BMW launches the first-ever 2019 BMW X7, the pinnacle of BMW’s X Sport Activity Vehicle lineup. The BMW X7 builds on the class leading comfort, handling, safety and technology of all the previous BMW X Sport Activity Vehicle model lines that have been produced at Plant Spartanburg since 1999.
The 2019 BMW X7 offers standard three row seating for 7 with optional Second-row Captain’s Chairs offering a more exclusive seating arrangement for 6. Standard two-axle air suspension, 21-inch alloy wheels and advanced driver assistance systems ensure that the all-new BMW X7 lives up to expectations of style, driver engagement, passenger comfort and all-weather and all-terrain capability.
BMW X7 Exterior: A New Dimension in Luxury
BMW has pulled back the covers on a new definition of automotive luxury. The BMW X7 blends presence, exclusivity and spaciousness with the versatile and agile driving properties customers would expect from a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV). The newest and largest model in the BMW X line-up uses outstanding powertrain options and chassis technology, plus generous levels of space in each of its three rows of seats, a luxurious ambience and advanced equipment features, to deliver unparalleled experiences for the driver and passengers.
BMW’s new design language brings modern elegance to the exterior of the BMW X7, visual poise, assurance and an overriding sense of authority. The all-new X7 represents the next stage in the premium carmaker’s ongoing model offensive in the luxury segment.
At 5151 mm in length, 2000 mm wide and 1805 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 3105 mm – the X7 displays harmonious proportions and establishes itself as the new head of the BMW X model family. A new use of forms, dominated by clearly structured surfaces and precise lines lends the BMW X7 its modern aura. The largest kidney grill ever designed features very prominently at the front. Together with the slim twin headlights extending up to the grill, it emphasizes the width of the car and creates presence.
BMW X7 Interior: More Space for an Exclusive Ambiance
The impressive open expanses of the BMW X7 interior bring a new sensation of space to the luxury segment. The three rows of seats treat the driver and passengers to an exceptional feeling of roominess within the X7’s elegantly appointed interior surroundings. Expansive surfaces and clean structures give the instrument panel a modern look and its lines flow smoothly into the door panels. Large trim surfaces framed with electroplated accents on the instrument panel and center console enhance the interior’s elegant and exclusive aura.
Grouped together clearly in the center console are the iDrive Controller, newly designed gear selector, the start/stop button, the Driving Experience Control switch controls, electronic parking brake switch and controls governing the settings for the air suspension and optional off-road modes. The control panel for the heating and air conditioning system also has a new modern design.
A standard three-panel electronically controlled panoramic glass sunroof floods the interior with light. Combined with the large windows, the all-new BMW X7 offers a very open an airy environment to all vehicle occupants, irrespective of which seat they are in. Electrically controlled sliding headliner shades are standard for the front, center and rear sunroof with the third row passengers having their own controls for the rear sliding shade.
In either standard or optional configuration, the second-row seats in the X7 slide fore and aft through 145 mm of travel. Adjustment of the fore/aft position – like all other seat positions and backrest angles – is electric for the first, second and third row of seats. The backrests of the seats in the second and third rows can be folded down and raised electrically via switches located on the driver’s side as you enter through the rear doors and in the cargo area. The seats in the second row can also be tilted forward fully to make getting in and out as easy as possible for third-row passengers.
