Video of BMW at the Auto Shanghai 2013, with press conferences showing the BMW X4 Concept, as well as visual highlights from the BMW display.
We were on hand to witness the BMW X4 Concept making its world debut today at the 2013 Auto Shanghai. As the X4 Concept draws heavily on the design of the X6 SAC, it looks very much like a mini-X6. Expect certain elements on the concept model to be changed when the production version hits the market next year – notably the headlight lighting elements, front bumper, mirrors and door handles.
The interior was not showcased, but expect it to share an interior with the current F25 X3. Enjoy the images from the show below.
