The X4 Concept has been revealed and as expected, it’s a mini version of the X6 SAV, both a coupe version of their more upright brothers (X3 and X5, respectively).
Let’s have a look at how the X4 compares to the X6 in size and styling.
The just revealed X4 Concept previews the production X4 (F26) SAV which will share the same platform and underpinnings with the X3 (F25) when the X4 hits the market next year. The two will share the same powertrains and have mirroring model lines, as the X6 does with the X5.
As for physical size, the concept X4 shares nearly the same length and wheelbase as the X3, while being wider and lower than the X3. Here’s how the dimensions compare and a look at how the styling differs between the two.
Watch and listen to some super sedans blasting around the ring, in a great back-to-back listen of some of BMW’s most exciting current and future M models – the F80 M3, E90 M3 CRT, F10 M5.
We have looked at the F32 4 Series Coupe against the E92 3 Series Coupe (comparison pics), now let’s look at how the 4 Series Coupe looks against its most direct competitor in the marketplace – the Audi A5 Coupe.
Compared to the A5 Coupe, the 4 Series Coupe in concept form is:
+ 0.6 inches (16mm) length
- 1.8 inches (28mm) width
- 0.5 inches (12mm) height
+ 2.3 inches (59mm) wheelbase
Note: these are calculated using concept (not production) 4 Series dimensions.
As for the aesthetics, well, that’s subjective of course, but we think that overall (except maybe the front end, which still isn’t totally clear in the spy photos) the F32 looks sportier and more athletic than the A5.
The M3 battles its super sedan rivals – the C63 AMG and the IS-F on the track.
Now that we have seen the production 4 Series coupe fully uncovered, a natural comparison to draw is between the 4 Series coupe (F32) and the model that it succeeds, the 3 Series coupe (E92).
We do not yet know the official dimensions of the production 4 Series coupe, but for reference the concept 4 series dimensions are:
1.6 inches longer than E92 3 Series coupe
1.6 inches wider than E92 3 Series Coupe
1.3 inches lower than E92 3 Series Coupe
1.9 inches longer wheelbase than E92 3 Series coupe
1.7 inches wider front track than E92 3 Series coupe
3.1 inches wider rear track than E92 3 Series coupe
Note: these are calculated using concept (not production) 4 Series dimensions
Great looking photoshoot of the last two BMW M Roadsters – the Z4 and the Z3.

On Saturday, February 16, 2013, the M Owners Club of Indonesia (MOCI) held one of their most exciting meet events in Jakarta. The. event was originally scheduled for last month, but due to heavy rain and flooding in some areas in Jakarta.
This newly scheduled event was held as a charity event, with the donations and proceeds going to help the flood affected areas. The event was joined by other car clubs as well, with owners of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, and other exotics in attendance and driving in the events.
