2019 BMW X4 xDrive30i Review: Munich Mullet
For most people, the ideal crossover checks three important boxes: Space, comfort, and efficiency. Or at least, one of those three. But the new-for-2019 BMW X4, as with most crossover coupes, throws conventional crossover thinking out the window.
The standard SUV looks of the X3 get swapped for sleek fastback styling instead, the spacious boot disappears in place of a shrunken trunk, and in an effort to add a pinch of sportiness to the X4, BMW stiffens up the suspension. On paper, it sounds promising, but the end result is a mishmash of mediocrity.
