They are smoked headlamp unit, smoked LED tail lamp, black chrome exhaust tips, glossy signature black kidney grille and sporty 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. The exterior updates are fittingly in line with the Shadow moniker as the ‘Shadow’ smoke effect and the overall mean stance of the special edition could become more appealing for customers compared to the regular version.
The German luxury automaker has managed to carry the same sporty theme inside the cabin as well. The interior boasts seats upholstered in red and black colours while there is an 8.7-inch central display as well as a 10.5-inch virtual instrument cluster. No mechanical updates have been made as the Shadow edition continues to use a 2.0-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel powertrains.
The 2.0-litre petrol mill is good enough to pump out a maximum power output of 252 hp and 350 Nm torque and it is claimed to accelerate from zero to 100 kmph in 5.8 seconds. The diesel, on the other hand, develops 190 horsepower and 400 Nm torque and it can sprint from nil to 100 kmph in 7.2 seconds.
The engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard fitment. Next up, BMW is preparing to launch the new generation X3 in India on April 19 and its production has begun in its local facility in Tamil Nadu.
