Redesign 2018

In addition to the new engines, the second-generation X4 moves to a new architecture -- BMW's CLAR platform -- and becomes lighter, more efficient and roomier, BMW says. The changes for the coupe-styled crossover are similar to those made for its sibling model, the BMW X3, last year. Debut models are the 2019 X4 xDrive30i and the X4 M40i. The 30i is powered by a new turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 248 hp, up from 240 hp for the engine in the outgoing 28i. The M40i is powered by a new turbocharged 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine producing 355 hp. That output is the same as in the outgoing M40i, but torque is up by 22 pound-feet to 365 in the redesigned model. The redesigned models also receive a wide array of new standard safety features such as BMW's Active Protection system.
