Editorial AUTOMOTIVE LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. There are few vehicles that connect you to the driving experience in a truly satisfying way. That’s because there are few vehicles that can deliver on all counts – whether you’re on a snowy excursion with friends, heading toward soccer practice in muddy conditions, or merely tackling the thrilling corners of a challenging stretch of secluded tarmac. Real life is dynamic, unpredictable and exciting – and requires a vehicle that can respond accordingly. Here’s the perfect answer: the BMW X . An exuberant take on BMW’s original Sports Activity Vehicle, the BMW X plots a course for modern-day adventurers. A rugged and powerful exterior, yet is graceful and agile. An interior that caters to the driver’s needs, yet elegantly designed with comfort in mind. And of course, a generous helping of horsepower, available in two ﬂ avors. It’s not enough to simply read about the BMW X . This is a vehicle that must be driven to be truly savored. Welcome to driving bliss.

ATRULYREWARDINGDRIVESHOULD BEABOUTMORETHANJUST PLEASINGTHEDRIVER. From the ground up, the BMW X delivers all the right moves while creating as little waste and as few emissions as possible. Two fuel-efficientTwinPowerTurbo engine options deliver ample amounts of pure horsepower while sipping gas. The lightweight engine in both models is mated to a standard -speed automatic transmission with ideally spaced gear ratios for smoother, cleaner shifting that also contributes to a higher mpg rating. Even the BMW X ’s next-generation xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system offers faster response and improved handling characteristics. But efficiency doesn’t start and stop merely with the powertrain. Auto Start- Stop technology can actually turn the engine off when you’re at a light for increased fuel economy. In every BMW model, innovative resource-saving technologies breathe new and sustainable life into ultimate driving. Take, for example, Brake Energy Regeneration: the battery actually captures the kinetic energy otherwise wasted during coasting and braking, and uses it to help charge the battery. Electric Power Steering con- serves fuel by using the battery’s charge instead of relying on the engine’s output to operate the power steering system. The extensive use of lightweight components also reduces the amount of fuel the BMW X uses to chase after driving joy. The net result of these EfficientDynamics technologies: reduced emissions and less waste – helping to save fuel costs while protecting the resources of the planet. While competitors build all-wheel-drive vehicles designed only to conquer the elements, the BMW X is designed to also live in harmony with them.

Then, of course, the typical BMW SAV characteristics, as well as similarities this BMW The BMW X ’s look harkens back to some classic BMW X touchpoints, while offering some intriguing new variations X shares with the previous one. The classic on a theme. Erik Goplen, automotive designer at BMW Group DesignworksUSA, provides the lowdown on some of the highlights of the BMW X ’s design. “three-eyed face” of the BMW SAV family is very distinctive – the double round headlights and the foglights, which are situated particularly high up and toward the edges of the vehicle’s front end. From the side, you can see that the Hofmeister kink is positioned higher than it is on other models, which lends the windows a special SAV aesthetic. The rear lights are still L-shape and together with the available Xenon Headlights they’re very much in keeping with BMW style. What other distinguishing BMW features does the BMW X have? Well, for example, take the typical double round headlights. They feature a clear and simpliﬁ ed design and are topped off by distinctive chrome- color “eyebrows.” They give the vehicle a more determined look. Plus, of course, there are the classic convex-concave surfaces, which create a shimmering interplay between light and shadow.
