• Next generation 2014 F15 BMW X5 spotted testing

      BMW is testing the replacement for the current X5 which is due in 2013 as a 2014 model. So what will be different? Well, apparently LED's will be included and a hybrid model will be a focal point. Styling will get a mild update of course and we expect BMW to play it conservative as it has with the current batch of next generation models. What we want to see is the weight drop significantly as Porsche managed to do in the new Cayenne and more diesel options for the USA.

        lol. how exactly you managed to see the styling with this stupid camo? But you are right IMO, the increased overhangs tells me it's watered down.

        The tail lights look... I dunno, JDM'ish
        The front lights look... Where the hell are the HALO's?

        The bodystyling looks more like the X3 than the X5 of old... Once the camo goes, maybe we will get a better picture (no pun intended)

        I'm just not feeling the overall shape. The outgoing X5 is definitely more "new" looking than what I can make out from these spy-shots.
