The future generation of the 2015 BMW X5 has been spied next to the outgoing version of the model and we can clearly see an impressive increase in size. While getting smaller and smaller engines, cars tend to increase in size these days and this can be seen in every segment. The best example is the VW Golf where in its first generation is the same size as the current Polo. But we’re not here to talk about hatchbacks and this news is about the future generation of the X5. The model in question has been spied once again and this time we can see the outgoing version next to it.

Powertrain 2015 BMW X5
Seen here in a video from Xbimmers, the M version of the third generation X5, codenamed F15, will gain a newly styled body and interior with power coming from the M5 and M6′s tweaked twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 S63Tu engine.
BMW has said that the newer S63Tu features many changes over the current X5 and X6 M’s S63 4.4-liter bi-turbo V8 including larger charge-air coolers, an optimized Valvetronic valve timing, a new cylinder head and a wet sump with an additional oil pump.
2015 BMW X5 Interior and Exterior
Judging by what has been previously spied, the X5 retains its muscular shape and will not be much larger than the current E70 X5 (based on comparison photos compared to the current X5 seen below. The overall shape, silhouette, and roofline also don’t appear to be a radical departure in the comparison photos.
We previously posted that the F15′s grilles will be larger, wider, and bolder than the current X5′s and you can certainly tell that it will be wider/larger based on the kidney grille cutout’s size and outline at the edge of the hood. The grilles now take up a larger proportion of the front fascia than the current 2015 BMW X5 and like all late model BMWs, the hoodline has been moved to above the kidney grilles.
Taking up recent design cues a la F30 3 series, the X5 headlights now connect with the kidney grilles. They don’t connect smoothly/perfectly here, but remember, the front panels and the hood on this prototype have been shifted by the crash test.
2015 BMW X5 Features and Safety
To better meet the European pedestrian safety standards, Volvo recently introduced their pedestrian airbag technology. We spot what we think may be an indication of this technology implemented on the 2015 BMW X5. In the crash test prototype spy pics above, you’ll notice a white/gray material at the windshield base which resembles a deployed airbag. How would an airbag at that position help provide pedestrians safety? Triggered by a frontal impact, the airbag deploys from below the hood at the base of the windshield and covers the roof pillars and most of the glass, while leaving a small opening for the driver to see through. The raised hood further protects the struck person by increasing the distance from the relatively flexible surface to the hard engine underneath (see Volvo’s illustration and animation below). This mechanism looks very much like what has has occurred on this X5.
