BMW X4 LAUNCHED

First of the cars to be manufactured at the BMW Chennai plant

  • Will only be available in the M Sport X variant
  • Three variants with two colors;
  • BMW is playing it rough with a no holds barred aggressive stance this year it seems. With just 20 days into the new year, the X4 has come to Indian shores, or made onthe Indian shores.

    That’s’ right folks, the new BMW X4will be manufactured in India at their Chennai plant, giving the car economical advantage over others.

    Ok so let’s start at the beginning, BMW has opted to give both diesel and petrol variants to the X4 in India. The diesel variant, The X4 xDrive20d M Sport X Priced at Rs 60.6 lakh (ex-showroom)is equipped with a 2.0-litre diesel engine that makes 190PS of maximum power and 400Nm of peak torque. This engine comes paired with BMW’s 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, and the powertrain is capable enough to propel the X4 forward with enough grunt to take it past the 100kmph mark in flat 8 seconds (BMW’s claimed figure).

    The petrol variant is the one which should make you going all gaga, if performance and thills are what you seek

    The X4 xDrive30i M Sport X is fine tuned to a 2.0litre petrol engine that makes max power of 252PS and 350Nm of peak power. The 100 km/hr mark is breached in merely 6.3 secs(BMW’s claimed figure). It too is paired with BMW’s 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission for effortless shifts.

    Interiors

    The X4 practically borrows its persona from the new- gen X3 however is a bit sportier than the X3 in its presentation and feel. The massive kidney grille that we have come to expect of a Beemer are right there, the signature LED headlamps, a massive macho bumper makes the X4 looks like a sporty hulk of a machine.

    Add to that the all black sporty interiors, the X4 is definitely a steal of a sporty XUC coupe at the price range.

    Standard Features:

  • Adaptive suspension
  • Adaptive LES headlights
  • Rain sensing wiper
  • Driving modes- EcoPro, Comfort, Sport
  • Auto headlamps
  • Mood lighting
  • Auto- dimming
  • Electrically foldable ORVMs
  • Auto dimming IRVM
  • Auto Tailgate
  • Panaromic sunroof
  • 3-zone auto climate control
  • Front and rear parking sensors
  • Apple car play with wireless wireless integration
  • Wireless charging
  • List of M Sport X package (which will be featured in the X4):

  • M Sport X exterior package with side skirts, wheel arch trim and rear apron with diffuser insert in Frozen Grey
  • M Aerodynamics package with front apron in body colour
  • Car key with exclusive M logo
  • M illuminated door sill finishers
  • 'M' designation on the side
  • Mirror base, B-pillar finisher and window guide rail in glossy black finish
  • Chrome tailpipe finisher
  • Aluminium finish on side window surrounds and window recess
  • Loading sill of luggage compartment in stainless steel
  • BMW Individual headliner anthracite

  • BMW has recognized the fact that the SUV segment is picking up in India and has lined up this perfect sporty luxurious SUV in-between the X3 and X5. Earlier I was a bit skeptic as to the value proposition that the X4 will bring, however with the expected price range and the host of features up for grabs, the X4 is a right step and an important product from the german brand.
