Today, BMW informed us that the 4-Series Convertible will be the brand’s sole world premiere at next month’s LA Auto Show, and that while the X4 will be present, it will be displayed in concept (as a North American premier) and not in production form.
For what it’s worth, the actual X4 will remain faithful to the study, and if that’s not enough, our spies have chipped in with a fresh set of pictures showing the compact crossover in prototype guise having shed most of the camouflage wraps on its profile.
Designed as a smaller and more affordable sibling to the X6, which itself, will soon be replaced by a new generation model, the X4 is in essence a sportier looking but less spacious alternative to the X3, with which it shares everything under the skin, from the 110.6-inch wheelbase (2,810mm) platform to the four- and six-cylinder diesel and gasoline engine lineup.
BMW said that production of the X4 will start next year at the company’s Spartanburg plant in South Carolina, USA.
