With the BMW X4 M40i, BMW M GmbH once again demonstrates its years of
expertise in the construction of exclusive sporty automobiles. This automobile impresses
with an outstanding combination of unadulterated dynamics, comfort and everyday
M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine
The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine combines impressive performance with thrust that is maintained well into the high rev range, thus setting new standards in the vehicle segment of the BMW X4. The power unit with a forged steel crankshaft provides revving power that is typical for BMW M: Between 1,350 and 5,250 rpm, a maximum torque of 465 Nm is available. The 3.0-litre engine achieves its maximum output of 265 kW (360 hp) between 5,800 and 6,000 rpm. The BMW X4 M40i reaches 100 km/h from a standing start in just 4.9 seconds. This impressive performance is achieved with combined fuel consumption of 8.6 litres per 100 km and CO2 emissions of 199 g/km, demonstrating an exceptional balance of dynamics and efficiency – and once again highlighting the exceptional engineering know-how of BMW.
The specific exhaust system was optimised to ensure a charismatic, individually regulated sound and ideal exhaust back pressure. It has an intelligent valve control and, thanks to the Black Chrome tailpipe finisher on both sides, is recognisable in an instant.
Typical M Performance driving dynamics
Thanks to a wealth of adaptations, the BMW X4 M40i impresses with driving dynamics that only M Performance automobiles can offer. Comprehensive fine-tuning of the suspension elevates the lateral and longitudinal dynamic characteristics to a whole new level, thereby meeting the requirements of even the sportiest drivers. Many systems were adapted for the typical M Performance driving dynamics, including the rear-biased BMW xDrive as well as the electronically controlled damper system and variable sport steering.
The standard-feature 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission with gearshift paddles on the steering wheel enables both more comfortable and extremely sporty gearshifts as well as improved downshift spontaneity. The drive train is connected sportily and directly, which, together with standard-feature Launch Control, ensures lightning-quick starts. Conversely, large brake discs on the front axle and optimised brake pads on all wheels guarantee outstanding stopping power, even in the sportiest driving situations.
The M genes in the design of the BMW X4 M40i allow the vehicle to exude full-blown dynamics as soon as you set eyes on it. The sporty look is characterised by a number of individual and highly exclusive details. This is provided by the components of the standard-feature M Sport package, including specific adaptations of the front and rear bumper.
Even when viewed from a distance, the BMW X4 M40i stands out in a crowd, with the exclusive look of the 20" light alloy wheels Double-spoke style Bicolor making it instantly recognisable. Available in the 8.5 J x 20 (front) and 10 J x 20 (rear) format, these wheels have ultra-high-performance tyres. Special design elements in Ferric Grey in the air inlets of the wide front apron and the kidney grille slats add to the presence of the vehicle. Striking sporty exterior mirror caps, which are also available in Ferric Grey, are irresistible – even to the wind. Twin tailpipe finishers in Black Chrome add an additional touch of dynamics to the powerful rear of the vehicle.
Inside the BMW X4 M40i, numerous features help to create a sporty ambience. Top-quality materials and an M specific design with an eye for detail further increase driving pleasure. On the door sill finishers, the “X4 M40i” lettering catches the eye immediately. The decor trims, which are available in Aluminium and several other variants, boost the sporty-technical look. A further example is the electronic model designation under the rev counter. The M leather steering wheel is perfectly contoured for your hands, enabling the vehicle to be controlled with the greatest precision. And when cornering, the perfect ergonomics of the sport seats for driver and front passenger provide lateral stability and excellent comfort.
