Caught during road testing around Munich, the next-generation BMW X5 (codename: E70) looks like it'll be an evolutionary design step from the first-gen model. Nonetheless, BMW has done some serious backbending to include the all-important third row of seats, making room by adding 16 centimeters to the X5's length and six centimeters to its width. Spies also say the dashboard's gotten a makeover to allow for gadgetry including radar-assisted cruise control and the same night vision now available on the 7-Series. Figure on a Paris launch for the mainline models and a mid-2007 unveiling of the long-awaited M-Power edition.
