The BMW X4 M40i has finally arrived to the US at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and our team was there to catch its debut and provide live photos.

Sharing the BMW stand in Detroit with the all-new M2, the sporty SUV has a 3.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine under the hood, good for 360 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque. These figures are enough for a strong 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) sprint in only 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).

Showcased in Detroit is a white example, featuring a restyled front bumper with large air intakes, side mirrors finished in Ferric Grey, new rear diffuser, and 20-inch M light-alloy double-spoke wheels. Also notable are the sports exhaust system with valve control and Chrome Black tailpipes on both sides of the rear bumper, the sports suspension, and the tweaked xDrive all-wheel drive system.

Inside the cabin you will find a sports atmosphere, highlighted by M leather steering wheel, M gear shift lever, sports seats, and door sills with X4 M40i lettering.

We already have official prices for the model in Germany, where it will cost $70,762 (€65,000), making it $6,750 (€6,200) more expensive than the previous xDrive35i variant. The high-performance SUV will be available in the US from February 2016, starting at $57,800 (€53,100) plus destination & handling.
