2018 BMW X4: There’s Too Much Mercedes Going On!

By  | 

Yes, you read the title right. The upcoming BMW X4 happens to have a design language that is typical of a vehicle from Mercedes and this is something we find hard to accept since both BMW and Mercedes-Benz share a bitter rivalry.

Being a BMW fan myself, we find it offensive for BMW to style-up the X4 similarly to a Mercedes-Benz. The picture above may not tell much but a new leak happens to expose the Mercedes on the upcoming X4.

As how you can see below, the rear of the X4 looks near identical to the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe. The positioning and the shape of the taillights is very much like how it is on the upcoming E-Class Coupe and it is something I find difficult to accept.

The similarities will make it awkward to see the BMW X4 next to the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe. Furthermore, I don’t see how the rear styling blends well with the busy-looking front of the X4. Even if the design is purely coincidental, it will be difficult for me to look at the X4 when it hits the road.
