There's a new set of spy shots of BMW's next X5, due out later this year. Taller, wider and longer, the new X5 gets the must-have third row seating feature to compete with its upmarket SUV/CUV brethren, but carries forward most of the major exterior styling features of the previous models. The full set of spy shots can be viewed at wheels24.co.za here. For comparison purposes, we've included a similar view of the current X5 after the jump. Note the stretched C-pillar - part of the modifications to accomodate the extra row of seats.
