2015 BMW x4

Can the 2015 BMW X4 carve out the next niche of the compact to midsize crossover market? BMW calls is the Sport Activity Coupe. It sits tall, has a sloping coupe-like roof-line, and is currently the only X class BMW that is solely available in xDrive all-wheel-drive flavor. It’s the fifth X class vehicle, but the rest of its siblings can now be had in rear-wheel-drive sDrive as well.

This is the xDrive35i model with BMW’s ubiquitous and stellar 3.0L turbocharged straight-six with 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. BMW is continuing to refine the motor, and (if you can believe it) they say the maximum 300 lb-ft of twist are available between 1,200 – 5,000 rpm. That is one wide and flat torque curve. You get full push right off idle. This is very impressive. It also won’t kill you at the pump with a rating of 19 MPG city and 27 MPG highway.

The base price for the X4 xDrive28i is $44,700. That is a 240 horsepower four-cylinder version that gets 28 MPG on the highway. The xDrive35i starts at $48,000, and as with any BMW can be optioned to over $61,000. Naturally, you can get all the bells and whistles: all LED headlights, premium leather, adaptive cruise control, cold weather package, heads up display, and much more.
