The fresh face of the next BMW X5
, codenamed E70, is clearly apparent on these new spy shots
from WorldCarFans. The trademark kidney grille appears to have grown in size and gained three air intakes in the lower bumper and another immediately below the leading edge of the hood. The headlights have also been resculpted to more closely resemble the outline of those found on the new 3-Seiries. In addition, WCF is reporting the X5
will grow in length by 16 cm and width by 6 cm, and you know what that means... third row time, baby! This shoots to hell our previous theory
might debut an even larger SUV in Paris to take on the Mercedes-Benz
GL. Despite the girth, an M-edition is still expected sometime after the X5 debuts in October.
