Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - MOTORING -

PRICE Up by $3000 on base model 20i thanks to ex­tra kit and tops out at $109,900 for the M40i

TECH­NOL­OGY A head-up dis­play is now stan­dard across the range. Ac­tive safety suite now in­cludes traf­fic sign recog­ni­tion.

PER­FOR­MANCE The mid-spec diesel has been dropped, leav­ing the 30i petrol with marginally more power but less torque than the 35i it re­places. The M40i is then se­ri­ously quick.

DRIV­ING As with its pre­de­ces­sor, the ride is a touch too firm around town but this one han­dles a touch bet­ter.

DE­SIGN Big­ger in ev­ery di­men­sion but height, the X4 now has the vol­ume to go with its volup­tuous looks.
