2020 X5, X6, X7 model updates for Autumn 2019

From BMW PressClub Global - 7.09.2019 Press Release
BMW X5, BMW X6, BMW X7: new customisation options.


The appearance, interior ambience and comfort levels of the BMW X5, BMW X6 and BMW X7 can now be attuned even more precisely to personal preferences thanks to a number of new equipment options. M multifunction front seats are just one of the optional features due to become available for the executive- and luxury-class BMW X models from December 2019. Quite apart from their outstanding comfort, the seats also offer a wide range of adjustment options, all operated electrically. They can also be upgraded by the addition of massage and ventilation functions for even greater comfort on long journeys.

Customers seeking the ultimate in exclusivity can look forward to the BMW Individual Composition, which will be offered for the new BMW X5, new BMW X6 and new BMW X7 from December 2019. This equipment package comprises a selection of highly exclusive options for the exterior and interior boasting exceptional material quality and workmanship. 22-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels and a BMW Individual paint finish ensure the BMW X models cut a stylish figure. Inside, BMW Individual Merino full leather trim, a BMW Individual headliner in Alcantara and BMW Individual interior trim strips in Piano Finish Black create a sense of high luxury.

The options list for the new BMW X6 also now includes a load compartment package comprising sliding rails, non-slip rails and retaining nets. Interior trim strips in Ash Grain Brown or Fineline Stripe and Vernasca design-perforated leather trim in Ivory White add to the choice of customisation options for the cabin. Paint finishes in Sapphire Black metallic and Sophisto Grey brilliant effect metallic and the BMW Individual paint finishes Tanzanite Blue metallic and Ametrine metallic have now been added to the colour palette for customers wishing to give the Sports Activity Coupe’s exterior a particularly striking look. An M Carbon rear spoiler and M Carbon mirror caps can also be specified to bring the car’s sporting genes even further to the fore.


The Adaptive M suspension Professional optionally available for the new BMW X5 gives it far greater poise in dynamic driving situations. This optional extra, comprising active roll stabilisation, the M Sport differential and Integral Active Steering, will also be available for the BMW X5 xDrive40i and BMW X5 xDrive30d from December 2019.

The functionality of the Driving Assistant Professional will be enhanced in the new BMW X5 and new BMW X6 with the addition of the new Lane Change Assistant, which aids the driver with automated steering movements during overtaking manoeuvres.


Driving Assistant Professional brings real-time 3D visualisation of the surrounding area to the instrument cluster.

The Driving Assistant Professional offers drivers an extremely wide range of assistance in monotonous and complex traffic situations. Its range of functions now includes 3D visualisation of the area around the car, which has been available in all models equipped with BMW Live Cockpit Professional since July 2019. The system uses the data supplied by the driver assistance systems’ cameras and sensors to generate a real-time three-dimensional graphic image of the vehicle’s surroundings. The image appears in the centre of the instrument cluster and helps to give the driver a clearer overview of what is happening on the road, especially when driving on multi-lane highways. This means the driver can also register the position of other road users driving in front of or alongside them when they glance down at the speedometer or rev counter.


BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant with separate iDrive menu and individual configurability.

The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant enjoys additional functionality gains. Since July 2019 users have been able to access all the relevant settings via a separate menu in the BMW Operating System 7.0. This means the driver can adjust the functioning of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant according to the driving situation at hand. For example, the intelligent and proactive functions can be switched on and off, and notifications and phone calls can be anonymised if passengers are on board.

Playing with the "inspiration" configurator on the Austrian BMW website I came across what could be the new M professional seats they're talking about. It could be that they slipped and revealed them by accident here:

https://www.bmw.at/de/all-models/x-s...spirieren.html

Scroll almost all the way down, you can also configure all the colors that are not yet available.

Those just look like normal sport and normal comfort seats. Please post a pic of what you're seeing if it's different. I see the color options which are new for the X5 but were offered on the X5 4/19 just like Ametrin Metallic .

But this does not necessarily mean it will be available in the US.

I had the same thought. The date format as well as the language used (for example, "autumn" instead of "Fall") implies this is being targeted to European customers. Hopefully it is available in the US as well.

DHP available for the 40i is bittersweet. Nice that they finally have it, but a pity that they didn't introduce it earlier for 40i buyers who don't necessarily want the V8. Also wish that they decouple this from IAS. Again, IAS is not everyone's cup of tea. The M-diff , the new suspension and Electronic Anti-Roll Stabilization (EARS; more sophisticated and granular than a sway bar) are all good.

To be more specific, IMHO EARS is really needed on an SUV this big. Body roll is noticeable , even with non-aggressive driving (!) , at 40-50mph on winding roads or even city roads with gentle curves, even with the Adaptive -M suspension set to Sport mode.


Extra colors, especially the grey one will be interesting to check out.
Also interested in how the new wheel option looks like.

Just above the car, toggle over to M Sport and then these seats will show up. Personally I feel seats this aggressive should be reserved for the X5M but they do look nice.

It would be nice if BMW would add some lighter metallic colors.

The seats look cool to me. I just wonder if they’d be as comfortable as the multi-contour seats. They probably will be more expensive.

They are, if you've ever been in an M5/M8/M850i etc you'll see what I mean. They're still comfort seats but with more bolstering. That style is my favorite because it's comfy and keeps you in place i.e. is very supportive.

These look like they will be the X5M seats but the full M will have a alcantara center section. Side bolsters are great but a PIA to get in and out. They will also show accelerated wear on the bolsters because of this. There is no free ride the more performance oriented you go.

Are they different from the seats in the new X3M? I found those to be less comfortable than the multi-contour seats. Although they are more heavily bolstered, they had less padding and wouldn’t be as comfortable on long trips, IMO.
