UK-based outlets report that the 2014 New York Auto Show will host the world premiere of the BMW X4 and the X3 facelift.

The X4 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). Design wise, the BMW X4 follows the same trends as the newly released BMWs, a front-grille with a 3D kidney look as well as the “squared” circular headlights.

The F25 X3 LCI will bring subtle exterior and interior updates, similar to the F10 5 Series LCI.

Spy photos show changes to the front apron and the inner workings of the headlights. The exterior mirrors are also getting the built-in side indicators like other newer BMW models.

The BMW X4 and X3 are produced at the Spartanburg plant in South Carolina.
