2020 BMW X4 vs. Its Competition

2020 BMW X4
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The BMW X4 is a shapely missile aimed at other stylish crossovers such as the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class Coupe and Porsche Macan.

It’s a similar performer to both, although the Macan may outgun the BMW in top trims.

The Audi Q5 offers a performance variant—the SQ5—although its hardly as daring.

The Evoque is a stylish crossover that’s relatively new, although it doesn’t have the same performance.

The BMW X3 is related to the X4 and is far more practical with similar powertrains.

We suggest trying that first.
