German magazine Auto Zeitung renders the third-generation BMW X5. Due out in 2014, the new BMW X5 will feature more flowing character lines and sculpted surfaces that will broaden the design of the X family. At the front end, the new X5 will feature a more imposing kidney grille, larger and wider than in the current model. The headlights will get the LED treatment and the shape is rumored to mimic the one seen on the recently unveiled F30 3 Series sedan.

The taillights will be slightly redesigned as well. Using the layering concept seen on the Vision concepts, the T-shaped taillights add more depth to surfaces and are less wrapped around the body.

On the side, the character line is being enhanced, as we have seen on the new X3 as well. Expect to see more convex/concave shapes with 3D layering enhancing its masculine look.

The F15 platform is rumored to feature a modular design, a common trend in future BMWs, that allows the company to achieve significant savings across its lineup.

The motoring options will include both petrol and diesel units, as well as the ActiveHybrid technology with a 2.0 liter four-cylinder diesel engine. The internal combustion engine is aided by a 15 kilowatt electric motor that ads another 17 horsepower on top of the 204 already delivered by the diesel power unit.

The new BMW X5 will make its world debut in 2013 with sales commencing earlier in the year.

    If BMW trends are anything to go by, this design should be more of a revolution rather than an evolution. But then again, BMW is a pro-active company, not bogged down by convention.

    I doubt though, if they’ll put a replica F30 nose onto an X.

    yeah it is true most of us can save money on our car insurance by making few simple changes look online for “Clearance Auto” you will be amazed. In this stupid economy we all need to find ways to save.  With high gas prices where else can you save for travelling?

    Looks like a Volvo with an F30 grill. No way the X5 looks like this.

    The “artist” should have just grabbed a picture from and slapped a BMW badge on the grand cherokee.

    I hope the upcoming X5 won’t look so ugly and cheap.

    Will an X5M edition be released or is BMW scrapping the M suvs. 

    It will be very interesting to see what they do.
