All-New 2019 BMW X4 Coupe-Style SUV Arrives this Year

2019 BMW X4 gets official rocking improved aero and improved suspension

All the usual suspects range from four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines up to a 360hp performance-oriented six-potter for the so-called M40i.

Set to debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month, the new 2019 BMW X4 is both larger and altogether more advanced than the model it replaces.

But the core-selling model for the X4 is expected to be the 20d armed with 190hp 2.0-litre diesel-turbo, eight-speed automatic and xDrive four-wheel drive. Acceleration to 100km/h is quoted at 4.9 seconds, top speed is limited to 250km/h and fuel; consumption is NEDC-rated at 6.6 litres per 100km. It accelerates to 62MPH in eight seconds and returns an average consumption of 52.3mpg and Carbon dioxide emissions of 142g/km. Three full-size seats provide passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model, while boot has capacity has been increased to 525 litres.

The options list also includes a wireless implementation of Apple CarPlay. This can be expanded to a maximum of 1430 litres by folding down the sections of the rear backrest, with its standard 40/20/40 split.

The 2019 X4 gains new standard safety equipment with Active Protection offering protective measures when an accident is imminent. CO2 figures for the xDrive30d range from 156 to 163g/km depending on spec, with the less efficient M40d pumping out 170 to 173g/km. Makes sense, then, that following the X3's updo for 2018, the X4 is receiving a similar freshening for the 2019 model year.

Premier League TV rights of over £4 billion keep Sky in control
Sky will continue to be the chief telecaster of Premier League football after their broadcasting rights were extended to 2022. And for the first time, Sky will televise Premier League games on Saturday nights, with a 7.45pm kick off time.

This is the second generation of the X4 - a rival for the Mercedes GLC Coupe and Jaguar F-Pace - and, like its predecessor, it's based on the X3, but trades some of that car's practicality for coupe-like styling and a sharper drive. That means prices starting just below the £40,000 mark and climbing to £50,000 and above for sportier M models. The X4 also gets BMW's nifty - though, as far as I'm concerned, unnecessary - gesture controls that allow you to adjust audio volume and accept or reject phone calls with a swipe of your hand. The Driving Assistant Plus Package highlights include active lane keep assist with side collision avoidance, traffic jam assist and evasion aid and front and rear cross traffic alert.

Apple and Android phones are fully supported, as are their respective smart watches, along with Amazon Alexa and Google Home personal assistants; BMW suggests that a route could be planned via any of these methods before being transferred to your vehicle, based on calendar entries and other information.

The X4's revamped interior houses the most recent version of BMW's iDrive infotainment system, says Autocar.

It's not much of a shock in here - standard BMW fare.
