Some people want a car that doesn’t attract too much attention. And if that sounds like you, then you should probably steer clear of the BMW X4.

Like Marmite, Brexit and whether you should put jam or clotted cream on scones first, it polarises opinion. But no matter what you think of the X4’s SUV-cum-coupé looks, they certainly ensure it stands out.

There’s also no denying that they make the X4 less practical than the more conventional X3, to which it’s closely related. But is the difference big enough for it to be a problem? And is the X4 superior to the X3 in other areas?

That’s what we’ll be exploring in this review. Plus, we’ll compare it with key rivals such as the Mercedes GLC Coupé and Porsche Macan.
