Launching the second GENERATION BMW X4
Last week Friday, the new 2019 BMW X4 was launched to the delight of guests who watched the unveiling at the company's showroom on Lady Musgrave Road. The model, which debuted in 2014, is now in its second generation and has been improved with enhanced driving dynamics and a standout exterior design.
It boasts a strong coupe silhouette along with driver assistance systems and connectivity. There is also some differences with the previous model as it is 81mm longer with 54mm added to the wheelbase and 37mm extra width and is lower by 3mm.
All of these dynamically stretched proportions come together to emphasise its 50:50 weight distribution. It retains the brand's trademark BMW kidney grille and twin headlight units, while the new horizontal LED fog lights integrated into the outer air intakes form a new interpretation of the familiar X model face.
All models feature Adaptive LED headlights as standard. The side profile is marked out by a sweeping shoulder line, with clearly defined haunches and distinctive wheel arches, while the lean coupe roof line is enhanced by a smoothly rising sill line.
To the back are the L-shaped LED rear lights, with their three-dimensional housing that are positioned at the extreme edges of the rear. Together with the twin exhaust tailpipes they magnify the width of the rear end.
All the controls are clearly arranged, while the slightly raised seating position, typical of BMW X models, affords drivers a superb view of the road ahead. The driver-focused layout of the cockpit - a BMW tradition - helps to create a great driving experience at all times. There are also redesigned sports seats with boldly contoured side bolsters that provide outstanding lateral support even in extreme handling situations.
The surfaces of the instrument panel and door panels merge smoothly into one another, while the X logos embossed into the electroplated surfaces of the front and rear doors are further eye-catching details.
The electric window buttons, the Start/Stop button, the multifunction buttons on the steering wheel and the controls on the centre console can also be embellished with galvanic detailing as an option.
The 2019 BMW X4 is now available and starts from $11,995,000 for the executive line.
