BMW’s been busy lately; they just keep adding models to their lineup. Their newest addition is the massive BMW X7, a full-size SUV that makes even the largest and chunkiest of BMW models look small. The front end and grill design are no doubt BMW – you can tell – but the side and rear look like a slightly sportier hybrid of the Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander. Interesting, to say the least. The inside is even more interesting, though, with their large, spacious windows, and a panoramic glass sunroof that is part of the windshield itself and extends far back to the rear of the car. We imagine it’ll feel almost like a convertible – but without the wind flying in your face. They’ve also piped the car with contour lighting and laser lighting in the roof, which BMW says is meant to “create an atmosphere of balance and tranquility.” They then use “open-pore ash wood with a dark-stained, matte finish” to create harmony in the interior. The interior is quite spacious and large, and the whole thing has what might best be called a minimalist aesthetic – they’ve cut out of the fancy features you’ll see in a lot of models like the M3. There are 12.3″ touchscreen infotainment screens, and there is gesture control and LED lighting.
As for what’s under the hood, BMW’s has yet to share this information. But if past models are any indication, you can expect an array of engine choices to power your ride, with both diesel and gas well represented. There’s also talk of a hybrid engine if that’s your style, and you can probably bet on an M7 to find it’s way to market in a few years.
But the one thing that is for sure, is that the BMW X7 is one of the most luxurious and spacious SUV’s you’ve ever seen. It hits showrooms next year.
