What Do We Enjoy About the 2017 BMW X4?


Has your new-car search ultimately led you to the compact luxury crossover class? Well, if so, we here at BMW of Columbia think you may well meet your match in ours, the 2017 X4.


Don't buy it? Think we're merely expressing our inherent bias?


Well, fortunately, we've got the facts to back our opinion -- and we'd like to present them to you in today's post.


While we've no doubt the X4's entry-level engine -- a 240-horsepower turbo-four -- will meet the needs of most motorists, others still will want something with a bit more muscle.


And that's right where the top-tier trim -- the M40i -- enters the equation.


Equipped with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, the M40i produces a prolific 360 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque. Standard fare also includes a sprightly eight-speed automatic transmission and the xDrive all-wheel system.


Likewise, the M40i can do the 0-to-60 mph dash with absolute aplomb, getting there in only 4.7 seconds.


If you'd like to meet this modern marvel "in the metal," or wish to put one through its paces on the open road, we encourage you to pay us a visit at our Columbia, SC location. Upon your stopover, we'll be sure to set you up with a test drive in the X4, or any other BMW model that's made your must-see list.
