Video: WORLD PREMIERE: BMW Concept X7 iPerformance -IAA 2017
We’ve known for quite some time that BMW is planning to introduce a sport-utility vehicle—or “sports activity vehicle,” in BMW-speak—that will be even larger than the X5, and that its name would be X7. Sure, the X5 is pretty large already, but in certain respects, particularly in the third row, it is not large enough. More important, there’s room above today’s X5 for something more premium-feeling to satisfy a luxury market that is abandoning sedans almost wholesale in favor of large, lavish SUVs. At the 2017 Frankfurt auto show, BMW will be previewing the styling and interior of its upcoming big ’un with the Concept X7.
