BMW X4 to launch at New York Auto Show in April
The surprising success of the coupe version of the BMW X5 – the BMW X6 – made it highly probable that BMW would pull a similar trick with the X3 by building a coupe version of their smaller SUV. That probability became a certainty when BMW revealed a the BMW X4 Concept at the Shanghai Motor Show, looking just like an X6 on a boil wash.
Although BMW didn’t give any major details about what goes under the X4′s bonnet, it’s safe to assume the X4 will come with a similar engine lineup to the X3, an interior that’s also similar and a price point that’s a bit higher.
We’ll know more before too long about the X4′s specification as Autocar are reporting BMW will deliver a production version of the X4 at the New York Auto Show in April, as well as a minor facelift for the X3.
That will be the start of a bit of a BMW SUV offensive in 2014, with a new X6 planned to be revealed at the Moscow Motor Show in August and a range-topping X6 M (and an X5 M) before the end of 2014, complete with more power from the 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8.
