BMW X4 is the newest addition of the crossover SUV with the
coupe-like profile to BMW’s lineup. Like the larger coupe-like
X6 which derives from the X5, the X4 is the derivative of the
X3 with which it shares powertrains and dimensions. This
uniquely styled SUV from the BMW family debuted in 2014 and
what is interesting, it seems that German giant already has the
second generation of this model in the perspective. The new
gen-version should debut around the mid of the next year which
means that buyers would get the new iteration of this model
like the 2019 BMW X4. It means that BMW would interrupt the
usual product cycle of 7 years.
What will change?
The next-gen X4 will be engineered on the new lightweight
platform and will get the range of more powerful and efficient
engines. The styling will evolve from the current form while
the expanded cabin will feature the high-tech and safety
features. The high-performance M version should also be
2019 BMW X4: Platform, Design
Like its derivative, the X3 which will arrive late this year,
the 2019 BMW X4 will be built on the rear-wheel-drive scalable

Styling wise, the X4 won’t feature a revolutionary change. The
model’s design will be an evolution of the current design theme
with styling cues borrowed from the next X2. It will feature
tweaked split kidney grille and headlights and will also get
the new LED taillights. The profile will emphasize the strong
character line which extends from the front fenders over the
door handles to the taillights and low roofline will also make
it more dramatic. The M version will feature more aggressive
appearance with the lower stance, flared fenders, sportier
bumpers and other M specific design cues.
Inside the cabin, the new X4 will get a more premium design.
The new seating system will provide higher flexibility and
comfort. The latest tech and safety features alongside with the
advanced telematics will also be the step forward from the
2019 BMW X4: Powertrains
In the engine department, the new 2019 BMW X4 will offer the
range of diesel and petrol units. The diesel range will include
two more efficient 2.0-liter engines alongside with the
3.0-liter inline-6 petrol and diesel units. The new engine
versions should be around 15 hp stronger than the current
units. The fuel economy should be about 10 percent better.
The US-spec versions should get the 2.0-liter turbo four
engine. It will come with the better output than the current
240 hp and 260 pound-feet of torque. The M performance model
will also get stronger turbocharged V-6. It isn’t also excluded
that diesel model would get stateside.

As mentioned earlier, the new-gen X4 is expected to debut in
mid-2018 which means as the 2019 BMW X4. It’s too early to
speak about prices but we should not expect radical changes in
the price range.
