BMW X4 Review, For Sale, Colours, Interior, Specs & News

Launched locally in 2014, and quickly updated in 2015, the BMW X4 is, for all intents and purposes, the same as the brand's X3 SUV under its skin. The key difference is its more swooping roofline and unique coupe-like looks.

The roofline does take space away from the three rear seat passengers in the five-door, five-seat X4, but the polarising design has worked for BMW. For Australia, two petrol powered and two diesel driven models are offered, in all-wheel-drive (xDrive, in BMW parlance) form, equipped with eight-speed automatic gearboxes. The X Models X4 Xdrive20I M Sport is the base model and kicks the line-up off at $95,700.

The hottest of all is the $185,200 X Models X4 M Competition, which makes 230kW and a thundering 630Nm of torque. It's a substitute for the X4 M40i petrol which is not made in right-hand drive.

Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW X4 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • How much does the Porsche Macan cost to maintain?

    You’d think this would be a fairly simple question to answer, but in reality, it’s far from it. It seems neither BMW nor Porsche offer what we know as fixed or capped price servicing, that is; a known price that the service will cost, paid when you need to have it carried out. This is not uncommon with prestige brands and reflects the changing costs of imported service parts as well as different marketing approaches.

    BMW, however, comes closest to this concept with what it calls its Service Inclusive Basic Plan which requires the car’s buyer to pay up front, typically for the first five years, of servicing when the car is purchased. That sounds odd, but it makes sense to buyers leasing their cars as the service costs are then paid for as part of the financing package.

    In the case of the BMW X4, this package, which covers consumables such as filters, oil, spark plugs and brake fluid (but not clutches, brake pads and windscreen wipers; that’s another step up to the Service Inclusive Plus Plan) lasts for five years or 80,000km (whichever comes first) and works out to an average of $350 per service or a total of $1750 over the plan’s duration. Fundamentally, it’s like other car-makers’ capped-price servicing but you pay up front for it.

    Meanwhile, at Porsche, the servicing costs for a Macan over the same 80,000km/five-year period will depend on what state you live in as labour rates vary from state to state. Since you’re from NSW, I’ll use the data from that state. As such, the Macan will need an annual service at one-year/15,000km costing $695. The next service at two years/30,000km is an intermediate service at $995, followed by another annual service at three years/45,000km ($695 again). The four-year/60,000km service is a major one costing $1750, followed by the five- year/75,000km service at $695 to end with. In total, that’s a grand total of $4830, making the Porsche by far the most expensive car to service for those first five years.

  • What year BMW X4 can I purchase on my budget?

    It depends on which model X4 you want. With $65,000 you should be able to get into a 2018 model.

  • Best prestige SUV coupe?

    From the research, my pick is definitely the Benz. It's a development of the classy GLC wagon but with improvements including better suspension. The Benz costs a little more but there is stock in showrooms now so you should jump quickly if you want one.

BMW X4 Interior

Say what you want about the exterior of the BMW X4, the interior is more understated. The dashboard, trim (leather is available) and design are all basically picked out of the X3 and placed inside the "coupe-style" X4's cabin. It's a neat and mostly functional space, though rear headroom is hampered by the sloped roofline.

Shown above are interior details for the BMW X4 2019.
