Spy Photos reveals the future BMW X7 interior
As BMW continues the road tests of its next big SUV, before its launch scheduled for the end of the year, our spy photographers have again moved closer to the future model. The BMW X7 surprise here while driving does not present novelties compared to the previous prototypes already seen on the road, but this time, it gives us the opportunity to discover its cabin!
Not surprisingly, the interior of the BMW X7 reminds us of the latest productions of the brand, such as the BMW X3, Series 5 and Series 7. The large leather steering wheel has many buttons, while its handset is fully digital. On the centre console, we find shiny black controls, as well as its famous iDrive infotainment system control wheel. In the centre of the dashboard, we find a touchscreen tablet and many buttons placed under the central vents.
On the outside, however, this prototype of the BMW X7 is similar to all the others we’ve seen on the road, but also to pre-production models that BMW has officially unveiled at its Spartanburg, Carolina plant. from South. The car will be significantly longer than the future BMW X5, with a rather imposing design, a double grille front gaping, intelligent LED tail lights, and chrome exhaust cannulae integrated into the rear bumper. The proportions of this future BMW X7 seem to be quite close to the lines of the Concept X7 performance.
Technically, the new BMW X7 will rely on the modular platform CLAR, which is also found on the Series 7 and Series 5. In terms of engines, we should find blocks six and eight cylinders turbocharged, and a plug-in hybrid model. Although little information has yet filtered out, its range of engines should be modelled on that of the Series 7.
The BMW X7 will have to compete on the market of large SUV Premium three-row seats, among which we find the Mercedes-Benz GLS Class or the Audi Q7. BMW has announced that the new SUV will be unveiled this year, probably in November, while production has started in Spartanburg.
