RM Car Design uses their Photoshop skills to pen the next-generation BMW G05 X5. With the next X5 being still four years out, the design speculations are simply just speculations, but nonetheless it’s interesting to see what the design could look like.
The images below show an X5 featuring shorter overhangs than the current F15 model and with a larger bonnet. The front-end stands out with its massive 3D-sculpted grille inspired by the Vision Future Luxury Concept and slimmer, more elegant laser headlights. The lower end of the front fascia takes a play from the 7 Series playbook with chrome elements and LED lights embedded in the large air curtains.
The rear-end stays closer to the design of the current model, but looks more refined, softer and more premium. The roof’s subtle spoiler gives the X5 a more slopping roofline for a sportier look.
With BMW’s clever new Carbon Core technology, it’s possible that BMW is able to create a much smaller and lighter chassis while simultaneously growing interior passenger space. If the wheelbase will be shortened, this could help with handling and make the X5 feel more nimble.
Next generation G05 X5 is due out in 2020, but in the mean time, BMW will unveil an X5 facelift in 2017.
