The next generation 2014 BMW X5 was spotted with its interior design fully uncovered. The X5 is just weeks away from its official world debut and for the first time in a long time we have a chance to see both the final exterior and interior design way ahead of its premiere.
Back in January, the F15 was leaked through a web configurator most likely used by one of BMW’s branding and marketing agencies.
As seen in the new F30 3 Series, the dashboard design follows the layered design approach showcased back in 2009 with the Vision EfficientDynamics Concept. The car gets a driver-focus design, a BMW trait seen across all recent models. The move from a flat dashboard to one that wraps around the driver, gives the car both a more personal feel and a sportier stance.
On top of the dashboard sits a free-standing LCD screen compared to the one built-in into the current generation. The new F15 X5 is also rumored to get BMW’s newest iTouch Drive knob which allows for gestures to input commands or text.
Inside, the customers will have a choice between Black Leatherette and Black Dakota Leather, Canberra Beige Dakota, Terra Dakota, Ivory White Dakota and Mocha Dakota with contrast stitching.
First introduced with the new 1 and 3 Series models, pre-configured packages / lines will be offered for the X5 as well, starting with the Luxury Line (ZLL), xLine (ZXD) and ending with the M Sport Package. The Luxury Line and xLine will also come with exclusive Line-specific 19″ wheel (optional upgrade to 20“ wheels) and a unique car key.
