The new generation of 2019 BMW X4 was spotted, but this time the vehicle was spotted on the streets of Germany rather than the United States.
On the outside, we can see that BMW is already implementing styling clues previewed by the recently revealed 8-Series concept. Elements borrowed from the concept include the enlarged grille, thin headlights, fluid liners and wraparound taillights with a prominent “L” pattern. In addition to the new design of the taillights, the new X4 is equipped with a license plate attachment point that has been moved from the rear hatch to the rear bumper. The result is a more sober look, even if it looks like the Mercedes-Benz GLC coupe.
Inside, things will be shared with the X3. This means that a large 10.25-inch touch screen will serve as the main interface. Pilots will be able to control it using the iDrive controller or voice activation.
American 2019 BMW X4 are likely to share their powertrain range with the X3. For 2019, the X3 four-wheel-drive base is dubbed xDrive30i and is equipped with a four-cylinder turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-248 horsepower. Buyers can switch to the M40i, more powerful, with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine of 355 horsepower. Both models come standard with all-wheel drive and eight-speed automatic transmission. Abroad, the X4 will be offered with a handful of additional powertrain options.
We expect BMW to officially present the X4 2019 next month at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Look for crossover SUV sales built in South Carolina to start in mid-2018.
