Alfardan Automobiles, the Official BMW Group importer in Qatar, has announced that the all-new BMW X4 Sports Activity Coupé and new BMW X3 have gone on sale in Qatar.


Visually, the new BMW X4 combines impressive sports car performance and Sports Activity Vehicle versatility with the elegance of a coupé.

Commenting on the arrival of the vehicles, Mr. Mohammad Kandeel, Chief Operating Officer, Alfardan Group – Automotive Division said: “The BMW X4 is a welcome addition to our X family here in Qatar. Blending performance and utility in a muscular skin, the BMW X4 will be BMW’s second offering in the Sports Activity Coupé segment. Similarly, 10 years on, the new BMW X3 continues to build on its best-in-class versatility and robust agility. We are confident that both vehicles will resonate well with our clientele in Qatar who consistently demand the best in premium motoring.”

From the front, the car is immediately recognisable as a member of the BMW X family: The large air intakes positioned on the outer edges of the front end and the precise character lines in the front apron give the X4 a 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 handling.

The coupé-like roofline of the BMW X4 reaches its highest point over the front seats, reflecting the traditional driver focus of BMW cars, before dropping gently down towards the trailing edge of the tailgate. These stretched lines 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.

The generously sized interior of the new BMW X4 combines sportiness and exclusivity with high-level functionality. Every control element is angled towards the driver, for optimal ergonomics. Occupants in the new model enjoy an elevated seating position, with the front and rear seats. Equally impressive is the load capacity available (500–1,400 litres), which can be used in a wide variety of ways thanks to the standard 40:20:40 split rear seat bench. Everyday usability is further enhanced by the standard-fitted automatically opening tailgate. This can be further specified with the Comfort Access Option for extra convenience, which allows it to be opened with a movement of the foot.

The BMW X4 will be available with two powerful engines, both with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. Topping the range is the BMW X4 xDrive35i with a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine delivering a maximum output of 225 kW/306 hp and propelling the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.5 seconds. In addition, the xDrive28i has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine delivering 180 kW/245 hp and goes from 0-100 km/h in 6.4 seconds.


Since the launch of the first BMW X3 in 2001, it has been a paragon of sporty dynamics, premium ambience and robust agility, coupled with low fuel consumption and emissions, for over 10 years. In addition, the vehicle has racked up sales figures of more than one million units. The second generation of the successful BMW X3 has since made a compelling case for itself since its introduction in 2010, boasting the best interior and boot measurements and the greatest versatility in its class.

The newly designed BMW X3 has a significant exterior design and engine modifications that make the car more attractive, more powerful and more fuel efficient. From the front, the new BMW X3 features a redesigned kidney grille, modified round twin headlights and new front and rear bumper, new exterior colours and new wheel designs.


Two additional individualisation options are available: the xLine package features matt aluminium inserts in the bumpers, aluminium satiated side cladding and bars in the air intakes. In addition, 18-inch light alloy U-spoke wheels are available as a standard with the larger 19-inch offered as an additional option.

The superb dynamic qualities of the new BMW X3 can be showcased to even greater effect by specifying the M Sport package, with the M aerodynamic package and BMW Individual High-gloss Shadow Line trim maximising the car’s sporty presence on the road. In addition, customers can choose from six exterior paint colours including Carbon Black metallic and three exclusive light-alloy wheel options in 18 or 19 inch.


The third generation BMW X3 will be available with a TwinPower Turbo powerplant that will deliver more power yet consume less fuel and reduce emissions to unprecedented levels. The BMW X3 xDrive28i four-cylinder engine delivers 180 kW/245 hp


Both the BMW X4 and X3 are equipped with BMW ConnectedDrive features 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 an optional 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. What’s more, the latest-generation Navigation System Professional with ECO PRO route guidance now teams up with the iDrive Touch Controller whose touchpad allows texts e.g. a navigation destination – to be easily inputted by using a finger. Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function and surround view (360°) for optimal visibility when manoeuvring in tight spaces are features that are also available.

The new BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle and all-new BMW X4 Sports Activity Coupé offer a host of design, technology and performance options that is expected to strengthen BMW's leading position in the Sports Activity Segment.
