The all-new 2019 BMW X4 underscores its individual character with significantly enhanced driving dynamics, standout exterior design accentuating the car’s sporting instincts, a further refined premium ambience in the interior, state-ofthe-art driver assistance systems and leading-edge connectivity technologies. Added to which, the dynamic and extravagant aura of the Sports Activity Coupe is further highlighted by the addition of two BMW M Performance models to the line-up.
The iDrive display and operating system in the all-new BMW X4 includes a freestanding Control Display that is optionally available in a 10.25-inch version with touchscreen functionality. The voice control system has undergone further improvement and can now follow freely formulated instructions. BMW gesture control, the multifunctional instrument display and the latest generation of the BMW Head-Up Display are also available as options.
The range of comfort- and safety-enhancing driver assistance systems has been extended once again. The Driving Assistant Plus safety package includes the new-generation Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, the Steering and lane control assistant, the Lane Keeping Assistant with active side collision protection, and the Crossing traffic warning and Crossroads warning systems. The new Parking Assistant Plus feature also comprises the Top View, Panorama View and 3D View functions. The Remote 3D View function gives drivers the ability to call up a three-dimensional live image of their vehicle and its immediate vicinity on their smartphone. Also available as options are the WiFi hotspot preparation enabling rapid online connectivity for digital devices and telephony with wireless charging for compatible smartphones.
New digital services from BMW ConnectedDrive offer comprehensive assistance with personal mobility planning. The standard ConnectedDrive Services provide the basis for accessing features such as Real Time Traffic Information, On-Street Parking Information and the Concierge Services. The mobility assistant BMW Connected interfaces the vehicle with touchpoints – such as smartphones, smartwatches and voice-controlled personal assistants – via the flexible Open Mobility Cloud platform. The additional features of BMW Connected+ offer an even greater degree of personalisation. BMW is also the first carmaker to offer a secure server connection for exchanging and editing emails, calendar entries and contact details – thanks to the Microsoft Office 365 function, which users can select from the ConnectedDrive Store.
The exterior design of the all-new BMW X4 is a case study in muscular dynamics and commanding presence. Clean surfacing and high-class, modern accents headline this updated interpretation of the unmistakable X4 aesthetic. The X4 assumes the role of eye-catching athlete in the BMW X model family.
An increase of 81 millimetres in exterior length to 4,752 millimetres, 54 millimetres added to the wheelbase (now 2,864 millimetres) and an extra 37 millimetres of width (1,918 millimetres) lend the all-new BMW X4 dynamically stretched proportions. In the centre of the striking front end stands a large BMW kidney grille in three-dimensional look. Twin LED headlights with dynamic contours as well as horizontal fog lamps form a new interpretation of the familiar six-eyed face espoused by BMW X models.
The precise shoulderline – which takes in the door openers en route to the rear lights – and the character line between the wheel arches break up the surfaces of the car’s flanks. This creates clearly defined haunches, which are additionally emphasised by the drawn-in glasshouse at the rear. The coupestyle roofline slides into the rear window with an elegant flourish before dipping down more steeply to the rear. Horizontal lines, the LED rear lights that project out from the car’s body with their three-dimensional shaping, and the twin exhaust tailpipes (shared by all engine variants) magnify the width of the rear end.
