BMW X4 Concept pictures have emerged all around the web. Luckily for you, we also have a few. The X4 is essentially a “coupe SUV” in the mould of the X6, but smaller at about 4.6 metres in length. It will be based on the existing X3 but will feature a different design that’s more athletic and sportier.

X4 follows BMW’s new badge naming philosophy that says sedans can retain odd-numbers while coupes go with even ones. Hence the new 4 Series Coupe for example.

So in terms of engines, we’ll be seeing the same sort of thing as you find in the X3, meaning 2.0-litre turbo pulling out 135kW and 180kW, the 3.0-litre turbo worth 225kW or a bit more and some diesels in the mix. Word is also rife of an X4 M, which will topple 300kW.

The car will be unveiled later this month at the 2013 Auto China in Shanghai. We’ll probably see the real thing deal at the 2013 Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) in October as well.
