BMW adds one more SUV to its range of vehicles with the unveiling of the X4 crossover at the Geneva Motor Show. The X4 will be positioned above the X3 and will go on sale this year. The vehicle shown as the X4 concept, last year, is based on the X3 SUV.
The X4 features aggressive frontal design with a big kidney grille surrounded by the headlights and is flanked by twin headlights and unique fog lights. The car features a sloping roofline which looks similar to its larger sibling, the X6. The rear-end gets L-shaped LED tail lights and a fake rear diffuser. Although it is based on the X3, the vehicle is longer and wider but shorter in comparison.
The interiors borrow cues from the X3, but come nicely outfitted with aluminum trim, electroplated accents and gloss black control panel surrounds. It also features a 40:20:40 split rear seat which folds down for added versatility.
BMW has offered a choice of six turbocharged engines in the X4, three diesel and three petrol mills. The petrol range begins with a Twinpower four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine producing 181bhp and 270Nm of torque, the second is an uprated version of the same engine producing 241bhp and 340Nm of torque. The third is an enthusiasts special Twinpower six-cylinder 3.0-litre engine that churns out 301bhp and 400Nm of torque.
The diesel range includes a four-cylinder 2.0-litre Twinpower engine producing 187bhp and 400Nm of torque, a six-cylinder 3.0-litre engine producing 254bhp and 560Nm of torque, and the third is an uprated version of the same engine producing 308bhp and 630Nm of torque.
