2022 BMW X4 vs. Its Competition

2022 BMW X4
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

If you’re set on the sloping “coupe” roofline, have a look at the Mercedes GLC Coupe, which largely matches the X4’s virtues in a more evocative shape.

The Audi Q5—especially in SQ5 guise—is a thrill machine, though a new version is on the way.

Don’t cross off the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, even though its conventional SUV shape may not appeal.

It’s far from refined, but it’s a joy to drive—especially in Ferrari-lite Quadrifoglio guise.

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque essentially invented the small crossover coupe segment, perhaps by accident, and it remains a compelling choice.

Definitely take a good look at the X3 parked across the dealer’s showroom.

It’s the same SUV right up until the cargo and rear-seat areas, and it’ll save you a good deal of money.
