It seems like automakers just can’t keep their vehicles under the wraps. Today, we have leaked images of the third-generation BMW’s X5 Sports Activity Vehicle that have been leaked on the internet prior to the debut at 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show in September. This high performance SUV is expected to be released into markets later this year.
The new look of high-end SUV brand, follows the trend of younger siblings. The front-end styling borrows heavily from the current 3-series, including the narrowed headlamps and prominent kidney grille. The large air vents at each corner of the front bumper are lifted from the recently unveiled 4-series Concept Coupe. The foglamps positioned high, just below the main influences are the small X1.
From the side, the X5 remains with its typical brutality mixed with elegance, but now the adjective “dynamic” may also be used, as the front of it was apparently lower and long. The outline doesn’t look that different from the current model, but the overall shape brings the new X5 stylistically closer to the smaller X3 and X1 crossovers.
At the rear, the most striking change is the lanterns, also inherited the X1, look more “brave”, giving sportiness to the rear of the big guy. While the rear lights are the same units fitted to the current X3.
On the inside, there is not much to discuss: the caps and finish are perfect. The leather found in every detail of the interior contrasts with shiny materials for darker shades. The design shows no news, except for the large LCD screen on the top panel also speculated to be offered with a third-row seating option.
