BMW launches the new BMW X4 M40i
October 14, 2015: BMW recently introduced the new 2016 BMW X4 M40i in the Sports Activity Coupe segment (SAC), which will be available at dealers starting February 2016.
Exclusive Ferric Gray metallic accents on the front of the vehicle and side mirrors, as well as the exclusive 20-inch M light-alloy double-spoke wheels with optional Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and the sport exhaust system with valve control and Black Chrome tailpipes on both sides emphasize the unique character of the new BMW X4 M40i.
A newly developed M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6 cylinder gasoline engine celebrates its world premiere in the new BMW X4 M40i. This engine delivers 355 hp at between 5,800 and 6,000 rpm from its three-liter displacement, providing a maximum torque of 343 lb-ft. With this high-performance engine and the advanced M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology, the BMW X4 M40i delivers best-in-class acceleration, running the sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4.7 seconds.
Some radical technical changes include, an intelligent valve control, a back pressure-optimized double-flow exhaust system fitted beneath the floor of the vehicle, as well as resonator tuning specific to M Performance. The result is a powerful sound, individually determined by the driver depending on driving mode and driving situation, perfectly emphasizing the car's sporty character acoustically.
In view of the performance of the new BMW X4 M40i, the braking system also had to be upgraded. The increased size of the brake discs on the front axle and the performance-oriented brake pads on all four wheels ensure that the new BMW X4 M40i can be outstandingly decelerated, in even the sportiest of driving conditions.
Seven paint colors are available for the new BMW X4 M40i (of which six are available with M Sport on other X4 models), Long Beach Blue metallic joins the offering as an exclusive color for the X4 M40i. Six Nevada Leather upholstery colors can be selected for the interior, as well as four different interior trim options.
