Default 2019 BMW X5 (Bimmer)

Holy cow, those are some HUGE side windows. Grille seems less gigantic here than on the X7.

Yeh, the side windows do look large. Looks typical BMW dull with an awkward looking (rear door) side creaseline.

I like the airiness of the greenhouse. The big nostrils are OK for an SUV. It really is too bad that it has NONE of the X2's flair. This will be presentable, nothing special for looks, and barely distinguishable from the current one when all is said and done.

Odd how we did not have a thread, shows how excited people are for the car.

I don't recall seeing much info about the next-gen X5 previously, so maybe BMW has just been exceeding good about hiding their mules? ;) Kind of sad, though, b/c I consider the X5 to be one of the founding members (along w/ the RX and M/GLE) of the modern mid-sized (and now rather large) luxury SUVs.

While the large windows look a little odd, I applaud BMW for giving this car good visibility. I'm tired of all the slit-like windows on most modern cars.

Nope, it's been spotted routinely for at least a year, maybe two. I think people saw/posted pics of the X7 and, given how it's essentially identical (save for length), figured that was enough.

It's an unusual reversal of the trend over the past 20-30 years for ever higher waistlines and ever smaller greenhouses, but to my eyes at least, it looks a little bit odd. I think I've grown accustomed to each successive generation of new cars to have smaller and smaller side windows.
