In its third generation, the BMW X5 once again surpasses its own standards – as a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) that offers outstanding luxury in all areas in which the highest demands are made. This is guaranteed by a wide range of intelligent technologies that elevate efficiency, driving dynamics, comfort and versatility to a whole new level – both on and off the road.
The BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance images show the new BMW iPerformance Design expected to be available in the second half of 2016.
Strong characters are instantly recognisable. From the very first moment you set eyes on it, the BMW X5 grabs your attention – and keeps it. And once inside, you enjoy every single kilometer in the top-quality cockpit. The elevated seating position, for example, gives you an optimum view of the road ahead – and of the high-quality materials in the interior.
The driving dynamics of the BMW X5 ensure driving fun every time you get behind the wheel – with every twist and turn and at all speeds. The driver assistance systems guarantee perfect contact with the driving surface, be it on tight bends, during steep descents or at high speeds.
Driving pleasure is also a question of comfort. In the BMW X5, you can enjoy the utmost seating comfort, perfect soundtracks and the very best entertainment at all times.
With its dynamic, upright proportions, the third-generation BMW X5 is instantly recognisable as a BMW X model. However, it also has several new design features which further emphasise its majestic appearance and unbeatable versatility.
One important element of the optimised design is the focus on aerodynamics. Thanks to eye-catching elements in the front end, at the rear and on the sides, form and function are combined ideally: large air inlets, the Air Curtain in the front apron and the newly developed Air Breather in the front wheel arches underline the sporty character of the BMW X5 – and, at the same time, help to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The aerodynamic shape continues at the rear. The Air Blade on the D-pillar not only makes the car look wider, but also improves airflow.
At the front, the flat, wide design of the BMW kidney grille gives the BMW X5 and an imposing athletic presence. The kidney grille and the headlights are ‘combined’ with each other, creating the impression of an all-in-one unit and emphasising the vehicle’s wide track. At the same time, the short distance between the A-pillar and the front axle shifts the visual focus of the car further forwards, thus highlighting the all-wheel drive.
Top-quality leather, refined surfaces, atmospheric lighting and maximum comfort: Immerse yourself in the interior of the BMW X5 and feel the exclusiveness.
As soon as you take a seat in the BMW X5, one thing is clear immediately: Genuine perfection is demonstrated by the sum of all details. The spacious, luxurious interior is characterised by specially selected, perfectly crafted materials of the very highest quality.
Fine leather meets elegant decor – which, together with the individual illumination possibilities provided by the optional lighting package with ambient light designs, creates a highly exclusive atmosphere.
Electrically adjustable comfort seats for the driver and front-seat passenger help to ensure relaxed, fatigue-free driving and are available as an option. The top-quality free-standing Control Display and Harman/Kardon Surround sound system with excellent acoustics make a journey in the BMW X5 a treat for all the senses.
The Lights package includes numerous LED lights and lends the interior an elegant ambience that invites passengers to relax. The "welcome" lights create a carpet of light in front of the vehicle, welcoming the driver.
Ambient light underlines the lounge-style atmosphere of the interior. Nine predefined light designs in blue, white and orange fill the interior with a soothingly relaxing mixture of indirect and direct light sources. The additional light sources of the Ambient lighting are found on the trim, in the front and rear footwells and in all of the door compartments and panels, among other places. Practical reading lights are installed in the rear. Additional LED lights on the exterior offer additional everyday convenience, such as the LED vicinity lighting in the door handles that is activated upon entering and exiting.
