The BMW X4 is what BMW likes to call a SAC (Sports Activity Coupé). It follows on the lines of the BMW X6 – part SUV and part coupé. The X4 will almost certainly create an all new segment in between the X3 and the X5.

The X4 is based on the X3’s platform underneath. Outside, the X4 sports a lot of styling elements that relate to the Concept 4 Series such as the head and tail lights. The roofline takes inspiration from the BMW X6 meanwhile.

The Concept X4 measures in at 4.64 meters in length, while the width is 1.91 meters. The 2.8 meter wheelbase and the 1.62 meter height will ensure that this BMW is spacious on the inside.

The concept car is sitting on 21-inch wheels, something that is always changed when a car goes from the concept to the production stage.

The Concept X4 is believed to go into production from early 2014. The X4 will be built in BMW’s facility at Spartanburg in the United States that also makes other X models. Cars such as the BMW X4 will ensure the projected sales of 2.5 million SUV’s/annum by 2020 is well achievable.
