The third generation 2014 BMW X5 is approaching its final testing stage. A new prototype was spied during one of those test trials with less camouflage than before.

For the first time we can have a better look at the front bumper as well at the shape of the headlights. Just like the new F30 3 Series, the F15 X5 will have headlights flow into the kidney grille, creating a 3D effect along with a sportier look. The front bumper will incorporate air vents as seen on some M models. The 2014 X5 will feature more flowing character lines and sculpted surfaces.

Now in its third generation, the F15 X5 will build atop the success of its predecessors and is rumored to sport a more dynamic ride. The 2014 X5 is based on the architecture of the 5 Series which provides significant contribution to weight reduction – more than 100 kilograms – despite the ever growing dimensions – along with a sportier driving experience. The lower weight also lays the groundwork for smaller engines to be used in the X5, like both petrol and diesel four-cylinder units.

The F15 X5 is expected to make its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2013.
