2019 BMW X4 Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

BMW's lineup of "sports activity coupes" (read: fancy way to say SUV) gets another update with a complete redesign of the X4 for 2019. This is the second generation of the X4, which originally debuted for the 2015 model year. It keeps much of the same shape and aesthetic, with a rearward-swept fastback shape that makes it look like a cross between an SUV and a wagon/hatchback. The X4 is closely related to the X3, which got a redesign for 2018.

Two versions of the X4 will be offered: the xDrive30i and the sportier M40i. Most of the exciting changes to the X4 happen on the inside, where it takes a big leap forward in technology.

 

Exterior
There are some nip-and-tuck trim changes along the exterior that add a little visual flair along the sides. The X4 has also grown slightly: It's now 3 inches longer and 1.4 inches wider. Full LED headlights (including daytime running lights) and taillights are standard on both models.

M40i models get some unique, sporty touches, as well, with high-gloss black accents, different front and rear diffusers, and side skirts.

Interior
The cabin has been thoroughly modernized with a new look and added technology. A 10.25-inch touchscreen that sits atop the dash is standard. The new X4 also features standard navigation and the newest iDrive system, which includes improved voice recognition. The navigation comes with a few extra goodies, including an on-street parking information system that will show co...

Exterior
There are some nip-and-tuck trim changes along the exterior that add a little visual flair along the sides. The X4 has also grown slightly: It's now 3 inches longer and 1.4 inches wider. Full LED headlights (including daytime running lights) and taillights are standard on both models.

M40i models get some unique, sporty touches, as well, with high-gloss black accents, different front and rear diffusers, and side skirts.

Interior
The cabin has been thoroughly modernized with a new look and added technology. A 10.25-inch touchscreen that sits atop the dash is standard. The new X4 also features standard navigation and the newest iDrive system, which includes improved voice recognition. The navigation comes with a few extra goodies, including an on-street parking information system that will show colors indicating the probability of finding parking in select areas. Gesture control is also newly available. An available head-up display is now 75 percent larger.

The options list also includes a wireless implementation of Apple CarPlay. That means you won't have to plug in your phone to use the smartphone-mirroring system, which we're big fans of.

BMW says the added length and width of the X4 means there's more occupant room than before, and the climate control system now has three zones instead of two. There's 18.5 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats, which expands to 50.5 cubic feet with the 40/20/40-split folding rear seat down.

Under the Hood
The two trims are also broken up by their powertrains. The xDrive30i features an engine that's new to the X4 but used widely in other BMW models, a 248-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 258 pounds-feet of torque. The M40i has a carryover engine, a 355-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder that makes 365 pounds-feet of torque. An eight-speed transmission and all-wheel drive are standard for both trims, though in the M40i it has a rear-wheel-drive bias for a sportier feel. An M Sport suspension is standard for both models.

Safety
Standard safety equipment has also expanded to now include forward autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection and speed limit information. The X4 will also offer adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, blind spot warnings, and cross-traffic alerts front and rear.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
