BMW X7 (facelift) SUV spied on test; design details revealed
German automaker BMW is expected to unveil its facelifted X7 SUV by early-2022. In the latest development, a camouflaged test mule of the upcoming four-wheeler has been spied, revealing its key design details. The images suggest it will have a split headlamp setup, a large kidney grille, blacked-out wheels, roof rails, and revised taillights. Here are more details.
The car will have roof rails and twin exhaust tips
The new BMW X7 will sport a sculpted hood, a kidney grille, a wide air dam, and a split LED headlight setup. On the sides, the car will be flanked by roof rails, blacked-out B-pillars, ORVMs, sharp body lines, and blacked-out multi-spoke wheels. Dual exhaust tips, revised taillights, a shark-fin antenna, and a window wiper will grace the rear end of the SUV.
It will be offered with two engine choices in India
In India, the new BMW X7 should be fueled by a 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder petrol engine that makes 335hp/450Nm and a 3.0-liter, 6-cylinder diesel mill offered in two tunes: 261.5hp/620Nm and 394hp/760Nm. The international-specific model might get new powertrains.
Inside, there will be ventilated seats and nine airbags
The new BMW X7 is expected to have a 7-seater cabin with ventilated leather seats, auto climate control, and a multifunctional power steering wheel with cruise control. It is likely to house a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay. Nine airbags, electronic stability control, crash sensors, and a rear-view camera should ensure the safety of the passengers.
