BMW X3 and X4 get a bump in price for 2020
Better equipment for BMW’s X3 and X4 SUVs is offset by a slight price hike.
BMW has revised its X3 and X4 SUV range for 2020 with some minor equipment upgrades and a corresponding $1000 bump in price across the lineup.
Starting with the conventional X3 SUV wagon, the range opens with the entry-level sDrive20i (front-wheel drive) priced at $63,900 plus on-road costs, now equipped with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster which was previously reserved for higher-grade variants. There’s also 32gb of storage and online services available via the infotainment system. Apple CarPlay remains a subscription extra.
The X4 SUV ‘coupe’ xDrive20i (all-wheel drive) receives the same tech upgrades and is now priced at $77,900. Both entry-level variants remain powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol making 135kW and 290Nm via an eight-speed automatic.
The 2.0-litre diesel turbo xDrive20d starts at $67,900 plus on-road costs and produces a meatier 140kW and 400Nm. Both 20i and 20d come with 19-inch alloys, leather interior, head up display, digital instrument cluster, wireless phone charging, sat nav, automatic LED headlights, auto wipers, AEB, lane keeping assist, reversing camera and front and rear parking sensors.
The X3 xDrive30i ($73,900) and X4 xDrive30i ($84,900) are equipped with the same 2.0-litre turbo petrol producing a more powerful 185kW and 350Nm. A step above is the X3 xDrive30d ($83,900), which has a straight-six diesel turbo developing 195kW and 620Nm.
At the top of the tree is the M40i, available in both X3 ($100,900) and X4 ($110,900) body styles and equipped with a straight-six petrol turbo motor producing 285kW and 500Nm. That model brings 21-inch alloys, M Performance tuned dampers and suspension, M differential, M brakes and plenty of added creature comforts inside.
