Would love to own it. A bit out of my price range however. This vehicle would replace my Lexus RX350 which I have owned for 3 years.

Fun funky raised wagon thing :)

I'm a old school BMW guy, coming from a 2003 manual e46 330i ZHP. It's 15 years old and its time for a newer car. These days its really hard to find a real drivers car. So originally I test drove a bunch of sporty cars like the Golf Rs and GLA45 AMGs. They drove very nice once you are going very fast on the freeways, but around town or commuting in stop and go traffic which I will be doing 99% of the time, they were horrible. The combination of turbo lag and automatic dual clutch lag (the time you hit the go pedal to the time it actually moves) was horrible (remember I am coming from a manual). Sure they have launch control, but knowing me the tires would be gone by the time I made it to work! So I started thinking, maybe a SUV would make more sense than a hot hatch. So I looked at Cayennes, Land Rover Sports, etc. But then the gas price was going up and 14 mpg was not sounding to good. So now the compromise, a small crossover! My wife already drives a big crossover so we don not need another big vehicle. I never thought in my life I would own a crossover, it's not that I don't like them. I just thought a car guy that had to drive something looks manly, you know something very high and tough or very low and fast looking (I use the word looking because 99% of us just drive a car for looks)! LOL... anyways after test driving a few horrible (some had hidden body work, suspension damage, trunk full of dog hair, etc) certified and not certified crossovers. I was tired after looking at over a dozen cars, so when I saw this certified lease returned X4, I was like WOW... it was light (maybe the steering is too light) and the lag taking off was minimal. Plus I could brake torque it (where you hold the brakes and apply the gas so that the car takes off quicker when you let up on the brake)! The X4 has great stability in fast turns (49/51% weight balance) especially with the M-sport package and staggered 20" P-Zero tires (rear are 275 wide)! For a vehicle that weighs about 4200 lbs. It gets good fuel mileage (almost 30 highway mpg). The crash ratings were very good. Yes the trunk and rear seats are smaller than the X3, but I drive alone 99% of the time. Sure the Macan S is faster and better on a track but I can't afford one of those. So if you do not need a large trunk to carry a refrigerator, drive on a race track often or go through 3 feet of mud everyday, go test drive the X4!

2018 BMW X4 Overview


The 2018 BMW X4 is a luxury compact SUV that seats five passengers. It competes with the Lincoln MKX, Mercedes-Benz MKC, and Audi Q5.

Two trims are available: the xDrive28i and M40i.

The X4 has a more coupe-like profile than its X3 sibling. The front-end retains the typical BMW styling cues, but the lower fascia is blatantly aggressive. Adaptive Xenon headlights, LED fog lights, power/heated side mirrors, power moonroof, and a power liftgate come standard. Adaptive suspension is also available.

Under the Hood

The X4 xDrive28i is powered by a standard 240-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Powering the X4 M40i is the 355-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder joined with the 8-speed automatic.

Inside, the X4 has a premium leatherette/wood-trim interior with a 40/20/40-split folding rear seat. Maximum cargo capacity is 49.4 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. The center stack features a standard audio system, which includes CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port.
