This is the all-new second-generation BMW X4 coupe-SUV

The options list now includes electrically adjustable seats that can be heated and ventilated, three-zone climate control and a larger panoramic glass roof than in the old auto. While those numbers won't easily convert to anything resembling a US mpg rating, it's easy to see how much more efficient the diesel will be. There are even particulate filters, even for the petrol engines.

After launching in the X2 for the first time, BMW's M Sport X trim now comes to the X4 which includes grey claddings around the vehicle and coloured stitching for the interior trim. The new BMW also receives Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist systems, as standard. The now sole petrol option is also the most powerful, the M40i with 360hp and a 0-62mph time of 4.8 seconds.However two more mainstream units are expected to join the range with 186 and 255hp respectively. That equates to more space inside, particularly for rear passengers, while the boot has also grown to 525 litres, meaning it should be practical enough for most families.

The second generation BMW X4 will debut at the Geneva show in March - just four years after the original went on sale. That massive sunroof measures 36.4-inches long and 35-inches wide. xDrive AWD is available and the standard 30i engine is a 248hp four using twin-turbos while the M version gets 355hp.

BMW says the added length and width of the X4 means there's more occupant room than before, and the climate control system now has three zones instead of two. A large, free-standing 10.25-inch infotainment screen is standard and dominates the center stack.

It's also got it where it counts, with the Performance Model rocking an inline six-cylinder engine.

A straight-six diesel will power the range-topping M40d, which will generate 326PS and 680Nm of torque. 19-inch and 20-inch wheels are on offer, with the latter shod in 245/45 front and 275/40 rear tyres. Optional safety features include active cruise control, which can bring the vehicle to a stop and pull away again in traffic, along with traffic-sign recognition and lane-departure warning systems.

Standard safety features include a frontal collision warning system and automatic emergency braking.

BMW also offers its "Parking Assistant Plus" pack on the X4, which includes a panoramic parking camera system with top-down and 3D views, as well as helping the you select and park in both parallel spots and bays. Driver assistance features and connectivity technologies have been improved. BMW is not a auto company to be left behind in the crossover stakes.

It's not much of a shock in here - standard BMW fare.
