BMW X4 M40i owner’s review – My third BMW in a row

TopAuto reader Simone drives a 2019 BMW X4 M40i.

She made the switch to the X4 in August this year, after driving a 2014 BMW 2 Series for several years.

Before that, she drove a 2004 BMW 3 Series.

Simone loves her BMW and tells us what it’s like to live with the powerful SUV, below.

Which model do you own?

I have a 2019 BMW X4 M40i that recently ticked over 35,000km.

I bought it from my brother in August after originally planning on trading my 2014 BMW 220i for an X3.

However, after test driving a 2.0-litre version of the X3 I wasn’t completely satisfied, and the search for my next BMW continued.

My brother probably felt sorry for me and proceeded to offer me a family discount on his car, and I couldn’t say no.

What are your three favourite things about the X4?

The power – definitely the power. It makes every drive more fun than the last.

The handling is excellent, too. It is one of, if not the best-handling vehicles I’ve ever driven.

It makes you forget you’re driving an SUV being so nimble on the road, and it is surprisingly light for its size. This was also one of my colleague’s comments when they were in the passenger seat along for a ride.

Lastly, it must be the luxurious feel of the M40i.

Every inch of this car feels and looks premium and the features list ticks all the boxes, and then some.

Which three things do you like least about the X4?

How expensive it is going to be to replace the tyres. I’ve already started saving up for this day, but fear I still may not have enough when it arrives.

The start-stop system I’m not a big fan of, either. My previous car also had this feature and it is just something I can’t get used to, so it’s usually off.

I would also have loved the car to be a different colour, like silver or white.

I did not realize how difficult it would be to keep the dark blue paint looking clean, especially with all this rain we’ve been having lately.

What is it like to drive your X4 every day?

I feel very privileged.

Driving anywhere is comfortable and fun, and it makes me feel extremely safe on busy roads on my way to work.

Would you recommend your car to other people?

I will definitely recommend this car to everyone looking for a luxury, medium-sized SUV with great performance and sound.

The X4 M40i is bold, fast, reliable, and has every function you could want.
