The Borgward BX5 prototype and the Borgward Projekt BX6 TS concept have been revealed ahead of the 2016 Geneva motor show.
The Borgward BX5 measures 4483mm long, 1876mm wide, 1677mm tall and rides on a 2685mm wheelbase, placing it in a class below the seven-seat 4713mm BX7 SUV that was unveiled last year.
Depending on the configuration of the rear seats, the BX5’s boot is said to accommodate between 500 and 1200 litres worth of gear.
The BX5 will share its Geneva stage with the Projekt BX6 TS, a “coupe” SUV based on the BX5’s platform. To go along with its sportier demeanour, the BX6 features a revised roof line and hind quarters, lowered suspension, and an active rear spoiler.
The Projekt BX6 TS concept is powered by a more powerful plug-in hybrid drivetrain. Under the bonnet, the “coupe” features a 200kW turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. This is coupled to a 110kW electric motor for the rear axle and a permanent all-wheel drive system.
Geneva’s BX5 prototype rides on 19-inch alloy wheels paired with 235/55 rubber, while the Projekt BX6 TS sits on 20-inch rims matched with 245/45 tyres.
