Today, BMW launches the first-ever BMW X7, the pinnacle of BMW’s XSport Activity Vehicle lineup.
The BMW X7 builds on the class leading comfort, handling, safety and technology of all the previous BMW X Sport Activity Vehicle model lines that have been produced at PlantmSpartanburg since 1999.
The 2019 BMW X7 offers standard three row seating for 7 with optional Second-row Captain’s Chairs offering a more exclusive seating arrangement for 6. Standard two-axle air suspension, 21-inch alloy wheels and advanced driver assistance systems ensure that the new BMW X7 lives up to expectations of style, driver engagement, passenger comfort and all-weather and all-terrain capability.
BMW X7 exterior: A new dimension in luxury
BMW has pulled back the covers on a new definition of automotive luxury. The BMW X7 blends presence, exclusivity and spaciousness with the versatile and agile driving properties customers would expect from a BMW Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV). The newest and largest model in the BMW X line-up uses outstanding powertrain options and chassis technology, plus generous levels of space in each of its three rows of seats, a luxurious ambience and advanced equipment features, to deliver unparalleled experiences for the driver and passengers.
The largest kidney grill ever designed for a BMW model features very prominently at the front of the new BMW X7. Together with the slim twin headlights extending up to the grill, it emphasizes the width of the car and creates presence.
The rear doors are longer than the front doors, emphasizing the spaciousness of the SAV’s rearcompartment and easing entry and exit for second and third row seat occupants.
BMW X7 Interior: More space for an exclusive ambiance
The impressive open expanse of the BMW X7 interior brings a new sensation of space to the luxury segment. The three rows of seats treat the driver and passengers to an exceptional feeling of roominess within the X7’s elegantly appointed interior surroundings. Expansive surfaces and clean structures give the instrument panel a modern look and its lines flow smoothly into the door panels. Large trim surfaces framed with electroplated accents on the instrument panel and center console enhance the interior’s elegant and exclusive aura.
A standard three-panel electronically controlled panoramic glass sunroof floods the interior with light. Combined with the large windows, the new BMW X7 offers a very open an airy environment to all vehicle occupants, irrespective of which seat they are in.
