This isn’t the first time we have presented an article on the possibility of a BMW X4 crossover. Here at Top Speed, we made a preview of the car a long time ago, but this is the first time we can confirm that BMW is seriously considering a smaller brother for the very successful BMW X6 on the market.

In an interview with AutoCar, a source said: "We haven’t made any firm decision, however, the X6’s success shows there is a continued demand for sporty off-roaders."

It’s possible that the next X4 will share the platform with the X3 with a design inspired from both the 2001 X Coupe concept and the X6.

Under the hood, the X4 will feature the same engines as the X3, but with a few power improvements. There will be a 2-liter diesel engine that will deliver 177 hp, a 3-liter diesel that will deliver 231 hp, and the turbo version that will deliver 300 hp. The petrol engine will start from a 2-liter four-cylinders engine that will deliver 163 hp and will go up to a 3-liter turbo engine that will deliver 306 hp.

I guess this is an alternative to the X6.. just like the mazda did.. the CX9 is a big suv what they did is they made a CX7 a smaller version of CX9 and used it as an alternative to it.

Looks more appealing than the BMW X6, while it is much smaller but I guess this will be double the success of the BMW X6 on the market.
