BMW has finally released details of the X4. But while pictures of it have surfaced, those who wish to get up close and personal will have to wait till end of next month, when the car will make its public debut at the New York Auto Show.
It is not hard to see why BMW terms it 'Sports Activity Coupe' or SAC. The X4, in essence, is a slantback X3. The X4 also shares its technical blueprint with its 'smaller' brother.
Dimensionally, the X4 will be 14mm longer and sits 37mm closer to the ground than the X3.
BMW claims that the X4 will also have a more sporty suspension. All variants will come standard with xDrive - the marque's intelligent all-wheel drive system.
Powertrain wise, the X4 will receive a host of engine options - up to three petrol and three diesel variants. The top-of-line xDrive35i will have a 3.0-litre in-line six engine capable of 300bhp and 400Nm of torque.
The X4 will also boasts decent utility - with a 500 litres boot that can be further expandable to 1,400 litres.
