To mark the X5’s 10th birthday, BMW has launched a special edition version of the second generation SUV or as the Bavarian marketers prefer to name it, SAV which is short for Sport Activity vehicle.

The special edition X5’s cabin has been upgraded with a Nappa leather upholstery, ‘Piano Black’ trim, anthracite headlining and some other additional features that the company decided to keep for itself…

The package also includes 10-Year’ plaques fitted to the front doors, front door sill plates and on the dashboard.

Overall, 2,000 X5 xDrive35d 10-Year Edition models will be available worldwide with approximately 10 per cent of production destined for the UK where the diesel-powered versions account for a staggering 95 percent of total X5 sales.
