BMW continues with the fine-tuning of the update of the BMW X5, an SUV that will incorporate several technical novelties and a renewed image.
One of the world’s benchmark SUV- type models, the BMW X5, faces one of the last stages in the set-up of its next renovation. Throughout 2021, the German brand will polish a series of details that will allow the X5 to remain one of the most evolved vehicles compared to its competitors.
According to the latest spy images published on the Internet about the more than likely 2022 BMW X5, the changes in aesthetic terms will be very subtle, both outside and inside. The latest spy images have been captured in the vicinity of the plant owned by the Bavarian firm in Munich (Germany). Among the different “camouflage garments”, there are aesthetic changes in the headlights, rear light clusters, front grill, and bumpers, as well as alloy wheels with new designs and styles.
Changes in the inside should focus on the incorporation of a new multimedia system infotainment touchscreen of 10.25 inches and equipped with the new BMW iDrive 7.0 operating system, while the instrument panel should take center stage the new digital display 12.3-inch size BMW Live Cockpit Professional technology.

Regarding the range of engines, its mechanical offer should be articulated in new and optimized evolutions of gasoline and diesel blocks accompanied by 48V mild-hybrid light hybridization technology, which adds more torque and power at certain times, in addition, to help reduce consumption, depending on driving circumstances (estimated fuel economy can reach 0.7 l / 100 km). On the other hand, the plug-in hybrid technology will also continue to be the protagonist with at least one variant: the xDrive45e.
For the moment, this is all that we can advance you regarding the next update of the great SUV of the German firm, a model that could be the first in the range to receive an unreleased electric version powered by fuel cell technology from hydrogen. BMW has already laid the foundations for its new I-Hydrogen Next technology and in past information, we advance you that the X5 could be the first production vehicle to receive it, although in recent months and weeks it seems that this hypothesis will not finally come true.
