BMW X5 M LCI Spied with New Grille and Headlights

For a great-looking SUV, BMW did not have to do much with the facelift of the BMW X5. Although it is still a stylish vehicle, it is a bit of a pain in terms of technical data. Before their lunch break over beer and schnitzel, the BMW exterior designers probably finished the sketch for the LCI facelift. They finished the facelift with a little tweak here and a little tweak there. You can see some of these subtle changes in these new spy photos through their camouflage.

The facelift of the X5, like other revisions from BMW LCI, focused on the car’s face. It replaced the pre-LCI car’s grille with a new, bigger, and pointier one, flanked by new smaller headlights. Although it does give the X5 a bit fresher and aggressive look, it’s not a drastic change since it still looks like an X5. Is it more appealing? When it is officially presented and you no longer look at it through a swirling camo, you will make that decision.

In these photos, you can take a look at the largely identical taillights and rear of the BMW X5 LCI. Compared to the LCI’d X3, they seem to have real three-dimensional geometry from the side. The X3 is stunning, so this is great news.

In addition, the four exhaust pipes and the M-style mirrors in these photos indicate that it is a BMW X5 M. Although even M performance models now feature the latter. The LCI is expected to drop the base variant of the BMW X5 M, leaving only the Competition model. From the same 4.4 litres twin-turbo V8, it will pack 617 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque.

Although it would not be necessary, many are curious if the X5 M will receive any interior updates. The BMW X5 has a driver display, gear lever, climate controls and the latest technology. A carbon fibre bucket seat would be a fantastic new option. In any case, you’ll soon find out.
