Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 BMW X4 offers powerful engine performance, lithe handling, and an upscale cabin with user-friendly features, but it trails the competition in terms of interior space. This luxury compact SUV does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn’t been fully crash tested.

Pros
Enjoyable ride and handling
Potent turbocharged engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Handsome interior

Cons
Snug rear headroom
Below-average cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

Fresh off its 2019 redesign, the X4 carries over into 2020 with minimal changes. The biggest news is that the twin-turbo six-cylinder of the M40i gets a serious boost in power, from 355 to 382. Base models add BMW's Comfort Access system as standard equipment. This system allows you to access the vehicle without removing the key fob from your pocket.

Pros
Snazzy exterior design,
good fuel economy,
entertaining driving dynamics from both trim levels.

Cons
Stingy cargo capacity relative to that of rival crossovers,
slim selection of standard driver-assistance features,
Android Auto is conspicuously absent.

Cons
Sloping roofline compromises rear headroom and cargo space
Android Auto is not available
