BMW present s X7 SUV as new flagship
BAVARIAN CARMAKER, BMW presented the new X7 and the first thing that we noticed is it sheer size. The X7 is a full-sized SUV which replaces the X5 as the new flagship model, but it has undeniable resemblance to it. While the X7 is undoubtedly bigger and taller in size, the X5 is actually wider. The new X7 gets the largest kidney grille yet and is also long enough to cater to third row. Speaking of third rows, the X7 is the first SUV in the company’s line-up to get the 7-seater layout, but it’s slightly late to the party considering rivals Mercedes-Benz GLS, Range Rover and even the Audi Q7 already have it. The stance of the
X7 is upright with an intimidating angular look, which is not boxy. The styling stays sharp, with the grille taking prominence from most angles and the sleek headlamps gets the J-theme LED DRLs. Engine options include a 3.0-litre, in-line six-cylinder petrol with 335bhp, a 4.4-litre, twin-turbo V8 petrol with 456bhp and a 3.0-litre in-line six-cylin- der diesel with 256bhp and a more powerful 400bhp iteration as well. A plug-in hybrid version is also on the offing but will join the line-up at a much later stage.
