The X4 competes in a world of good-looking SUVs that aren't as practical, nor as efficient, and cost a lot.
In other words, congratulations on your choice of style over substance.
The X3 is a practical competitor, mostly because it has more usable space and fits more people.
The GLC Class looks the part, but lacks the performance punch found in the xDrive35i.
Porsche's Macan is on the other end of the spectrum by offering far more performance, but with an unusable backseat.
The Audi Q5 is a reasonable alternative, but nowhere near as fun to drive without opting for the SQ5.
The Range Rover Evoque is tempting, but its turbo-4 feels gutless at points.
