  • 2020 BMW X4 M Competition

    The precise distinction between cars and crossover SUVs (or Sport Activity Vehicles, as BMW prefers to call its crossovers) is a topic of spirited debate, but BMW project leader for vehicle dynamics Bernd Barbisch knows the difference exactly. A crossover is defined by 203 millimeters, or 8 inches. That is the minimum ride height for a vehicle to be classified as a light truck rather than as a passenger car, he explained. So his efforts to make the X3 M and X4 M drive and handle as much like their M3 and M4 counterparts as possible began with that as the literal floor upon which all of the...

    2020 BMW X3 M and X4 M arrive with 503 hp and 177 mph top speed

    It's the new reality: A sporty crossover SUV is as important as a sport sedan from an automaker that makes performance one of its talking points. So it was only a matter of time before BMW released M versions of its compact X3 and X4 crossovers. On Tuesday, BMW revealed the 2020 BMW X3 M and X4 M...

  • 2019 BMW X4

    Greenville, South Carolina’s Swamp Rabbit Trail shadows the Reedy River along 22 miles of a former rail line. It includes a section named for American Tour de France hero George Hincapie, who resides nearby and leads bike rides for dedicated cycling tourists. It is partially lined by seemingly impenetrable kudzu vine undergrowth that is synonymous with the South. All of these seem like natural components of upstate South Carolina, but in truth, they are demonstrations of the power of transplantation. Kudzu is Japanese, Hincapie’s a New Yorker, and the Swamp Rabbit Trail sprung...

    Bumper crop: 2019 BMW X4 luxury crossover revealed

    When the BMW X4 launched in 2014, the collective eye roll from enthusiasts was audible—including one from yours truly. Four years later and nearly 20,000 examples on the road (almost as many 6-Series were sold in the same time period) and we should eat our hats. I hear steak sauce helps wool...

    2019 BMW X4 spy shots and video

    The current BMW X4 was only introduced for 2015 but a redesigned model is already in the works. And judging by the lack of camouflage gear on prototypes, the debut can’t be far. The quick replacement rate is due to the X3, from which the X4 is derived, having just been redesigned itself, as a...

    2016 BMW X4 M40i first drive review

    BMW’s current model lineup is a quagmire. Sure, to the brand’s enthusiasts it’s a nice, ordered progression of models and choices; but to others it’s a muddle of models, body styles, trim versions, and powertrain variants that can seem difficult to parse. The 2016 BMW X4...

  • 2016 BMW M2

    BMW will be out to remind fans that it’s still capable of building some fast cars with the presentation of the M2 and X4 M40i models at next month’s 2016 Detroit Auto Show. The M2 was shown briefly at last month’s SEMA show but this will be the first time that the X4 M40i is being unveiled publicly. The M2 is one of the most anticipated cars of 2016. It’s confirmed to go on sale in the spring, as a 2016 model, and will likely be priced a little over $50k, making the car a potential rival to Mercedes-AMG’s CLA45. BMW says pricing will be announced closer to the...

  • BMW Concept X4

    The Shanghai Auto Show is gearing up, and though we've seen many of the cars making debuts there already, some will be surprises. The BMW Concept X4 is not one of them. It is, however, one of the most interesting. Styled like a coupe, but built as a crossover; sized like a 3-Series, but nestling between the X3 and X5, the BMW Concept X4 previews the next production Sports Activity Coupe from the brand that knows no limit to its model proliferation. The latest photos give us a better contextual feel of how the X4 will look on the road. Previous studio shots did little to frame the X4's size or...

    BMW Concept X4: Dividing By Zero

    As BMW's model proliferation continues, with a renaming scheme impending, we have to wonder: where will it end? Not here, apparently. The latest addition to the BMW fold is a concept, but it appears to be a concept in name only. The BMW Concept X4 brings to the X3 size class an X6-like Sports...

    UPDATE: The sketch above isn't actually a design concept for the rumored X4. It's a design concept sketch of the X3, as little as it may resemble the final product.
