BMW X4 bookings, expected price, launch date and more

BMW has also teased a new Black Shadow Edition of the X4 that will be available in limited numbers.

BMW has opened pre-bookings for the new X4 facelift in India. The booking can only be made via BWM India’s website, with the booking amount pegged at Rs 50,000. The BMW X4 facelift will go on sale in March and deliveries will take place on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The new X4 debuted globally in June 2021 with a comprehensive cosmetic makeover, along with new features and more focus on technology. All of these updates are expected on the India-spec model as well.

  • Prices to be announced sometime next month

BMW X4 facelift: exterior updates

The cosmetic updates on the X4 facelift make it look more in line with newer BMW SUVs, including the recently launched X3 facelift. Up front, the new X4 inevitably gets a larger kidney grille, new LED headlamps that are slimmer than before and a reworked front bumper with sharper creases and big air vents. At the rear, the tail-lights have also been refreshed and are now slimmer and more sculpted. The rear bumper has also been revised with sharper creases, new gloss black inserts and pronounced exhaust tips.

BMW X4 facelift: interior updates

The cabin of the X4 facelift also sees a notable update over the previous model. While the design stays relatively same, the new X4 gets a larger 12.35-inch free-standing touchscreen infotainment system, up from the 10.25-inch unit on the previous X4. It gets revised AC vents, new switchgear for the climate control, a revised console and a new digital instrument cluster as well. We will have more information on the exact equipment list closer to its launch.

BWM X4 facelift: Black Shadow Edition

BMW has also teased a new Black Shadow Edition of the X4 facelift that will be made available in India. This, however, will be limited in numbers and will likely be an M Sport variant. The teaser confirms that it will come finished in an all-black shade, with blacked-out wheels, exhaust tips and more. BMW has also meted out this Black Shadow treatment on other models such as the 2 Series and X7 in India.

BMW X4 facelift: engine and gearbox options

The previous iteration of the X4 was offered with three engine options in India – a 190hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel; a 265hp, 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel; and a 252hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol.

While we expect BMW to offer both petrol and diesel engines with the new X4, the exact configuration and specs are yet to be confirmed. Internationally, both the 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre petrol and diesel engines are available in different states of tune, although we expect the 2.0-litre engines to be the mainstay in India, just as they are on the new X3 facelift.

BMW could also launch petrol and diesel engines at different points of time, something the German carmaker has done with a lot of recent launches in India.

BMW X4 facelift: rivals and expected price

When launched, the new BMW X4 will rival the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe in our market. Apart from the Mercedes, there are no other direct rivals to the X4 in India. We expected the prices for the updated X4 to range from Rs 60 lakh-75 lakh (ex-showroom).
