Completely redesigned for 2019.Revised styling.New standard features.BMW's redesigned 2019 X4 is a more sporting and stylish alternative to the traditional luxury crossover. It's related to the X3 SUV but has a sleeker, more coupelike profile. It's also a bit wider, longer and shorter in height than the X3, signaling its mission from the moment you lay eyes on it.

Easy to personalize thanks to a long list of standard and optional features
Impressive handling for an SUV

Rear headroom is a bit tight
The sloping roofline compromises cargo space
