2018 BMW X4 unveiled: new swept-back SUV sets sights on Evoque

Overall a big thumbs down from me. Every aspect looks worse. I can just about live with the front end and arches but the back end looks completely out of place. the interior looks awful. The new tech seems to be the only improvement in my eyes.

What does everyone else think?

Errmm......No.

Not sure about that revised rear profile at all.  Probably need to see a real one.  I suspect rear visibility will be as cr8p as an Evoque!  The Mk1 looks better proportioned.

I quite like it. I also like that it still has a CD player! :))

Not for me.
It look's like it can't make it's mind up 4x4 or saloon.

Slightly better looking sibbling  to the Wolseley 18-22...

Had a passenger ride in one that my father took for a test drive.......somewhat vague in the handling department IIRC.
