BMW India has launched the all-new BMW X4 in India. The all-new BMW X4 features a distinctive design, an unmistakable coupé character and outstanding driving dynamics.

Locally produced at BMW Group Plant Chennai, the all-new BMW X4 will be available in diesel and petrol variants at all BMW dealerships across India from today onwards.

Dr. Hans-Christian Baertels, President (act.), BMW Group India said, “BMW established the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) category and the latest addition to this hugely successful family is the all-new BMW X4 belonging to the Sports Activity Coupé segment. Its distinctive vehicle concept, which fuses the hallmark features of a BMW X model with the sporting elegance of a coupé, will be proven an instant hit in this class and will become a trend-setter. The all-new BMW X4 underscores its individual character with superior driving dynamics, standout exterior design accentuating the car’s sporting instincts, a refined premium ambience in the interior and leading-edge technologies.

The all-new BMW X4 is available in an exclusive M Sport X design that combines the best of both worlds – an elite sports coupé radiating an off-road-focused sportiness. The striking Sports Activity Coupé confidently rules the road and is destined to stand out everywhere it goes.

Sporty and self-assured is the impression created by M Sport X. The M Aerodynamics Package underscores the vehicle's athleticism and modifies its airflow. The air intakes, side skirts, wheel arch trim and rear apron with diffuser insert are in Frozen Grey. The classically designed 19” light-alloy wheels along with M designation on the sides further emphasize its dynamic character. The sporty appearance is apparent in the whole car, from the multifunction M leather steering wheel to illuminated M door sill finishers to the blue M Sport brake callipers bearing the M logo.

The innovative petrol and diesel powered engines from the BMW EfficientDynamics family offer considerably more spirited power delivery as well as spontaneous responsiveness even at low engine speeds. Thanks to their unrivalled BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, they meld maximum power with exemplary efficiency.

The three-litre six-cylinder diesel engine of the BMW X4 xDrive30d produces an output of 195 kW / 265 hp and a maximum torque of 620 Nm at 2,000 – 2,500 rpm. The car accelerates from 0 -100 km / hr in just 6.0 seconds. The two-litre four cylinder diesel engine of the BMW X4 xDrive20d produces an output of 140 kW / 190 hp and produces a maximum torque of 400 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm. The car accelerates from 0 -100 km / hr in just 8.0 seconds. The two-litre four cylinder BS VI compliant petrol engine of BMW X4 xDrive30i produces an output of 185 kW / 252 hp and produces a maximum torque of 350 Nm at 1,450 –4,800 rpm. The car accelerates from 0 -100 km / hr in just 6.3 seconds.

The 8-speed Steptronic Automatic Transmission performs smooth, almost imperceptible gear shifts. At any time, in any gear, the transmission collaborates perfectly with the engine, enabling it to develop its full power and efficiency. For even greater driving pleasure, the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission is available with steering wheel paddle shifters.

BMW xDrive, an intelligent all-wheel-drive system monitors the driving situation constantly and is quick to respond. The compact, low-weight and efficient all-wheel-drive system distributes the engine’s power between the front and rear axle exactly to suit the driving situation and the surface. Electronically controlled ‘Automatic Differential Brakes/Locks (ADB-X)’, extended ‘Dynamic Traction Control (DTC)’, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control help to conquer every terrain.

Adaptive Suspension makes it possible to adjust the damper characteristics to suit any given driving situation, increasing comfort and driving dynamics. Performance Control intervenes by providing controlled braking when turning, so that more power is distributed to the outer wheels and less to the inner wheels. Variable Sport Steering including Servotronic continuously adjusts the steering effort required depending on the current speed.

The all-new BMW X4 is equipped with a wide range of BMW ConnectedDrive systems like the Multifunctional Instrument Display which visualises driving-related cockpit information in a style that reflects the selected driving mode, BMW iDrive Touch with handwriting recognition, 26 cm (10.25”) BMW Navigation System Professional with touch functionality, 16 loud speakers with 600 Watts high-end Surround Sound system from Harman Kardon, BMW Apps, Wireless Apple Car Play® and connectivity through Bluetooth and USB. The full-color BMW Head-Up Display with a resolution of 400 x 800 pixels reflects driving-related information onto the windscreen.
