The BMW X4 will make its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show. Ahead of the show, BMW engages bloggers from around the world to introduce their latest vehicles, and to give an early look before the show’s doors open.

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).

The design of the X4 stands out with its 3D kidney grilles and “squared” circular headlights. 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 rear, the elegant coupe style roofline makes the car appear longer and more dynamic.

For the concept, BMW chose a new color: Long Beach Blue. The F26 X4 will come to market next year.
