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.
2014 BMW X4 will be offered with standard rear-wheel drive and optional xDrive, while engine lineup will be taken from the X3. Examples of models include a gasoline 240 hp (179 kW) 2.0-liter, a 181 hp (135 kW) diesel and a more powerful inline-six 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo with 330 hp (224 kW).
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.
