Product Overview

The facelifted BMW X4 M (F98) Competition is the high-performance variant of the facelifted BMW G02 X4 compact crossover. It is also the sloped-roof variant of the facelifted F97 X3 M unveiled at the same time.
Like the F97 X3 M, it features BMW's high-output S58 inline-6 turbocharged petrol engine paired to an 8-speed ZF 8HP automatic transmission, sending power to all wheels via the M xDrive AWD system with the driving dynamics of RWD.
As usually the case, the new X4 M Competition has a more aggressive exterior design compared to the base model. It comes with BMW M compound brakes and 21-inch staggered wheels as standard. Compared to the pre-facelift model, the facelifted X4 M has larger kidney grilles and a tweaked rear aprons and new paint finishes.
Inside, the interior has been revamped, with a free-standing 12.3" Control Display being the main user interface for the infotainment system. Modern driver assist techs are also available.

Sentiment Score 47%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The latest X4 M Competition is undeniably rapid and boasts grip and traction to rival some super-saloons. It's a strong technical update, with more performance and better tech on offer, plus bespoke M features for this halo model. However, it's still ultimately a compromised car, especially when it comes to ride comfort, while its X3 M alternative also offers more practicality.

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Powerful mid-range

Cons
  • Pricier than X3 M
