Emphasizing sport over utility, the X4 is a coupelike version of the previous-generation X3. It's agile, rides tautly, and has a beautifully trimmed cabin. Seating is a bit lower than in the X3, which instills a more sporty experience. Cargo and rear-seat space under the sloping roofline are considerably smaller than in the X3, making the X4 a less practical SUV.


We expect the 2022 X4 to have about average reliability when compared to other new cars. This prediction is based on BMW's brand history and the similar model X3.

Overall Reliability

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
