BMW India will soon launch the X4 in India. It was scheduled to be launched in February but new reports suggest that the launch date has been deferred. There is no information on the new launch date of the car. It is an all-new SUV-Coupe that will be assembled in BMW’s Chennai plant. This is the second generation of BMW X4 that was updated globally last year but is the first time of the vehicle being launched in the Indian market.
The all-new BMW X4 has been spotted without any camouflage on a video. The X4 will take on the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Coupe in the Indian market but it will take on the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Audi Q5 in India. The car will be priced at around Rs. 60-65 lakhs, making it competitively priced.
The all-new BMW X4 is based on an all-new platform, which is known as CLAR. It is an all-new architecture that was introduced in the all-new BMW 7-Series. The CLAR platform is now available with many BMW models. The all-new platform is much lighter and has resulted in a 50 Kg reduction in weight of the all-new X4.
Overall, the dimensions have increased by a great deal. The all-new X4 has become 81 mm longer and 37 mm wider than the first-generation X4. The wheelbase has also increased by 54mm and it now stands at 2,864 mm. BMW says that there is 27 mm of additional legroom in the rear seats. The all-new X4 has also gained 25 litres of boot space and the total boot space now measures at 525 litres.
The engine details of the all-new BMW X4 have not been revealed. However, it is expected to get a diesel engine. The 2.0-litre engine is most likely to power the all-new X4 in the Indian market. It is available in two different engine tuning internationally. There is a 187 Bhp version and 228 Bhp version but it is not clear which one would be launched in the Indian market. It will get an 8-speed automatic transmission and BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system too.
The BMW X4 is the coupe version of the BMW X3. The design of the BMW X4 makes it one of the best aerodynamically designed car in the market. It gets a class-leading drag coefficient of 0.30 Cd. The swooping roofline of the BMW X4 makes it highlighted in the traffic. It gets the signature BMW kidney grille in a 3D look. The car also gets horizontal foglamps integrated to the outer air-intakes and is designed very classily.
