Our spies have managed to take a few photos with the BMW X4 production version which will be revealed before the end of the year.

BMW previewed the X4 in April at the Shanghai Motor Show with a fairly attractive concept. The production version will be shown online this year, ahead of a public debut scheduled for January 2014 at NAIAS in Detroit.

Reports say the X4 will be offered upon launch in 28i and 35i versions along with a more frugal 20d model. The interior cabin will probably mirror the latest X3 but it's believed more M Performance parts will be offered for the mini X6.
