BMW present s X7 SUV as new flag­ship

Auto Today - - Update! -

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.
