Production version out in 2014.

A recent report indicates that BMW will introduce the X4 in January at Detroit Motor Show.

It will be presented in concept form that will be followed in 2014 by the production version. Known internally as F26, the new X4 will use the same platform as the X3 and will cost less than the X5. AutoWeek is reporting that it will be 4.65 meters (183 inches) long, the same length as the X3 (F25).

The styling differences between the X3 and X4 will be along the same lines as the differences between the X5 and X6. A swooping roofline is expected, along with an updated front fascia and an angled one-piece tailgate. The baby Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) will feature BMW’s latest design language mixed with the design lines seen on the X6.

Power will be provided by the same engines found on the X3, with four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. At the end of 2014 BMW might decide to launch the more potent X4 M with a 6-cylinder twin-turbo gasoline engine, the one that will power the upcoming M3. There also might be an X4 M with a tri-turbo 3.0-liter diesel engine.

The 2013 BMW X4 will be manufactured at the Spartanburg factory located in South Carolina.

well, one should read the text under the photo to understand that this is a CGI, obviously using the X6 rear end, and not an official photo of the final product

I'm no bmw-expert, but I cannot see the difference between this and an X6.

It's smaller. The X6 (E71/72) is built on the X5 (E70) platform and the X4 (F26) is built on the smaller X3 (F25) platform. Although I don't really have a use for something like this, I think it will sell quite well.
