X appeal? New BMW X4 SUV unveiled

X appeal? New BMW X4 SUV unveiled

It's also got it where it counts, with the Performance Model rocking an inline six-cylinder engine.

To make the most of that power, not only do they have a firmer suspension set-up and a sports transmission, they also come on 20-inch alloy wheels as standard and have a sports exhaust system.

However, BMW has chose to forward the second-generation X4 quite prematurely probably due to the state of the competition.

An all-new version of BMW's coupe-shared X4 crossover has been unveiled ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, which runs from 8 to 18 March.

Tottenham come from 2-0 down to draw at Juventus
We are facing Tottenham in the Champions League , a really physical and technical team. This time it was a foul by Serge Aurier but Higuain smashed it against the bar.

But the core-selling model for the X4 is expected to be the 20d armed with 190hp 2.0-litre diesel-turbo, eight-speed automatic and xDrive four-wheel drive. Claimed economy for the 265PS diesel is a respectable 47.9mpg and 156g/km, while the 0-62mph sprint can be completed in 5.8 seconds.

The M40d, priced from £55,315, offers 326hp, gets from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, has official combined fuel economy of 44.1mpg, and Carbon dioxide emissions of 170g/km. Three full-size seats provide passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model, while boot has capacity has been increased to 525 litres. The new BMW also receives Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist systems, as standard.

It's more or less business as usual in the new X4's interior, which features a logical, modern layout, quality plastics and plenty of leather trim.

A straight-six diesel will power the range-topping M40d, which will generate 326PS and 680Nm of torque.

OxyContin Maker to Stop Marketing Opioid Products to Physicians
Purdue Pharma denies allegations of complicity in the opioid epidemic and says it is committed to curbing rates of opioid abuse. This announcement is coming after widespread criticism of the ways drug-makers market addictive painkillers.

The full range is on sale now with prices starting at £42,900 for an xDrive20d.

This is the second generation of the X4 - a rival for the Mercedes GLC Coupe and Jaguar F-Pace - and, like its predecessor, it's based on the X3, but trades some of that car's practicality for coupe-like styling and a sharper drive. Optional safety features include active cruise control, which can bring the auto to a stop and pull away again in traffic, along with traffic-sign recognition and lane-departure warning systems.

BMW has packed lots of standard perks into the new X4 - standard bi-LED headlights, a 10.25-inch infotainment display with navigation, along with a wide array of safety and driving assistance systems: front collision warning, city collision mitigation and braking, pedestrian detection.

The X4 also has the latest in connectivity, thanks to BMW's ConnectedDrive services. The BMW plant in the USA state of SC is the "Home of BMW x models" for the BMW X models within the BMW Group's global production network. A SIM card comes as standard, which allows the use of BMW Teleservices in the event of an emergency - with an automatic prompt if a low-speed collision is detected.
