Premiere: First BMW X4 Commercial - Overdone or just right?
Be one of the first to see the premiere of the BMW X4 commercial. It shows a world that is constantly changing, shown as the city moves like waves and invites exploration in the X4. BMW blew their CGI budget on this commercial, creating some impressive scenes that look straight out of Inception. I was waiting for a cameo from Leo, which didn't happen. Did you like all the CGI and the custom soundtrack or does the commercial fall flat for you?
The all new X4 builds on the success of the BMW X family, is built on the X3 chassis, and generally resembles a baby X6. BMW took their successful mid-sized SAV (Sport Activity Vehicle), the X3, and chopped the top with a coupe like roof line. This gives the X4 an athletic, sporty appearance over it's more upright X3 sibling. Photos of the X4 do not do the sporty nature of the roof line justice. In person the car looks aggressive with an appeal that isn't conveyed in the photos.
X4 provides the utility and performance of a BMW SAV in a coupe package. Despite the cut roof the X4 retains reasonable rear cargo capacity, 17.7- 49.4 cu. ft., with 40-20-40 folding rear seats. Unexpectedly rear passenger room is impressive, fitting my 6'5" with an inch to spare on the roof. Leg room was tight, but not uncomfortable. In the drivers seat you're greeted with an interior, dash and steering wheel lifted from the X3. If you like the look and feel of the X3, you'll feel right at home in the X4.
