With BMW getting ready to celebrate its 100th birthday, the company is not showing its age and continues its tradition of rolling out strong models for today’s drivers. That’s one reason behind the development of the sporty new 2017 BMW X4 M40i Sports Activity Coupe – a model that provides power, handling and a sleek look all in one package.

When this model rolls at you, there’s no mistaking the classic look of the BMW sedan. At first glance this model looks like it was built to hit the tracks alongside some of the many BMW racing models, but the new 2017 BMW X4 M40i has some surprises under the hood and on the interior. Starting with the engine, the X4 is powered by a 3.0-liter straight-six engine that generates an incredible 355 horsepower at 5,600 RPMs and 343 pound-feet of torque at 1,350 RPM. With that kind of power it won’t be surprising to drivers that the 2017 BMW X4 M40i can accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in under five seconds. Power is sent to the wheels in this all -wheel drive model via an eight-speed Steptronic transmission.

When you’re driving a sleek model like the 2017 BMW X4 M40i, you’ll be pleased to know that it comes with a number of great standard safety features, including traction control, brake assist, electronic stability, a security system and several airbags, including occupant sensing airbags, overhead airbags, dual front side impact airbags and dual front impact airbags. The model also comes with four-wheel disc brakes and anti-whiplash front head restraints. Another cool safety feature is ignition disable, a passive form of security that could keep your 2017 BMW X4 M40i out of the hands of potential thieves.
