BMW X5 2018, spy photos of its new generation at the Nürburgring


After seeing the future BMW X5 in the winter in scandinavian, the new generation of the model bavaro continues its testing. On this occasion, it has gone up to Nürburgring for the development of its chassis, and we’ll show you in these spy photos. As usual, the Nordschleife is one of the best test benches in the reality, even for the large SUV.

BMW X5 2018 continues with a development that is still in a phase fairly early and early. Their new generation will arrive approximately towards the end of 2017 or beginning of 2018, so it still has almost two years ahead. This testing unit maintains a camouflage comprehensive and full in its body, but despite this, we can sense some features of its exterior design.

BMW wants the next X5 keep one of the hallmarks of the brand: a dynamic performance sports, hence that it is not so strange to see how this drive wheel to the limit at the Nürburgring. So, the BMW engineers tested different settings and configurations in suspension, brakes or even engine, for example, in addition to the fatigue resistance of different elements.


For example, your front bumper is different from the current model, with air inlets in its lower portion which extend from end to end. In addition, another interesting detail is that the edge of the hood reaches the front grill, covering it partially in its upper part, of quite different form to what happens on the X5 today.

beyond the camouflage, the design of the final model of production will vary quite with respect to what we see here. With a platform more lightweight while rigid, reducing the total weight by more than a hundred kilograms, the BMW X5 2018 will have hybrid versions and a powerful – X5 M. Also present will be a good part of the technology and security features directly inherited from the new BMW Series 7.
