BMW works on new X-Style model?

Although the new BMW X6 Sport Activity Coupe has turned out to be a very successful model, it may be considered too large for the current market demands. For that reason, BMW has decided to bring a new, smaller model that will be built on the new generation F25 X3 platform. This vehicle will be the new X4 model (pictured here) and will be a coupe version of the future X3 SUV.

The car is internally known as "X-Style" and will be based on the future X3 , but will feature the same coupe roof line at the rear-end and a muscular body as seen in the X6. However, BMW will drop the conventional tailgate of the X6 and will offer a two-way hatch similar to the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo .

The future model will feature the platform, drivetrains, and engines of the X3. BMW will show a concept version in the near future, with a production version to follow after it, but not before 2015.

A new model? It doesn’t look a fresh model for me. Well, I just only see its platform ordinary and simple. However, I would still want to see another updated news about this.

This X-Style Model really looks so impressive and classy. I just wait for another latest news about this before I can give further opinion about this one, but I found that it is already looks great on its color.

Hmm, that car looks neat though I have a feeling that this x-series is a 4x4 for all terrain.

Except the VQ35 is overrated in the power department, doesn’t have a roller follower valvetrain, and has enormous unsprung weight, and only has a 5 speed automatic.

OK. It looks neat. Safe. Very much so like the new 7-series. I would venture to say they look a bit more professional...serious. This is much like a 3/4ths version of the 7-series as far as size goes. Can’t wait to see the M5 version. I’d take this over the 5-series GT any day.

Took what 10, 11 years since the famous "land shark" advertising campaign, slang term is "flamed edges"? But I can see Chris Bangle’s ultimate vision finally realized in this car.
