BMW X4

The BMW X4 is based on the X3, and has more safety technology and an additional inch of legroom compared with its predecessor. But its coupelike profile sacrifices some utility and visibility compared with the X3. The base version is called the xDrive30i and features a 248-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine; the M40i is powered by a 382-hp turbo six-cylinder engine.

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.
