What Engine Oil For BMW X4?

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

More About The X4


Due to the combination of sporty coupe and rustic SUV, the BMW X4 is large and tall. Just under 4.8 meters long, around 1.94 meters wide and 1.62 meters high when looking at the dimensions of the body. The wheelbase is exactly 2,864 mm. This enables a generous amount of space for all occupants in the interior.

One of the great strengths of the BMW X4 is its suitability for everyday use, which results from the very large trunk, among other things. A loading volume of 525 litres should easily suffice even for a large transport. If more space is needed, the seats can be folded down. By using the second row of seats, the loading volume of the vehicle increases to up to 1430 litres.
