2015 BMW X4 Changes

Frivolity is the endgame of progress. It has to be. Computers are a great example. Once upon a time, they were magic. They allowed man to walk on the moon. They fueled an unprecedented boom in human knowledge and understanding. Today, much of the field’s public development centers on allowing people to play Candy Crush Saga while taking a dump.

Progress in the auto industry has similarly passed its apogee. We went from being able to buy a Ford, to being able to buy a Ford or a Hupmobile, to being able to buy bigger or smaller cars from our preferred brand, to choosing from bigger or smaller versions of a countless array of body styles from around the world, to now being able to buy less-practical versions of vehicles that, as it stood, nobody actually needed.

Basically a hatchback version of the X3, the X4 is a four-door “coupe,” with a low roof and a more intimate cabin, especially in the back seat. The front end has a bit more aggression to match the sporting intent. Engine choices are a 240-hp turbo four and a 300-hp turbo six, both mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and torque-vectoring all-wheel drive. Driving dynamics are excellent; it’s a BMW, after all. It’s also pricier than the X3, if you’re okay with paying more for less.

2015 BMW X4 Price

The 2015 BMW X4 hits showrooms this spring, priced from $45,625 for the X4 xDrive28 and $48,925 for the X4 xDrive35i. Both prices include destination charges.

If you’re going to be frivolous, you should at least be frisky, and so the X4 seen here is the six-cylinder. It starts at $48,950, while the four-cylinder begins at $45,650. With 300 horsepower, the turbo six slings the X4 to 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 13.8 at 100 mph. The full-bodied, torquey feel and smooth soundtrack are as pleasing in the X4 as they are in any of the rest of BMW’s lineup. And the eight-speed automatic is as transparent as any transmission on the road today, allowing the X4 to attain alarming speeds with disarming ease.

We did have plenty of other extras on this X4. In addition to the $1900 M Sport package ($2900 with Dynamic Damper Control), we had the $700 Driver Assistance package (rearview camera and park-distance sensors), the $1900 Lighting pack (adaptive full-LED headlights), the $2200 Premium pack (passive entry, adjustable lumbar, and satellite radio), and the $3150 Technology package (nav with real-time traffic info and a head-up display). Standalone extras included $550 for the Melbourne Red paint, $500 for heated front seats, and $500 for the ability to connect a smartphone with Bluetooth or a USB cable. A total of $61,325 for a less useful version of a luxury vehicle is pure frivolousness. But the X4 is a satisfying thing to drive, and while frivolity might be the endgame of progress, practicality is the concern of the less fortunate.

2015 BMW X4 Specs

the X4 purposely hones down the rear end of a more traditionally shaped sport-utility vehicle, to give it a more stylish stance. With the X4, BMW’s also plumped up the ute’s front air intakes and touched them up with LED fog lights. The break in the shoulder line, and the break of the C-pillar, is meant to cue drivers of the performance to come. Inside, the X4 offers a similar design to the X3, with aluminum and wood trim–or a choice of an M Sport or an xLine package. The M Sport adds special paint choices, M-badges interior trim, bigger wheel-and-tire combinations, and sport seats; xLine does the same visual changeup, with a more outdoorsy bent.

In overall footprint, the X4 isn’t quite identical to that of the X3. The coupelike iteration of BMW’s mid-size SUV is a half-inch or so longer than the X3, and sits 1.5 inches lower. It’s still a three-seater in back, but BMW’s sculpted the seat cushions to give preference to two passengers. Cargo space is down, but still checks in at 17.7 cubic feet behind the back seat, or 49.4 cubic feet behind the front seats, accessible via a power tailgate, with an option for Smart Opener–the system that uses sensors to detect a foot waving under the rear bumper, and to trigger the tailgate to open.

The X3 has been a good safety performer and has reasonable fuel economy, but BMW hasn’t gone into those facts and figures yet for the X4. It does include plenty of airbags, and options for adaptive cruise control, a forward-collision and a lane-departure warning system, and BMW’s bank of 360-degree, surround-view cameras. Parking Assistant lets the X4 steer itself into parallel parking spots while the driver attends the controls as a backup.

But it takes a long time for that perfectly weighted left pedal to do its job. This X4’s 192-foot stop from 70 mph is two feet longer than the last Chevrolet Suburban we tested. We’ve logged disappointing stops from lots of BMW SUVs lately, but this one is the worst. Tires that are stickier than the Goodyear Eagle LS2 run-flats worn by this example would definitely make a difference, and they’d probably improve on its already-impressive 0.86-g skidpad performance. It strikes us as silly that we tested the M Sport package and still so badly wanted better tires. Higher-performance rubber in staggered 245 (front) and 275 (rear) widths is a no-cost option we wish we’d had. We’re interested to know what sort of improvement we might see from them.
