BMW X4 M Competition 2019 review
M Division’s 503bhp version of the smaller BMW SUV-coupé has striking pace and sporting purpose
This is the other new M Division performance SUV – except that BMW prefers to describe the X4 M Competition as a ‘sports activity coupé’. In this case, that means it retains a five-seat interior but has a plunging roofline that trades passenger space for perceived exterior style and gives up a little bit of boot volume to the equivalent X3 M Competition.The X4 M uses the same brand new turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine as the X3 M and has a near-identical drivetrain and suspension specification but for a slightly wider rear track. It’s marginally lower and longer in the rear overhang than the X3 M, but it has the same claimed kerb weight and performance.BMW UK will charge a premium of just under £3000 for the X4 M, with the only material differences between it and the X3 M, aside from the ones we’ve already covered, concerning colour and optional equipment. You can add a load retention net for the boot, backrest angle adjustment for the rear seats and rear sunblinds on the X3 M but not here, however.
