BMW X Series

BMW X Series

Posted on by Myles 1

BMW just loves to blur the line between car and SUV. With SUVs already based on the 3 and 5-Series , the German company may be readying two SUV to spawn from the 1-Series . The four-door X1 has already been given approval for production, and now the two-door X2 may be on the way.

If the rendering from CAR Magazine is accurate then the sporty looking X2 will be much like a little brother to the mixed-identity X6 . It’s a little hard to admit but there is some attraction to a sporty coupe on a tough 4x4 platform. It’s kinda like how a girl gets hotter after she punches you in the face.

With the new X6 BMW is prepared to conquer new terrain - a Crossover mixing with SUV, sports car and Coupe. Spy photographs caught the X6 prototypes on testin in Bavaria. X6 shows more powerful dimensions comparing to the X5. With almost the same hight as the X5, the X6 stands clearly more broadly on the road. Four sumptuously dimensioned exhaust pipes dismiss the life expressions of the burn aggregates. The X6 will be powered by the strongest engines from X3 and X5. Diesel engines will (...)

The larger second generation moves farther from the X3, with third-row seating, refined ergonomics, and an improved four-wheel-drive system, Dynamic xDrive.

BMW is preparing a new model based on the X5: the X6 that has taken the philosophy of the Mercedes Mercedes CLS four-door-coupe, utilizing a sloped roof-line and and tauter packaging in the name of style. It was first speculated that the model is the V5, but the V5 is supposed to be a uniquely space- efficient vehicle in the guise of Mercedes’ R-Class, and this prototype doesn’t seem to fit that description. BMW appears to be making the right move in putting the X6 ahead of the V5 in the (...)

The second generation X5 looks like it carries on with the main characteristics from its predecessor. The new model has been developed under the code-name E 70. The main difference is that the newcomer is about 16 cm longer and 6 cm wider than the current model. It is thus providing enough room for a third row of seats. Like with all the other modern luxury off-roaders, also the new X5 can seat up to seven passengers, which quite obviously has become a must. Power is expected to come from (...)
