The first gen BMW X5 started the trend of SUV's being actually sporty and its success had led to the explosion of the SUV segment. Today the Porsche Cayenne and Range Rover Sport to name a few are one of the many 'sporty' SUV's around. BMW itself has expanded its SUV range and now the X6 occupies the sporty end of the range with the X5 being the family luxury SUV.
So the new gen X5 is better in every way but if you want something more there is always the BMW Individual range. Factory-fitted exterior and interior equipment options lift this SUV to a whole new level of luxury. BMW Individual paintwork comprises of seven layers of paint and the addition of special colour pigments and new shades available for the new BMW X5 are Ruby Black metallic and Pyrite Brown metallic. Of course there is the 20-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design which add the necessary muscle to this SUV.
Inside there is the BMW Individual fine-grain full Merino leather option available in the shades Amaro Brown and Criollo Brown. This is carefully selected, entirely unblemished leather. BMW Individual interior trim strips have a option of Piano Finish Black and Sen Light Brown.
We think this add an extra layer of luxury to this SUV which is desirable. BMW has also announced X5 M50d with a six-cylinder diesel with 381 bhp and a peak torque of 740 Newton metres.
The new BMW X5 will be coming to India next year.
