Ugly exterior, sexy interior.


One thing that bothers me is that they are all starting to look the same.
I mean...the center consol and the shifter area looks very similar to Audi now.
The steering wheel center also enlarged and resembels Audi's steering wheel.

The navigation is flat, not like the usual indented BMW navi.

I love the interior lighting though. It was a great idea to extend those interior LED's throughout the interior.

I concur. And that interior looks amazing.

Hey that's really nice looking for its segment which I think crossovers?

Beautiful front end for sure and the interior is phenomenal! Can't wait to see the new 5-series sedan

+1000

The overall exterior is strange in shape and the rear design is just vulgar. What the hell man!?! Also, the interior is perfect but predictable!

I really like this car as a family car and an alternative to a station wagon, but I don't understand the two bucket seats in the rear, that kills the car for me as a family hauler

Agree w/ 1st point, not the second. Interiors are very difficult to execute successfully as involves aesthetics, ergonomics as well as design look and feel.

Like the interior - including the new-look instruments as debuted in the 7er.

What's with BMW using very similar interiors on all the new cars? The X5, X6, 7er, and 5er GT have very similar dashboard designs. I know they've been similar in the past, for instance the E60, E65, E90, but they were distinguished with a different design built on the same "foundation." The new ones look like they took the previous design, and slightly modified it to fit the class and size of the new car (like from 7er to 5 GT).

I like it. It's a European car built for the European market. It's a Grand Tourer. Not every care can be an M3 or M5. The front looks great, and BMW FINALLY got rid of those horrendous Asain looking headlights. Looks European again, which is way better.

Wow. This must be BMW's version of the Pontiac Aztek.



The irony of it all is that it will sell well. Why? It's a BMW.

The only similarity between this car and the Aztek is the "fastback" roofline. Otherwise I can't see any similarity at all. By your logic the X5 must be BMWs version of the GMC Jimmy, afterall they are both SUVs! The BMW M Coupe must be the same as a Datsun Z! Give me a break

There is a technical reason for this: The iDrive screen will no longer be recessed b/c LEDs are now used for backlighting instead of CCFL (fluorescent). The screen needed to be indented, but no longer.

It's a figurative statement not a literal one.
Actually, I do like the Datsun Z.

Hhmmm.... great interior. Not sure about the side look. It looks like an avant, or like a family car style.

BTW... what aboiut the usual 5? is still planned to be built?

This may be like an x6 to an x5.. I can't wait to see the 5.. man this isnt such a great look.. It's definitely R class competition.. or business vehicle..

I'm slightly disappointed

There is a serious issue with the exterior proportion of this car! Interior looks great!

This is not an R class competitor. Not in any way.
