The upcoming BMW X4 makes an appearance at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. In concept form, the BMW X4 is finished in a stunning Long Beach Blue and sits on new 10-spoke wheels.

The second Sporty Activity Coupe in the brand´s model range will be built at BMW Plant Spartanburg, along with the X3, X5 and X6 models. It uses the same platform as the BMW X3 with a body length of 183 inches (4,648 mm), a width of 75.4 inches (1,915 mm) and a height of 63.9 inches (1,622 mm).

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 headlights flow into the kidney accentuating the width of the nose and a focused look on the road. The side air intakes are larger than the inner horizontal bars and make a visual feature of the increased cooling air requirement.

At the rear, the elegant coupe style roofline makes the car appear longer and more dynamic.

Engines are still yet to be confirmed, but the line-up is expected to be shared with the X3. Therefore, the entry-level X4 20d will be powered by the 181bhp 2.0-litre diesel and the X4 30d fitted with the 254bhp 3.0-litre straight-six. The X4 will be based on the same platform as the X3, so both rear wheel-drive and xDrive variants will be available.

    Macan looks better, especially the front side.

    The X4 is just fantastic. I’d highly consider that my for my next Bimm.

    But, aside from the i8 and i3, which are also amazing looking cars, I have to say that I found the other BMW’s rather boring.

    Things I noticed were smaller doors. Which is an interesting feature, I just found their doors to be small, but worse was they actually rattled, a few of them, not all. Even IF the windows were half way down, The X4 is just fantastic.

    Things I noticed were smaller doors. Which is an interesting feature, I just found their doors to be small, but worse was they actually rattled, a few of them, not all. Even IF the windows were half way down, there’s no excuse for that, today… from BMW. And the excuse was made by a BMW rep that air is sucked in but it was very apparent and that should not be happening to BMW doors. They also felt light. I wonder if its a cost cutting thing?

    I walk over to Mercedes Benz and their doors feel solid, a good solid weight.

    I’m obsessing over this because I CHOSE BMW for safety and I’m starting to look at Mercs I never really was into. AND even Cadillacs!

    I forgot Audi so nothing really stood out from the Audi’s I checked out. Land Rover is top level but their getting a little too ghetto in the details.

    Kind of disappointed in BMW. They didn’t even have a 1 SERIES to check out.

    Boy does BMW attract the douche crowd in these days. Massive douche revving of their over modded BMW’s in and around the LA Convention Center. Its a put off to the brand. I seriously didn’t enjoy BMW this year. The blond BMW rep lady was so condescending. The brothers at the desk were cool though. But douches salivating over the 5 and 6′s was seriously annoying.
