The 2019 BMW X4 is the sloping-roofed variant of the X3 premium compact crossover. After a redesigned X3 debuted for the 2018 model year, the X4 is following close behind with a similar set of upgrades. It’s built in Spartanburg, South Carolina, for every territory around the world.
BMW calls the X4 (and the larger X6, based on the mid-size X5) a "sport activity vehicle," or SAV. It may sound like marketing fluff, but it's not too far from the truth. Every BMW has an enthusiast leaning to some degree. This trait is evident in the regular X4 and amplified in the range-topping M40i version. It also comes with a specific style and undeniable cachet. Join us on this in-depth road test and review to see how good the new X4 is.
