Feast Your Eyes On The 2018 BMW X4

Spyshots have surfaced online showing the new-generation BMW X4 without any camouflage and as recent images suggested, its design has been overhauled.

Two things immediately catch the eye. The first is the fact that the roofline of the X4 has been thoroughly redesigned and appears much lower and most Fastback-like.

The second are the taillights. They are more different than we had ever imagined and very thin, not unlike the Mercedes-Benz GLC and the Porsche Macan in terms of overall dimensions. To say they transform the entire look of the SUV would be an understatement.

Beyond the new rear, the latest X4 benefits from different headlights, reshaped kidney grilles and an eye-catching bumper.

Under the new skin, the 2018 BMW X4 will share the X3’s scalable CLAR architecture. As always, a host of petrol and diesel engines will be on offer with the vehicle pictured an M 40d. Others should include front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations. An X4 M with around 400 hp is also in the works.

    I guess it’s okay looking, but those rear taillights just look awkward and ugly.

    • Auf Wiedersehen

      Looks like the Merc.

      • I’mCallingYouOut

        I thought the same thing.

      • PK

        i was thinking the same. the taillights look like a e class coupe.

      • SgtBeavis

        Yup, a lot like the Merc. I thought it was exactly that until I read the title.

      • KidRed

        You mean the Merc that looks like the X6? BMW’s Bangle started this whole car/coupe/CUV/SUV thing and was scoffed at when the X6 launched 10 years ago.

        • TheBelltower

          Did Bangle start this? Man, the damage that this man has done to the industry will be visible for decades!

          • Leo76

            Not true. BMW sold more 5 series those years compared to E-class
            Just look at the numbers.

          • TheBelltower

            I know they sold well. My colleague bought one and thought it was the best thing on wheels. But the reality is, it was substantially cheaper than a comparable E class. And it was heavily discounted. BMW was looking to gain market share at the same time it was being panned as not being as good as the previous 5 series.

  • no25

    I don’t see the excitement in it. The rear looks too Mercedes-like (when it comes to their crossover coupe style). Everything else is just typical BMW. I’m sure the interior will be just as typical too.

  • OdysseyTag

    Gonna be a no from me. Besides the unflattering camera angle, the front-end has got 1 Series-syndrome.

  • I’mCallingYouOut

    ..okay I’m definitely interested!

  • Leconte Dave

    Look better than the old one

  • Rocket

    Didn’t like the old one, don’t like the new one. At least the new X3 looks dramatically improved.

  • ToniCipriani ✓pǝᴉɟᴉɹǝʌ

    Seems like you’ll see more out the back wearing a paper bag over your head than that rear window.


    no facelift indeed

  • rover10

    The egg gets even more eggy.

  • john1168

    Another ugly vehicle that doesn’t know what it wants to be.

    • Beelzaboot teriaksun

      Ya know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

      But this car is ugly as sh*t, I agree

  • Beelzaboot teriaksun

    oh my that front end is just

    Can anyone spare some bleach, for my eyes? much obliged !

  • Dennis James

    Looks like the side profile is much better now, it’s not humpy anymore. Rear end looks quite good. But the front, especially the headlights, as usual for BMW: a trembling ugly mess.

  • Olly Lupo Higgins

    All jacked up Bimmers look disgusting, and are driven by elitists. Nothing to be excited about.

  • Deckard_Cain

    The rear end visibility through that rear window must be non-existent. And it looks like the rear of a Mercedes.

  • Karl

    Good luck seeing out that back window.

  • MG force.

    horrible design!!! boring bmw

  • Marwin

    Yup, a lot like the Merc. I thought it was exactly that until I read the title.

  • Kaisuke971

    Good thing that they’ve designed a sleeker rear more reminding of what we’ve seen on the first X6, the old one was ugly. Too bad they just took the front straight out of the X3, it just doesn’t match… Facepalm on that one

  • Marcos Drawer

    One day we’ll don’t have rear window…

    • john1168

      Yup! They will just use cameras so you can see.

  • matthew brown

    Looks like the Merc.


    Back like alfa romeo STELVIO

  • Honda NSX-R

    Why would I want to feast my eyes on this ugly pos?


  • Soltys


    11:53 New BMW X4 in Southmampton

  • An Existing Person

    If I feast my eyes for too long, I might go blind.

  • CoolCat

    Another ugly vehicle that doesn’t know what it wants to be.

  • Kaido Alex

    The grille looks too big.

  • alexxx

    already new x4… seems to me the 1st one came not long ago…

  • Mark S

    Much better then the current one.

  • omg !!! ugly , very ugly !!!

  • Ermal Morina

    At the first glance,without reading the title,I honestly thought this was going to be a GLC Coupe facelift or something.It just looks to much Mercedes (as ironic as it sounds tho,when we all know this segment was created by Bmw,but still,to much Mercedes)

  • Braddo

    Wow it looks like….. the last one. Stupid design

  • Tumbi Mtika

    Try harder. The front kills any styling “mojo” it “suppossedly” has.

  • When you thought it couldn’t get uglier, BMW even made it so.

  • Mynameis Taylor

    So Bimmer hooked up with Merc and had a kid.

  • Six Thousand Times


  • Vassilis

    hahahaha what the fcuk is this! It’s horrible!

  • exeptor
  • Serhii Kniaziuk

    Sorry, but it looks like Chinese fake

  • M1

    A new BMW GLC coupe?

  • sidban

    Always doner, who buys these even numbered CUVs? To me, these are fugly.

  • James Chung

    what a copy cat job!!!!!!! there should be some major lawsuits from Mercedes-Benz in billions!!!!!!!
    bmw, definitely, is no longer original designs as they were in the 80s….the glory days of the bmw dominating the F1. bmw desperately must get their act together soon. or else…….
