The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW X4 drops the off-roading, cargo-carrying pretense, and goes for what some BMW owners really want: attention. For active families who need to tow a boat or occasionally head off-pavement–but don't need a third row–the 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML is an excellence vehicle choice.
