Share

With its extrovert design, versatile driving properties and dynamic character, the first ever mid-range Sports Activity Coupé in the premium segment has built up an impressive fan community within just a little over four years.

There's an oversized 10.25-inch touchscreen, optional head-up display (now 75 percent larger), and both gesture- and voice-control functionality. The petrol engines for the X4 will come with the following specifications.

Digital services on offer through BMW ConnectedDrive include compatibility with Apple and Android smartphones, and Amazon Alexa personal assistants.

BMW will also bring across its M Sport X trim level alongside the usual M Sport and X Line styling packages, which like on the smaller X2 will feature grey styling front and rear and wheel options right up to 21-inches.

BMW " s relentless focus on the SUV/coupe sector shows no sign of waning with the release of an all-new BMW X4. This performance-orientated model produces 355bhp and manages 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds; economy of up to 31.4mpg and Carbon dioxide emissions of up to 213g/km are the trade-off. The boot has a capacity of 525 litres and the load space can be expanded to a maximum of 1,430 litres by folding down the sections of the rear backrest, with its standard 40:20:40 split.

It goes from 0-60 in 4.6 seconds.

A straight-six diesel will power the range-topping M40d, which will generate 326PS and 680Nm of torque.

In addition to the new engines, the second-generation X4 moves to a new architecture - BMW's CLAR platform - and becomes lighter, more efficient and roomier, BMW said Wednesday. It will carry a price tag of $50,450. It has ground clearance of eight inches and can ford water up to 19.6 inches in depth, helping it take "in its stride...everything...from crests and bumps in the road to gravel tracks, icy roads and steep slopes".

Standard safety features include a frontal collision warning system and automatic emergency braking. Optional safety features include active cruise control, which can bring the auto to a stop and pull away again in traffic, along with traffic-sign recognition and lane-departure warning systems.

BMW practically invented the crossover coupe with the launch of the X6 in 2007.

The four-wheel-drive system operates in conjunction with a standard Performance Control function (which provides torque-vectoring) and BMW's Driving Experience Control system (which allows the driver choose between Sport, Comfort and Eco-Pro drive modes). Add the optional "Driving Assistant Plus" safety pack and the X4 will benefit from active steering systems that can keep the vehicle in lane at up to 130mph, along with various cross-traffic and cross-wind warning systems.

The Surge 2 Has Been Announced
As is the case with most sequels, Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive promised more of what they delivered with the original. Expect changes that might expand the mechanics for combat and progression to new heights.
