2017 Borgward BX5
Once an important player on the European market thanks to its affordable cars and large trucks, German brand Borgward was revived after a 54-year hiatus at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. But, against all rumors and despite its past, Borgward returned to the market with a seven-seat SUV. Dubbed BX7, the brand’s first modern vehicle is a daring proposition. Built and developed in cooperation with Chinese truck manufacturer Foton, the BX7 is aimed at the premum market and Borgward hopes to compete against the likes of BMW X3 and Audi Q5. Although final production version and info about pricing and availability have yet to be unveiled, Borgward is already planning to showcase a second SUV.
According to our skilled paparazzi, who just sent us a batch of fresh photos depicting a camouflaged crossover, Borgward is readying a smaller hauler for the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. It is called the BX5 and will slot right under the BX7 and above a smaller, future mini SUV to be launched as the BX3. The BX5 is part of Borgward’s plan to join the market with a three-model lineup and it seems that the German-Chinese venture is more serious than we imagined.
Details as to what the BX5 might bring to the market are slim, but there are rumors that provide strong hints about this mini SUV, and that’s exactly what we will discuss in the speculative review below.
