2022 BMW X4 M Facelift Spied For The First Time
The relentless march of the SUV and crossover train cannot be stopped. The current BMW X4 crossover isn’t old, having debuted in spring 2018 for the 2019 model year. The high-performance M edition, which debuted last year for 2020, is even more recent. wants to keep its crossover fresh, however, as evidenced by these spy photos capturing a refurbished X4 M prototype for the first time.
Quadruple tailpipes and massive drilled rotors identify this as the M version, and we believe it will be a 2022 model since the current model is barely a year old. As the pictures clearly show, changes are happening to the front and rear and that could be worrying for some, especially the front. One can’t help but notice that the face of this test vehicle has extensive coverings, especially around the grille. This certainly raises the question – could BMW be hiding a big double kidney similar to the 4 Series?
The typical mid-cycle refresh usually involves a minor pinch of the existing kit with revised lights, and as of now that’s what our sources say for the X4 M. That means no massive grille, although l The current crossover supply may increase. slightly. Expect small changes to the lower bumper and narrower headlights similar to the 5 Series are expected. The changes are less dramatic at the rear, with the redesigned taillights the center of attention.

We’re not privy to a peek inside this test vehicle, but our spy sources tell us changes are coming to the infotainment screen and center console. Along with the grille, the screen should get bigger and a new shift lever will fit into a redesigned console. The iDrive control will be better integrated into the console and will use BMW’s latest iDrive software.
In terms of power, no change is expected. It’s not as if the current X4 M is left behind with 473 horsepower (353 kilowatts) from its twin-turbocharged inline-six engine. Upgrade to the Competition version and that climbs to 503 hp (375 kW), routed to all four wheels via an eight-speed gearbox.
We don’t have a specific timeline for a reveal, but it is expected to happen later in 2021 for the 2022 model year.
