Time To Say Goodbye To The Current BMW X4

Industry News

Don’t worry, the new model will be here soon.

First introduced in 2014, the BMW X4 has had a short life. According to Bimmertoday via BMWBlog, the current version of the coupe-style crossover is expected to finish production at BMW’s Spartanburg plant as early as March 2018. Don’t be too alarmed, though, because the premium crossover isn’t being killed off for good. Nothing is official yet, but the new second-generation X4 is expected to be revealed the same month at Geneva and go into production at the same factory as its predecessor shortly after.

To be fair, BMW was open about the compact crossover’s lifespan when it was first announced four years ago. At the time, the X3 was given a refresh to mark the second half of its life cycle, so it makes sense for BMW to give its smaller X4 sibling an update as well. The new X4 is expected to share the same CLAR platform as the current 2018 X3, which is now in its third-generation. Internally, the X3 is known as the “G01,” while the new upcoming X4 is reportedly codenamed “G02,” just to reaffirm these model’s similarities. Expect to see some of the current X3’s driver safety assist technology and infotainment systems incorporated into the new X4, as well as a higher-quality interior.

Available powertrains are also likely to mirror the current X3 range, including the potent M40i which packs a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine producing 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. No doubt we’ll find out more details at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
