2022 BMW X4 facelift: design
Seeing as the X4 is an SUV Coupe derivative of the X3 facelift, it features many of the same styling changes on the outside, giving it a refreshed overall look. Among the changes are larger kidney grilles, slimmer LED headlight, new bumpers at the front and rear as well as a sleeker and more sculpted set of tail-lights.
BMW is also offering the new X4 in the Black Shadow Edition guise, which brings with it an all-black paint, and gloss accents on the grille, wing mirrors, exhaust pipe and wheels in the same shade. This is in the same vein as the Black shadow editions of the 2 Series and X7.

On the inside, the cabin features a largely similar layout to the pre-facelift model. However, there are a few significant changes, such as the larger 12.35-inch, free-standing touchscreen infotainment system (up from the older model’s 10.25-inch unit), along with re-shaped central AC vents and updated switchgear.
There are plenty of features on offer as well, as the fully kitted X4 M Sport gets a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a Harman Kardon surround sound system, three-zone automatic climate control, a panoramic sunroof, hands-free parking, 360-degree cameras, adaptive suspension and cruise control.
