BMW is working on its 2024 BMW X5 and X6 which are a Sports Activity Vehicle and a Sports Activity Coupe respectively to its luxury segment portfolio.
Both automobiles have undergone a major revamp to their standard specifications by the manufacturer. The changes are reflected both in the exterior and interior of the vehicles.
2024 BMW X5 and X6 Engine Specifications

BMW X5 and X6 Design

The driver will also be able to control the illumination manually through the iDrive menu. The new headlights will have an outline that is marginally narrower than in the predecessor models and can function like turn signal indicators.
The lower intake of the X5 will sport pearl-effect Chrome triangular apertures in its external areas and a new horizontal trim detail. The rear lights also have a new design with fiber-optic light elements for their striking contours.
