The upcoming 2015 BMW X4 begins its public testing sessions. A prototype of the “baby-SAC” was spotted near the Spartanburg factory in South Carolina.
As seen in the spy shot below and carrying over from the BMW Concept X4 revealed in April, design wise, the BMW X4 stands out with its massive and sporty front-end. 3D kidney grilles and “squared” circular headlights are being icons on all the new BMW models.
The high gloss frame of the grille is open to the sides and at its lower extreme, lending it an almost “floating” appearance in the center of the nose. The grille features prominently sculptured bars with ultra-stylish detailing.
At the side of the car, the elegant coupe style roofline makes the 2015 BMW X4 appear longer and more dynamic. The stretched and shallow band of glass creates a persuasively dynamic link between the greenhouse and vehicle body, the slim glass surface giving the body an impressively powerful appearance.
The X4 sports a wide track and low center of gravity so we expect a quite sporty ride from the “baby-SAC”.
The second Sporty Activity Coupe in the brand´s model range uses the same platform as the BMW X3 so pricing should be closer to the X3 than the X5.
