The 2014 BMW X5 (F15) has just received a selection of BMW M Performance parts and for those interested the German manufacturer will put them on sale in March 2014. As you can see from the photos, the 2014 BMW X5 has just became sexier and features a black decorative grid for the kidney grille, a front splitter, exterior mirror caps in carbon, air ducting elements, side sills featuring the M Performance lettering and a new rear air diffuser.
Inside, we can see the BMW M Performance Steering wheel with red central marking, a new gear lever with carbon surface, accelerator, brake pedal and driver footrest in high-grade steel and new BMW M Performance floor mats. Moreover, the vehicle comes with BMW M Performance brake system with blue brake calipers as well as 21-inch light alloy wheels in Bi-Color finish.
The German carmaker also offers the BMW M Performance Power Kit for the X5 xDrive35i. The power kit adds 20 bhp (15 kW) and 50 Nm, which means that the X5 xDrive35i delivers a total output of 326 bhp (240 kW) and 450 Nm of torque. Furthermore, BMW offers the M performance silcencer system. All variants of the new BMW X5 can be fitted with M Performance tailpipe trim elements in chrome or carbon.
That the BMW X models have that unique look is mainly due to the presence of the brand’s well-known design features that are combined with versatility, robustness, and that indisputable presence. It is clear that under the new X5, this design language has been upgraded to have a more attractive and contemporary feel. Like the previous versions, the third-generation of BMW’s Sports Activity Vehicle has proportions that are defined by a mix of the long wheelbase, short overhang in the front, upright A-pillars, and a short distance between the instrument panel and the front axle.
By having the side air intakes placed on the vehicle’s outer edges and combined with the front apron, it puts more focus on the X5’s planted stance and wide track. The striking underbody has protection elements that offer further proof on the versatile and robust quality. This model’s kidney grille has a muscular design and is positioned in the triangle of the front foglamps and twin circular headlights.
Meanwhile, the X-shaped curve on the bumper is added proof that the X5 is indeed part of the X model family. There is no question that the broad-set kidney grille is able to extend all through the headlight units. Its signature twin circular headlights are still there and stretch to the side panels. The light rings meanwhile have been levelled off at its bottom portion with the top region being overlapped by the LED accent light. In addition, the combination of the more pronounced three-dimensional design and sweeping chrome inserts help highlight the classy character.
As an option, customers can opt to have the front foglamps use LED. Offered as an option as well are the Adaptive LED Headlights which can be easily recognized by the horizontal light sources that are in the middle of the vehicle’s light rings. BMW said that the X5 xDrive50i, and even the X5 M50d, have been fitted, as standard, with the xenon headlights.
