BMW launched the X4 facelift in India in March with the carmaker offering the SUV coupe solely in M Sport Black Shadow Edition trim. With that variant now sold out, BMW has introduced a new Silver Shadow Edition to the X4 range, which boasts a number of cosmetic changes.
The Silver Shadow Edition of the X4 now gets a high gloss chrome finish on a number of exterior elements, including the kidney grille surround and mesh, bumper inlays and exhaust pipes. The special edition is available in a choice of three exterior colours — Carbon Black, Phytonic Blue and Alpine White. Other design elements such as the slimmer LED headlights, wraparound LED tail-lights and 20-inch M design alloy wheels (now with a diamond cut finish instead of gloss black) remain unchanged.
On the inside, the X4 Silver Shadow Edition features a dual-tone ‘Vernasca’ mocha and black leather upholstery. Besides this, there are no changes made to the design and layout of the cabin compared to the Black Shadow Edition.
On the equipment front, the SUV gets a 12.35-inch, free-standing touchscreen infotainment system with BMW’s gesture control, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system, wireless charger, Heads-up Display (HUD), three-zone automatic climate control, panoramic sunroof, electrically operated tailgate, hands-free parking, adaptive suspension and cruise control.
The new X4 Silver Shadow Edition gets a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine (xDrive 30i) that develops 252hp and 350Nm, with a 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder diesel engine (xDrive 30d) that churns out 265hp and 620Nm. Both engines get an 8-speed automatic gearbox and get BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system as standard.
In terms of rivals, the X4’s only direct competition in India comes from the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe, priced between ₹ 71 lakh and ₹ 85.40 lakh, the only other SUV coupe in the segment.
