BMW has reportedly confirmed plans to build an X4 crossover, according to AutoWeek. As its nomenclature suggests, the X4 will slot in between the X3 (pictured) and X5 within the automaker's lineup, so essentially, the X4 will be to the X3 what the X6 is to the X5.

Aside from the confirmation, details are slim about what we can expect from the X4. If the X5/X6 relationship is anything to go on, we can bet that the X4 will share its powertrain offerings with the X3, meaning that both four- and six-cylinder engines will be available, all with turbochargers. AutoWeek states that a high-output X4 M is likely to be produced, as well.

      If it looks like the X6 it's a guaranteed failure.

      utterly pointless, just destroying the old brand image one "sporty" crossover at a time

      BMW apparently didn't think an X6 was pointless enough, so they decided to squeeze in another, smaller, more pointless crossover SUV. Where does it end? An X5 that has been shrunk a little is an X3, an X5 that has no practicality is an X6, an X5 that has spent too long behind a shrink ray is an X1, and now a slightly shrunken X5 with (assuming the nomenclature is right) no practicality is an X4. What's next? An X2? X0? X7? Or more car/crossover crossovers like the 5 GT? Please stop this madness BMW, because inevitably Audi and Mercedes will hop on the bandwagon too, among others, and more and more crapovers will be shoved down our throats, just to satiate badge ***** soccer moms. Fine. Whatever. If you build it they will come. But don't kill the wagons as collateral, and don't assume we don't want them because Americans (and us Canadians stuck on the same boat) obviously only like hatchbacks that ride an extra couple feet off the ground. It doesn't personally matter to me, I won't be even in the new car market for at least half a dozen years, I just hate the dilution and subsequent decline of once iconic brands. /rant

      Really BMW? Are your customers clamoring for another SUV?

      Is it me or does the X3 look like a chinese knockoff of itself?

        You mean the one that is breaking all sorts of sales records? Yeah, I've lost hope.

          I could careless about sales records, and so could most of the enthusiast community. BMW has lost their charm to me and I seem to pass by them on the road unaffected by their presence anymore. It's sad, really.

      As a diehard BMW fan my response is a resounding 'meh'. Just what we need, another SUV with no cargo capacity. Call me when the new 3-series wagon launches. I'd like it with a manual and please, no chrome on the window trim (or anywhere else actually). Thank you....

      No matter what people say it will sell very well. Look X6 sales. Don't you think if X6 don't sell well they would make X4? Americans are too conservative, give them another boring wagon. People on auto blog are poor or kids that don't know anything.

        In three years, I have seen maybe five (5) X6s being driven in the US. I admit, I don't live in a wealthy part of the country, but I travel often to cities where I have to drive around, and the X6 is rare, rare, rare. So I suppose if someone buys or leases one of these abominations, they do have the rarity cachet to make them feel good.

      another unnecessary addition to the lineup. Pretty soon there will be X1-X10

        Precisely. Yet another pseudo-SUV-sports-wagon; no true 2002 replacement in market and price.

        Is your best friend's mom hot? That would explain getting $7487 a month being infront of her computer for hours (think webcam). Sadly, spam robots have neither best friends or moms, so you have been reported.
