In terms of sheer quantity, BMW was guaranteed to have one of the most memorable showings of this year’s New York International Auto Show. Among the vehicles on display at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from March 30 to April 8 were the first-ever BMW X2, 2019 BMW i8 Coupe, BMW i8 Roadster, BMW M5, BMW X3 and BMW i3s, making BMW’s lineup among the most formidable and versatile.
Comprehensive quality was as essential to BMW being one of the most talked-about brands at the show, and this was perhaps nowhere better demonstrated than it was in the 2019 BMW X4 M40i, which made its North American debut and instantly established itself as the must-have Sports Activity Coupe® for the performance enthusiast.
The 2019 X4 M40i is 3 inches longer and 1.4 inches wider than its predecessor with a 2.1-inch-longer wheelbase, granting it a more formidable profile that is further enhanced by exclusive M Performance design elements. With more aerodynamic front and rear aprons and side skirts, 19-inch Double-spoke M bi-color Orbit Grey wheels and Cerium Grey exterior finish, the 2019 X4 M40i M Performance looks as fierce as its 355-horsepower inline six-cylinder engine performs.
The BMW i8 Coupe, BMW i8 Roadster and BMW i3s establishes BMW’s commitment to creating vehicles that are environmentally sound without sacrificing excitement or refinement. The all-new BMW X2 further exemplifies its determination to differentiate the Sports Activity Coupe® from a run-of-the-mill crossover, and the third-generation BMW X3 continues to set the standard for excellence among Sports Activity Vehicle®. The all-new BMW M5 doesn’t merely show BMW’s steadfastness in making a better sports sedan, but with the debut of M xDrive, it shows that BMW remains ahead of the curve.
With these and other exceptional new vehicles, including the all-new BMW 5 Series, it was a clear combination of quantity and quality that made BMW the talk of the town at this year’s New York International Auto Show.
