i really like this interior. certainly not a clean sheet design but a nicely executed evolution nonetheless with none of the busyness of recent BMW interiors. wish the same could be said for the exterior. should've made the headlights smaller to make the overall vehicle seem larger. as with the last generation x5, this will only look good with the biggest wheel options.

Really? I don't think previous gen interiors were amazing, design-wise, and I don't think this one is terrible, but it looks like they took a fundamentally sound and (blessedly) simple design and then wondered where they could throw in bent metal trim. There's too much of it, it's too angular, and I particularly don't like the combo of the trim marking the top of the wood being so close to the trim surrounding the air vents right below it. The air vents are already made of some metal-look material; I just find all the detailing to be overkill.

Regarding the exterior, what's going on w/ the "bump" in the character line over the rear fender? It looks better here than it did on, say, an E-Class or then it does on a LaCrosse, but it just seems very un-BMW like to me.

The rest looks nice....................however, I'm not sure what I feel about the bigger snout of the kidney grille.



It kinda bothers me for some reason........

I quite like it. I like the current X5 as well and this is a nice evolution of that. The new interior is nicely appointed (one of the best of current BMWs save for the i series). I don't mind the enlarged grille, but I'm still baffled by BMW's choice of fog lamps/side intakes. Such a weird clump of shapes. Taillights are nice if not a bit generic.

Well, people who did like the current model will certainly like this as well, given that not much has changed, apart from the now so fashionable uglier (because busy and everything is huge) front end and the non descript (read non BMW like) rear lights. As said in the spy shot section, there is nothing fundamentally wrong with it (well again we could discuss the front end/kidney size), but it's the second gen. X5 warmed up a third time, with bits of X3 thrown in. In the ever so quickly growing SUV market, I just don't think that will be enough when there is so much choice, even at the BMW dealership....


Inside certainly quality is high (though likely we are looking at a version that has doubled it#s base price in options), but I'm not a fan of that current (especially German)trend of adding more of everything inside, more metal, more chrome around every switch, more LED strips for "ambient light" that ends up looking like a strip bar at some point. At parts it just looks like they added it for the sake of adding more stuff material and design wise...

With personal vehicles losing manual transmission and getting innumerous assistants in their transition to autonomous vehicles, interior design does and will change more, to the extent of feeling like a lounge (not very different from strip bar minus the girls). Now I am not sure AV user wants to be in lounge as carmakers imagine. Some might want to be in garden, or the beach, or maybe in a library, maybe even in bed. Don't know how carmakers will cater to all wishes, they'll probably force us all to be at strip bars, that is where 'important' people spend their time when not a 'work' after all.
