Four years after its release, BMW X4 is entering the second generation. And now, the upcoming 2019 BMW X4 comes with even smaller size, more sportiness and plenty of updates. The X4 is a luxury crossover SUV with coupe styling, hatchback utility and an SUV ride height.

On top of that, X4 is smaller inside than BMW X3 and it looks much better. This SUV is fun to drive and if you need more power, we recommend an X4 M40i model. For the upcoming model, BMW rearranged optional packages, but some amenities like a rearview camera is standard now.
