The new BMW X4 has officially touched down in South Africa, with the local range comprising three derivatives at launch.

While we brought you initial pricing back in July 2018 (soon after our international drive of the M40d variant, which is due to join the range next year), take note that these figures have since each been revised downwards by some R4 000.

The line-up kicks off with the xDrive20d, which employs a 2,0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine worth 140 kW and 400 N.m, and comes in at R846 542. The xDrive20i (with the Bavarian brand’s familiar 135 kW/290 N.m 2,3-litre turbo-four) is ever-so-slightly dearer at R850 337.

And the big daddy of the range? Well, the M40i will set you back R1 144 185, which buys you a six-cylinder inline petrol unit turbocharged to produce 265 kW and 500 N.m. That’s enough, says BMW, for a 0-100 km/h sprint in 4,8 seconds.

The M40d, meanwhile, is scheduled to arrive in the first quarter of 2019.

All models employ an eight-speed Steptronic transmission (with shift paddles) and xDrive all-wheel drive as standard. The M Performance derivatives furthermore come equipped with 20-inch light-alloy wheels, M Sport brakes and an M Sport differential.
