28 November, 2018 | Last week BMW unveiled their largest and most luxurious SUV ever built during an extravagant black tie event at Zeitz MOCAA in Cape Town. The X7 has serious presence.
The BMW X7, the latest and largest model in the BMW X line-up brings a fresh injection of space to the luxury segment, thanks to the impressive design of its interior and its state-of-the-art equipment. At the same time, the advanced powertrain and chassis technology of the X7 ensures it offers all the off-road prowess, excellent ride comfort and agile on-road handling.
Adding the BMW X7 to its portfolio forms part of the BMW Group’s ongoing model offensive in the luxury segment. The X7 will be built at BMW Plant Spartanburg in the US, and its market launch will begin in March 2019.
At just over five metres in length, two metres wide and 1.8 metres tall, and with a wheelbase of 3.1 metres, the BMW X7 displays harmonious proportions and establishes itself very clearly as the new head of the BMW X model family. The new design language, dominated by precise lines and expansive surfaces, amplifies the car’s authoritative presence.
The BMW X7 comes as standard with LED headlights, while the optional BMW Laserlight has a high-beam range of up to 600 metres and can be easily identified by the blue x-shaped elements inside the headlights. The car’s defining features when viewed from the side are its large windows, high ground clearance and long roofline. Horizontal lines, slim LED lights and the two-section split tailgate emphasise the contemporary styling of the rear end.
A generous sprinkling of chrome elements adds to the luxurious elegance of the BMW X7. The car is fitted as standard with 20-inch light-alloy wheels, while 21- and 22-inch variants can be selected from the options list.
The interior includes Vernasca leather trim, four-zone automatic climate control, a three-section panoramic glass roof, and ambient lighting including the Welcome Light Carpet and Dynamic Interior Light. Among the highlights on the options list are five-zone automatic climate control, the Ambient Air package, the Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge, controls with glass applications, the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System and the rear-seat entertainment professional system. Meanwhile, the Design Pure Excellence equipment line, M Sport package and BMW Individual options allow customers to tailor the interior and exterior design to reflect their personal style.
