We promise, we won’t mention the updated BMW X4’s bigger grille. The time for that is dead and gone. The upsized nostrils aren’t even that bad here—they’re certainly not as garish as those on the 4 Series, M3, or X7, which ushered in the new schnoz design in Bavaria. Besides, the grille isn’t the only update that BMW has made to the 2022 X4 and X4 M, even if it might be easiest to spot.
Beyond the new grille, there are some new taillights and other styling tweaks that help differentiate this facelifted compact BMW SUV from the previous model. The high-performance X4 M and its competition-badged sibling receives similar updates to the head- and tail lights, as well as even more aggressive front and rear bumpers. Similar changes also hit the X4’s more upright and square-roofed sibling, the X3 this year.
Inside, all versions the 2022 X4 benefit from an enlarged, 10.25-inch infotainment display. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is an optional extra, with a set of analog gauges serving as the standard setup. The center console borrows from the new 3 and 4 Series, and the dashboard itself gets a slight shakeup, too, with bigger air vents and redesigned HVAC controls.
