The all-new third generation of the BMW X5 SUV isn’t due to make its public debut until September’s Frankfurt Motor Show. The new BMW X5 is bigger than the car it replaces due to X3 being made bigger. The X3’s size was increased to make room for the smaller X1 SUV.
The new car will have a more upright nose than its predecessor with a more prominent, larger version of BMW’s trademark kidney grille. The interior will be more spacious thanks to larger doors, a longer wheelbase and longer-looking roof. It might even have a seven seat option this time around.
BMW’s interior has always been exquisite but the new X5 will even improve that by using better materials and tech features like selectable dampers, a large widescreen display for the internet based infotainment system and iDrive. BMW X5 engine range will include, 3.0 litre six cylinder diesel and eight cylinder petrols. A petrol electric hybrid is also a possibility. You can expect to pay around £45,000 when the new X5 is launched at the end of 2013.
