Two powertrains will be offered in the US. An M Sport suspension is standard for both models.

The 20d, priced from £42,900, offers 190hp, gets from 0-62mph in eight seconds, has official combined fuel economy of 52.3mpg, and Carbon dioxide emissions of 142g/km.

BMW has taken wraps off its reworked X4 SUV, a vehicle that essentially offers a medium-sized version of the company's popular X6.

The images for "Pale Blue Dot " - part of a composite - were taken 3.75 billion miles (6.06 billion kilometres) away. Several hours after that first image, New Horizons broke its own record with the two images at the top of this story.

The xDrive30i features an engine that's new to the X4 but used widely in other BMW models, a 248-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 258 pounds-feet of torque.

All X4s direct their engine's power to the road via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive as standard, while Experience Control lets the driver choose from Sport, Comfort and Eco Pro set-ups. Acceleration 0 - 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, top speed 250 km/h. The 0-62mph sprint drops to 6.3 seconds, economy only gets as high as 39.2mpg on average and Carbon dioxide emissions are as much as 168g/km. Three full-size seats provide passengers with an additional 27 millimetres of legroom over the previous model, while boot has capacity has been increased to 525 litres. Combining robust all-round qualities with the sporty elegance of a BMW coupé, the model succeeded in arousing the enthusiasm of new target groups for the unique driving pleasure offered by a BMW X model.

The design team has applied its latest styling to the new X4, with more pronounced kidney grilles, stretched out and slimmer headlights, with elongated LED taillights at the back, and new front and rear bumper bars.

Those lack of recent visits and his hot current play suggest Mickelson will be chomping at the bit to get started there again. He had finished in the top 3 in this first two events of the year, but was playing in the USA for the first time in 2018.

Due in South Africa in the last quarter of 2018 is the 2993cc turbodiesel six xDrive30d, tuned for 195kW at 4000 revs and 620Nm from 2000-2500rpm, which will launch it to 100km/h in a claimed 5.8 seconds and on to 240km/h, while burning an NEDC-rated 6.2 litres per 100km. The figure rises to £55,315 for the range-topping X4 M40d trim. The exterior of the 2019 BMW X4 doesn't stray too far from the current model, but it is now bigger than before. That means prices starting just below the £40,000 mark and climbing to £50,000 and above for sportier M models.

As with most BMW products, the majority of the car's functions are controlled by the iDrive infotainment system, which features sophisticated connectivity as standard using BMW's impressive extended range of BMW Connected and ConnectedDrive features.

The one we fancy, however is the optional Display Key, with a 5.5cm touch display that shows you fuel level, remaining range, and service information, and can remotely close the power windows and operate the auxiliary heating system. The BMW plant in the U.S. state of SC is the "Home of BMW x models" for the BMW X models within the BMW Group's global production network. The X4 is closely related to the X3, which got a redesign for 2018. A SIM card comes as standard, which allows the use of BMW Teleservices in the event of an emergency - with an automatic prompt if a low-speed collision is detected.
