Only 3 months remain until the production BMW X4 (F26) is introduced to the world at the 2014 Geneva auto show, making it 11 months between the concept first debuted at the Shanghai auto show and the production debut next March.
Prototypes testing continues and we have some more photos to show you. Although the production X4 has already been caught undisguised recenty (photos), below are pics which also show 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 (with the X4 less spacious inside).
The US will receive the X4 in 28i (240hp 2.0L N20 engine) and 35i models (300hp 3.0L N55 engine). It’s possible that … CONTINUED
One of the unknowns surrounding the BMW X4, which will make its debut at the 2014 Geneva show in March, is whether it will be offered in a full blown M model (i.e. X4 M) like its bigger cousins – the X5 M and X6 M. Early indications have been no.
But a new report suggests that although a full fledged M model may not be in BMW’s plans, a diesel M Performance Model may be. This is according to statements made in a recent interview by BMW Australia Managing Director, Phil Horton.
Horton recently said that “There are plans to expand the diesel M lineup,”… “I think where there might be potential is in the new X4, which we’ll be bringing in next year.” He … CONTINUED
The 2014 BMW X4 has been revealed, spotted during a commercial shoot.
Commercial photo or video shoots for the upcoming BMW X4 have commenced, with this commercial shoot being witnessed by a BIMMERPOST member in downtown Dallas.
We’ve shown you stills, now have a live look at the BMW X4 SAV prototype undergoing testing on the Nurburgring and around town.
The “baby X6″ will stick close to its concept design, as shown by this video, the reposted spy photos below, and the revealed patent design images.
As with the X3, the X4 will be produced in Spartanburg, SC.

We’ve shown you many looks at the exterior of the X4 prototypes, but no views of the X4 interior (not even on the concept X4), until now.
The X4′s interior design is predictably similar to the X3, with which it shares a platform (see comparison photo). The new iDrive touch control knob can be seen. As with the X3, the X4 will be produced in Spartanburg. Expect the X4 to hit the market in the second half of 2014 – early 2015.
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.
The patent drawings for the upcoming X4 SAV have been revealed and they preview many body panels, as well as headlights and tail lights.
The front bumper pictured in the diagrams may be an M Sport bumper as it features much larger air intakes than those seen on recent standard model X4 prototypes.
And while the production X4 will lose the hexagonal corona lights of the X4 Concept, the diagrams show that the X4 will receive a full adaptive LED headlight option (figure 3.2).
Here’s a real life look at the upcoming BMW X4 SAV versus the current X3. Both cars share the same platform.
