BMW’s SUV lineup has grown over the past few years to six vehicles, but even with all of those ‘utes around, the X6 is only a two-row vehicle with seating for five. There was one final hole for BMW to plug: a three-row SUV. Enter the new 2019 BMW X7.
The X7 comes with (fittingly) standard seating for up to seven occupants across three rows of seats. The X7 (also fittingly) becomes the seventh member of BMW’s SUV family, and it will be built in Spartanburg, S.C., alongside the X3, X4, X5 and X6 (the X1 and X2 are produced in Germany).
Note: Photos shown are of the European version of the X7, but all features discussed below will be available in the U.S.
