BMW Concept X4

BMW has released the first pics of its eye-catching X4 concept car.

A blend of BMW’s sports activity and coupe vehicles, the X4 features smooth, sporty lines and futuristic detailing on areas like the wing mirrors.

The will feature 21in alloy wheels, LED headlights and BMW’s famous grille — but adds extra air vents at the front compared to models like the X6, to help keep the engine cool.

It is also longer and more rugged-looking than previous X versions, and gives the appearance of being closer to the ground.

While it looks mostly like an SUV at the front, its coupe pedigree is noticeable in the shape at the rear.

The BMW X4, which the German manufacturer dubs a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV), is set to be produced in 2014.
