The 2014 BMW X5 is making news since some time now. We have been regular with posting about the details of the upcoming car and now, some more information of the next X5 has emerged on the cyber space.
The 2014 BMW X5 sports a fresher look that seems to have taken inspiration from many other cars in the BMW line up. The revised front end gets a new set of ‘3 series like’ headlamps that extend all the way in to the trademark kidney grille and a new bumper that features air vents that remind you of the ones on the 4 Series Coupe concept. At the back, the car gets a new set of tail lamps that seem to have been inspired by those on the X3.
On the inside, the car will become more luxurious with higher quality of materials used and will come with an updated version of the iDrive. The new X5 is bigger in size and have more spacious interiors. The car will have a seven seat layout.
Powering the new car will be the 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesels and V8 petrols. Also on the cards might be a four-cylinder turbocharged diesel and a petrol-electric hybrid. Also in the pipeline is the X5 M, the performance variant of the upcoming SUV. The M version will continue to be powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 but will have a higher power output of 570bhp.
The new X5 will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show this year and is expected to go sale towards the end of 2013.
