BMW’ s eagerly anticipated SUV, the 2018 BMW X4 will go through a lot of changes after the launch of the new generation X3 version. Here are some of the secret shots of the X4.
Eagerly anticipating the release of the 2018 BMW X4 performance SUV? You aren’t alone. But we’ve got some leaked specs and details and spy photos to tide you over until the big reveal.
The photos show a much more modern look compared to previous versions with much smoother and aggressive stance and profile. BMW’s toned the curves and sharp edges of the current model to improve the overall athleticism of the 2018 X4. Additional changes include new kidney grilles that better match the look of the headlamps. A new tailgate with the classic BMW medallion logo and the license plate has been moved lower on the back of the X4.
BMW is also working on a new generation X3 which will be much lighter by up to 100 kilograms which should substantially improve the driving experience. In addition, BMW’s design team has increased the length of the X3 body to provide passengers more room. We anticipate these changes to also make their way to the X4 platform.
The 2017 BMW X4’s strong engine options and sporty driving dynamics make it a great performer among luxury compact SUVs, but competitors offer more interior and cargo space, as well as higher predicted reliability scores. – Nate Parsons, U.S. News
It’s rumored that BMW will include plug-in hybrid technology as well as a 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine in both X3 and X4 platforms.
By 2019, it’s expected BMW will launch five new models, including new-gen models of the X-series 3, 4 and 5 as well as a smaller-platform X2 and new premium X7 to compete against Land Rover.
