BMW Australia today announced details and pricing of the new BMW X4 which is scheduled for local release later this year.

With signature BMW X features, a distinctive design and an excellent dynamic ability claim, the BMW X4 is set to offer a unique vehicle in the marketplace.

According to Phil Horton, managing director of BMW Group Australia, the new BMW X4 creates a whole new proposition for sporty minded customers who still require high levels of versatility.

The new BMW X4 is based on the technical blueprint of the BMW X3, but displays a sporting character – and a generous level of standard specifications.

Styling is a noticeable point of the new BMW X4. The distinctive front face of the new model guarantees it is immediately recognisable as a BMW: Light bands around the outer edges of the headlights are slightly flattened at the top and back and make for a broad appearance. The distinctive radiator grille surround in chrome and the large front air inlets underline the X4’s sporting potential. In profile, the coupé-like roofline extending into the rear is a distinctive feature which also clearly sets the BMW X4 apart.

The generously sized interior of the BMW X4 combines sportiness and exclusivity with high-level functionality. Every BMW X4 comes equipped with 40:20:40 split fold rear seats which allows for a flexible luggage compartment capacity of between 500 and 1,400 litres. A storage compartment package with a range of handy storage and luggage carrying features is also standard.

Every control element is angled towards the driver for optimal ergonomics. The xDrive status display identifies the BMW X4 as a member of the BMW X family. Occupants in the BMW X4 enjoy an elevated seating position, with the front and rear seats only 20 and 28 mm lower respectively than in the BMW X3. This conveys a more sporty seating experience than the X3. The rear seat bench has two individual seats but still provides enough room for up to three passengers.

The BMW X4 will launch with four powerful engines – two petrol and two diesel units – all with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.

All BMW X4 models are fitted with an eight-speed automatic transmission - sports automatic transmission in the case of the X4 xDrive30d and X4 xDrive35i - and also include gear shift paddles on the steering wheel.

Standard features that highlight the dynamic credentials of the BMW X4 include Performance Control and variable sports steering, both of which combine to enable a higher level of dynamic cornering and handling with maximum grip, excellent directional stability and a very high degree of steering precision as well as comfort when parking.

Claiming its position at the top of the range at $87,900* is the X4 xDrive35i.

Enhancing the sporty character of this top model is the standard M Sport package which – for this model – includes 20-inch M double spoke alloy wheels standard, sport suspension settings for the standard Dynamic damper control, M aerodynamics package, anthracite roof liner, M designated door entry sills and leather M steering wheel as well as high-gloss shadowline exterior trims and aluminium interior trim. Further boosting the value of the X4 xDrive35i over the xDrive30d are features like the top-end 16 speaker harman/kardon sound system, comfort access which enable keyless access to the vehicle including tailgate.

All new BMW X4 models’ maintenance requirements are controlled by BMW’s Condition Based Service (CBS) programme which identifies the condition of a vehicle based on actual use, realising the full potential of a vehicle and minimising costs.

Under the CBS system, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which the vehicle is used including mileage, time elapsed since the last service, fuel consumption and how the vehicle is driven. The information captured is used to determine the vehicle’s maintenance requirements, identifying that either an annual vehicle inspection or an oil service is due.

In addition, BMW service and selected maintenance costs can now be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI). BSI offers two packages; BMW Service Inclusive Basic provides scheduled servicing cover, while BMW Service Inclusive Plus combines scheduled servicing and selected maintenance items. Based on individual lifestyle needs, a year range and kilometre option is selected, starting from 3 years/60,000kms. The BSI plan provides a long-term solution enabling cover to be extended and transferred to future vehicles owners before expiry.
