BMW Group Australia has announced the launch of a new flagship model for its BMW X4 range, the xDrive35d, arriving on showroom floors this month.
Priced from $89,900*, the latest addition to the BMW X4 range delivers increased levels of performance and specification, replicating the breadth of equipment in its petrol fuelled alternative.
The X4 xDrive35d is powered by a 3.0 litre, six cylinder engine, with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, adding significant output over the xDrive30d it replaces within the brand’s model line-up, while retaining its miserly levels of fuel economy.
Generating 230kW and 630Nm of torque, increases of 40kW and 70Nm respectively over the outgoing xDrive30d, the BMW X4 xDrive35d charges from 0-100km/h in 5.2 seconds, while fuel consumption measures at six litres per 100 kilometres.
BMW Group Australia Head of Product and Market Planning, Shawn Ticehurst, said the xDrive35d will assume status as the flagship model in the X4 range.
“With substantial increases in performance and specification, the BMW X4 xDrive35d is a welcome addition to the brand’s model line-up,” Ticehurst said.
“Since its launch in 2014, the X4 has enjoyed great success, confirming the strength of our X range of sports activity vehicles, which was recently bolstered by the arrival of the new BMW X1.”
Sharing the same extensive list of standard equipment as the xDrive35i, the xDrive35d is equipped with an eight-speed sport automatic transmission with Steptronic, Dynamic Damper Control, 20-inch M light alloy wheels and a full suite of driver assistance features.
These include cruise control with braking function, front and rear Park Distance Control, Rear View Camera and Surround View, with 360 degree visibility, providing optimum assistance for parking and manoeuvring in confined spaces.
Receiving the M Sport package as standard, the xDrive35d is equipped with M Aerodynamics package, M leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles and upholstery in Nevada leather.
Comfort access system, including keyless vehicle access and contactless tailgate operation is also included with base specification, in addition to ConnectedDrive Freedom, which consists of ConnectedDrive Services, Remote Services, Real Time Traffic Information and Concierge Services.
The entire cache of ConnectedDrive features is completed by Intelligent Emergency Call, Teleservices and Real Time Traffic Information, while DAB+ Digital Radio and Harman/ Kardon Surround Sound system, with 16 loud speakers, headline the entertainment offerings.
All maintenance requirements for the BMW X4 range are controlled by the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system.
With CBS, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, including mileage, time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven.
Based on the information captured, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due.
Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.
