BMW X4 xDrive35i X Line Review

Introduction, Exterior

Let me say that when I drove the current X3, I was blown away. Not only did it haul a decent amount, its dynamic abilities are far beyond what its body type and dimensions suggest. For the most part, it felt like a hopped up 3-series with the same dynamic prowess as one would expect of BMW’s best selling sedan but in a mid-size SUV.

The marketing boys in Munich must’ve seen its potential enough to apply the X6 formula to it. Applying a flamboyant roofline and calling it a Sport Activity Vehicle. In hopes that it would generate the same success as the X6 did.



The current X3 looks the part of a proper brutish mid-sized SUV that mixes equal parts elegance and broad shouldered toughness. But what the design chaps hoped for the X4 is the elegance of a classic coupe.

No doubt the X4 bears more than a passing resemblance to the X6 but then again, the X6 wasn’t particularly pretty either. So we can’t quite decide if the X4 looks good or not. But what we do know is that BMW seems to have just plonked a new roof on the X3 and gave it a new badge.

Take the roof away and it looks nearly identical to the X3 save for the redesigned taillights.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
