2014 BMW X4 spied testing in Munich, Germany

BMW showed the X4 concept at the Shanghai Motor Show in April, previewing a production model that will go on sale next year.

Based on the X3, the X4 follows a similar coupe like crossover design as the bigger X6, that BMW calls Sports Activity Coupe.

The X4 Concept was 4,648mm in length, 1,915mm in width, 1,622mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,810mm.

The production model does not look as sporty as the concept. The rear looks quite high, space inside is limited and it really isn’t very practical. We’ll see in a couple of years how successful it is, but we believe it will be a niche vehicle with no big sales.

As it is based on the X3, we expect the engine choices to carry over with no changes, meaning there will be a:
A TwinPower Turbo 2.0-litre four-cylinder with 240bhp and 352 Nm of torque
A TwinPower Turbo 3.0-litre inline-six with 300bhp and 406 Nm of torque
A 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel with 184bhp and 380 of torque

The X4 will be built in South Carolina, US and the production model is expected to debut in early 2014 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
