BMW is aiming to strengthen its presence in the Indian luxury car market. Inspired by the good response from the buyers in 2017, BMW is aiming to improve its sales performance in coming years and in an attempt to do so, the brand is targeting to create a new segment every year. As part of that strategy, BMW will launch the second generation X4 in India sometime in 2019.
BMW X4 will come to India as a CKD unit and the company will locally assemble it here
It could be priced between Rs, 55 lakh and Rs. 60 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) upon arrival. While the first generation X4 was not launched in India, arrival of the X4 will certainly enhance the Bavarian auto giant’s strength here. The automaker is targeting to take on the Mercedes-Benz GLC with the X4 and we can expect to see localized production of this vehicle here. However, specific time of the launch is yet to be revealed. But, we hope to learn about it in coming days.
The BMW X4 is underpinned by the CLAR RWD architecture and it comes 50 kg lighter compared to the predecessor. Handling and performance of the car too have been improved significantly. Considering the fact that Indian buyers are showing more and more interest towards premium cars, BMW expects to see good sales performance with this model.
While the sharp design of the car will certainly catch attention of everyone, interior features and styling are meant for enhancing premiumness to next level. On the powertrain front, BMW X4 will be available in seven different engine options. However, it is not clear, which engine options will be available in the Indian market. For transmission duty, the car gets an 8-speed automatic gearbox and there is an AWD system as standard offering.
