More about the BMW X4
The Servotronic, the variable sport steering, creates a direct and agile steering response; this then ensures a smoother turning of the wheel and improves handling when driving more dynamically. Parking the X4 has never been easier. The 8-speed Steptronic Sport Transmission is also a new addition to the X4; it offers an incredible sports gear change—both automatic and manual use the selector lever or gearshift paddles for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving.
With modern technology rapidly changing, BMW was ahead of the game, creating multiple in-car technologies to make the everyday drive an experience you won't forget.
The Intelligent Personal Assistant allows the driver to communicate with your vehicle using naturally spoken voice commands; it will enable the driver to operate numerous vehicle functions. It's also on hand to explain topics about your vehicle and help you gain a better understanding of the X4.
The Driving Assistant Professional is ideal for critical or monotonous traffic situations; the system provides enhanced comfort while increasing safety levels. On top of the standard driving assistant features include a Steering and Lane Control Assistant with extended functions, Emergency Stop Assistant and Lane Keeping Assist with active side collision protection.
What's my Towing Capacity?
The BMW X4 has a generous towing capacity of around 2600KG; this gives the driver ample options of what they can hitch up to their towbar. Anything from a small trailer to a large caravan is possible when towing with the BMW X4; however, you should always check your VIN plate for an accurate reading before towing any equipment.
Which Towbar is best for my BMW X4?
Three different types of towbars are available for the BMW X4: the fixed flange towbar, the fixed swan neck towbar, and the detachable swan neck towbar.
The fixed flange towbar is a permanent style of towbar; its short and chunky design allows for a more compact style. The flange style is the only style of towbar that can be used with all styles of cycle carriers, as it is fitted with a plate that allows for all bolt-on accessories. If your X4 is fitted with rear sensors, this can cause a disturbance when in reverse, meaning the sensors wouldn't be able to warn drivers when there was an obstacle. If you tow an ALKO stabiliser, an ALKO tow ball would need to be purchased before towing.
The fixed swan neck towbar is the other style of permanent towbar; this style is much thinner and is popular due to its aesthetic. The fixed swan neck towbar is an excellent choice for those with rear parking sensors, as there is much more clearance between sensors and the towbar neck. Although there is still a chance, this could cause interference. The fixed swan neck is compatible with all clamp-on style cycle carriers, trailers and caravans. The fixed swan neck is also ALKO compatible, meaning there would be no need to purchase an ALKO tow ball when towing with an ALKO stabiliser.
The detachable swan neck towbar is the only towbar that can be removed when towing has been completed. Using a twist and push method, the towbar neck can be easily removed from its housing, leaving the towbar looking practically invisible. The electric socket will also flip up underneath the bumper to provide a tidy appearance. The detachable swan neck is compatible with all clamp-on styles of cycle carriers, trailers and caravans. The detachable swan neck is also ALKO compatible, so it does not need an ALKO tow ball to be able to tow any ALKO stabilisers.
Will it need a bumper cut?
When fitting a towbar to the BMW X4, there is no need to make any modifications to the vehicle's chassis or bumper; however, the bumper does need to be removed during the installation. If you're BMW X4 has been modified in any way or is not the standard bumper model, our towbar engineer may need to make alterations; this will always be discussed before the fitment begins.
