BMWs typically have a shelf life of seven years but that won’t be the case for the current X5 whose successor is nearing the end of its development.
 
One of the reasons for the speedy arrival of the redesigned X5 is to streamline the production process. The CLAR-based SUVs will all be built at BMW’s plant in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Another being the current X5 is facing stiff competition from newer rivals like the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90.
 
The current (third-gen) X5 was introduced for the 2014 model year but its underpinnings are shared with the second-gen X5 on sale since 2007. This fourth-gen model, which we’re currently expecting to arrive in showrooms in mid-2018, as a 2019 model, won’t have anything in common with its predecessors.
 
It will ride on the SUV version of BMW’s modular platform that debuted in the 2016 7-Series and has since appeared in the 2017 5-Series. Referred to internally as a CLAR, short for Cluster Architecture, the platform combines lightweight materials such as aluminum and magnesium—and carbon fiber in the case of the 7-Series—with conventional steel to save weight while increasing rigidity and strength.
 
The SUV version of the CLAR platform made its debut in the 2018 X3. The platform is also pegged for an X7 full-size SUV that BMW has confirmed for launch in 2018.
 
It look like the fully redesigned forth-gen X5 will grow in size compared to the third-generation model currently on sale, which should lead to more interior space.

Behaviour shapes attitudes, and over a period of time, solidifies into beliefs.

Just hope it will not be a design one generation behind, like the new X3.  [laugh]

same same but different ....
3,5,7 and x1,x3,x5 all are small medium large from the same design ... simply copy and paste
need to wait for the next revolution concept
hopefully they got a cool revolution design in the next phase so that i can jump ship back to bimmer

Well at first glance, it does look like a Large version of X3 which is Medium n X1 which is Small by my reckoning😃

Saturday ST mentioned April. Seems it will be only petrol engines being imported n in their usual practice, higher end x20i will come first followed by x18i later.

I believe 116 n 216AT is still selling diesel though 216GT has stopped.
If not mistaken, this has got to do with the 6mths moratorium given to all ADs on 1 pollutant though I still fail to understand how come diesels like the above 2 cars still get a rebate even with the moratorium.

Anyway, point I’m making is that PML can still bring in diesel at least till End of June. But I guess it makes no sense to bring in a model for couple of mths only to discontinue it due to the VES?
