Meet the BMW X4 Sports Activity Coupe, or the little brother of the upcoming X6, which not only previews a design language most likely seen in the second-generation X6, but also hopes to wow a new generation of BMW buyers.

To tell us more about the second Sports Activity Coupe in the BMW lineup, we interviewed Richard Jacobi, BMW Product Manager.

Like its larger sibling, the BMW X6, the X4 offers a unique and unmistakable presence on the road. BMW designers describe the X4 as a blend of style, driving dynamics and all-road capability.
