The X4 is more stylish than an X3 by a large margin, but those looks come at a cost.
We like the X3's relative versatility, but can see how some may would be willing to trad that cargo space for better looks.
The Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class coupe is a natural competitor here, and we actually prefer the Merc's looks—only just.
Porsche's Macan makes a compelling offer, but its price can run into six-figure territory for a fully decked turbo.
Audi's SQ5 is just as brisk, but the X4's fastback roof is an obvious break between the two.
The Range Rover's Evoque isn't nearly as quick, but is equally stylish.
