Photospin noticed once again test specimens of the crossover BMW X5 new generation. Photographs appeared in a publication Carscoops.
As you know, the BMW X5 2019 will replace the platform on a clustered architecture CLAR. This platform also underpins the current generation 5-Series and 7-Series. The new framework will allow to throw 250-300 pounds of curb weight compared to the body of the F15.
The silhouette of the crossover will remain unchanged. However, the main difference between the external design, it will become much enlarged radiator grille that resembles the one that is installed in the prototype BMW X7. Also significantly change the design of the rear lights. They will become more narrow, but, as before, will be placed horizontally.
Two prototypes resembling each other, but they have different elements. So noticeable different configuration of the led daytime running lights (cilia) in the headlights. One instance shod in wheels with sporty design. Maybe he is a version from M Performance. Now she will have a different configuration of DRL.
The engine range for the new BMW X5 will be upgraded, but brand new engines are not expected. We will remind, it includes four – and six-cylinder petrol turbo engine and turbo diesel and V8 petrol engine with twin turbo. The power increase is expected from the plug-in hybrid version and X5 M. the Latter can get a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine from the BMW M5 with 600 horsepower.
World premiere of the new BMW X5 is expected at the Paris motor show in early October.
