2020 BMW X4 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

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.
