Bound 2018 BMW X4 revealed

2018 BMW X4 revealed before Geneva show

The Bavarian automaker will also offer an array of packages - including xLine, M Sport X, and M Sport - to help customers cater their vehicle to their taste. Makes sense, then, that following the X3's updo for 2018, the X4 is receiving a similar freshening for the 2019 model year.

It gets the same headlights, large kidney grilles and heavily sculpted hood as the X3. The new X4 is 3 inches longer than before, with 2.1 inches added in the wheelbase.

The X4 will have sportier riding dynamics because of wider tracks, a lower center of gravity and updated suspension, BMW said. Short overhangs and subtle hexagonal wheel arches contribute to the vehicle's athletic look that emphasizes its 50:50 front-to-rear weight distribution.

Drivers can choose between xLine, M Sport X and M Sport variants, but no matter which version you go for you'll get 18in alloy wheels as standard (although sizes of up to 21in are available).

Three full-size seats are fitted in the rear compartment of the X4, providing passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model.

This is apparently what a "coupe" looks like in 2018. Add the optional "Driving Assistant Plus" safety pack and the X4 will benefit from active steering systems that can keep the auto in lane at up to 130mph, along with various cross-traffic and cross-wind warning systems.

Defender Ivan Marcano remains unavailable, while the absences of Andre Andre and Danilo Pereira weaken Porto midfield depth. The Reds have a good record against Porto , with two wins and two draws from the four games played between the two sides.

The X4 also has the latest in connectivity, thanks to BMW's ConnectedDrive services. An available head-up display is now 75 percent larger - the largest available in this class, according to BMW.

Two powertrains will be offered in the US. The 2019 BMW X4 M40i features a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine producing 355 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. BMW says 0-100km/h takes just 4.9 seconds.

The interior of the X4 shared with the X3 including a redesigned fascia with a freestanding infotainment screen. But the M40d (the version pictured) is a tempting proposition, with 326 hp and a massive 501 lb-ft of torque to match the M40i model's top speed and come in just a tenth behind its 0-62 time (at 4.9 seconds) - but return much better fuel economy on oil: as much as 47.9 mpg on the Euro cycle instead of 31.4.

Engine options are pretty much what you'd expect from the X3, with all engine options coming with eight-speed automatic, with two diesel options - xDrive20d and xDrive 30d - and two petrol options - xDrive20i and xDrive30i.

The second-generation BMW X4 has been revealed, ahead of a USA market launch in March 2018. If you want the M40i, that'll be an extra $10,000.

Slotting between the X3 and X5 SUVs in the BMW line-up, the X4 will rival the Range Rover Evoque when it comes to India.
