The fellows at Motor Authority have posted some photos today of what they assume to be the next generation BMW X3. The test mule that was spotted at Nurburgring has a similar design as the 3 Series Wagon, but it shows a taller ride-height. Honestly, I looked at the photos and I am not really sure if that's even close to what the X3 will be.

Since the new generation X3 is still at least 2 years down the line, any spy photos that we might see at this point, might not reflect the actual product.

All we know for sure is that X3 production will be moved back to the U.S and that BMW will have a selection of engines, starting with the acclaimed 3.0 liter twin-turbo petrol, a diesel engine and a hybrid.

I will be happy to hear your opinion on these photos.

    My guess is that it’s a mule for the drivetrain. The front looks WAY to similar to the e90 3 series, particularly since it still has the chrome mustache which is likely to go away with the coming facelift.

    Not an X3 at all and can’t be.

    I don’t think this is even close to the final x3…this will have to fight with Audi Q5 and it can’t win with this simple look. PLUS it’s almost the 3series with larger wheels.
    I think the new X3 will be more like an X6 but smaller and cheaper…it MUST be like this if BMW wants to win over the competition!
    If the final X3 will look like this I will not buy it in 2010. I can’t buy this crap at 40k+ Euros!!

    As long as it comes with a turbo and is under 2 tons I’ll be happy as long as Benz doesn’t come out with a GLK AMG 63.
