The success of the X6 SAV has convinced BMW executives to offer a smaller X4 model which will launch in 2014.

Production capacity is targeted to be from 150,000 to 240,000 units per year at BMW's Spartanburg, South Carolina plant in the United States.

The X4 will compete with the Land Rover Evoque, Porsche Macan and the upcoming Audi Q6.

The X4 will inherit the X3's range of 4- and 6-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines along with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. It is reported the 8-speed Steptronic trans will also be available.

Out on the horizon BMW's M performance division will prepare an X4 M high performance version.

Although, the exterior design has not been finalized, it is believed the X4 will simply be a smaller X6 and maintain the X6's 2-door coupe-like profile.

The X4 will be a huge hit that's for sure, yet hopefully will not look like that.

Actually, looking at the aggressive front bumper, this looks more like a X4 M or an M Sport than a standard version!

I don't need it but every company need it, so they can sell it, and earn money, so they can use that money for many stuff.

Actually no. It's all to do with platforms. The Q6 will be based on the Q5 which the X3 competes with, thus its derivative, the X4 will compete with the Q6. If Audi ever made a Q8, it would be an X6 competitor
