the design of the definitive version of the sporty SUV on the run


Hybrid of the electric iX, the BMW XM with an M like Motorsport, will be unveiled at the end of the year. But don’t wait any longer to discover its final lines.

The large sports SUV BMW XM will be unveiled at the end of the year. But you can now get an idea of ​​its final lines, which, it is true, are not very far from those of the eponymous concept car. It is logical today that brands no longer engage in false promises, both stylistic and technological. BMW is no exception to the rule as evidenced by the industrial property patents, filed by the brand and which have leaked on the Web.

BMW XM barely wiser than the concept car

Without surprise, the nose of the BMW XM, which will arrive in dealerships in early 2023, sports imposing nostrils framed by lighting on two floors. Exuberant, even caricatural, but this is assumed on a living room prototype, the grille looks a little more reasonable on the production XM. On the other hand, the lighting of the contour of the nostrils will be preserved, this allows to have a characteristic and very clearly identifiable light signature.

With its daytime running lights perched on the edge of the hood and its headlamps cleverly concealed behind a dark surface, the BMW XM will follow the path traced by the 7 Series limousine. Vis-à-vis the concept car, unveiled in November 2021 (see our gallery photo), the style has necessarily mellowed a little, especially in the treatment of the lights, the contours of which are now horizontal and lose the spirit of « stiletto shoe » which caused a sensation in the concept. The sides are also more sober both in terms of the shape of the wheel arches and the treatment of the quarter panels.. Finally, at the level of the stern, the shield also calms the game but retains, and that’s good, the superimposed hexagonal exhaust outlets. Let’s be a little patient before discovering the layout of its interior.
