Lightbulb BMW X4 Concept vs X3, a Comparison Look

BMW X4 Concept vs X3, a Comparison Look
33
COMMENTS

The just revealed X4 Concept [full details] previews the production X4 (F26) SAV which will share the same platform and underpinnings with the X3 (F25) when the X4 hits the market next year. The two will share the same powertrains and have mirroring model lines, as the X6 does with the X5.

As for physical size, the concept X4 has the same length and wheelbase as the X3, while being wider and lower than the X3. Here's how the dimensions compare and a look at how the styling differs between the two.

Love the X4... I like it better than the 4 series coupes, and the 3 series sedans... maybe the M4 will change my mind, but I can see myself driving a X4 over any of the cars... the new line of cars don't look changed enough and are boring (I see a lot of people who don't like the 4 series coupes/sedans, etc)

The style all around fits the X4 better than the X6. The rear of the X6 seems overly huge.

Wouah! This is going to sell so good.
Much nicer than the current X6.
This is by far the best news from Münich since a long time.
Great job, think this will replace my current x3 35i

So, in short, it looks better than the X3 from every angle.

It doesn't unfortunately.

Spy photos (see: http://www.bimmerpost.com/2-series/spyshots/) have shown that the best it gets are squared off headlights.

It likely won't get those, unfortunately. The 4-series Concept was shown with similar headlights, and the production versions have more traditional looking lamps.

This has me sold over a 3 or 4 series. Let's just hope it's released sometimes in the next couple years.

I think your chart is labeled incorrectly. You have the X4 marked as the F32 rather than the F26.

Or maybe I'm missing something here. Either way, I dig the new look.

In my opinion the theory behind the X6 was BMW trying to troll the world. They took the fantastic X5, reduced the headroom, decreased the cargo capacity, and lowed the roof line toward the end to make it a "sport-back". Then finally they raised the price by a couple thousand just to see if anybody would buy it.

Result? It sold like wildfire..

I think the X4 will be proof that history repeats itself, except this time it will be with the X3 instead of the 5.

At least its safe to say we'll know what the X3 will look like right? lol

This makes the X3 look like a 10 year old model (dated).
