2020 BMW X4 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 BMW X4?

The BMW X4 is a five-seat compact luxury SUV with coupelike styling but four conventional doors. Power comes from a standard 248-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or a 355-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is standard. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and Land Rover Range Rover Evoque

What’s New on the 2020 BMW X4?

New standard features include Comfort Access and a digital instrument panel.

What Features in the 2020 BMW X4 Are Most Important?

Standard features include Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, a panoramic moonroof, a power liftgate, a 40/20/40-split, folding backseat and forward collision warning with city collision mitigation. Options include a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, ventilated front seats, wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a Harman Kardon surround-sound system and an adaptive suspension. 

Should I Buy the 2020 BMW X4?

If you’re looking for a sporty alternative to a traditional compact luxury SUV, the X4 is worth a look thanks to its strong available engines and athletic handling. You pay a lot more for the privilege, however, and get less utility in return.

BMW X4 - Best and safest vehicle I've ever owned

I can't say enough about my 2020 BMW X4. I found excuses to drive, just to take it out and throw it around corners (to quote my son, who also oddly found just as many excuses to drive). Competent in snow, secure on dirt/gravel roads, I felt secure in driving in whatever rural Montana tossed my way. The cabin is spacious and well laid out. Controls are easy to access and displays are very clear/easy to read. Sufficient power to conquer mountain passes, and my average fuel economy (driving like an idiot at times) hovered around 29-30 mpg. Cargo space... to quote one reviewer, "I'm not the ****** UPS man" - if you need cargo space, go with the X3 or X5 (and look like just about every other driver in Bozeman MT). We moved our son to school (all of his stuff, and 3 adults) in the X4 w/o any issues. It's roomier than reviews make it out to be. No issues with reliability, and it is the safest vehicle I've ever owned. I was t-boned by a driver (who was on her phone) doing at least 25 mph & while her car was destroyed, mine was injured but driveable, and I was uninjured despite her slamming directly into the driver's side. I would gladly recommend an X4; it's the best of all worlds providing comfort/sporty driving, 8" clearance, and a bit of space in the back end. And it's not "silly looking". You won't regret it.

The best BMW option for me so far

The car is great to me, it has the perfect size, comfortable seats, nice interior and exterior colors. I just love my new X4, performance is great so far. I have one an X1, a S4 and now this one, and so far the best option from the 3.

Our 2nd X4

This X4 is nicer than our 1st X4. It's a very comfortable solid riding vehicle with the interior styling being luxurious as well as everything easy to reach. The tech takes a bit to learn because there are a lot of choices to make there...maybe too many. The performance is really nice for a 4 cylinder turbo engine, just remember it isn't a six cylinder or the M Series. Styling is a matter of taste. My wife loves it; I'm ok with it. Overall, I really like this car.
