2022 BMW X3 and X4 facelift design

A new grille steals the show for the new X3 and X4

Tweaks to both the BMW X3 and X4’s design aren’t drastic, but not so subtle as to leave you oblivious to them. The ‘kidney’ grille has been made a bit larger and is now made of a single piece rather than split up by the bodywork.

Both cars, with the X4 shown here in M40i guise, get 19-inch alloys as standard — which can be increased to 21-inches

Flatter headlights have been added too, with adaptive LED units now coming as standard. Changes at the back of the X3 and X4 aren’t major, though you do get completely new taillights on the X3.

Redesigned taillights on the X3 round out the changes

A fresh 19-inch alloy wheel design comes on M Sport cars as well, with 20- and 21-inch units available as an option.

2022 BMW X3 and X4 facelift interior and infotainment

The centre console of both cars has been streamlined

There’s a fair bit of change inside both the BMW X3 and X4. The centre console on both cars has been given a complete redesign, doing away with a cluttered climate control system to bring those functions into a simpler row of buttons.

A new 12.3-inch infotainment system comes as standard

A 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system also comes at no extra cost as well, with new sports seats also joining the standard equipment list. Leather seats now come as standard on both the X3 and X4.

2022 BMW X3 and X4 facelift engines

The engine line-up is familiar for both cars, though mild-hybrid tech now comes across the entire range

Though the core engine line-up of the BMW X3 and X4 hasn’t seen a major overhaul — you still have a good choice of petrol and diesel engines — each does now come with 48v mild-hybrid technology as standard.

All versions of the X3 and X4 get an all-wheel-drive system and an eight-speed gearbox as standard

This allows the engine to cut off a little earlier when coming to a standstill in a bid to save fuel and reduce emissions. All get all-wheel-drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox as well.

A plug-in hybrid version of the X3 remains on sale, offering 31 miles of electric-only driving

A plug-in hybrid option is still available for the X3 as well, though not the X4, which gives the SUV up to 31 miles of electric-only driving.
