2021 BMW X4 M Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2021 BMW X4?

The BMW X4 is a five-seat compact luxury SUV with coupelike styling and four conventional doors. Power comes from a standard 248-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; a 382-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six goes in the M40i version, while the X4 M gets a 473-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder. Every engine works with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is standard. Competitors include the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.

What’s New on the 2021 BMW X4?

Android Auto smartphone connectivity joins Apple CarPlay, and satellite radio is also now standard. Newly standard active safety features include blind spot warning and lane departure warning. 

What Features in the 2021 BMW X4 Are Most Important?

Standard features include: 

  • Panoramic moonroof
  • Power liftgate
  • Forward collision warning with city collision mitigation 
  • Navigation with 10.25-inch touchscreen
  • Digital instrument panel 

Available features include:

  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Wireless device charging
  • Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after trial)
  • Harman Kardon surround-sound system 
  • Head-up display
  • 360-degree camera system
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Adaptive suspension
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability

Should I Buy the 2021 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; the raked roofline takes a chunk out of the cargo area.

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.
