New BMW X4 on the way to its world premiere

New BMW X4 on the way to its world premiere

COMMENTS


Munich. The new BMW X4 (fuel consumption combined: 9.0 – 5.4 l/100 km [31.4 – 52.3 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 209 – 142 g/km) demonstrates its strengths in advance of its official presentation at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show. For this purpose the new BMW X4 will be undertaking a trip from Munich via Davos to the location of its world premiere in Geneva.

Flüela Pass Davos: the peak of driving dynamics.
All the stations along the premiere tour are designed to emphasise highlights of the new BMW X4. The route first takes it across Flüela Pass. As it navigates the winding roads of this Swiss Alpine pass road at 2,383 metres above sea level, the new BMW X4 can expect to encounter snow depths of more than a metre.

In these extreme weather conditions the second generation of the successful BMW model can make full use of its driving dynamics qualities. The BMW xDrive all-wheel drive, which is standard in all models, makes the BMW X4 especially versatile and sporty. The latest edition of the system is characterised by reduced weight and optimised internal efficiency. In addition, the precise electronic control of the intelligent all-wheel drive ensures especially sporty and brand-typical power distribution. The tightly winding, snow-covered hairpin bends of the Flüela Pass are the ideal setting for the rear-wheel-oriented xDrive all-wheel drive. Dynamic cornering turns piloting the X4 into an intense driving experience in these conditions.

Combined with a centre of gravity lowered even further as compared to the predecessor as well as a total weight of some 50 kg less, the car's powerful engines ensure even better handling and thrilling driving pleasure.

Lake Geneva: premiere for the powerfully expressive athlete.
The final station of the premiere tour is Lake Geneva. The shores of Europe's biggest inland water body against the spectacular backdrop of Mont Blanc are the perfect setting for highlighting the fascinating design of the new BMW X4. The already sporty exterior has a significantly more athletic and mature look in the new model. This is not least due to the increase of approx. 8 cm in the vehicle's length, the visibly wider track, the clearly defined athletic shoulder and the gentler curve of the roof line. All this makes the new BMW X4 a real eye-catcher in front of this stunning panorama. A few days later, on 8 March, the BMW X4 will be presented at the Geneva International Motor Show on the opening day.

The new BMW X4 will then replace the previously available model, which has developed into a huge success for the brand ever since it was first presented in 2013. Some 200,000 units of this Sports Activity Coupé were sold in less than five years.

Looks like a Lexus or something? Your statement is generic.

led bars look very similar to the lc coupe. it's boring. bmw used to have unique and impressive designs, but there hasn't been a single groundbreaking change in their design language for nearly a decade and the models look stale.

These "turtleback" suv things are not for everyone. Bmw, Merc, Acura, Honda, Porsche etc are all making them. Personally I like BMW lines way more than any of the competitor vehicles. I think the rear versus the competition is much nicer. The front I feel needs a bit more aggressiveness but it's not far off. I like it, didn't think I would but I do. It's a hell of a lot better than the F97.

I agree, can't stand the GLC (despite the rear looking similar), GLC is so round...

hoping the X4M is super aggressive looking

I agree. I have a feeling this is what the true M is going to look like. And I'm fine with that. Even more aggressive with black rims, carbon fiber roof, exhaust, but of course more expensive. I still think Porsche makes the sexiest looking SUVs. Mercedes version looks pretty cool too, I have to admit.

You would also pay a premium, 5k+ weigh, gas guzzler, and not a better DD
They all have a shoe to fit, some folks with X5M and X6M even put springs or coilovers to lower their SUV do they need to get a sedan ?

What vehicle was bmw's last groundbreaking and best design?
