Meanwhile, there are other versions created under X series, bigger and smaller, but success of the first SUV had part in big selling numbers of its successors.

Experts believe there are few more years in third generation and major overhaul is expected in 2020.

It is described as prototype vehicle, with a lot of camouflage, because many parts are not ready yet. Side and doors are almost the same as for current crossover. Since hood, bumpers and most of the front fascia were covered in spy shots, we expect these elements with new shape and look. Body seems to be lower than before. Rear end is different, with new lights and fascia. Size of the wheels are the same as before.
