Driven: Sporty BMW X4 hits SA streets

Comment on this story
  1. The BMW X4 has just gone on sale in SA, with prices ranging from R651 707 to R808 490.
  2. Dubbed a Sports Activity Coupe, and built on the 3 Series platform, the X4 is to the X3 what the X6 is to the X5.
  3. In keeping with its sportier positioning, ground clearance is 36mm less than on the X3.
  4. A full range of engines is available culminating in the 225kW 3-litre TwinPower turbopetrol in the xDrive35i.
  5. The X4 provides a decent ride quality and agile road holding.
  6. The cabin has all the default BMW finishes and technologies.
