BMW X4 xDrive35i X Line Review
X-ssing paths

Introduction, Exterior

Let me say that when I drove the current X3, I was blown away. Not only did it haul a decent amount, its dynamic abilities are far beyond what its body type and dimensions suggest. For the most part, it felt like a hopped up 3-series with the same dynamic prowess as one would expect of BMW’s best selling sedan but in a mid-size SUV.

The marketing boys in Munich must’ve seen its potential enough to apply the X6 formula to it. Applying a flamboyant roofline and calling it a Sport Activity Vehicle. In hopes that it would generate the same success as the X6 did.



The current X3 looks the part of a proper brutish mid-sized SUV that mixes equal parts elegance and broad shouldered toughness. But what the design chaps hoped for the X4 is the elegance of a classic coupe.

No doubt the X4 bears more than a passing resemblance to the X6 but then again, the X6 wasn’t particularly pretty either. So we can’t quite decide if the X4 looks good or not. But what we do know is that BMW seems to have just plonked a new roof on the X3 and gave it a new badge.

Take the roof away and it looks nearly identical to the X3 save for the redesigned taillights.

These guys are fast, responding the very next day with offers and more importantly higher than what was offered by the dealer whom I am buying my car from.

Yazz is very professional. He advised me on when to sell the car and checked in with me later. His dealer, Sam, was awesome. An understanding and kind man. He went the extra mile and accommodated our timing.
