Following a teaser video of the X4 coupe-SUV, BMW India has now given us its price. Positioned between the X3 and the X5, the new M Sport variant of the SUV carries a sticker price of Rs 96.20 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Before being delisted from the company's website, the BMW X4 was offered in two variants – xDrive30i and xDrive30d, and in Silver Shadow, Black Shadow, and 50 Jahre M Editions. And now, the carmaker has brought back the model in the M40i variant, offering the four-door SUV with a coupe-like roofline. Then, there is a blacked-out kidney grille, slim LED headlamps, twin L-shaped LED daytime running lights, 20-inch Jet Black M light alloy wheels, glossy black skid plates & outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs), and wraparound LED taillights, along with 'M Sport' badging to distinguish it from the standard version. The SUV comes in two exterior paint options – Brooklyn Grey and Black Sapphire.
