There is some additional space under the cover:

LOL.…sure that adds 5 liters max.

Still a glaring miss.

This is a BIG fail from BMW.
So I wasn't that wrong after all, I own a 2020 X5 and immediately you feel the difference on the cargo area capacity

I wonder why BMW is not taking advantage of the sides of the trunk. Looks like there's a lot of space to be wasted behind the 2nd set of rear lights...?

X5 has space underneath as well, and seemingly more of it.

Not really. Yes, X5 has some space under the cover, but it is shallow and you can't put much there. You can place things like lithium jump starter, inflator or snow brush type small items.
But iX is very deep and likely more usable.

I haven't seen the iX in person, but from the pic, looks like narrow and deep (iX) vs larger and more shallow? Depends upon what you want to put there I guess, but neither are game changing space and it becomes fairly useless if you regularly keep anything sizable in the main cargo space that would have to come out to get below..
