2019 BMW X5 (G05): first official pictures
New BMW X5 2019, and to be more precise, it is the fourth generation, as suggested earlier, will be presented at the Paris motor show this autumn. But the fact that the full package of high-quality pictures of BMW will release in early summer, out of the question. Not waiting for? You get to sign it!
In the foreign segment of the Internet appeared the first high-quality pictures of BMW X5 generation G05 (one of the first in Russia to put a exclusive HD photos of the new X5 on the desktop of your computer, I have already installed):
The journalists of “auto review” turned out to be ahead of the rest and one of the first published some of the first shots of the BMW X5 new generation.
Studying the photos, we could not say with certainty whether they are official photos real crossover BMW or a cleverly done photoshop rendering photo. Assumptions in the comments of various automotive publications are also fundamentally different. Someone decided, that before us the real car, others decided that this is a very good figure. One day, as the mystery was solved – BMW, accidentally or deliberately, thrown into the international network the Internet photos news.
Awesome case, almost five months before the premiere!
This familiar style
External style trends, as seen in the photos stud evolutionary continuation of the previous generation X5 interspersed with elements of the current (updated) the BMW X3 and the latest model of the upcoming BMW X7, which we saw in concept form.
In General, this approach to sculpting doesn’t mean that Munich has not presented a fresh design, offering a new volumetric dual grid in guess’s signature style, huge, no, enormous, completely dominating at the front of the SUV. Many ornate folds stretched on the sides, enlivening design, and tail lights steel surround, with a narrow squint led optics.
The interior of the G05 has also changed
Evolutionary history continues inside. The interior of the X5, got blotches of buttons a variety of systems, from control climate control, to “krutilki” the inclusion of all-wheel drive system.
But most of the functions still went on to two large screens, a big one– for the driver, another touch – 12.3 inch infotainment system. Through the last you can customize not only the map and rewind the playlist to a favorite song, but watch the weather and adjust the SUV by itself.
More, but lighter
In addition to the design, luxury SUV G05 is built on a clustered architecture CLAR. Platform identical to the one we saw on the flagship BMW 7-Series sedan. It includes a new suspension, with double wishbones at the front axle and the five levers on the rear.
According to preliminary data, in the captions to the pictures, the dimensions of the new X5 make 4,945 mm long, 2,004 mm wide, 1,791 mm in height, with 2,975 mm wheelbase. The SUV has been lengthened by 36 mm to 66 mm wider and 19 mm above the previous generation. The wheelbase increased by 42 mm.
Despite the increased size, which will certainly improve the capacity (cargo area covers from 645 to 1860 liters) and space for passengers of the second and third row, it is expected that the model will be significantly lighter than the current generation car. Some data indicate decrease in weight up to 200 kg.
Four, six and eight-cylinder engines
In the power unit we can say the following: They will borrow from the latest model BMW 5-Series. 2019 BMW X5 eventually will offer a wide range of 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines, 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine and the 4.4-liter eight-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit. Additionally, you can purchase a 2.0-litre four – and 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbodiesel.
The most powerful choice on the X5 M will be monstrous power 4.4-liter twin turbo V8, 592 HP (441 kW / 600 HP), combined with all-wheel drive xDrive.
