The 2016 BMW X4 marks the second year of production for this so-called "sports-activity coupe." That's BMW's term, mind you, not ours. What does it mean? Well, in practice, it refers to an existing BMW crossover: in this case, the exemplary X3, which has undergone some serious cosmetic surgery, emerging as a beefy hatchback with a rakish fastback roof line. You lose some cargo and passenger space in the deal, but you theoretically gain some style and sportiness. Naturally, you have to pay more, too.
