2010 BMW V5 aka Progressive Activity Sedan (PAS)

The BMW V-series. Doesn't seem like the most brilliant naming scheme (it could be confused with the engine designation), but there are multiple reports about this new lineup, these reports have been verified by the BMW brass, and new test mules were spotted around the road and track.

The international media is reporting that although the mule pictures below looks very similar to the X6, this is more of a "crossover" vehicle that will mix the elements of a sedan with the extra comfort and and luxury offered by larger SUVs. It is supposedly 5-series in dimensions, so think of it as a 5-series with extra space in the interior and a higher ride height. The car will not be as tall or large as an X6, although it will have the same characteristic sloping rear roofline.

And now onto the pictures of the test mule caught driving around and rendered pictures of what the car may look like.

I like the look. I also like the utility of a hatchback.

That front's probably going to be the staple for the next generation of BMW's...if so I'm keeping my car for a lot longer than I thought.

I like the X6 a lot and this really doesn't look that bad either but I'm starting to ask myself "when are they going to stop?" With all these new model lines I feel like BMW may be taking it too far and diluting the brand...

I don't really see the purpose for this crossover. BMW will have the X6, the X5 and this new V series? That is 3 SUV's that are pretty near all the same size. I really can't see them making the X6 and this V series. That would mean the BMW brand would have 4 SUV vehicles which is more than any other brand I believe, especially for a company that is primarily a lux/sport brand.

I believe that the X6 was originally planned as the new V series, and targetting the MB R-Class.

Is there really even a need to target the R-Class?

Agree. I do like the car and if it has a hatchback, it could be useful for a family vehicle.

What is this ugly car? I was looking at the pictures of Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG and then I saw this.

All I can say is
