World Debut for BMW X4 at the New York Auto Show

It’s finally here, in the metal! The new BMW X4 showed up at New York yesterday and presented the way the Germans see the future of Sport Activity Coupes after teasing us with some mouth-watering shots earlier this year.

The 2015 Bimmer was introduced in its top-spec version, the xDrive35i fitted with everything you could possibly wish for. First of all, it has the N55 3-liter turbocharged petrol engine under the bonnet making 306 HP and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque under the bonnet, one of the sweetest units BMW ever made.

With this kind of power, the X4 prepares to challenge rivals such as the Porsche Macan and, thanks to its price tag and brilliant gearbox, it might very well be successful.

The body shows us exactly how the M Sport line looks like, with massive air intakes at the front and a more stylish back. Open the door and M door sills welcome you as well as an M steering wheel and every possible optional feature in the catalog that you can check out on the live configurator that went online yesterday.

We also checked the BMW USA website just minutes ago and found out that in the US, an X4 configured as you see here will set you back $66,450 which is quite a lot, considering the price starts at $48,000.

However, you might want this car nonetheless, especially if you hear about its performance figures that are more than impressive for an SUV: 0-60 in 5.2 seconds, top speed of 130 mph (210 km/h) and an average fuel consumption of 28.3 mpg (8.3 l/100 km).
