The wide front apron catches the eye immediately. Large air inlets are indicative of the imperious powerplant that is simply raring to go. The M double kidney grille is surrounded by a chrome frame.
Striking headlights guide your gaze to the side, where the all-round crease line and the imposing side skirts help to create a wedge-shaped silhouette and thus clearly underline its majestic presence. The rear of the BMW X5 M is sub-divided by horizontal lines, which create a more dynamic air and emphasise its wide stance. Two chrome-plated double tailpipe finishers below the large rear apron and the diffuser are from the world of motorsport. The BMW X5 M is ideally equipped for sporty ambitions – and, at the same time, offers all the everyday practicality and robustness you’ve come to expect from an X model.


In a class of its own: In the BMW X5 M, luxury meets sportiness. At the same time, the variable interior offers a high degree of functionality.
With the optional M multifunctional seats, it’s the fine-grain ‘Merino’ leather and sophisticated contrast stitching that catch the eye immediately. The surrounds on the instrument panel and operating elements stand for elaborate, top-quality ergonomics. This is underlined by matt chrome elements as well as interior trims in fine wood or carbon. The M gearshift lever and the driving dynamics buttons on the centre console are orientated towards the driver. Shift paddles on the M leather steering wheel ensure a racy driving sensation and the elevated seating position provides an excellent all-round view. The interior of the BMW X5 M combines elements of an M automobile and an X model perfectly to create a generous sensation of space. Comfort is guaranteed – with adrenaline in abundance.


Exclusive M multifunctional seats reflect the vehicle's exterior dynamism in the interior. The driver and front passenger can sit back in full leather seats with an embossed M logo on the headrest.
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 athletic 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 highlight the seats' 'Merino' leather.


Clear structures, 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.
In seats that offer outstanding stability even on the tightest of bends and, thanks to their elevated position, provide a clear overview of what’s going on. And with direct access to the most important functions. The M leather steering wheel guarantees absolute control, with the shift paddles inspiring you to make racy gearshifts. Via M Drive buttons, the M driving modes can be activated for maximum driving pleasure. Always in your line of vision: the Head-Up Display with special M features such as the shift lights, which indicate the ideal point at which to change gear. Just like in motorsport, but with the bonus of comfort, too. The air conditioning, navigation and radio are positioned to the left of the driver, meaning that the front-seat passenger also enjoys easy access to many different functions.


The BMW X5 M comes with 20" M light alloy wheels Double spoke style 611 M as standard. Optimised to ensure outstanding driving dynamics, the 285/40 R20 Y front tyres and 325/35 R20 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.

  • BMW Individual paint finishes

    Polished elegance meets endless dynamism – the new BMW X5 M in the paint finish 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. It is, overall, an exceedingly luxurious effect. And one that establishes a fascinating contrast with the impressive dimensions and powerful presence of this vehicle. Those who wish to give a different kind of character to their BMW X5 M can choose another finish without equal – BMW Individual Azurite Black metallic.

  • BMW Individual Merino leather

    Individual luxury you can see and feel: the new BMW X5 M also sets unprecedented standards in the interior. A particularly compelling composition from BMW Individual is the fine-grain Merino leather Criollo Brown, the instrument panel finished in Black leather and, for an enthralling contrast, the roofliner Alcantara in Smoke White. The overall result is a luxurious feel beyond compare. 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?

  • BMW Individual interior trims

    The full complement 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 Vulcano Brown.

  • Further BMW Individual equipment

    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.
    With the BMW Individual cooling box, driving pleasure has even wider appeal. It is quick and easy to remove, so full luggage compartment volume can be made available as required (expected to be available from April 2015).
