Cars of 2014: Vol.2
This is the second part of our Cars of 2014 feature. If you missed the first one, you can find it here.
New BMW X5
This is the third-generation of BMW's segment-inventing 'Sports Activity Vehicle', the X5. And even though it looks like a refresh job on the outside, BMW's overhauled it completely. That's not to say it isn't a big ol' bus anymore - since it'll continue to be sold in generous numbers in the USA, it'll still seat seven generously-proportioned human beings, and carry all their luggage along, too.
BMW will offer the new X5 with an inline-six diesel and a V8 petrol engine in India initially, but what we hope to see are the tri-turbo M50d, and the rear-drive 25d. Wouldn't a tail-happy SAV be fun?
Expected launch: Early-2014
