2019 BMW X4 M40d
An increase of 81 millimetres in exterior length to 4,752 millimetres, 54 millimetres added to the wheelbase (now 2,864 millimetres), an extra 37 millimetres of width (1,918 millimetres) and a 3-millimetre drop in height (to 1,621 millimetres) lend the all-new BMW X4 dynamically stretched proportions. Short overhangs and powerfully formed, subtly hexagonal wheel arches emphasise the perfectly balanced 50:50 distribution of weight between the front and rear axle.
In the centre of the striking front end stands a large BMW kidney grille in three-dimensional look. Twin headlight units with dynamic contours and horizontal foglamps integrated into the outer air intakes form a new interpretation of the familiar six-eyed face espoused by BMW X models. All of the light functions feature LED technology as standard.
The precise shoulderline – which takes in the door openers en route to the rear lights – and the character line between the wheel arches break up the surfaces of the car’s flanks. This creates clearly defined haunches, which are additionally emphasised by the drawn-in glasshouse at the rear. The coupe- style roofline slides into the rear window with an elegant flourish before dipping down more steeply to the rear. The window graphic also underlines the dynamic proportions of the all-new BMW X4, thanks to a smoothly rising sill line and an elongated take on the Hofmeister kink “counter-swing” at the base of the C-pillars.
Clearly structured surfaces and horizontal lines shape the car’s tail. The LED rear lights, with their three-dimensional shaping, are slim in design and positioned at the extreme edges of the rear. Together with the twin exhaust tailpipes (shared by all engine variants), they magnify the width of the rear end.
