Everyone say congratulations to the BMW X6; it's going to be a big brother.

The first photos of the BMW Concept X4 showed up online this morning, promising what is sure to be a hit among people who value style more than practicality in their SUVs. We can expect it to be "coupe-roofed" version of the X3, just like the bigger X6 is to the more practical, traditional SUV-like X5.

No details came with the photos this morning, although BMW chief executive Norbert Reithofer told Carscoops that the car will have a mix of four- and six-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines just like the X3 it's based on. It will also most likely be built in Spartanburg, South Carolina along with most other X-vehicles.

Frankly, this shouldn't be too surprising, given BMW's recent explosion of models beyond their traditional range, like the 4-Series coupe, the 5-Series GT, and the 3-Series GT.

I have just one question, BMW: if you have passengers in the back of the X4, where are their heads supposed to go?

Nice job, BMW. This looks like complete SHIT. Honestly. When will you manufacturers realize that the Accord Crosstour/ZDX/5 GT/X6 are all heavy useless pieces of shit?! They're not even roomy enough inside to be of any use and the rear headroom is a joke. Visibility is poor, these things do not get great gas mileage and they're pricy. You'd have to be a complete moron to even consider buying one of these things. There is no wisdom in this; it does not have the courage to go off-road, and while they might have power, all that weight is certainly not helping.
