5 POWERFUL FACTS:
Unique design highlights underpin the performance attributes of the BMW X4 M40i and BMW X4 M40d both inside and outside. Included among them on the exterior are the M kidney grille with M logo and double slats in black high-gloss.
EFFICIENT AND POWERFUL.
The BMW X4 M40i is powered by a three-litre inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. With an output of 260 kW (360 hp) and a maximum torque of 500 Nm, it has a sporty driving performance. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds. The BMW X4 M40d comes with a 6-cylinder diesel engine with an output of 250 kW (340 hp) and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. It also accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds.
500 Nm of torque is developed by the M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine of the BMW X4 M40i.
The BMW X4 M40i in detail.
M Sport suspension.
The M Sport suspension is notable for a more dynamic suspension with tighter damper settings. It also features a moderately higher spring constant and harder stabilisers. Combined together, they result in an even more direct suspension design, which enables a distinctly sporty driving style.
Variable sport steering.
The variable sport steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response and ensures that less physical effort is required to turn the wheel. It reacts to the angle of the steering wheel with varying steering ratios. This improves handling when driving more dynamically and reduces the effort needed to steer when parking and turning.
M sport differential.
The M sport differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend, when taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.
8-speed Steptronic sport transmission.
The 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission offers incredibly sporty gear changes. Whether automatic or manual using the selector lever or gearshift paddles – for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving. In SPORT mode and with the selector lever in the left-hand S/M position, the gear shifts are configured for the maximum performance.
M Sport brake.
The M Sport brake has four-piston fixed calipers at the front and single-piston floating calipers at the rear in Blue metallic (optionally in Red metallic) with the M logo is internally ventilated and features larger brake discs to ensure an outstanding braking performance. Adapted to the vehicle's very high dynamic potential, it also allows an exceptional athletic driving style and excellent braking on wet surfaces.
