The upcoming 2014 BMW X5 has been again spotted testing. We have been closely following the updates related to the next gen car and recently leaked pics showed how the upcoming car would look like. However, the test mules of 2014 X5 continue to sport a heavy camouflage.
The upcoming generation of the X5 will come with an all new styling that seems to have taken several design cues from other cars in the BMW’s product portfolio.
As can be seen in the leaked pics appended here, the front fascia gets a new set of headlamps that seem to have been inspired by those of the 3 Series sedan. These headlights extend all the way in to the trademark kidney grille. The air vents on the bumper remind us of the ones on the new 4 Series concept that was showcased recently. At the rear, the new X5 gets a new set of tail lamps that seem to have been inspired by those on the X3.
On the inside, the car will be more luxurious than the outgoing model. The interiors will be put together using 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.
