BMW's new X4 comes with a coupe roofline, a hatchback, four doors, and sits up high on all-wheel drive, an automotive mash-up that is more crossover than the competition.
BMW introduced the X4 last year, a new model that serves as a smaller and cheaper version of the X6.
The X4 has four doors, but uses a coupe-like roof.
Sitting higher off the ground than its 3-series cousin, the X4 has an SUV-like front-end.
In this xDrive28i model, the engine compartment is barely filled by the 2-liter four-cylinder engine.
With its odd styling, the X4 is more crossover than what other automakers call a crossover.
All-wheel drive comes standard in the X4.
The hatchback allows for easy access to the cargo area.
This model includes the M Sport package, with sport seats and suspension.
Rear bench seats fold down to allow more cargo room.
Rear headroom is only somewhat impacted by the roofline.
An electric power-steering includes comfort and sport programs.
BMW retains analog dials instead of employing an LCD instrument cluster.
The sculptured drive selector shares space on the console with the latest iDrive controller.
BMW wide LCD includes this simple main menu design.
Sport and Sport Plus modes tighten steering and throttle response.
Eco Pro mode deadens the throttle response and reduces climate control power.
The Sport display shows real-time horsepower and torque.
The X4 is not a real offroader, but BMW includes this display showing the car's pitch and roll angles.
The optional rearview camera shows trajectory lines and includes object detection.
The navigation system's maps are very rich, but the system does not include lane guidance.
The optional phone cradle is very convenient, if you have an appropriate phone.
Apps integrated through the phone include social media and music services.
Built-in apps, using the X4's own data connection, include destination search and fuel prices.
Spotify, integrated through BMW ConnectedDrive, is one of the newest apps to find its way into BMW models.
