The much rumored BMW X4 has been confirmed for production by none other then BMW CEO Norbert Reithofer. The X4, a baby BMW X6 will bring the sports coupe SUV concept down market in both size and price. The production code will be F26 and will likely share power plants, drive train and suspension with the X3. You can think of the X4 as a coupe version of the X3.

In an interview with German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, Norbert Reithofer, BMW CEO, goes on record about the upcoming X4 which will be built under the internal codename F26, so the X4 will hit the market pretty soon.

According to the German report, the CEO says the BMW X4 will be approximately 4.65 meter long (15.26 feet) and feature a similar design layout to the BMW X6

A smaller, (possibly) more sports oriented X6 sounds like a fun car! Who's going to check out the X4 as a potential next car or second car?
I might consider this one if it has a hatch that can swing wide open enough so,I could load my 80# Honda snowblower into it for service.
would go with less than max wheel size as our roads aren't the best. 17 inch rims work nicely on my 335xi
