2024 BMW X5 Exterior and Dimensions

2024 X5 Exterior

The exterior of the BMW X5 still looks fresh thanks to the 2024 facelift. It's traditionally BMW-chic, with no big love-it-or-hate-it rabbit's-tooth grille to contend with. It's not as swoopy as the X6, but boxy doesn't mean bad if you consider the roomy interior and large trunk. The aggressive new front bumper gets an angular lower maw and silver vertical grille slats on the six-cylinder cars, but a black lower bumper insert and black kidneys with the M badge on the M60i, along with the latter's M Sport body kit, black mirror caps, and dark Shadowline exterior trim. This kit is optional on the 40i cars, making them look nearly identical to the M60i save for the grille, which remains the standard item. Wheels measure 20 inches in diameter on all trims, but various 21- and 22-inch designs are optionally available. All X5s get LED headlights, a panoramic moonroof, a power liftgate, and power-folding side mirrors. An illuminated kidney grille is optional. Upgraded adaptive LED headlights with blue accents are standard on the M60i. At the rear, all the six-cylinder cars get dual exhausts, and the M60i quad exhausts.
