"DRIVEN: G02 BMW X4 xDrive30i – A coupe with grace?" Desirability. Rational minds dictate that needs precede wants, though that hasn’t stopped luxury goods from doing a roaring trade. The same applies to automobiles; the car-buying public seems to have little reservation in paying a premium for a coupe that is otherwise very similar – identical, even – to the standard four-door model it is based upon.
And thus, the rationale for continuing what has become a niche within a niche – a coupe borne of SUV (SAV, in BMW-speak) roots – is justified, which brings us to the second-generation BMW X4, codenamed G02.
The X4 nameplate is a very recent addition in the grand scheme of BMW things, having made its debut in 2014 as the junior model to the BMW X6, which brought about the term Sports Activity Coupe (SAC), which is based upon the Sports Activity Vehicle that is the BMW X5. Just as the X6 is the sleeker-roofed sibling to the X5, so the X4, too, is to the X3.
The G02-generation X4 is closely related to the G01 X3, and so it’s unsurprising to find a nearly-identical front end on the X4 as on the latter. Looking further along the X4’s exterior reveals a design that is more evolutionary than revolutionary compared to the previous model, though certain cues are unmistakeable in identifying the G02 as a current-generation BMW.
This includes the ‘hockey stick’ that previously has appeared on the G11/12 7 Series and the G30 5 Series, on the X4 implied via the front quarter panel vent which joins the mid-door crease line. This and another one located higher up the vehicle’s sides lead to a pair of slim, three-dimensional L-shaped tail lights which look set to feature on future BMWs, as seen on the recently unveiled 8 Series coupe.
