We’re continuing our collaboration with Promotor.ro and today, we are able to show you some renderings of the next and second generation 2010 BMW X3.
Now, before we start digging into the computer generated images, we would like to remind you that these photos are simply a personal interpretation of the new X3 and DO NOT reflect the final product.
Why do we say that? Well, as you can see, it takes many design cues from the yet-to-be revealed BMW X1. While the front-end has an unique identity, the rear-end design is most likely too close to the X1 lines.
Now what do we believe we got right? The overall shape and dimensions are in line with what we heard in the past: almost the same size as the first generation X5, more rounded corners and lots of dynamic lines on the sides. After all, the X3 will move up in size to make space for the upcoming X1.
At the front end, the flat nose reflects all the changes in the European Pedestrian Regulations. The larger kidney-grille is also in-line with the recent BMW design language and that’s something that the spy photos clearly indicated. A more aggressive bumper is needed also, so we hope we got that part right.
Now the headlights, honestly, pretty tough to tell what BMW is hiding underneath their funky camouflage, but looking at this spy photo, the overall shape we have here might be close to the real deal.
So, that’s what we have so far and we agree with you, a lots of “might” and “probably” in this article, but we worked with what we had and wanted to share them with you.
Update: Yes, we’re aware that it’s close to the X1 and we mentioned that, they’re simply just some renderings, same as we have seen the crazy 3 Series with CS Concept shapes, new 5 Series from the 7 Series body, etc….
