3. BMW X4


The cool looking BMW X4 combines several interesting things: compact SUV body, sporty design with powerful engines, everyday usability, and reasonable comfort. You might think of it as an SUV coupe with four doors. The base engine has 240 hp but the 300 hp turbocharged six cylinder is optional. The base equipment is pretty good with leather interior and heated seats but the base price is pretty high at $47,000.
