Exclusive

One of the most distinctive executive cars on the market, this picture displays the "band of light" composed of thirteen separate panes of glass.

The XM Break is one of the most capacious in its class.

The thirteenth pane of glass is an inner rear screen which provides rear passengers with protection from the elements when the tailgate is open.

Rear passengers even have their own heating/ventilation system.
