These special edition variants of BMW’s SUV range get black-themed cosmetic updates and some additional features. The X5 and the X6 get contrast red front grille and brake calipers, while the X6 gets an all-black treatment
BMW has pulled the wraps off special edition iterations of the X5, X6 and X7. The X5 and the X6 are on offer as Black Vermillion Edition models while the flagship X7 carries the Frozen Black Edition suffix. So, how are these special edition models different from the regular offerings?
All three special edition models can be had in any colour as long as its black. All three cars get a full black treatment right from the body paint to the bumpers and even the alloy wheels. The X5 and X6 Black Vermillion Edition though get contrast red grille and brake callipers. In the X7 Frozen Black Edition, all of these elements are washed in black as well. All three limited-edition models have been fitted with 22-inch wheels, M Sport brake callipers, an M Sport exhaust system and sun-protection glass. Other changes include laser lights and a glass-finished iDrive controller system with aluminium inlays.
Changes to the interior are similar in nature – the X5 and X6 gets black treatment with contrast red bits while the top-of-the-line X7 gets an all-black treatment. All three cars also flaunt Alcantara headlining to give the cabin a richer experience. All three SUVs will be sold with the existing engine options they are already offered with.
Production of the X7 Frozen Black Edition is expected to start in August and the X5 Black Vermillion Edition in September. BMW will be bringing these limited edition models to India, but a timeline hasn't been defined as yet.
