Used BMW X4 for sale
BMW first introduced the X4 back in 2014, complementing its every-growing X Series SUV portfolio even further. Below, we are taking a look at the second generation, which was available from 2018, receiving a facelift in 2021.
With SUV popularity showing no signs of slowing, the X4 entered the BMW X Series range offering a more sleek and alternative bodystyle to many other SUV offerings, thanks to its coupé-like lines.
The X4 is still very much a family SUV that sits pretty much in the middle of the X Series range. As a used purchase, the X4 offers:
- Unique coupé looks
- BMW badge kudos
- Car-liked dynamics and feel
- Lots of space and practicality
- A strong choice of models/engines

Engines and Driving Experience
Petrol and diesel engine choices are available in the BMW X4 range; a sole petrol, and multiple diesel variants.
Engine choice includes:
- xDrive 2.0-litre diesel (badged 20d) with 190bhp
- xDrive 3.0-litre diesel (badged 30d) with 286bhp or (badged M40d) 340bhp
The entry-level 2.0-litre petrol will return just under 40mpg, whilst the 2.0-litre diesel offers more economy, returning around the 50mpg mark. For those wanting added thrills, the M40d gets the M Performance treatment, meaning high-power whilst still keeping comfort, economy and a degree of understated class.
The M40d model can go from 0 to 62mph in just 4.9 seconds. The 2.0-litre diesel takes 7.9 seconds, ensuring the X4 of any guise will not feel slow. The X4 is also slightly firmer than the BMW X3 in which it is based upon. In essence, the X4 is a sportier and sleeker BMW X3.
Practicality and Running Costs
As we mentioned previously, the X4 is very similar to a BMW X3. It acts as a unique, style-conscious alternative to its sibling, swapping a bit of practicality for a sleeker coupé-like body and a tad more athleticism.
It's still a great alternative family SUV, with space for four adults, although those over six-foot may be touching the roofline in the rear depending on their posture, but will be no problem for kids or adults on short journeys.
As for boot space, a large 525 litres is offered, increasing to 1,430 litres with the rear seats folded flat. For comparison, the X3 has 550 litres of regular boot space, and 1,600 litres with the seats folded flat. Therefore, it's a slight decrease on its more practical sibling, but it's not drastic.
Running costs are not exactly cheap as expected on an SUV of this size, especially with the M Performance version. Servicing can be carried out at any Evans Halshaw, or Stratstone BMW for more specialist care.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Step inside the BMW X4 and it's very much text book BMW, offering a high-quality ambience with a high-level of fit and finish.
Pre-facelift cars feature analogue dials with digital effect details. These still look great today and work well with the crisp central infotainment system, which is easy to use and features smart, clear graphics.
Facelifted 2021 cars get fully-digital dials, with updated infotainment style and features, falling in-line with the rest of the interior enhancements of the new BMW range. No matter which X4 you choose, technology includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB radio, sat nav, LED headlights, Bluetooth and Harman Kardon (available as an upgrade).
Safety is also excellent, with the X4 being awarded the full five-star Euro NCAP score. This is thanks to the features highlighted below appearing in the range:
- Stability control
- Cruise control
- Automatic parking system
- Acoustic parking sensors
- Tyre pressure monitoring
- Blindspot warning system
- Automatic emergency braking
- Cross-traffic warning
Is the BMW X4 right for me?
If you are after a family SUV with an extra helping of style and uniqueness, then the BMW X4 shouldn't be overlooked.
Of course, if you are after that little bit more practicality, and more understated looks then you should probably consider the BMW X3, as it is very similar to the X4.
Mercedes-Benz do a similar SUV with a swooping bodystyle too, in the form of the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé. It promises equally unique style, but is arguably less dynamic than the X4.
The Audi Q5 Sportback should also be considered, due to its coupé-like body also. It features a beautifully crafted interior and is perhaps the best looking out of the trio of coupé-like SUVs.
