    BMW X7 2019

    BMW must be kidding...this thing looks hideous. Sideline and rear look as if stolen from the old Mercedes GL. Smiley

    Even the interior isn't nice... Smiley

    Re: BMW X7 2019

    Hideous is right.

    Sad what has happened to BMW design. 


    Re: BMW X7 2019

    Same. There is not a single nice BWM design except maybe for the i8. Makes Tesla look like top models 


    Re: BMW X7 2019

    There are markets where the X7 will thrive due to its sheer size and its flashy, ostentatious style. I expect that it will sell well in the USA, too angry

    For Europe the new X5 is more than enough.

    That grill will really ooze class once it's spiced up with the M colors on the vanes.

    (Why do I only see this on Maseratis and loud BMWs?)


    Re: BMW X7 2019

    Gives the impression that the age of the design team in charge was 80+ yers old angry

    "more than enough" is correct - talked with my BMW dealer, I am not the only one who canceled his X5 order because of the increase of width by nearly 7cm. But it think it doesn't matter, only 20% of production is sold in Europe

    Is the new X5 even wider thant the new Cayenne? I think Cayenne is 198 and X5 200 if I am not mistaken, I would never buy such a car for the Swiss streets.


    Re: BMW X7 2019

    Just buy an X3 instead of an X5.

    What a slab sided monstrosity, looks like a hearse!

    Q8 is a 1,000 times better looking 


    Re: BMW X7 2019

    And my X5 is already difficult to navigate into (European) underground parkings angel

    I feel bad for those X7 rims.

    Re: BMW X7 2019

    I think the X7 has its place in the automotive world. BMW must have done their research.

    It will be a success for the right customers at the right markets in the world. Not everybody on the planet has the same taste when it comes to cars and most other things.

    I don't think that other full-size  SUVs like the Cullinan, Bentayga or lower down M-B GL, not to mention some US-only models like the Escalade, Yukon etc. look any better than the X7.

    I love big ass SUVs, only with kids and with a wife with a shoe fetish you can really appreciate these big SUVs but the design is hideous. Smiley

    Would even prefer this one (Ford Expedition Max) we had during our last US trip over the X7... Smiley

    Yes...if I had to pay for the cars. Smiley I liked the Ford a lot, even if it was a V6 Biturbo (I think) and not a V8.

    I don't like the X7 and it costs much more than the Ford.

    Re: BMW X7 2019

    "While some recent BMWs have struggled to find their target demographic, the X7 has a few customer profiles at its disposal.

    One of them is the North American family who has often struggled with the space in the X5 and have been asking for a larger, true seven-seater luxury SUV. Those families have often found comfort in the design of other brands, but now the new X7 could fulfill their requirements.

    The other X7 customer lives in China where every premium automaker has been focusing on producing larger, luxury cars for the Chinese customer who mostly enjoys the rear seat experience.

    Next, we have the Middle East where social status is the main driver behind a car purchase, which puts the X7 on top of the luxury goods list of Middle Easterns.

    Last on the list is Eastern Europe, with markets like Russia where BMW SUVs have enjoyed being the market leaders, so naturally, the X7 should feel right at home."

    IMO the above makes a lot of sense. It also indicates why the X7 is not to the taste of people on this Forum.

    Hmm...maybe you're right but I still have my doubts (about the design of this car).

    Well I can't really fault you for that, I had a Durango GT when I was in Arizona, and it was perfect for my needs. It also looks better than the X7. Smiley

    Re: BMW X7 2019

    I love the X7. I clearly could see that this would be our next family car. It has good space, all luxury and it is a different design. Couldn't be any happier with how it looks. 


    Re: BMW X7 2019

    Well let’s put it that way, it is at least better and fresher than a Mercedes GLS and way better than an Escalade. There is very little decent competition in that segment of the market.

    I would still prefer the new GLS and Escalade over the X7, believe it or not.

    Right now, I would probably go for the Urus or the Audi RSQ8 though (when it will be available...).

    From a design point of view, I like the Range Rover Sport SVR and the Audi Q8 most.
