5 reasons to buy the 2020 BMW X4

1. Spirited performance

2020 BMW X4 Review:Engine | CarMax

The base 2020 BMW X4 xDrive30i produces 248 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque from its 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just six seconds. That's some nice zip for merging onto the highway or passing in the left lane. For even spicier performance, you'll love the athletic 2020 X4 M40i, which uses a 3.0L turbocharged V6 to make 382 hp and 365 lb.-ft. of torque. This model can sprint from zero to 60 mph in only 4.4 seconds, making your commute feel more like a day at the track. Both engines pair to a quick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission with BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system for greater precision.

2. Agile handling

One of the X4's biggest strengths is its nicely balanced ride from the M Sport suspension, which comes standard on the 2020 BMW X4 xDrive30i. It's designed to feel solid and composed when cornering or leaning into curves, helping to inspire confidence on twisty sections of road. For even greater control, the 2020 BMW X4 M40i features a standard Adaptive M Suspension, which uses electronically controlled dampers that are designed to adjust to the road and your driving style. With this adaptive suspension, you'll enjoy more agile handling and sporty performance.

3. Daring looks

This “Sport Activity Coupe" has a unique presence with its low, sweeping fastback roofline and distinctive rear spoiler. The exterior is accentuated by muscular lines and a large double-kidney front grille with air intakes, which add to the X4's athletic character. The 2020 X4 M40i also includes some stylish additions, like an aerodynamic kit, black chrome tailpipe finishers, and contrasting exterior trim. Both the xDrive30i and M40i ride on large, 19-inch wheels that will turn heads as you cruise on by.

4. Premium interior

With the 2020 BMW X4 interior, you can expect a bright and well-equipped cabin to keep you satisfied on longer drives. An expansive power-adjustable dual-panel panoramic moonroof fills the cabin with natural light, while the supportive front sport seats with power adjustments are nicely cushioned to minimize fatigue. SensaTec leatherette upholstery comes standard in the 2020 X4, while available Vernasca leather with contrast stitching provides added style. Standard conveniences—like a power liftgate, dual cupholders in the front center console and rear armrest, and automatic climate controls—are practical and functional for daily life.

5. Impressive technology

All models come standard with Live Cockpit Professional, which includes an iDrive system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display and voice recognition. Apple CarPlay and hands-free Bluetooth capabilities are standard on the X4, along with a navigation system to find your way around town. Both the xDrive30i and M40i trims also include a head-up display on the front windshield, so you can view important driving and multimedia-related information without taking your eyes off the road.
