Following the fast unveiling of its new large Sport Activity Vehicle, BMW has released a series of videos showing the new X5 in motion. After seeing the X5 from every angle in this video, we've come to the conclusion that the vehicle's new shape is pleasant enough, though a bit boring. Though every body panel has been redone, most people won't be able to see the changes from thirty feet away. Park a current X5 next to the new one and the differences will be obvious for sure, but without a basis of comparison the new X5 looks too much like its predecessor, in our opinion. The market will let us know whether that's a good or a bad thing when the new X5 finally goes on sale here in the U.S.
