BMW is also debuting a new options package.

It adopts a new platform shared with the upcoming X7 as well as a larger external and internal dimensions, updated powertrains and the very latest in the German vehicle maker's digital cockpit and infotainment functions within a more versatile and luxurious cabin.

The 2019 BMW X5 will arrive in Canadian showrooms in November, with pricing and details of standard features to be announced closer to that time. Rear-wheel steering is also available for the first time in an X5.

Despite the increase in size, the new BMW offers the same boot capacity as the outgoing third-generation X5 at 645 litres (rising to 1860 litres when the 60:40 split rear seat is folded away).

The 2018 BMW X5 interior will match what we have seen on the BMW X7 so far but there will be a few tweaks here and there.

The precise character line in the car's flanks, which rises up at the rear door, is key to the modern appearance of the new X5.

Interesting features on this new generation of X5 include an acoustic windscreen and side windows to cut down on noise, smart cruise control that will keep you in your lane and slow down when the cars in front do and active steering that comes as standard to help improve the car's agility.

The new model has been lengthened by 3.6 cm (1.4 in), widened by 6.6 cm (2.6 in) and stands 1.9 cm (0.74 in) taller than its predecessor, with overall dimensions of 492 x 200 x 174 cm (193 x 79 x 68.5 in). The X5 rides on 20-inch M alloy wheels as standard, while 21-inch and 22-inch sizes are available as optional.

Inside, we'll also be treated to the latest generation of the iDrive infotainment system with two 12.3-inch screens placed side by side, gesture recognition control, head-up display, multi-adjustable seats with massaging function, four-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof and much, much more.

Certain overseas markets will also get an xDrive50i variant, featuring a newly developed 340kW/650Nm V8 turbopetrol, and an xDrive40i with BMW's 3-litre six-pot turbopetrol, tuned to 250kW and 450Nm.

The engine line-up for the new X5 at the start of production includes two petrol and two diesel units.

To fit the whole family the 2019 X5 will offer optional third row of seats to give the X5 room for seven.

Under the hood is the 3.0-liter straight-six engine that will be offering 20hp more than the previous model.

Both engines are hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission and BMW's intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive system.

A quartet of turbochargers allow the six-cylinder in-line diesel engine fitted in the new M50d to produce a maximum output of 294 kW while peak torque of 760Nm should result in more than enough oomph off the line.
