2020 BMW X7 First Impressions – 2018 LA Auto Show

German carmaker confirmed the arrival of the 2020 BMW X7. The debut will happen in October 2019, so all of the speculations about the arrival date are gone. The X7 is the company’s first full-size three-row SUV. The new images are already available as the 2020 model was presented at the LA auto show.

BMW is already offering imposing SUV lineup with premium models such as X5 and sportier X6/M. The X7 should represent a more family-oriented variant with the upscale and roomy interior. This SUV will share a lot with the X5 model, mostly from the outside. The exterior looks very modern and attractive. To this moment, a single drivetrain option is in the offer, and the optional engine is still a mystery.

The windows are also large and the optional moonroof is massive.
