BMW X4 SUV-coupe revealed, India-bound

The exterior of the 2019 BMW X4 doesn't stray too far from the current model, but it is now bigger than before.

The BMW X4 will receive two new, more powerful engines when the redesigned compact crossover goes on sale in July in the U.S. While styling has generally remained evolutionary, the new X4 arrives with different dimensions, growing by 3 inches (76.2 millimeters) in length, 2.1 inches (53.3 mm) in wheelbase, and 1.4 inches (35.6 mm) in width. There have been steps forward in the voice-control system to allow more real-world questions, plus a gesture-control option, while the X4's optional head-up display is 70 percent larger and now is much clearer, with 400 x 800 pixel resolution. It also has a 50:50 weight distribution to optimize the handling.

The traditional BMW kidney grille is larger and has a new three-dimensional look.

After the 2012 lockout, preparing for a shot at a full season with the Wings, Mursak broke his collarbone. He has played for Slovenia in the World Junior Championships and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

The designers have also integrated LED head, tail and fog lights, and active air vents, and streamlined the shape to a slippery drag coefficient of 0.30. In profile, a prominent character line breaks up the bodyside surface and resolves at the rear with additional lines that emphasize the coupe-like rake to the rear greenhouse. The distinguishing feature is still the sloping coupe roofline, extending into a new rear-end design that will no doubt become a signature of BMW's next-generation coupes. The changes at the back are in sync with the front - the boot lid is sharper, taillights are sleeker and longer, and the bumper has been mildly updated too. While it was never available in the Indian market, the second-generation BMW X4 is expected to make its debut in the country later this year.

Despite its unusual design, the first-generation BMW X4 managed to do well on the global sales charts. A standard panoramic seat brings in more light and enhances the new five-seater's feeling of spaciousness.

There is an instrument cluster in the front and an infotainment display center as well.
