The BMW X5 SUV is due for replacement in 2018 and the Munich-based firm is already hard at work testing the new X5. Our spy photographers have provided some imagery of a new X5 protoype undergoing testing and they reveal some interesting design details that you can expect to see when the new X5 finally hits the road. Previous spy shots were early chassis and powertrain mules, but what you see here is the first mule with the new design.

The front-end of the new X5 has been completely redesigned and the spy shots reveal a production-ready grille and large air intakes set in the front bumper. The rear-end has also been redesigned with a new rear bumper and new exhausts. Expect this new BMW X5 to be launched a 2018 model year vehicle.
