PROS
Multiple available powertrains make each model distinct
Interior is quiet, upscale and roomy
Abundant list of standard safety, tech and luxury features
AMG variants are seriously quick

CONS
Not many places to store small personal items
Punishing ride on AMG models, with little benefit to handling
Ride quality with the standard suspension isn't as comfy as we expect
Base V6's acceleration is merely adequate

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.

Pros
Both available engines are smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient
Easy to personalize thanks to a long list of standard and optional features
Impressive handling for an SUV

Cons
Rear headroom is a bit tight
The sloping roofline compromises cargo space
Android Auto is not available
Pricey when fully optioned
