Rumors on the future of BMW X4 crossover-coupe was confirmed by the president of the German manufacturer, Norbert Reithofer, in an interview given just a few days ago for the Auto Motor und Sport.
Without giving technical details, Reithofer hinted that the future BMW X4 will take a number of elements from the new X3. Thus, the supply of SAV’s (Sports Activity Vechicle) from BMW will be completed with a fifth model. In terms of length, X4 will be similar to X3, which measures 4.65 m, but will have a smaller trunk than its brother, because of the profile coupe style. In terms of engines, they will be identical for the two models.
X3 / X4 combination will achieve the already existing recipe X5 / X6. Future BMW X4 crossover coupe will have, of course, BMW’s top facilities entirely transmitted, Stop & Start system, head-up display or voice commands for various functions, navigation, rain / fog / tire pressure / light / system faulty sensors and other options as leather, wood and so on.
After the big success with the Bavarian X6, BMW pushed to consider launching a younger brother. And if lately rumors have circulated only now became official: the new X4 will be released in 2012!
Entering SUV’s market and looking to handle even the coupe segment, BMW X4 will be positioned between the X3 and X6, said Norbert Reithofer, the company’s number one man. The range of engines will be made of the same units found on the current X3, with power ranging from 184 hp and 306 hp.
