BMW has been advertising the 2014 F15 X5 with the tagline “The Boss is Back” (seen at the end of the second ad below) and the latest commercial coming out of Japan humorously shows just how boss the new X5 is — stopping a tough biker gang and a train dead in their tracks. The boss X5 is of course given the right of way.
New F48 X1 video as of January 6, 2014. We bring you the first live looks at the 2016 X1 (F48) prototypes. The F48 recently began its testing in August-September and while still heavily camouflaged, the test mules reveal a brawnier and stockier look than the current E84 X1.

While some may mistaken the E84 X1 for a larger wagon, there’s no … CONTINUED
