The BMW X4 will be assembled in India, which should translate into aggressive pricing.

Speaking on the aesthetics of the second-gen BMW X4, Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, has said -

The second-generation BMW X4 brings together a distinctive, dynamic silhouette with a clear, pared-back use of forms.

The second-gen BMW X4 is 4,752 mm long, 1,918 mm wide, and 1,621 mm tall. Compared to the earlier generation, the model is 81 mm longer, 37 mm wider, and 3 mm lower. Its wheelbase, at 2,864 mm, is 54 mm longer. Highlights of the design include the sporty fastback silhouette, short overhangs, and hexagonal wheel arches.

Highlights of the equipment list include a 12-inch virtual instrument cluster, a full-colour head-up display with +70% higher projection area, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with gesture control, three-zone automatic climate control, and Vernasca leather upholstery.

Internationally, the X4 is available with seven engine variants. India, however, is likely to receive the xDrive20d model, which is propelled by the locally assembled 2.0-litre turbo-diesel oil-burner that outputs a maximum power of 190 hp at 4,000 rpm along with a peak torque of 400 Nm at 1,750-2,500 rpm. The motor comes mated to a ZF-sourced 8-speed automatic transmission. AWD is standard.

The second-gen BMW X4 has a drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.30, which is 10% lower than that of the earlier iteration (In picture - 2018 BMW X4 M40d at 2018 Geneva Motor Show).

The second generation BMW X4 will come to India via the CKD route, with the assembly taking place at the company's Chennai facility. The new model will lock horns with the Mercedes GLC Coupe and the Range Rover Evoque, and is expected to cost around INR 65 lakh (ex-showroom).
