A More Muscular X5

The X5 M's styling is more aggressive than the regular X5's, but the changes have been tastefully integrated into the overall design. One thing that might be deemed a little over-the-top is the front end, which is punctuated by gaping, mesh-covered vents for enhanced engine and brake cooling.

Otherwise, changes are subtle. The lower-body cladding that's black on the regular X5 is body-colored here, and there are new M turn-signal indicators in the front fenders. Around back are the quad tailpipes that are characteristic of M cars. The standard 20-inch wheels with high-performance run-flat tires are indeed large, but they don't look excessively so thanks to the overall size of this crossover; combined with the X5 M's 10-millimeter-lower suspension, they fill out the wheel wells nicely.
