Following yesterday‘s leaked details and photos, the Germans at BMW officially introduced the new X4 Concept, a prototype which preview the upcoming production model.
Scheduled to debut in world premiere at the upcoming Shanghai Auto Show, the new BMW X4 Concept shows an evolution in terms of design compared to the bigger X6. Styling improvements include new optical blocks, a revised kidney front grille, LED daytime running lights, new hood and larger alloy wheels.
A more aggressive roof line and a special Long Beach Blue finish also improve the model’s appearance while new LED taillights and a dual-pipe exhaust complete the exterior tweaks.
The production version of this prototype will be built in South Carolina and is expected to go on sale in early 2014.
Power will be provided by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit producing 240 horsepower and 352Nm of torque, with a more potent 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo offering 300 horses available as well. If we do know the engine range of the final model, we can’t tell you what powers the prototype version yet.
