The interior of the production version of the seven-seat BMW X7 SUV has been unveiled on spy photos. It is designed in style of already presented 2017 iPerformance Concept.
The cabin features the new BMW 8-Series-styled dashboard, a large iDrive touch screen similar to that in the 5-Series sedan. The materials of interior decor are leather, wood and Alcantara.
Unlike smaller X5 and X6, the X7 has three rows of seats for six people.
This large SUV is built on the CLAR platform used before in the new 7-Series flagship sedan. The X7 shares diesel and petrol engines with the latter, including the most powerful in the V12 lineup. There will be a hybrid modification with xDrive40e producing 313 hp.
The model will debut in Los Angeles in November 2018 and then go on sale. It will be a rival for the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Land Rover Range Rover, Audi Q7 and the Cadillac Escalade.
The key markets for the X7 will be the USA, China and the Middle East.
