    BMW X7

    Photo's of the X7 concept leaked prior to launch at Frankfurt. This makes the Bentayga look like a well resolved and tasteful design which is quite a feat.

    I like the arm rest. 

    Oh, and the side mirrors. They are actually cool too.

    Re: BMW X7

    let's be honest it is more difficult to make a SUV look good than a sports car.

    But THIS....

    Anyway, only a proto right, they actually are not going to commercialise THIS?

    looks like a Korean copy of a Ssangyong

    Is this serious or just an internet joke Smiley

    If BMW will build a car like this I am just speechless. The sheer horror Smiley


    Re: BMW X7

    Hopefully this is just a concept and it will be better in real, because this is ugly inside and out. Sat in a black on black Bentaya yesterday and what a really superb interior. Except for R/R there might be nothing out there that good. Astons aren't than nice.


    Re: BMW X7

    I have owned many various BMW cars (mainly M cars) this is a pigsty on wheels OMG they can't be serious !!!!!!

    BMW concepts tend to be pretty identical to production versions

    It is serious https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/motor-shows-frankfurt-motor-show/bmw-x7-concept-leaks-ahead-frankfurt-motor-show-debut?utm_medium=EMAIL&utm_campaign=Enews%20bulletins&utm_content=ACAR%20ENews%20Bulletin_New%20(07.09.2017)::hero_headline&utm_source=20170907

    Funnily enough my first thought looking at it was also Ssangyong. I would imagine the production car that follows it is not going to differ substantially. The front detailing will likely be altered but it seems BMW are intent on having huge kidney grilles that are visible to the astronauts in the ISS when they gaze out their observation windowsheart

    So, there was this designer at BMW a while back, I think his name was Bangle, maybe they should hire him back for inspiration....

    Re: BMW X7

    It looks fine for what is, which is a glorified minivan. The backend is too busy, but otherwise it's okay. Audi played it safe with their Q7 update and the result is blandness, but none of the vehicles in this segment are very impressive. yes


    Re: BMW X7

    So they copied a Volvo...

     


    Re: BMW X7

    It looks like they did...... a bad Chinese style copy of an XC90 from the side which is ironic now that Volvo are Chinese owned. They also threw in the side gills on the front wings and the continuation lower body bright work insert from a Range Rover Vogue for good measure

    China and the ME will probably be their biggest market for it, so that's not surprising. 


    Re: BMW X7

    Looks more like a Dodge Durango / Jeep Grand Cherokee mash up to me.

    Form follows vomit. How friggin fugly is that?  It must be a joke. 


    Re: BMW X7

    Remove the weird L shaped trim pieces and it's not bad. Reminds me of those ugly Mercedes gill/fin things they stuck on the side of their sports cars.


    Re: BMW X7

    It will stand out from all of the other SUVs I guess.  yes 

    Long stretch to find something sort of nice to say about that.     enlightened


    Re: BMW X7

    I guess it's just a teaser for their upcoming Rolls SUV lol 


    Re: BMW X7

    I like it.

     

     

     

    Just joking. smiley

    Good to see I am not the only one with such a strong opinion about it. The interior is fine, quite in line with current BMW models. The exterior on the other hand... 


    Re: BMW X7

    If they produce it with that grill, or anything close to it, I will stop buying any BMW (currently have two, a 3 sedan and an X-4). I would not want to be seen driving anything even remotely associated with this monstrosity.

    We're lucky Porsches don't have grilles, so we escaped the grille size inflation trend and the resulting gaudiness...

     


    Re: BMW X7

    The front is particularly ugly , maybe Bmw designers were inspired by the latest Lexus SUVs with their giant front grilles. Nice interior though.


    Re: BMW X7

    The interior looks interesting. But the exterior omg what are they thinking.....

    Almost all BMWs got great interiors.

    The front is inspired by BMW designer's barbecue grill...
