Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW X4 estate?

If you don’t want your SUV to look boxy, the Mercedes GLC Coupé has a similarly raked rear end to the X4 and is a similar size. It won’t handle as sharply as the BMW does and its four-cylinder diesel isn't anywhere near as refined, though.

The Porsche Macan doesn’t have coupé-inspired styling, but it is a well-rounded shape and it is mighty impressive to drive on the road. You’ll have to pay for the privilege, though – there's no four-cylinder diesel available and Porsche used values remain strong, but we think it’s still worth it.  

Overview

There are a number of more practical SUVs on offer, but few are quite as good to drive as the BMW X4

  • Sharp handling
  • Smooth 20d diesel engine
  • User-friendly infotainment system
  • Pricey to buy
  • Limited rear head room
  • Rear blindspot and shallow back window
