“In India, the BMW X4 established the distinct Sports Activity Coupe concept.” It immediately became the vehicle of choice for clients who have a distinct personality that distinguishes them from the crowd. As a result, we are overjoyed to announce the release of the first-ever BMW X4 M40i, which is a monument to the remarkable popularity of M-powered vehicles and the rising popularity of unique M Editions in India. The BMW X4 M40i is a daring disruptor, designed to outperform and built to last. “With its performance-oriented style, distinctive aesthetics, and increased power, you will be sure to stand out from the crowd,” said Vikram Pawah, president of BMW Group India, according to PTI.
