We Hear: Sportier BMW X4 M40i Coming

Jason Udy
Aug 8, 2014
We’ve already driven the 300-hp 2015 BMW X4 xDrive35i and now new rumors suggest the automaker is working on a sportier X4 M40i model with a more powerful 3.0-lliter turbocharged I-6 engine. Power is expected to increase to around 355-375 hp.
Unlike the larger upcoming X5 M and X6 M, the 2015 BMW X4 M40i will be an M Performance-badged model rather than a full-bore BMW M model, according to Autocar. We've heard that an X3 M40i is also in the works, so applying the same treatment to the X3's fastback sibling only makes sense. Exterior changes to the X4 M40i are expected to include black kidney grilles up front, dual exhaust tips in back, and more.

While the BMW M3 and M4 are powered by a 425-hp 3.0-liter twin-turbo I-6, the BMW X4 M40i will feature an upgraded version of the X4 xDrive35i’s 3.0-liter single-turbo I-6. The more powerful single-turbo engine is also rumored for the BMW M2 coupe.
Potential rivals for the 2015 BMW X4 M40i include the Audi RS Q3, Mercedes-Benz ML-Coupe, and Porsche Macan Turbo.
