The M40i sits at the top of the X4 range. Well, that is until the X4 M arrives, but that will cost lot more than the M40i’s $109,900.

Standard features include a 10.25-inch touchscreen with sat nav, reversing camera, a 12.3-inch virtual instrument cluster, digital radio, six-speaker stereo, full leather upholstery, auto parking, a head-up display, adaptive M suspension, M Sport differential, panoramic sunroof, Harmon/Kardon stereo, proximity key, adaptive LED headlights and 21-inch alloys. If you want Apple CarPlay you’ll have to option it at $623.

The M40i has a six-cylinder turbo-petrol 3.0-litre engine making 265kW/500Nm. As with all X4s the M40i is all-wheel drive and has an eight-speed automatic transmission. This is the thirstiest engine in the range with BMW saying it’ll need 9.2L/100km of premium unleaded.

Like the xDrive30i below it in the range the M40i comes with the full AEB system which operates at highway and city speeds and also brings adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assistance. There are also LED headlights, lane departure warning and auto parking.
