Arrow Third Gen. F15 X5: Spy Shots, CGIs and Discussion Thread

The design for F40 X5 to be released in late 2013 as 2014 model is officially approved by BMW. F40 X5 will introduce some new technologies. F40 X5 is also coming out close to 2015 EPA regulations which means better mpg for the new X5. What we know(thanks to member Scott27 and some others):
  • Modular aluminum chassis
  • Sporty styling
  • Lighter in weight than E70 X5
  • Base X5 with 2L 4-cylinder (in addition to ActiveHybrid) engine.
  • More leg room than E70, which also means, you know what
  • |- or "sideways T" shaped taillights(sort of similar to F25 X3).
  • Hoffmeister kink somewhat similar to F25 X3
  • Some BMW Concept CS design elements
  • Sculpted surface and body lines (this is becoming common in the auto industry e.g. new Hyundai Sonata)
  • Wide body appearance and 3D look wheel arches.

I trully hope it is not going to be that.... I hate how lower window line gets curved up - makes it hard for kids to see outside, thus leads to motion sickness...

Looks like an X6 built by Mazda.

Appreciate all of the advanced info though.

I like how the current E70 has large windows all around for better visibility for passengers. I also like the front of the current E70 as it doesn't try to be overly sporty yet it retains some masculinity as well as being classy. The concept pic however looks sort of blend. It does look sportier but not really inspiring. Maybe Bangle was better at some things.

Plus, I do hope they keep the huge side mirrors that are on the E70s.

I believe there are Euro safety laws causing the huge side mirrors, so they are here to stay.

Epacy is an unknown quantity at this point
I like some aspects of it. Like the more aggressive styling.
