The Car wore a heavy camo but it did show a great new body despite it.

The next generation BMW X5 development car was spotted testing recently. Upon close inspection it was seen that the car was being tested in its own body. The body was greatly camouflaged but the camo did give away the body shape of this vehicle and it looks like it’s been given a totally new design. 

The pictures shared here show the new bumpers and boot lid design of this X5. Another car was being spotted some time earlier with a heavy weight on the roof.

It is the standard practice for automakers with vehicles which are supposed to get racks on the roof. Thus we might be looking at a rack in this vehicle when it will be finally disclosed by company. 

The next generation X5 is supposed to use the same platform CLAR (cluster architect) which is used in 7 series, according to AutoCar.

The platform is supposed to support aluminum, carbon fiber and magnesium constructions vehicles. Thus we are definitely looking for a reduced weight vehicle in this new next generation X5. It will be lightest as compared to the X5s and the xDrive35i.

There is news of a plug in hybrid to follow this X5 after this release too. It will be a performance oriented vehicle with a power of 600 plus bhp X5 M variant. This means that both of these vehicles won’t take much long to come after the reveal of one. 

Our sources have also confirmed that the next range of X5 line up will be featuring a range of four, six and eight cylinder engines. These will all be petrol and diesel variants depending on the transmission of X5. It is supposed to be launched somewhere near the launch of Mercedes rival GLE.
