Ottawa Auto Show: 2015 BMW X4

Published on March 19 2015

''Because there’s a BMW X vehicle for everyone, the X4 Series slots itself perfectly between the already established BMW X3 and X5.''

With smaller features and a more compact build, this SUV offers up all the luxury and dynamism you’d expect from BMW but in a brand new package. 

Brand new in 2014, the BMW X4 features the same coupe SUV styling that the X6 does, but in a much smaller package. So the same design cues found in the X6 flow down to the X4, but in a much more subdued manner. Flared front inlets and strong side lines give the BMW X4 a strong stance, and the coupe rear adds to the flare of it all. 

Below the design of the X4 lurks two engine choices: a 3.0L TwinPower 4-cylinder that produces an even 300 horsepower and torque (in the xDrive35i model), and a TwinPower inline-4 that’s good for 241 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque (xDrive28i). The X4 also features the same 8-speed Steptronic transmission found in the X6. 

Both versions of the X4 are equipped with xDrive, BMW’s highly capable all-wheel drive system. 

Similar to the X6, the 2015 BMW X4 features an ECO PRO mode that helps the CUV be as efficient as possible, especially when coasting at highway speeds. The drivetrain is disconnected from the engine when simply cruising (not applying any throttle pressure) and can reduce fuel consumption by up to 20%. 

Inside the 2015 BMW X4 you’ll find typical Bavarian fare, from leather-clad seats to BMW’s iDrive system displayed on a large Control Display, along with convenient features such as contactless trunk opening (which means you just have to swing your foot beneath the rear bumper to open the trunk with certain available trims). And despite the coupe line, the X4 is actually extremely spacious and offers up seating for five and plenty of trunk space for all your weekend adventures. 

The 2015 BMW X4 also features driver assist features such as available Head-Up display, High-Beam Assistant, and surround view cameras for easy parking.
