Another day, another new BMW spied. Sometimes it feels like Bimmer is developing so many new models that in the future, every buyer will get their own unique car. The latest one spied is the upcoming BMW X4 that was launched as a concept nearly a year ago. The Bavarians still see a need to camouflage the rear end of its prototypes, though.

As you can see, the production version is hewing very closely to the concept. If you peer around the camo, the headlights have the same shape, but the foglights are a new addition. The rear roofline seems quite similar to concept, too, but the back end is still somewhat more mysterious because the masking and dirt hide a lot. Still, it doesn't seem like the production model is going to be radically different from the concept based on the previous test cars we spied in the past. It also strikes us as very similar in size and form to the already available 3 Series Gran Turismo, with which it is expected to share a great deal.

Our wait might not be very long to see the midsize German CUV undisguised, because the X4's debut is rumored for the New York Auto Show on April 16 with a reveal as early as March 14.

      Seriously, how many models does that make for BMW? Dealers better have some jack for the car lot.

      Wait I thought 4 meant two doors?... BMW in 15 years, "lets consolidate our models, 4 and 3 series will be just a 3 series"

        Well, BMW is bringing out the 4-door 4 Series as well.

      That's ugly as sin. Then again, I'm not a big hatchback guy. I don't like the X6, either and this thing reminds me of that model.

        Don't worry, it's ugly. Ugly is ugly no matter the guise.

        To make profit leasing to the insecure who want the nameplate and think this might mark them as "unique."

      Ok... enough. BMW has jumped the shark with this one. They used to be a nice little niche company. Now they have lost all self respect and cannibalized their own offering. Who is driving their ship?? Don't they realize their rudder is broken? Sad. It is hard to get excited about them anymore.

        BMW jumped the shark some time back, IMO.

      I guess BMW didn't learn their lesson with the poor-selling, hideously ugly x6. Why do some automobile manufacturers -- BMW and Honda -- think people want 4-door sedans with no rear head room and no utility volume? They should call cars like the x4 and x6 'crossunders.'

      I don't understand these "cars". This whole genre feels like a fad who's fifteen minutes never happened.

      Nowadays it's only the badge that sells. From the proper, simple and mechanical ultimate driving machines in the 90s to the ultimate poseur grocery getters with so many numbers in their nomenclature I've really lost count.

        The Eagle was more attractive.

        No kidding! One fan has conveniently done a side-to-side comparison between the Eagle SX/4 and the X6: http://www.supafly.com/images/journal/bmw_X6_amc_Eagle.jpg
