The new 2023 BMW X4 mainly follows the steps of the updated X3 that launched last year. It basically looks like an X3 with a flattened roof. This compact luxury crossover SUV was initially announced in 2013 as a concept. Later, at the New York International Auto Show 2014 it was formally launched. The X4 model, which shares powertrains with X3, is slightly larger than the X3 but smaller than the X5 model. A few months ago, the 88th Geneva International Motor Show premiered the latest vehicles and concepts cars, among them we found the newest BMW X4 2023 .
That was the first time everybody could see how the X4 would look like. From the enclosed, it could be blamed to remind a lot of the new X3 model. Some of the apparent similarities are the front fascia, with the grille, bumper and LED headlights. Now everyone wonders whether this new model BMW X4 will be able to surpass Mercedes GLC Coupe and Jaguar F-Pace.
The new 2023 BMW X4 is supposed to look like a sleek coupe instead of a boxy SUV, but at the end, it looks like an X3 just without additional cargo space. On the new X4 model, BMW applies style signs like we can see in lately exposed 8-series. Components which are transferred from it are the increased grill, slim front lights, liquid ships and wrap-around taillights with a famous “L” style. The exterior of the new X4 is quite different than its predecessor, and it is also three inches longer; more than an inch wider, and a bit lower.
One more thing that is different is a wheelbase which is also slightly longer, and that should translate to more interior space. It should give you and the passengers more comfortable riding adventures.
Interior is also shared with the new BMW X3, and that’s the place where we can find a sizeable 10.25-inch touchscreen technology which will provide as the primary interface. That will include navigation and BMW’s handy iDrive rotary controller. A head-up display comes as an option with which you can be connected to Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
Regarding Apple CarPlay there is a high possibility installation will have to be paid additionally. As far as the active safety technology concerns; there are driver-assistant which includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, and lane-keep assist.
As we said, the latest version of X4 is going to share the powertrain options of X3 model same as it shares the design. The brand new 2023 BMW X4 will be offered in two versions – the xDrive30i model and the M40i model, both with an all-wheel-drive option. The stronger one will be powered by a 3.0-liter inline turbo-6 that makes 355 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. That is the M40i model which will accelerate this vehicle up to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds.
A slightly weaker model, the xDrive30i, hides under the hood 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine that spins out 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. According to BMW, it will take 6.0 seconds to achieve a speed of 60 mph. To make the most of that power they also come on 20-inch alloy wheels as standard and have a sports exhaust system. Regardless of the versions; every model will come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Overseas, the X4 will be provided with a few extra powertrain choices.
2023 BMW X4 Release Date and Price
It’s been a long time since the concept was officially showcased. Finally, it debuted in March at the 88th Geneva International Motor. All of us just wait for it to hit the showrooms which is expected to be in July for the U.S. market. The price of the model we have waited for so long, the 2023 BMW X4; is not yet officially announced but because everything reminds of the X3 model, the price is also expected to be in that range.
