Due in South Africa in the last quarter of 2018 is the 2993cc turbodiesel six xDrive30d, tuned for 195kW at 4000 revs and 620Nm from 2000-2500rpm, which will launch it to 100km/h in a claimed 5.8 seconds and on to 240km/h, while burning an NEDC-rated 6.2 litres per 100km.
Now, entering its second-generation, the 2019 X4 gets major changes with a long list of new standards that'll help it stand out from the crowd in a super competitive compact SUV segment - going head-to-head with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe and Range Rover Evoque. The 2019 BMW X4 will be offered in two trim levels, the standard X4 xDrive30i and the performance oriented X4 M40i.
Visually, the X4 retains its crossover-coupe shape, with chunky design elements front and rear that aren't too dissimilar from those on the X3. The 2019 X4 is now just over 3-inches longer than its predecessor, while its wheelbase has grown just over 2-inches longer and its now 1.4-inches wider. Unique silver body styling parts, aluminium accents and specific 19-inch alloy wheels set the xLine model apart, while the new M Sport X trim brings a sportier off-road feel with grey accents and unique air intakes and body styling, including its own set of 19-inch alloys. The Driving Assistant Plus Package highlights include active lane keep assist with side collision avoidance, traffic jam assist and evasion aid and front and rear cross traffic alert.
BMW also offers its "Parking Assistant Plus" pack on the X4, which includes a panoramic parking camera system with top-down and 3D views, as well as helping the you select and park in both parallel spots and bays.

The least powerful is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol in the xDrive20i, which produces 181bhp and pushes the X4 to 62mph from rest in 8.3 seconds. It will take the X4 xDrive 30i six seconds to reach 60 miles per hour.
On the inside, the X4 once again shares a lot with the third-gen X3. That is to say, comfy and nicely appointed, just with less space for cargo and backseat passengers. The M40i is powered by a new turbocharged 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine producing 355 hp. All feature xDrive all-wheel drive and all come with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Orders open on 15 February, with a starting price of £42,900 for an X4 20d Sport.
