Report: Bmw X4 coming in 2014, will take on Porsche Cajun

Article by Christian A., on October 13, 2010

In order to expand its utility-vehicle lineup, it appears that Bmw is set to add an smaller X4, with a range-topping M version. The car is set to make its debut in 2014 and will carry the same design lines as the Bmw X6, but at a smaller scale. The technical part will be borrowed from the 2011 Bmw X3.

The design process will be inspired by the X6, which was inspired by the X5: the new X4 will receive the same front fascia as the X3, while the rear end will be completely new.

Its direct competitor will be the upcoming Porsche Cajun, which will be offered as a two-door initially. “This car is motivating our development department at the moment.” said a Bmw insider, when speaking about the Porsche Cajun.

Furthermore, the new X4 will also take on the C-segment four-wheel-drive model from Alfa Romeo, set to make its debut in 2012. Bmw expects a big success for this car on the United States market, and said that it will carry the same price as premium wagons.

“We see this car competing in the same price bracket as premium wagons,” a source said. “We think it will appeal particularly to U.S. car buyers.”
