Is it a coupe? Is it a sedan? Turns out the X4 is neither of those things. BMW calls it a Sports Activity Coupe, which regardless of title looks like a tall sedan with a sloping roof. All models come with all-wheel drive, but there are two distinct trims and engines. The xDrive30i comes with a 2.0-liter twin-turbo four-cylinder, 248 horsepower and a 6-second 0-60 mph time, while the M40i comes with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six that has 355 hp and a 4.6-second 0-60 mph time.
The X4 is well-equipped from the factory with navigation, a sports leather steering wheel, panoramic roof, and park distance control as standard equipment. Various tiers and options packages are available adding advanced safety tech and other upgrades. The exterior can be upgraded with larger wheels and LED lighting.
The X4 has competition from within the BMW X-lineup itself, as well as the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and Audi Q5. Pricing starts at $50,450 for the xDrive30i model and $60,450 for the M40i.
