The new 2014 BMW X5 is finally here. The model is very easy to recognize, and as you can see, the crossover has evolutionary styling which closely mimics the outgoing model. Even so, the new one has a more obvious grille, an aerodynamic front bumper and optional LED adaptive headlights. Moving on, we also have to mention the rear Aero Blades and new Air Curtains that, according to the engineers, will reduce the drag by routing air around the wheel arches.

For the interior, the specialists have used high quality materials and have improved the design. The main elements are the LED ambient lighting, a freestanding iDrive display, gloss black accents and Oxide Silver, Aluminum Hexagon or Poplar Grain wood trim. As optional, the buyer can select comfort / sport seats, a reclining second row and heated / ventilated front seats. The list continues with 4-zone automatic climate control, a third row seat and also a new rear seat entertainment system with two tablet-style displays. The model will also be offered with three different engines.
