That looks hideous. The rear roof slope looks more like a Benz than a BMW. And the front reminds me of the Nissan IDx concept, and not in a good way.

Headlights look lame in all these leaked photos and renders. They look like Audi lights and are too small for the front. Yeah for the kidneys I guess.

IF this render is at all accurate, it becomes apparent that the current crop of BMW designers have made some of the same mistakes they made on the 2 GC and the 4.

One of the mistakes I heard the former designer of the X5 mention was how the crease no longer goes through the doorhandles and we see that mistake in the 2 GC and this render as well.

This video goes over the mistakes in the 2 GC and mentions that as well as problems with the headlights, tail lights, and air scoops.

I think BMW should make its cars with rounded headlights, strong bulging arches and bit boxy, and basically reinterpret the E28 and E30 styles. 4 round headlights in modern style (like what Porsche or Mini is doing) would nicely improve things and might balance that stupid bucktooth grille they think looks good.

If this is what it turns out to be then the bucket is close to bursting for abysmal BMW designs of late in my opinion.

I kinda like it

Of course, I'm kinda ruined by looking at the G22/8x for reference.

The headlights look too small and tails have an odd shape to them, not the worst render I've seen though.

Think it's best to wait and see what it looks like in person before assuming the worst.

Those headlights look almost as bad as the grill on the new 4 series. Horrible...

I like the general shape of it! Has old school cues! Some design ideas on the front are less than impressive. Maybe I'm still recovering from the 4-series so this front end just screams awesomeness in comparison. Lol

Sorry but over all it's bad, the headlights are horrible, so are the taillights and there is something funky about the rear window
