How sporty and peppy is the 2017 BMW X4 M40i?
TFL’s Roman Mica and professional driver Paul Gerrard found out recently when they took the BMW for a spin at IMI Motorsports Park in Dacono, Colorado, for episode 20 of TFL’s Hot or Not video series.
Before Paul was set loose with the X4, Roman gave a rundown of the vehicle, which tested is priced at $67,495.
Under the hood, the X4 has a 3-liter twin-scroll turbo engine that produces 355 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque that sends power to all four wheels. The vehicle also has an 8-speed transmission with paddle shifters.
The TFL test in Colorado was 1 mile above sea level, which tends to impact speeds and make vehicles a bit slower as opposed to tests at sea level.
When Paul did the track test, he noticed a lot of understeer, and felt that more power was going to the front than the rear.
How fast was the X4 overall for the track test? How quickly did it accelerate from zero to 60? And, is the X4 just as fast as the X6 or is it much slower? Find out by watching the complete TFL video above.
