BMW X7 Spied Inside Out: Flagship SUV Shows Luxurious Two-Tone Leather Cabin

The latest batch of spy shots on the upcoming BMW X7 give us our best look yet inside the luxurious interior of the Bavarian flagship SUV.

The clock is ticking for the world debut of the new BMW X7, which is set to be revealed in the upcoming weeks and thanks to countless scoops, teasers and leaks, we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect.

BMW says that their Range Rover rival will offer “superior driving dynamics” combined with “exceptionally generous interior space”. Being the biggest and most expensive SUV the German car maker will offer, the new BMW X7 will also offer the absolute best in technology, luxury and exclusive features.

The dashboard is typical BMW as expected, with the X7 featuring the company’s latest infotainment system and digital instrument cluster, a combo that debuted with the 8-Series. Judging by the provided photos, the interior looks almost ready for production; we say almost because apparently BMW hasn’t installed yet the right software into the X7’s infotainment system, since it shows an image of the 5-Series on the touchscreen display, instead of itself.

The design of the X7’s dashboard also mixes elements from the 7- and 8-Series, with the center console hosting the same arrangement with the latter, including the new shifter for the automatic transmission. The test car pictured here features a two-tone leather interior, wood inlays, ambient lighting and subtle metal details.

The 2019 BMW X7 will be offered with a range of known powertrains, including a 335hp 3.0-liter straight-six and a 456hp 4.4-liter V8. Reports suggest that the flagship BMW SUV will also debut a plug-in hybrid powertrain while customers in Europe and other select regions will also have a choice between two diesel options.

BMW is expected to reveal the new X7 this October, with a public debut most likely scheduled for the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.

    Zero mention of the fact that this is interior is identical to the new X5…but you can reference that it “mixes elements from the 7- and 8-Series”? Really?

    Boring, boring, boring!

  • Bash

    Well, the third row seat seems cool for a -you know- a third seat!

  • Marc

    Those rims yell base trim, make it look bloated and top-heavy. The top of the range SUV should have nicer/larger wheels on all trims.

  • Matthew Boyd

    As plush as it can be. Not gonna hate because of course it will come in different colors. BMW interiors haven’t been wow, but their not bad either. New infotainment and digital speedo are looking promising though.

  • erly5

    I’m hoping those wheels don’t make it to the showroom, even for the base models. This is a big premium SUV but it doesn’t look it on those wheels!

  • Jason Panamera

    Nice X5 interior, but probably same story will be with new GLS and GLE. Nothing new here.

  • Knotmyrealname

    I hope the Chinese like it. Seems designed with them in mind.

    • steve

      Is that to buy – or to copy the design??

      • Knotmyrealname

        I think to buy. Copying will come as a matter of course.
        But they’ve already been copying it since the initial sketches. That’s how it’ll come out almost concurrently.

    BMW has become too predictable with their non i-cars.

  • no25

    very expected interior.

  • I have been in the X7. There is an option to have more than a few things in crystal. Big crystal. The shift knob is a handful of what looks like a big honkin’ diamond faceted clear jewel. It’s a nice vehicle. big.
