The early success of the X4 crossover contributes to the new generation after just four years. Launched in 2018, it is still fresh, so there won’t be a demand for cosmetic alterations. We can see performance-oriented M versions prototypes on streets. Soon, these will be part of the 2020 BMW X4 lineup. Besides this, we heard the hybrid drivetrain is on the road for the following season.
2020 BMW X4 Redesign and Exterior
The 2020 BMW X4 keeps dimensions very similar to its X3 sibling. It is kind of a coupe version. The X5 and X6 are using a similar relation. So, the X4 is a much more aggressive crossover that pays the price with less distance in the trunk. The rear row also comes with a lack of headroom. On the other hand, the starting price is higher compared to X3. The X4 is filled with the latest infotainment systems. Fans of premium crossovers will give it a chance in 2020.
But, designers are adding coupe and hatchback elements to make it even more distinctive. And they left it pretty profitable. The X4 will offer a unique styling in the premium category and the company calls it sport action coupe. Its cargo space is not too ample, but the driving belief is at the highest level. Comfort and security can be hardly matched and it is one of the main advantages of the upcoming X4. What is more, the new infotainment system will bring even more features, chiefs say. But, they were not precise what type of changes we could anticipate.
2020 BMW X4 M Engine and Specs
There will be two accessible drivetrains for the 2020 BMW X4. The xDrive30i is the base setup and utilizes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder drivetrain. As you are probably aware, xDrive shows the four-wheel-drive setup. A six-speed automatic transmission is smooth and improves the fuel economy of the X4 crossover. For the next season, engineers target 30 mpg highway mileage. The sport activity coupe can deliver 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. That is nearly 10 ponies less than X3. Still, X4 creates 2 pound-feet more than its sibling.
The other drivetrain with this model is a 3.0-liter V6. It uses the same transmission and drives system. It is known as M40i and engine is ready to burst 355 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque. We have to compare it to X3 again. The performance-oriented package is not damaging the gas economy so significantly. A price of 1-2 mpg worse mileage is reasonable for a profit of 115 ponies.
The 2020 BMW X4 M will also get cosmetic upgrades. Spy photos captured this and X3 M together. Heavy camouflage is concealing these changes, but it is fantastic to know that the M Package is beneath a revisit. Shortly, we will learn more about exterior modifications. Of course, unique bumper wheels, and hood will make the X4M more aggressive. Interior is packed with additional features. Buyers can pick 20-inch wheels instead of 19-inches available for the standard version. Leather seats and upholstery are there, and you may select some of the premium paint combinations for approximately $3,000.
2020 BMW X4 Hybrid
The 2020 BMW X4 will share many things in common with its nearest sibling X3. The German carmaker confirmed the coming of a hybrid engine for its flagship models in crossover and SUV classes. Aside from the X3, the X5 is also becoming this drivetrain. We are sure the X4 and X6 will share hybrid units with their non-coupe siblings. After the tuning and pairing with electric bolts, the system will have the ability to create 280 hp. Plug-in version is going to offer a range of 40 miles driving it only on electric power. At length, an all-electric BMW iX3 is also an alternative. Well, its iX4 stablemate will follow the release in a season or two.
2020 BMW X4 Release Date and Price
Without too many changes, the 2020 BMW X4 will arrive late this year. However, we expect to observe upgrades on M models. Heavy camouflage is promising it will be worth waiting. The starting price of the entry-level model will stay the same. It begins at $50,000 with no color and interior upgrades. Convenience package costs $1,000; Premium trimming’s price is over $53,000, and many features you will receive with Executive model.
Here, we can pick updates, such as playground assist features (cost $700), drive assist suite ($500-1,700). Some equipment from the Premium package is currently on X4M. Therefore this upgrade costs” only” $1,600, while for the Executive set buyers must add $3,000.
