The All-New 2019 BMW X4 is Light on its Feet

We loved this Edmunds review of the all-new 2019 BMW X4, because it showed the hidden draw of this unique, fast-backed crossover: It's not for everyone--but it's not supposed to be.

The BMW X4 is all-new for 2019, adopting the new vehicle platform that underpins the BMW X3--its slightly larger cousin--and this new foundation brings a lot of other updates with it.

What's New for 2019?

  • Lighter, by about 100 pounds
  • More aerodynamic in its design
  • Wider, lower stance
  • Lower center of gravity
  • More cargo space than 2018
  • More leg room all around
  • More standard features

The 2019 BMW X4 has always been an eccentric option in the world of luxury SUVs and premium crossovers. But it's lighter, longer, more sinewy body makes it an even stronger contender against other, more established compact SUVs.

Practical and Poised: the 2019 BMW X4 xDrive30i

The base BMW X4 model starts at $50,450, and its standard 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is a capable and practical match for daily life in the Austin area. Making a spirited 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque from its BMW turbo engine, this new SAC gives you the power you want, while still remaining an efficient and mild-mannered commuter.

Potent and Powerful: the 2019 BMW X4 M40i

This high-performance coupe-like crossover starts at $60,450, and is one of the most powerful X models in the Sports Activity Coupe lineup, boasting a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine that makes 355 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque. With the 2019 BMW X4's lighter body, that power feels even more ready and responsive in your hands, whether you're accelerating out of a corner on a winding road or pushing for the pass on an open highway.
