The upcoming 2022 BMW X4 SUV has been spied for the first time. Spied prototype was wearing a solid amount of camouflage so most of the updates are visible at first glance. It seems like we are looking at another mid-cycle facelift. That includes a couple of exterior modifications, mostly on the front fascia. Moreover, the interior should also get all sort of updates.
Still, interior details are not available yet. As for the performances, this SUV should offer the same three powertrain options as its predecessor. The price will slightly increase and the sales will begin at some point in the second half of 2021.
2022 BMW X4 Facelift
The all-new 2022 BMW X4 will remain a compact SUV that slots between larger X5 and smaller X3 models. Design language is recognizable, especially the front fascia. Whatsoever, it is the front section that will get the upgrades. The layout will remain but spy shots are showing new grille design and reshaped headlights.
The rear section only shows new exhausts, while the taillights are looking the same. New X4 SUV will remain intact in terms of shape and dimensions. We are hoping to see more upgrades, as some exterior parts are still perfectly camouflaged.
As we said, the interior upgrades are not visible on the spy photos. However, new 2022 BMW X4 will surely introduce a couple of updates. For a start, the compact SUV should arrive with more upright materials and larger standard touchscreen. Most likely, we are talking about new 10.25-inch display. With more modern amenities and more high-quality materials, the level of comfort will be even better.
The base xDriver30i version will gain more standard equipment, including panoramic sunroof and automatic climate controls. A faux-leather upholstery is also available, along with amenities such as rain-sensing windshield wipers and 10-way power-adjustable front seats. If you want latest driver-assistance aids or larger display, those features are optional. On the other hand, the same amenities will be offered as standard in the upper trim levels.
Three Powertrain Options
At this point, no one knows what BMW plans to do with X4 SUV and its engine lineup. The most likely outcome for the 2022 BMW X4 is to offer the same three powertrain options as its predecessor. That means a 2.0-liter with 248 horsepower should remain standard engine. Second engine is a larger 3.0-liter that is capable of producing 382 horses.
If you want the most powerful output, X4 M and X4 M Competition models are offering a potent 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine. This powertrain delivers up to 475 horsepower and 503 horsepower. No matter which engine you opt for, an eight-speed automatic transmission is offered as standard.
2022 BMW X4 Release Date and Price
The production of new 2022 BMW X4 started in South Carolina and the sales should begin in the second half of 2021. As for the price, the arriving SUV will cost around $50,000. On the other hand, sporty X4 M variant will start at almost $75,000.
