The 2014 BMW X4 has been spied undergoing  testing on the Nürburgring.

Set to go on sale early next year, the model was previewed by the X4 concept and follows in the footsteps of the larger X6. As a result, it eschews the X3's traditional styling for a sportier shape that has a more aggressive front bumper and a coupe-like profile.

Engine options will likely be shared with the X3, so choices could include a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder with 240 bhp (179 kW) and a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six with 300 bhp (224 kW) and 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque. There could also be a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine with 181 bhp (135 kW) and 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque.
