X4 F26 (On Sale 2014)
BMW has released the X4 Concept. The X4 is a baby X6 and will share the platform from the F25 X3. Engine and options will also come over from the X3. Stay tuned for more BMW X4 details as we get them.

x3 vs x4?

looking at a new x3 but curious about the x4...its supposed to be based on the x3 body and options, etc...will most of the differences be cosmetic? is it supposed to have better handling? suspension more sport like? curious as to if anyone out there is in the same boat and waiting to see the x4 prior to purchasing a x3.

mostly would use it to have fun driving with but practical in the sense of road trips, carrying my bicycles around (i like the option of inside the x3 with the mounts especially for long road trips) and just overall winter sports.

thanks!

If it is anything like the X5 VS X6 the usability wise there is no comparison. I would guess it will have a little stiffer suspension and maybe bigger roll bars to make the handling a little more snappy but otherwise I would expect it to be similar driving to the X3.

I looked at and test drove the X1 and thought it drove ok, but was very underwhelmed with it's looks. The X3 looks nice but reminds me a bit of a Honda and I wanted something that was nice looking, but handled better than a standard SUV. I like the looks of the X4 and most all of they details sound good, but I need to test drive one, then I will decide between the X4 or a 328/335...

Not sure how you decide if it is ugly without seeing one, unless you have already made your mind up...
