X4 will be a new concept in a new segment in the same way as the X6 has done.
The litmus test for the compact relies on how well the BMW Compact city car will do when it takes to the market.
It's a totally alien concept but the car will work because it takes a conventional city hatch and turns it on it's head.
Identifiable as a BMW with a very unique character line that really enhances this car over it's competitors it is not a conventional hatch like the Audi A1. It's aims are to be modern , current and ooze the sporting sophistication recognised by a BMW. If the Compact is well received... expect more variants based on the concept.
I think X5 ought to be bigger model; maybe around 5 inches longer for leg room. Trust me, 5 inches longer is quite a bit. Hence, X4 will fit in between X3 and X5.
