On the exterior, the iX is about the same size as the current X5, stands as tall as the X6, and features the same wheel dimensions as the X7. At the centre of the front end stands the new controversial kidney grille.

Since the electric drive system of the BMW iX requires only a small amount of cooling air, the kidney grille is completely blanked off. Its role has duly turned digital and here it functions as an intelligence panel.

Camera technology, radar functions and other sensors are integrated seamlessly into the grille behind a transparent surface.

BMW iX

The door openers are flush, the filler neck for the windscreen washer fluid is concealed under the BMW logo on the bonnet and the rear-view camera has been integrated into the BMW logo on the tailgate.

BMW iX wheels

While the BMW iX xDrive40 comes with LED headlights, the iX xDrive40 Sport gets BMW Laserlights. Another difference is that the iX xDrive40 comes fitted with 21-inch wheels, whereas the iX xDrive40 Sport gets 22-inch aerodynamic rims.

Interior

Inside, the cabin is designed to be as minimalist as possible, with an exceptionally large panoramic glass roof, no centre tunnel, and a centre console crafted to look like a piece of furniture.
