BMW has just released images of its new Concept X4, the carmaker's second so-called Sports Activity Coupe. The five-door Concept X4 (which isn't exactly a concept—production is scheduled for 2014) is basically a luxury SUV combined with a coupe. The car will debut later this month at the big Shanghai auto show, but you can get a first look and some early details here. Check out the gallery!
