Why Lease A BMW X4?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
More rakish than an X3, the X4 loses out on some practicality when it comes to passenger space. The sloping roofline intrudes on the amount of rear headroom, so taller passengers will be better suited to the X3 or either the Audi Q5 or the Mercedes-Benz GLC. There is certainly enough room for 4 people, though; a 5th person can be squeezed into the central rear seat, but it’s not the most commodious.
Despite its high-riding coupe looks, the BMW X4 does enjoy 525 litres of luggage space with the rear seats upright. That’s more than the similarly styled Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupé and the Audi Q5 Sportback, while the more upright Alfa Romeo Stelvio shares the same volume as the X4. When the rear seats are folded down, the X4’s cargo capacity increases to 1430 litres, 170 less than the X3, which also carries more with the seats up.
Predominantly powered by a choice of 4- and 6-cylinder diesel engines with mild-hybrid technology, even the most powerful diesel BMW X4 is an efficient family car. The X4 diesels offer around 47mpg economy, while the most powerful 3.0-litre petrol-engined version musters 31.7mpg combined.
The BMW X4 Vs Competitors
BMW often finishes ahead of Audi and Mercedes in reliability surveys, but the X3 on which the X4 is based doesn’t have a sparkling dependability record. However, drivers’ positive comments appear to give little to worry about. BMW offers a 3-year unlimited mileage warranty, which includes BMW Emergency Service for those unforeseen events.
The BMW X4 has 525 litres of rear luggage space with the seats in their upright position. Fold them down and this increases to 1430 litres. The Audi Q5 has slightly more as a normal SUV but slightly less as a Sportback, while the Alfa Romeo Stelvio matches the X4 on seats-up capacity. The Mercedes-Benz GLC has more than the BMW in standard SUV guise, but less in GLC Coupe form.
BMW offers a broad family of models if you’re looking to lease an X4. Sport props up the range and gives you a high level of basic equipment, while M Sport and M Sport X offer a sporty style. M40i/d versions are focused on performance, but not as much as the M Competition, which shares the same 510hp twin-turbo engine as the M3 Competition.
Yes, which is handy, given that the X4 is an SUV. All X4s have BMW’s front and rear Park Distance Control, as well as a rear-view camera and a parking assistance system for parallel and lateral parking spaces. An optional Parking Assistant Plus package gives you a surround view of the car so you can see exactly what’s behind, in front and to the sides of the vehicle.
A flat boot floor and 40/20/40 split rear seats lends the X4 a practical luggage area. The rear seats fold flat, too, for added versatility, and a smattering of storage compartments in the doors, the centre console and the central armrest between the driver and front passenger provide lots of storage for all sorts of odds and ends.
The Sports Activity Vehicle trend is a popular one, and the X4 is an established player in the market. Its wide range of trims and engines cater for every driver, and make the X4 an attractive leasing deal proposition. Add in a high level of equipment, decent economy and quality, and you can see why the BMW has such appeal.
