BMW iX M60 Design and Features
BMW uses a very different ‘kidney grille’ on this electric vehicle. Fully closed front end wrapped with a unique digital pattern that looks three dimensional. LED headlights are narrower and taillights even slimmer than any other BMW car.
The hood of the iX does not open, so no frunk to see over there. One of the quirkiest features of the car is that front BMW logo can be opened and used to fill up windshield water, as there is no hood area to put necessary stuff like this one.
It is the first BMW SUV that comes with frameless door windows which overall create a sporty vibe around the design. Very uniquely crafted door handles also carry that vibe. When you use Tesla’s or other hidden-type door handles, in order to open the door, you have to push one side and the other side will pop up, and then you hold on to that part to open the door. In the iX, Chinese designer of the vehicle made use of a much simple door handle mechanism. It looks flat, but you don’t have to push or pull thing, just approach your fingers below the slim opening of the handle and the door will open.
On the interior, there is a curved panel sitting beneath the hexagonal shaped steering wheel that houses digital gauge cluster and infotainment system. Screen sizes are 12.3 and 14.9-inches respectively. It sure looks much more technological than the iX’s little brother BMW iX3.
iX also comes with Bowers & Wilkins sound system which packs a total of 30 speakers around the interior. Sound experience is beyond any BMW car available right now, and as all of the engine sounds composed by famous Hans Zimmer, driving the car will be a joy to your ears.
