Munich. With a latest era of a security
car built on a basement of a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) for the
oppulance difficulty segment, a reward carmaker BMW now meets a increased
need for particular insurance and supremacy in any situation. The
new BMW X5 Protection VR6 (combined fuel consumption: 13.0 l/100 km;
total CO2 emissions: 298 g/km*) offers private
people and persons during risk customised insurance opposite violent
attacks, abduction or organized crime. This is mostly a decisive
criterion, generally in regions like South America, Africa or Russia.
The arrangement of array components and additional safety-related
apparatus of a BMW X5 Protection VR6 into a car architecture
was already taken comment of during development. Production is carried
out according to a difficult prolongation standards tangible by a BMW
Group. Thus a BMW X5 Protection VR6 combines a customary operation of
