Exclusive: the fourth generation of the BMW X5 is already under development

The latest iteration of the BMW X5 should be with us in under two years, and the first prototypes are already in testing in the far north.

Although the current generation of the BMW X5 was only launched eighteen months ago, it would appear that the new generation is already under development, to be released in 2018. In the interim, a restyling of the current model will be offered.

On the shot caught by our photographers, it seems that the size of the radiator grill has increased again. This new generation may also boast another change: the appearance of various carbon-fibre panels, as is the case on the current BMW 7-Series.

Are you impressed by this anticipated development of a new generation?
