After four years, BMW is Restyling the X4. It gets bigger, can pack more and should drive more dynamic. In addition, an M-model with diesel joins the line-up. Here is 2019 BMW X4 Review
2019 BMW X4 Redesign and Update
He only spent four years. In the year 2014 BMW brought the second so-called SUV coupe after the big X6 to the market with the X4 (F26). Now the detachment follows. This makes sense: The X4 is still based on the X3, and it has been rolling on the streets since last year in the youngest generation. Postponing the X4 later could lead to potential customers competing. They finally exist now.
So comes the new generation of X4, internal abbreviation: G02. The SUV with the sloping stern gets bigger and a bit more spacious. The weight will be reduced by about 50 kilos depending on the engine. The focus also moves downward for more driving dynamics. On a length of 4.75 meters, the new X4 now brings 525 to 1,430 litres of luggage. The predecessor could invite 500 to 1,400 liters and was only 4.67 meters long. In width, the new 2019 BMW X4 G02 attaches nearly four centimeters to 1.92 meters.
A good part of the extra length ends up between the axes. The wheelbase grows by five centimeters, BMW promises passengers on the bench almost three inches more space for the knees. The backrest can be relocated in a ratio of 40:20:40 and optionally put into a more upright position.
2019 BMW X4 Engine Trims; Petrol Engine, Diesel and Hybrid
To launch the market, BMW offers three gasoline and four diesel engines. The first step is the 2019 BMW X4 xDrive 20i with 184 PS. In the 30i, the four-cylinder petrol engine makes 252 Horsepower. The strongest petrol engine will be the 2019 BMW X4 M40i, which is to be in production from August onwards. Here works a 3.0-liter six cylinder with 360 hp. We already know from the X3 M40i.
The diesel range includes the four-cylinder 20d and 25d-as well as the 30d with series six, which is also produced from August. For the first time, BMW also offers an M-performance version with Diesel in X4. The 2019 BMW X4 M40d brings 326 hp and 680 NM of torque from its 3.0-liter six-cylinder. At the same time, BMW is also bringing motorization to X3.
The petrol engines are equipped with Ottopartikelfilter, the diesel exhaust gases are cleaned by NOx Storage and SCR-catalyst with AdBlue. All engines meet the standard Euro 6d-temp, the consumption values were determined according to the new WLTP cycle and calculated on NEDC. BMW initially combines all four-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic motors. Other engines are not planned – only the X4 m (F98) is still on. He should be waiting for about a year.
In terms of equipment options, BMW is focused on the freshly presented X2. As with the small brother, the variants XLine and M sport come with the equipment M Sports x. Wheel, side sills and parts on the front and stern are grey here. At M Sport, sills and wheel are painted in car color. Front and rear aprons are slightly different from the equipment.

However, the X4 cannot be parked by key remote control alone.
