

Like the larger X6, the X4 gives up some functionality. Based upon the conventionally profiled X3 crossover, the X4 carves away quite a lot of cargo space and some head clearance, in exchange for its dramatic fastback roof.

Athletic in both appearance and approach to sporty driving, the X4 features bulky fenders that can wrap around available 20‑inch wheels.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Although BMW’s upright X3 crossover, from which the X4 was spun off, seats five passengers readily, the X4 barely manages four. That’s because the sloping roofline slashes at least 2 inches of rear-seat headroom, compared to the X3.

Deeply sculpted back-seat indentations for two persons affirm that the X4 isn’t meant for families. Legroom also is in short supply, but head space is the main concern.

Front seats, in stark contrast, rank above average. To obtain more sporty seats with good support, comfortable for a broad range of body types, the M-Sport package can be added. Front seats also are sportier in the M40i edition.

Cargo capacity also is significantly compromised by the coupe‑like roof. Volume totals 17.7 cubic feet with second-row seats upright, but the cargo hold is oddly-shaped. With those back seats folded, capacity expands to 49.4 cubic feet.


New Car Test Drive

Both X4 models are well-equipped, but priced relatively high for what amounts to a compact crossover, despite its coupelike roofline. Even the base version features wood accents in an upmarket interior. Considering its performance, features, options, and fine infotainment systems, it may rank as good value. Still, that sleek roofline, cutting into back-seat headroom, effectively turns the X4 into a veritable two-seater, at least for long treks.
