With its dynamic, upright proportions, the third-generation BMW X5 is instantly recognisable as part of the BMW X range. But it also has several new design features that further underscore its majestic appearance and unbeatable versatility.
A key element in the optimised design is the focus on aerodynamics. Thanks to eye-catching features in the front end, at the rear and on the sides, form and function are combined perfectly. Large air inlets, the Aero Curtain in the front apron and the newly developed Air Breather in the front wheel arches underscore the sporting character of the BMW X5 – and, at the same time, help reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The aerodynamic theme 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 an imposing athletic presence. The kidney grille and the headlights are combined to create the impression of an all-in-one unit that accentuates the vehicle’s wide track. At the same time, the short distance between the A-pillar and the front axle shifts the visual focus forwards, highlighting the all-wheel drive.
