The new BMW X5 has just been leaked on the interwebs.

The first images show the front and rear of the third-generation X5 and apparently the pictures are taken from a Web configurator. We expect the full photos to be unveiled sometimes in early summer with production beginning in August.

As we have previously reported, the third-generation F15 X5 uses the car architecture from the 5 Series which will make a significant contribution to weight reduction of more than 100 kilograms – despite its larger dimensions. The lower weight is also laying the groundwork for some weaker base engines.


We anticipate a series of four-cylinder engines to be used, both the gasoline and in diesel engines.

Stay tuned for more info!
