It’s been a very long time coming for a real, seven-seat BMW SUV. For years, its essential German rival has had a three-row luxurious SUV, within the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, but BMW hasn’t had such a automobile. Certain, the BMW X5 has a 3rd row choice, but it surely’s actually small and unusable of people with legs. So it’s extra of an afterthought on a two-row SUV than a real third row. Now, although, the Bavarians are on the point of debut their very own GLS-fighting SUV with the BMW X7.
Earlier than we see the real-deal BMW X7, although, we’re going to be teased with an idea of the upcoming three-row SUV. BMW just lately teased this upcoming idea on Fb, with a top-down picture of an SUV with a large glass roof and the potential of a 3rd row and a caption of “Modernity, luxurious and presence. On level. Keep tuned for the large reveal on September eighth.”
Within the picture, we see what’s actually an idea SUV. That huge glass roof is most certainly not production-ready, because it’s uncertain such a roof would cross rollover crash testing. There’s a form of “Y” formed brace by way of it however nonetheless. Apart kind the glass roof, although, there isn’t a lot to discern from this idea teaser. We will see that its facet mirrors are very slim and concept-like, so we all know it isn’t going to be a manufacturing automobile. However the hood and nostril appears to be fairly customary for a BMW SUV.
Being that the picture is from so excessive up, we are able to’t actually perceive simply how large the SUV is. Nevertheless, we do know that will probably be the model’s largest and flagship SUV. It’ll lastly give BMW a automobile to compete with the highly regarded and extremely profitable Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class. We gained’t know what the BMW X7 Idea shall be precisely, however we’ll discover out September eight, simply forward of the Frankfurt Motor Present. We’re additionally more likely to see it there, in Frankfurt, within the flesh.
