However, BMW has chose to forward the second-generation X4 quite prematurely probably due to the state of the competition. As before, the X4 combines rakish coupe styling and SUV practicality for a more image-conscious take on on family transport. Driver assistance features and connectivity technologies have been improved.

The M40d will join the lineup in the first quarter 2019.

Finally, there are M variants available as well, powered by petrol as well as diesel.

"With its trademark free-revving performance, maximum output of 355 hp and peak torque of 365 lb-ft, the power unit in the all-new BMW X4 M40i enables it to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds", the company boasts.

Due to its enormous popularity, the first BMW X4 contributed significantly to the continuously increasing market success of the BMW X models.

BMW has digitally taken the wraps off its new SUV - the second-generation X4.

The auto will initially go on sale in the United Kingdom with a choice of two diesel-engined models - the 20d and the sporty M40d. A set of standard, gray 19-inch wheels round out the M40i's visual upgrades. If you're able to wait until later in the year, then you'll be able to buy the even more powerful M40i version, which can cover the same distance in 4.8sec. As standard, the all-new X4 includes LED headlights and a raft of safety assists including front collision warning, city collision mitigation and braking, and pedestrian detection.

Nav is standard on the vehicle with a 10.25-inch display and multiple ways to interact with the touchscreen.

The options list also includes a wireless implementation of Apple CarPlay.

Other new features include a larger panoramic moonroof and 3-zone climate control system. An acoustic glass windscreen is standard and helps cut noise on the move, while the same material can be specified for the front side windows, too. Rear passengers are treated to an extra inch of legroom compared to the outgoing X4, and with the rear seats folded, there's as much as 50.5 cubic feet of cargo space. These seats can be split 40:20:40 (using buttons in the boot) as standard; doing so will increase the car's 525-litre boot to 1,430 litres. An optional storage package adds hinged compartments, USB ports and hooks for the boot.

The BMW X4 will be available with a range of four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, and all come with xDrive four-wheel drive as standard. The xDrive30i packs a 2.0-liter turbo four that produces 252 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, allowing the coupe crossover to do 0-62 time in 6.3 seconds and achieve a top speed of 149 miles per hour. Average economy of up to 51.4mpg is claimed, along with Carbon dioxide emissions of between 163 and 168g/km, depending on exact specification.
