That’s where the devil hides, after all

As of December 2017, BMW will be offering two appearance-tweaked models within its SUV range: the X5 Special Edition and the X6 M Sport Edition.

You could say Santa has come earlier this year for those in the market for a BMW SUV, as Munich cooked up two visually-imbued models.

One of them is the X5 Special Edition, which combines the M Sport package with Dakota leather seat upholstery or Alcantara in combination with Anthracite/Black and M logos. Courtesy of BMW Individual, customers can opt for the Merino leather upholstery available in five color choices.

Additionally, the X5 Special Edition features sun protection glass and the brand’s Multifunctional Instrument Display. However, the latter is not available for the BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance. Also, the Special Edition can be specified on any X5 version, except the X5 M50d.

In the BMW X6 camp, buyers get the option of getting the so-called X6 M Sport Edition. Inside, the package adds carbon fiber trim among other décor bits and bobs while on the outside, a new metallic color hue is provided: Long Beach Blue.

Along with it, you can also specify the Carbon Black and Mineral White body paints (also metallic). Also on the visual side, the X6 M Sport Edition gets 20-inch M alloy wheels as standard, but you can further upgrade to 21-inch rims – either way, you get mixed-size run-flat tires as part of the deal.

Just like with the X5 Special Edition, the X6 M Sport Edition can be had on all X6 versions, except the BMW X6 M50d.

Here’s a short story of BMW’s xDrive setup from inception to present day.
