BMW unveils new X series model in Kuwait
Kuwait, August 19, 2014
BMW has unveiled its new X4 model in Kuwait, in association with its sole dealer Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive.
The model combines sports car performance and sports activity vehicle versatility with the elegance of a coupe, said a statement.
Yousuf Al Qatami, general manager of the dealer, said: “We are extremely proud to present another pioneering concept and design from the BMW X family. The new BMW X4 stands out from the crowd with its striking design that makes a statement. We are indeed thrilled to be able to bring to the Kuwaiti market the all new BMW X4 which will add to our X model success story.”
“As the new BMW X4 fuses the quintessential power of an X model with the aesthetics of a classic coupé, and its dynamic contours and coupé-style silhouette transforming every road into a stage on which it is the undisputed star of the show, we are extremely confident that it won’t be for long before the X4 becomes another undisputed market leader in Kuwait,” he added.
The front of the car features large air intakes positioned on the outer edges of the front end like a member of the BMW X family and the precise character lines in the front apron lend the X4 a more muscular and agile appearance. And the car's wide track, visually low centre of gravity, long wheelbase and pronounced wheel arches emphasise its good road holding, said the statement.
It also features stretched lines that underline the sporting coupé character of the X4 particularly effectively. The standalone design of the BMW X4 is further reinforced by the fresh interpretation of the signature swage line running along the sides of models, it said.
It is also equipped with the BMW ConnectedDrive feature that comprise a plethora of driver assistance systems that provide the driver with safety, convenience and infotainment at an unmatched level.
Some of these include high-resolution, full-colour head-up display, which projects all important driving information and the assistance systems displays into the driver’s field of view. It also features the latest-generation Navigation System Professional with ECO PRO route guidance teamed up with the iDrive Touch Controller whose touchpad allows texts to be easily inputted by using a finger.
The BMW X4 will be available with two powerful engines, all with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.
