2015 BMW X4 Video

Cars.com reviewer Kelsey Mays is willing to refer to BMW's crossovers as the automaker-coined "sport activity vehicles" like Chicagoans are willing to refer to the Sears Tower as the Willis Tower — he's not. Despite BMW's attempt to be different in naming its crossovers, Mays says they all look alike, and the 2015 X4 is no exception. The X4 is shorter than the X6 and offers good backseat comfort, but comes up short on cargo space. Watch the video for more.

2015 BMW X4: Up Close

X4UC1

I've never really understood the thinking behind a massive SUV trying to pass itself off as a sporty hatchback. That's what BMW's X6 tried to do, with limited success. BMW is making another go at the concept with the new 2015 X4.

After seeing the X4 in person, I'm still unconvinced this vision has legs.

Has it been a bit tough to keep up with all of BMW's new models and body styles lately? Don't worry, it's not just you. The many proliferations of the luxury automaker's vehicles seem to multiply faster than a colony of rabbits in spring. One of the latest additions to its lineup is the 2015 X4 "sports activity coupe," a smaller version of the X6 crossover.

The X4 is built off the same platform as the 3 Series and X3, and resembles those models from the front with large air intake openings and a similar headlight design. From the side, it follows the X6's silhouette, with a sleek and sloping roofline.

BMW Announces New X7 SUV

2014BMWX5

By Kelsey Mays, Cars.com

BMW announced Friday it will build the recently unveiled X4 plus an all-new X7 (and eventually the X5 plug-in hybrid) at its Spartanburg, S.C., assembly plant. The German automaker currently builds the X3, X5 and X6 SUVs there.

The flurry of SUV announcements came with few other details, particularly on the new X7, which BMW called "another all-new, larger X model." The automaker said it plans to build all X7s in Spartanburg, and will export them from there for sales overseas. Autoweek reports the SUV will seat up to seven occupants in three rows; BMW will build it off an extended-wheelbase version of the recently redesigned X5 platform, which will underpin the next X6 as well. The X7 will compete with the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, Infiniti QX80 and Cadillac Escalade. Autoweek says it will offer inline-six and V-8 engines. It should also have a plug-in hybrid drivetrain similar to the one in the forthcoming X5 plug-in, which BMW previewed in the X5 Concept eDrive at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

As part of a $1 billion investment over the next two years, the automaker says it will expand capacity at the 20-year-old plant by 50 percent, to 450,000 total cars from the current 300,000 a year. BMW shoppers here shouldn't expect to get all of those, though: The automaker says it exports around 70 percent of its Spartanburg production each year.

Hits dealerships: Spring 2014

In its never-ending quest to create as many different models on common platforms as it possibly can, BMW has now announced its latest creation: the X4 Sports Activity Coupe. Just as the X6 is a low-roofline, butched-up, sporty version of the X5 SUV, so is the X4 a similar relation to the X3 SUV. With the highest point in the roof situated over the front seats, the X4 is not meant to be a cargo hauler or an off-roader but more of a style statement like the X6.
