The captivating M design of the BMW X5 M.

A sports car that can accommodate five people comfortably. An all-rounder whose commanding presence guarantees adrenaline rushes. A Sports Activity Vehicle with a design that exudes dynamism. Contradictions that the BMW X5 M combines effortlessly. This vehicle stands for unadulterated commitment to performance, with comfort that’s unmatched by other sports cars.

Exterior design.

The wide front apron catches the eye immediately. Large air inlets are indicative of the engine that is simply raring to go. Chrome beautifully frames the M double-kidney grille. Striking headlights guide your gaze to the side, where the unmistakable crease line and imposing side skirts help to create a wedge-shaped silhouette and a thoroughly majestic presence. The rear of the BMW X5 M is sub-divided by horizontal lines, which give it a dynamic air and emphasise its wide stance. Two chrome-plated double tailpipe finishers below the large rear apron and diffuser come straight from the world of motorsport. The BMW X5 M is ideally equipped for sporty ambitions whilst offering all the everyday practicality and robustness you’ve come to expect from an X model.

Interior design.

In a class of its own: In the BMW X5 M, luxury meets sportiness, and the thoroughly variable interior offers a high degree of functionality. With the M multifunctional seats as standard, it’s the fine-grain Merino leather and sophisticated contrast stitching that catch the eye immediately. The combination of this Merino leather and a Alcantara headlining provide a perfectly-judged contrast − just one example of how exclusive offers from the BMW Individual Collection can add even more refined touches to the interior.
The instrument panel and operating element surrounds immediately suggest top-quality ergonomics. This is underlined by matt chrome elements as well as interior trims in fine wood or carbon. The M gear stick  and the dynamics buttons on the centre console are orientated towards the driver. Gearshift paddles on the M leather steering wheel ensure a race-like driving sensation and the elevated seating position provides an excellent all-round view. The interior of the BMW X5 M perfectly combines elements of an M BMW and an X model to create a generous sensation of space. Comfort is guaranteed – with adrenaline in abundance.


Exclusive M multifunctional seats are an extension of the car’s dynamic exterior. Both the driver and front passenger have the pleasure of relaxing into full leather seats with M logo-embossed headrests.
Even during very dynamic driving, the deep seats, high side bolsters and angled shoulder sections guarantee perfect lateral support at all times. Highly comfortable, these seats are designed to match the vehicle's exceptionally athletic performance and offer an outstanding level of luxury on long journeys.
Integrated headrests highlight the sporty look. The seats come with a range of adjustment options, including electronic adjustment of the seat depth, headrest height and backrest width.
The seat has a recess at the top of the backrest, giving it an appearance of lightness. This impression is reinforced by the contrasting area just below the recess. Double lap seams in a contrasting colour give the seats a highly exclusive look and accentuate the seats' Merino leather.


Top-quality ergonomics and an unbeatable view: In the cockpit of the BMW X5 M, the driver and front-seat passengers are transformed into pilots. The seats offer outstanding stability even on the tightest of bends, provide a clear, elevated of the road ahead and allow direct access to the most important functions. The M leather steering wheel guarantees absolute control, with the gearshift paddles inspiring race-like gear changes. Via M Drive buttons, the M driving modes can be activated for maximum driving pleasure.
The Head-up Display has special M features such as the gear change indicator in your line of vision - just like in motorsport, but with the added bonus of comfort. The air conditioning, navigation and radio are positioned to the right of the driver, meaning that the front-seat passenger also enjoys easy access to many different functions.


The BMW X5 M comes with forged 21" M light alloy wheels Double-spoke style 612 M as standard. They exude strength and presence whichever way you look at them. Optimised to ensure outstanding driving dynamics, the 285/35 R21 Y front tyres and 325/30 R21 Y rear tyres offer top-class grip, direct steering response and perfect handling.


Uniqueness of character is revealed in every detail – the essence of true exclusivity. Give full expression to your pursuit of perfection with BMW Individual equipment for the BMW X5 M.
  • Polished elegance meets modern dynamism – the new BMW X5 M in Pyrite Brown metallic from BMW Individual. Thanks to microscopically small Xirallic® pigmentation, the otherwise light brown surface takes on a regal silver sheen in direct light. This gives an exceptionally luxurious effect that beautifully complements the car’s powerful presence. Those who wish to give their BMW X5 M a different character could go for another utterly unique finish – BMW Individual Azurite Black metallic.
  • Individual luxury you can see and feel: the new BMW X5 M also sets unprecedented standards inside. A particularly compelling composition from BMW Individual is the fine-grain Merino leather in ­­Criollo Brown, the instrument panel finished in Black leather and, for a stunning contrast, the Alcantara rooflining in Smoke White. The overall result is an incredibly luxurious feel. Further colour choices for the exceptionally high quality fine-grain Merino leather from BMW Individual allow you to make the new BMW X5 M truly one of a kind. Which colour best expresses your unique character?
  • A palette of perfect colours: the BMW Individual interior trim in Piano finish Black, with its impressively deep gloss, creates a shining contrast with the silky matt Criollo Brown fine-grain Merino leather. The BMW Individual fine-wood trims, hand-selected and hand-crafted, are equally striking: whether it’s the delicately patterned Sen Light Brown or the exciting Ash Volcano Brown.
  • The addition of the instrument panel with leather finishing from BMW Individual introduces a new dimension of refinement to the interior. Depending on the choice of BMW Individual fine-grain Merino leather, selected features are either in Black or Scotch Dark.
    The BMW Individual cooling box gives you the option to keep food and drinks at the right temperature, however far you’re travelling. Plus it’s is quick and easy to remove, so the full luggage compartment volume can be made available as required (expected to be available from April 2015).


There’s a new shadow being cast and it’s the BMW 1 Series Shadow Edition. This model is packed with attitude featuring darkened head and tail lights, and kidney grille.
