Lightbulb BMW X4 M Sport Spied in Testing

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMW X4 M Sport Spied in Testing
28
COMMENTS

Following the leak of its patent drawings, the X4 M Sport has now been spied out testing.

Like the X3 M Sport, with which it shares a platform, the X4 M Sport Package will feature cosmetic enhancements such as the M Sport aerodynamic kit, M Sport wheels and shadowline exterior trim, as well as an M Sport steering wheel and interior.

The aerodynamic kit includes the M Sport front bumper, rear bumper, sideskirts and body color matched fenders, which can be seen on this prototype.

This model also features the adaptive LED headlights seen in the patents.

meh

Dunno really... i couldnt justify buyin one...
I if need a spacy and convenient car i would buy an x3,
I if need a sporty car i would choose a 3...

I like the x6 because its "quite" exclusive but if everybody is drivin an x4 it'll be like the evoque...

Lol that's true. Maybe since the vehicle rides so much higher than a sedan that it does not require that line

Your'e going to get seriously injured if hit by either car anyway lol

Only white test mules? I prefer the X4 over the X6, way more practical/manouvrablenin daily traffic.

the regulation doesnt apply to suv's since they are higher up. the regulation deals with lower limb impact. although that hood line looks sharp by the kidney.

i dont get this car. you have the x3 and the 3gt, why do we need the x4 again?

donno but i feel it doesnt have the right stance. do I have to buy the biggest set of wheels available to make this car cool? i think the Evoque would be a better alternative although a bit smaller maybe

I don't understand who this car is going to appeal to. Like someone else said here, if you want a sporty car, get a 4-series/M4. If you need utility, get an X3/X5. The looks of this car don't help either...

Pst.... The X6, it still sells very well
The X4 will make it's mark just nicely!

Wheels

These are the wheels in right diameter for that car
X4 wheels look smal!

There isn't a single thing about this vehicle that implies sporty, aggressive, or sexy

It's just......oh boy.....yaawwnn

Looks ok right now, except for the fact that you can already tell the headlights will touch the kidney grills, a la 3 series (I hate that look). The hood doesn't have the beluga whale shape to it which is good. The wheels do look pretty bad (tiny) as everyone else said.


I like the idea of smaller X6. The X6 is too pricey for me right now but this X4 should be within my budget when it comes out. Maybe they'll make an M version too.

Resembles my 1978 Datsun B210, but probably won't be as reliable, easy to service or as good on gas.

Sorry man I haven't smoked crack in a while, so it's hard to see the resemblance

"In a while" might be the problem.

Want to share your stash with me? Then I will see what you are talking about. Because as of now, sober, I cannot possibly imagine how those 2 cars look anything alike. Just sayin'

I like the X4, I think it's a neat concept as in a "baby X6" and just like the X6, it will be a successful new BMW model.
