BMW is working to introduce the facelifted model of the X5 SUV. In the latest development, a test mule of the car was found testing in its early prototype stage.

As per the spy images, the vehicle is expected to come with revised exterior features and updated interiors. It is also likely to offer a petrol and a diesel engine.

Here are more details.

As per the images, the upcoming BMW X5 will feature a redesigned body, housing a kidney grille with vertical slats, large air vents, and a sculpted bonnet.

It will also sport sleek headlights, tail lamps, fog lights, and DRLs for lighting.

On the sides, the car will come flanked by roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, body-colored ORVMs, and multi-spoke alloy wheels.

It will also get a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment console and a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel called BMW Live Cockpit Professional display.

All standard safety options for passengers will be provided.

Official launch and pricing details of the BMW X5 (facelift) are unknown as of now. However, it will carry a premium over the present X5 car which carries a starting price-tag of Rs. 75.50 lakh and goes up to Rs. 87 lakh.
