SUV segment is growing enormously fast. Literally, every established carmaker is offering a wide lineup of SUVs and crossovers. BMW is no different, as the upcoming 2020 BMW X7 is about to arrive. This SUV looks futuristic, especially the front end highlighted by the extremely large kidney grille. The full-size three-row SUV will arrive later in 2019 and it will be astonishing in every possible way.
The premium BMW X7 is perfect for families and it shares plenty of styling cues with the X5 and X6 models. Every inch of the vehicle looks modern and attractive. That includes the interior as well. Under the hood, X7 is offering two options. The xDrive40i comes with the 3.0-liter engine and the xDrive50i with the 4.4-liter V8 unit.
The forthcoming 2020 BMW X7 is 203-inch long full-size SUV. When the concept was released, no one actually believed the production model will look exactly the same. But it did. The X7 looks very attractive, imposing and futuristic. The design is very stylish and modern. The front end sports one of the largest front grilles we’ve seen so far.
Kidney grille is flanked by the attractive LED headlights. Premium look continues in the back with the taillights similar to the taillights on the X5 model. Even the rear bumper is very similar, if not the same but larger. Optional moonroof is huge and one of the most popular choices among the customers.
2020 BMW X7 Interior Details

The second row is a bench for three, but customers can opt for the individual captain’s chairs. The third row is also roomy and it can easily fit the adults. Trunks space is rated at 48.6 cubic feet.
Up front, the dashboard is classic BMW’s. That means the dash is driver-oriented and it looks premium.
