What generation BMW X5 is better: VI or III?
Hard to remember, even harder to understand, but such automakers as BMW, once was not interested in the topic of SUVs. Simply, they did not make them.
For the Bavarian avtostroitel page has been turned, almost 20 years ago when it introduced the first generation X5 is only a couple of years after Mercedes launched the M – Series (now known as the GLE-Class), and for several years before Porsche rolled out its first urban SUV, the Cayenne. Much later, the pioneers joined Audi, with its large and powerful original Q7 SUV.
Those days are long gone. BMW, since brought to light many models: X1, X2, X3, X4 and crown for many, but not for me – the model X6. Parallel to this, there are several new iterations of the X5, which started this whole chain reaction.
Here came the moment when “Bayerische Motoren Werke” showed another updated model of her first child. Perhaps the promoters did not wait to boast of new clothes, that they decided not to wait the Paris motor show, and easily thrown in the Internet dozens of photos of my new SUV. It happened the other day. Can look in our other materials description of the new model:

Like its predecessors from Munich, the new SUV promises to be much better compared to the model it replaces in the lineup. Last but not least stylistically. So, let’s take another look at the new and compare the new X5 with the original model.
Big grille is just the beginning
The most prominent stylistic differences between the third and fourth generations of the X5 front fallcreek. Aperture of the new model with two branded “visors” was considerably higher, pieces of the bumper re-separate the lights from the intakes (approximately the same we’ve seen on models E70), the shape of the headlights themselves have not changed, but the lens shape and content have changed, which has a positive impact on the visual update.
The intakes are just huge, round DRL (daytime running lights) is gone, now under the lights integrated into the massive air intakes, shiny two transparent elongated embrasure. There is no horizontal separation of the intake between the upper and lower parts of the grill in the bumper done one big gap difficult forms.
All this gives the new model G05 a more aggressive look compared to the previous body F15.
Along the side put a bolder metallic folds, including the side you can see the relief vyshtampovki above the arches is a successful attempt to emphasize the large wheels. At the rear of side lines chopped typical arc goes up from the wheel, and in front, near the front wheel struts new proprietary “chip”, accepted view of the hole, which its predecessor was more like a hook hockey stick.
Yes, if you are not looking, throw a fleeting glance at crossover, it may seem that the novelty hasn’t changed dramatically, but this is absolutely not true. You should look to details, and you will see that the work of graphic designers was rife. Doors, door sills, front and rear fenders, bumpers. Even punch under the door handles and the door handles themselves have changed significantly.
Also note the lack of chrome on the side moldings in the form of new bodywork G05, it generally tried to use the minimum, from what angle you look at it.
If the headlights haven’t changed much in form, the rear lights of course are different, in our opinion, definitely for the better.
Rear optics completely changed shape, as if it breathed new life, new style, new philosophy if you want.
If the brake lights F15 formally took over the two previous generations, the G05 got a completely different circuit. They resemble us more about American crossovers, what about the German SUVs. A hint for one in the first place made the SUV? Maybe so.
The rear bumper incorporates a more sophisticated (in appearance) diffuser surrounded by trapezoidal exhaust pipes instead of round lackluster endings of the current model. Aesthetically, the back door also began to look nicer. She vividly and perfectly reflects the whole spirit car models.
Familiar, updated interior
The manufacturer still has not shown us much of the new X5 interior. But from what we’ve seen in the photos, the environment should be familiar to owners of current-generation X5. Resonating with style and shape of the rear doors, the dashboard retains a distinct horizontal layout to give it an expansive and spacious appearance.
As the front part of the exterior, the vents inside the cabin is more pronounced under the Central one is located in the management cluster climate system. Below, a separately hosted system of media control, “Twister” volume and radio settings. This will facilitate the manipulation settings without distraction from the road, look not to translate in the direction to understand which key you are pressing and how operate: a sound or airflow.
Larger screen infotainment display and a large screen located behind the steering wheel before the driver’s eyes play the same role.
The whole style of the new X5 gives us the image of a greatly improved model. This is especially well seen when comparing the two models side by side. And you what’s the version of the model of the SUV is liked more? Previous F15 or new G05? Vote!
