First videos of the new 2018 BMW X4

The M40i is the first of two performance variants from the M skunk works, boasting a three-litre straight-six turbopetrol rated for 265kW at 5500 revs and 500Nm from 1520-4800rpm. Wheel sizes range from 19-21 inches. A more powerful version of the same engine is fitted in the xDrive25d, with 228bhp and 0-62mph taking 6.8 seconds. The anniversary vehicle, a BMW X4 xDrive20d (combined fuel consumption: 5.6 - 5.4 l/100 km; combined Carbon dioxide emissions: 149 - 142 g/km) in the paint finish Alpine White metallic, will be delivered to a customer in Asia.

Engine options are pretty much what you'd expect from the X3, with all engine options coming with eight-speed automatic, with two diesel options - xDrive20d and xDrive 30d - and two petrol options - xDrive20i and xDrive30i. This means it'll accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.8 seconds and return an advertised 44.1mpg and 170g/km of CO2.

Three full-size seats are fitted in the rear compartment of the X4, providing passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model. Fold the rear seats down (in a variable 40:20:40 split) and that figure expands to over 50 cubic feet.

BMW Individual also offers further personalization options. As standard, the all-new X4 includes LED headlights and a raft of safety assists including front collision warning, city collision mitigation and braking, and pedestrian detection. Prices for the xDrive30i start at $50,450 plus a destination charge, while the M40i starts at $60,450. The 2019 BMW X4 reaches U.S. dealers in July, priced from $50,450 for the four-cylinder model, and $60,450 for the M40i.

In terms of tech that won't likely save your life, BMW's new crossover features a wide, 10.25-inch center display with the latest iteration of iDrive, as well as the ability to take voice and gesture commands.

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.

The four-wheel-drive system operates in conjunction with a standard Performance Control function (which provides torque-vectoring) and BMW's Driving Experience Control system (which allows the driver choose between Sport, Comfort and Eco-Pro drive modes).

Other new features include BMW's display key, which can show you the car's fuel level, remaining range and service information on a small 2.2in display, as well as an air purification system.

We're in the middle of an avalanche of BMW X-cars.

For the interior BMW has redesigned the centre console, incorporating a large storage area in the front, while up top is BMW's latest iDrive6 media interface with a wide-screen LCD with touch functionality.
