Report: BMW not denying X4 development, M edition could be a possibility


It’s been a while that we’ve been hearing about a BMW X4, a smaller X6, that could be in the works. However, many of you may wonder “why” since when BMW introduced the X6 many were quick to criticize the awkwardly shaped crossover.

It just so happens that BMW has sold 80,000 units of the X6 worldwide and if current sales trends keep up, BMW is on its way to sell more than 100,000 units by the end of the year. That has the higher-ups in BMW thinking if they can milk the market with smaller, more affordable version of the crossover.

According to AutoCar, BMW executives aren’t denying that an X4 is on the way and with the recently introduced 1-Series M Coupe, many can dream of a M version of the X4. A BMW manager told AutoCar that the 1-Series M Coupe’s 350-hp 3.0L twin-turbo 6-cylinder could be a big hit in the U.S., if nowhere else.

We’re liking the idea – how about you?
