2020 BMW X4 Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.5

The 2020 BMW X4 has an upscale interior with quality materials and crisp design. BMW’s iDrive infotainment system comes standard, and it’s quite easy to use. The X4’s seats are comfortable, but rear-seat headroom is just OK. Cargo space is below-average for the luxury compact SUV class.

  • "Clean modernity is the name of the game within the X4's premium cabin. The center stack looks a bit like the shield of a superhero, and it sits beneath a stylish floating touchscreen." -- Car and Driver
  • "Inside, the X4's cabin looks like it was pulled straight out of the X3, with only a few accommodations made for the sloping roof. Considering how cheap the first-gen X4's interior felt, that's a good thing. BMW used significantly nicer materials this time around that, when paired with the cabin's more modern design, make the X4 feel much more luxurious." -- Motor Trend (2019)
  • "On the plus side, the seats are supportive and adjustable with good thigh support and side bolstering. Besides the gesture control mishaps, the interior is a pleasant place to be." -- Autoweek (2019)

Seating

The BMW X4 has five seats. The front seats are nicely cushioned, and they remain comfortable, even on longer outings. There’s enough head- and legroom up front for taller occupants as well. The rear seats are also comfy, but the low roofline makes this area less than ideal for adults. Kids and younger teens should find more than enough rear headroom.

Synthetic leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats are standard. Leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

For securing child safety seats, the X4 has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats.

  • "On the plus side, the seats are supportive and adjustable with good thigh support and side bolstering." -- Autoweek (2019)
  • "Considering the X4's coupe-like roofline, the designers also deserve credit for giving rear passengers more room than you'd expect. There's one more much-appreciated inch of legroom than before and enough headroom to accommodate most passengers." -- Motor Trend (2019)
  • For rear passengers, there's an extra inch of legroom over the old model – a welcome addition, even if the sloping roof cuts off headroom." -- New York Daily News (2019)

Interior Features                           

The BMW X4 comes standard with BMW’s iDrive infotainment system and includes a 10.2-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, navigation, a digital gauge cluster, HD Radio, a 12-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, two USB ports, keyless entry, push-button start, automatic climate control, and a panoramic moonroof.

This iDrive infotainment system is user-friendly. The touch screen is easy to see, and it responds quickly to inputs. The menu structure is also straightforward. You can control the system using a touchpad and knob on the center console or via the dashboard and steering-wheel buttons. These redundant controls can be helpful when you’re driving.

Available tech features include satellite radio, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, a gesture control system, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and wireless device charging.

Standard safety features include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking.

  • "iDrive is a good way to control everything and an easier system to learn than most. There are also redundant buttons for things like climate control and heated seats. The drive mode and traction control buttons are down by the slap stick shifter." -- Autoweek (2019)
  • "Also like the X3, the X4 uses BMW's latest iDrive 6 infotainment system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen in the center stack. This infotainment pack offers navigation, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, voice recognition and BMW's weird-but-nifty gesture controls for adjusting volume and to accept or reject phone calls. Working through iDrive's various menus is intuitive with the system quickly flipping between screens, while the navigation system boasts nice map imagery and directs me to all route waypoints without any hiccups." -- CNET (2019)
  • "The central iDrive control screen is the same as in the X3, too: responsive, intuitive, and graphically modern." -- Car and Driver (2019)

Cargo

The BMW X4 has 18.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind its rear seats and 50.5 cubic feet with these seats folded down. Most competitors in the luxury compact SUV class provide more cargo room. A power liftgate is standard.

  • Relative to the X3, the X4 provides less cargo space; it's a better fit for singles and couples than it is for those facing the hauling responsibilities that can come with parenthood." -- Car and Driver
  • Rear passengers enjoy an extra inch of legroom compared to the old X4, there's 18.5 cubic-feet of cargo space in the hatch, or 50.5 with the rear seats folded flat. That's serviceable space, but substantially less than the X3's 28.7/62.7 measurements." -- CNET (2019)
