The 2020 BMW X4 M is similar to the X3 compact crossover in terms of mechanicals but the chopped roof reduces headroom and legroom for rear passengers. Also, the turbocharged six-cylinder produces more than 500 horses that is decent for an SUV of this class. The present X4 model comes with two turbocharged engines, one standard turbocharged four-cylinder and powerful optional inline -six, propelling 355 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. The X4 M, on the other hand dials more power output at 473 hp and 442 lb-ft. If its less to fulfill your thirst for power then you may add available Competition package that gets you 503 hp.

The engine is the main thing that distinguishes M part with the general X4 model. The X4 M gets the same 3.0-liter in-line six cylinder that is used in the X3 . The engine is mated to an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission and an M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The engine produces 480 horsepower and a peak torque of 600 Nm (442 lb-ft). The acceleration time goes 4.2 seconds for zero to 60 mph.

An array of interior improvements would make the X4 M handling better than before. The standard xDrive all-wheel-drive system keeps the power at the rear wheels, transmitting it further to the fronts whenever extra grip is needed. Just like other high-performance BMWs, the rear Active M Differential transmits power for more traction and performance. There are some major improvements in suspension components — including unique anti-roll bars — while a strut brace keeps the body rigid. Also, the adaptive dampers give the driver the option to switch between different driving modes such as comfort or sport. .

With the Competition package's M Sport exhaust system, we get an active exhaust system with quad tailpipes that bring some magnificent sound from the twin-turbo inline-six. The front fascia is slightly larger for better airflow, while the rear diffuser provides aggressive look from the rear end.

Talking about the interior, the X4 M Competition models get excellent M Sport seats while the normal models get it as option. There’s leather upholstery in colors like black and gray, along with red trim.
