A Review of the 2017 BMW X4

2017 BMW X4 – Introduction

This is a brand that is known for the efficiency, class and power of its output. That has not changed one bit with the 2017 BMW X4. It is straddles the lines between an outright coup and an SUV. Perhaps that is fortunate because this car is able to pool together the best of both worlds. It takes on some elements of the large X5 but is far sportier. This car has amazingly kept the technical features and luxurious attitude of the 7 series whilst bringing in a new type of dynamism which is bound to yield a lot of kudos for the already premier car maker.

Pedestrian warning technology makes this one of the simplest cars to drive. Other similar perks include the lane departure warning, brake activation, collision warning and parking sensors. A remote controlled auxiliary heater means that those freezing winter days are a thing of the past. The dual zone climate control also helps to keep the summer cool. Much of the cabin is reminiscent of the X3 but with a panoramic sunroof. The car comes with top and rearview parking cameras. They have added an iDrive mounted touchpad and the car is fully prepped for Bluetooth. On the exterior you will find a 110.6” wheelbase and a vehicle that is as long as 184.3”.
