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 an impulsive temperament as soon as you set eyes on it. Contradictions that the BMW X5 M combines effortlessly. This vehicle stands for unadulterated commitment to performance and for comfort that is peerless among sports cars.


Standard specification.

The BMW X5 M comes with an impressive standard specification. To find out exactly what’s included, download the detailed specification below.



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.

Interior design.

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 standard M multifunctional seats, it’s the fine-grain ‘Merino’ leather and sophisticated contrast stitching that catch the eye immediately. The combination of fine-grain ‘Merino’ leather and the roofliner in Alcantara enables fascinating contrasts − just one example of how exclusive offers from the BMW Individual Collection can add even more refined touches to the interior.

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 right of the driver, meaning that the front-seat passenger also enjoys easy access to many different functions.


Whoever you are, whatever you do, you can tailor the BMW X5 M Series to suit you. One driver. One BMW.

With BMW Individual paint finishes you can fully enhance your car’s exterior appearance. One ideal paint finish for your BMW X5 M is Pyrite Brown metallic. 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.

The BMW X5 M also sets unprecedented standards inside with an array of colour options to elevate the fine-grain Merino leather. Here, it’s all about contrasts. For example, use Criollo Brown on the seat and finish the instrument panel in Black leather for a stunning finish. Further colour choices for the exceptionally high quality fine-grain Merino leather from BMW Individual allow you to make the BMW X5 M truly yours.

You can now customise your X5 M right down to the very last detail. And with a palette of distinct and vibrant colours you’ll find one to paint a picture of your personality. For example, choose Piano finish Black, with its impressively deep gloss to create 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 you opt for 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 quick and easy to remove, so the full luggage compartment volume can be made available as required.
