All-new BMW X5 Spied With Less Disguised Front

BMW is currently hot weather testing their next-generation X5 in the Spain and to get some more air into the cooling system, they have removed some of the disguise from the front, revealing the new front grill design. Rest of the car is still heavily disguised, though it does look larger than the current model.

Rumour is that a new third row seats will be added to the next X5.

Other bigger rumoured updates include new axles that weigh 150kg less than the current ones. Engine options will include a wide range of six- and eight-cylinder units. Also four-cylinder engines are going debut in the new X5 – one petrol and one diesel. A hybrid version could be also in the works, featuring the ActiveHybrid 5’s powertrain.

New X5 is expected to debut in the second half of 2013 with sales starting soon after.
