The new BMW X5 and X6, which boast a raft of new design elements, revised powertrains, greater efficiency and a substantial increase to standard specification, will launch in Australia (hopefully NZ too) in Q3 this year.

The new BMW X5: slim headlights, illuminated BMW kidney grille

Regardless of the design package, the front end of the new BMW X5 is shaped by the fresh interpretation of the hallmark BMW headlights and kidney grille. The new headlight units now have a 35-millimetre slimmer outline, while arrow-shaped daytime driving light elements point outwards and also serve as turn signal indicators.

The BMW kidney Iconic Glow will also be offered as standard, its cascade lighting creating an eye-catching and brand-typical look. The vertical air curtains and the lower air intake, complete with decorative trim detail in Pearl-effect Chrome and triangular apertures in its outer areas, also contribute to the cutting-edge aura.

The sculptural fibre-optic light guide elements for the rear lights and brake lights now have particularly striking contouring, while the L shape familiar from other BMW models is reflected horizontally, creating a consistently illuminated X motif within the rear lights.

The new BMW X6: Aggression meets refinement   

Slim headlight units with arrow-shaped daytime driving light elements also characterise the reinvigorated front end of the new BMW X6.   

BMW kidney Iconic Glow and the M Sport package will also be fitted as standard for locally-delivered models.

Key elements of the M Sport package include an octagonal front-end signature below the BMW kidney grille with striking side apertures and generous use of black surfaces. In addition, the three-dimensional sculpting of the front apron underscores the car’s width and brawny stature.

M-specific side skirts and M High-gloss black exterior décor elements are also part of the M Sport package. The rear apron has an insert in Dark Shadow and the new exhaust tailpipe trims feature a trapezoidal shape.

Here are the upgrades:
