2022 BMW X4 M Competition

Pros: Nicely finished cabin; fine balance of ride comfort and handling; good fuel economy in 30i

Cons: Compromised cargo space and rear-seat headroom; some complicated infotainment controls

CG Says: The 2022 BMW X4 gets mildly revised styling and a larger control screen. The M40i gains a 48-mild hybrid system and the X4 M gets more torque, although horsepower remains the same. The X4 is a fastback-roofed version of BMW’s X3 compact SUV and was redesigned for 2019. The base xDrive 30i has a 248-horsepower turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, while the M40i has a 382-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder with a 48-volt mild hybrid system. The X4 M has a turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine that develops 473 hp or 503 hp with Competition Package. All engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic and all-wheel drive is standard. In addition to stronger engines, the M40i and M models get sport suspension and special trim inside and out. Available features include forward-collision warning and mitigation, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, blind-spot alert, active lane-keep assist, park assist, ventilated front seats, and panoramic sunroof. The X4’s swoopy, sloped-roofline body emphasizes style over the rear headroom and cargo space of the X3’s traditional wagon body. The X4’s slick styling may appeal to some buyers, but we prefer the X3’s superior cargo capacity, rear-seat passenger room, and lower sticker prices.
