This week at the Shanghai International Auto Show, BMW reveled the exterior of what they’re calling the 2014 BMW Concept X4. Taking a number of design cues from it’s older and larger brother, the X6, the X4 is BMW’s newest 5-door Sports Activity Coupe. The X4 is slated for a likely 2014 model year release and will be produced at BMW’s Spartanburg, SC facility.
Sharing a platform with the BMW X3 means a reliable chassis, but each body panel is constructed unique for the X4 giving the distinctive styling that typifies the BMW Sports Activity Coupe body style.
Although interior options and power train details have not yet been released we expect the power plant offerings for the X4 to include the TwinPower Turbo 2.0 liter 4-cylinder motor and the turbocharged 3.0 inline 6-cylinder. We’re also hopeful for a diesel offering from BMW on this smaller, sleeker SAC.
We also expect the X4 will share many of the high end interior components it’s cousin the X3 has. The Spartanburg, South Carolina production facility recently underwent a multi-million dollar expansion, allowing it the capacity to produce more models, such as the X4.Share on Facebook
