An updated version of the BMW X4 crossover was spotted on tests

Automobile publications have published photos from tests of the 2022 BMW X4 crossover. The prototype of the Bavarian novelty has camouflage on the front and rear, as well as a dent on the front passenger door.

A spotted copy of the updated BMW X4 crossover hid front and rear changes to its appearance. Judging by the damaged front passenger door door, the chic crossover was in a minor accident.

Note that this is not just an X4, as we tend to believe that this is nothing more than a “hotter” version of the new M Performance. The car wears the M40i suffix and has thicker and more angular exhaust tips than the younger models in this line. We can see the updated grille peeking through the camouflage at the front. The grille appears to have the same design as some other recent M Performance models, including the M135i hatchback, M235i Gran Coupe, and the M340i sedan / wagon.

Minor changes to the headlights and bumpers are also expected, but nothing special.

While we do not have images showing the interior of the new product, we do notice that the infotainment system is completely closed, which suggests some changes to the iDrive.

Since the debut of the X4 M40i, BMW has already updated the model with more power. Originally, the crossover went on sale with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine producing 355bhp, but in 2020 power has increased to 382bhp. Torque is a decent 500 Nm, fed to the xDrive system via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

We expect the updated X4 family to be introduced next year.

Not so long ago, we wrote about the race between Giulia Quadrifoglio, BMW M4 and Audi RS5. A video has appeared on YouTube showing the race between the Italian Giulia Quadrifoglio, as well as the German BMW M4 and Audi RS5. All three cars have roughly the same technical characteristics and prices.
