The 2018 BMW X4 is one of those vehicles that combine a car’s body with an SUV chassis, and people love them for this. The BMW X4 was introduced for the 2015 model, three years ago. So customers are due for its new version. This gen next X4 is expected to unveil at the Frankfurt Auto Show, in September 2017. BMW auto makers work around the year to present its first prototypes with good performance in this highly competitive market.
The X3 and X4 are BMW’s two compact luxury crossovers. Though they share the same chassis, they offer completely different experiences. X4 is sportier and better to drive.
2018 BMW X4 – Design
As with all modern architecture, BMW makes this model with high-strength steel, aluminium and other lightweight materials, which will allow this model to lose at least 200 pounds. BMW will build the new X4 on an entirely new chassis with their CLAR architecture, which will solve the ongoing model’s harsh ride as well as the dull steering problems. The new X4 has a more curvaceous roofline leading into a liftback-style rear, and unique door pressings with bulkier detailing near the sills.
Its headlights have been tapered at each end with BMW’s LED ‘angel eyes’ daytime running light signatures. The twin-kidney grille also appears to have been extended farther down the front fascia. Its body will receive a far more intense seem and Its hood may have upraised outlines.
2018 BMW X4 – Powertrain Configuration
Entry-level models will come with 2.0-litre petrol or diesel engines offering closer to 260 hp and over 250 lb-ft of torque and will get to 60 mph in 6 seconds flat. More powerful 3.0-litre units will also be offered with anything between 320 and 370 hp is also a real possibility which will get to 60 mph in around 4.7 seconds. The European market is set to receive a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel with just over 200 hp.
All the BMW X4’s engines will be mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, while BMW’s Xdrive all-wheel-drive system will probably be optional. But the option for a clutch pedal should be available for those who still prefer to control their cogs manually.
Its energy economy is rather high with numbers of 20 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon in freeways.
The 2018 BMW X4 will get the same interior as the X3, which is not a problem since the X3 is usually the benchmark of its class. The model is likely to get a new cleaner-looking dashboard as well as their brand new infotainment system. The vehicle is liable to have an 8-way power traveler seating vehicle together with the multiple levels heating system.
The cabin will have a new room with gentle leather-based furniture.
Despite the sloping roofline, it should provide rear passengers with more head and knee room in comparison to the current model.
2018 BMW X4 – Pricing and Release Date
The X4 has two line ups: the xDrive28i, which starts out at $47,600 or the M40i, which starts out at $59,250. It is expected to release sometime in 2018.
BMW is clearly doubling its success with the X line up. The 2018 BMW X4 sure has plush and well-equipped interiors and a style grill with sharp body lines as well as a powerful engine.
