The 2019 BMW X4 is related to the BMW X3, but it's longer and lower, with a different roofline.

The X4's infotainment system is great, with a bright and clear 10.25-inch touchscreen. While it does support Apple CarPlay, you'll unfortunately need to pay an annual subscription to keep using it after the first year of ownership.

EPA fuel-economy ratings for this model are 22 miles per gallon city and 29 mpg highway. It's easy to hit those figures in real-world driving.

Though the X4 drives well overall, its lazy throttle responses and somewhat muted chassis feedback mean it's not quite as involving as we'd like from a luxury crossover in this class.

Cargo space is good but not as great as in the BMW X3. You get 18.5 cubic feet of storage behind the rear seats, about 10 cubic feet less than in an X3.
