Hello, and welcome to the second generation of the BMW X4. The G02 (the X4’s new internal code) is now approximately 3 inches longer than the outgoing model, with the wheelbase receiving more than 2 extra inches. The X4 is now 1.4 inches wider, too. This all combines to give the X4 what BMW calls “dynamically stretched proportions” which we’ll take to mean it looks sportier. 

And to that end, the X4 does boast a balanced 50:50 weight distribution, so at least on paper, it’s sporty. On paper. BMW does refer to the X4 as a “Sports Activity Coupe”, after all. We can understand if BMW doesn't like to shorten that one.

The X4 comes in two flavors: The xDrive30i, and the M40i. The xDrive30i is propelled by a four-cylinder engine providing 248 horsepower. The M40i gets an inline-six cylinder with 355 horsepower. Both models use the same eight-speed transmission and are only offered with all-wheel drive. The base price on the xDrive30i starts at $50,450, while the M40i starts at $60,450.
