    BMW X4

    Small but packed with style – that’s the new baby brother to the X6, which these official sketches show is on the way. We stumbled across drawings of an ‘X4’ buried within the press material at the launch of the new X3.

    Rumours of an aggressive SUV coupé based on the X3 have been circulating for some time, but these images give the clearest idea yet of how BMW’s three-door rival to the Range Rover Evoque will look. We spoke to the man responsible for the sketches, X3 designer Erik Goplen – and he told Auto Express that he would “love to see it made”.

    We also cornered Markus Braunsberger, the project manager for the firm’s X models, who said: “There is certainly space in the product line-up for an X4 – but we have to make sure it doesn’t steal sales from
    the X3.”

    The newcomer is likely to use similar hardware and interior components to the X3, including its 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo engine, which offers 300bhp-plus. According to our sources, the X4 has already gone from drawing board to concept stage, and we could see a show car next year, with a production model in 2013.

     I'd dig that .

    Nice, quite a few of these sporty 2 door utility vehicles approaching our showrooms from various brands. I wouldn't mind, it makes sense.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

     For me far to small for an SUV. If you want a huge car it should be huge.

    looks interesting

     Well huge goes hand in hand with expensive most of the time, and a more affordable smaller model would appeal to a lot of people. Not to mention those who don't get an suv because they don't need the extra space but would like the added clearance and capability.
