Lightbulb BMW X4 (F26) Spied Nearly Sans Camouflage and Against Next X6

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMW X4 (F26) Spied Nearly Sans Camouflage, and Against X6
76
COMMENTS

The first ever BMW X4 (F26) will be officially introduced in under 2 months at the 2014 New York Auto Show in April, which means it's about time for the prototypes to drop nearly all their camouflage.

These photos now expose the X4's front fascia design. We have also reposted the fully revealed production X4 which was caught during a commercial shoot in October. Some have labeled the X4 a "baby X6," which is an accurate description judging by the looks of the photos below showing the X4 prototype following an X6 (F16) prototype.

We've also reposted a recent set of photos showing the scale of the X4 compared to the X3, with which it shares a platform. Their exteriors may be different, but they share virtually the same interior styling, while the X4 will have a slightly less spacious rear passenger compartment owing to its sloping roofline.

If the X4 is offered in the U.S. with the same sDrive and xDrive lineup as the just-introduced refreshed X3, these would be the models:

X4 sDrive28i model
X4 xDrive28i model
X4 xDrive28d model
X4 xDrive35i model

A recent report suggests that even if an X4 M model does not come, an M Performance diesel model is likely (though perhaps not for the US).

As with the X3, the X4 will be produced in Spartanburg, SC.

Oh WOW - I didn't realize how much smaller this thing is than the X6. It literally is a baby X6. Pretty cool. The concept looked great and the X4 looks almost the same as the concept.

I think it'll be a great small SUV (Yes, I know, it's an SAC technically) alternative to an X3.

Indication is that they will use a floating screen, but hey, it's BMW, who knows what makes sense over there.

What indication? That near production car has the old style center console iDrive. I'm surprised BMW is releasing a new car with the old style.

Can't believe they'd build an x4d m-performance in SC USA and not offer it to us. Why not try!!!?!? We will buy performance diesels. I'd love the torque!

I'm a fan of this. It's the size is the old x5 with style

Ummmm, No Thank You... Baby X6

The design group needs new inspiration, not just adjusting the size between models.

Framed Idrive screen like the F series cars, cleverly hidden by x3 dashboard.

It's been discussed at length.

"The interior of the X4 will receive a modern contemporary interior of current BMW standards including revised upper dashboard to incorporate a floating flat screen monitor. Seating will accommodate five passengers with optional seating for four."

As of now , the only car I am interested is the up coming f80 M3, everything else by BMW is just so dull! Sure most new models will sell but they are not for me.

I think the floating screen is covered up by a panel. It looks like that to me.
