It has emerged that the upcoming BMW X7 could take design inspiration from the Vision Future Luxury Concept introduced early last year.
While the concept was initially created to preview the latest-generation BMW 7-Series, a user of Bimmerforums claims that the X7 will also be somewhat inspired by the Vision Future Luxury Concept. More specifically, the user said the front fascia of the BMW X7 will be reminiscent of the concept.
In typical SUV style however, the front fascia will be more upfront than the concept as well as larger. Amongst the most notable styling features will be the large kidney grille which will be even bigger than the grille of the 7-Series.
Underpinning the BMW X7 will reportedly be the same platform set to debut on the next-generation BMW 7-Series. This platform will reportedly be dubbed the HPLC architecture and it will replace the outgoing 35up chassis. It also makes sense that the X7 will be based around this platform considering prototypes have been spied testing disguised as the next-gen 7-Series.
From an engine standpoint, the German marque will offer both six and eight-cylinder units with a 6.0-litre V12 set to top out the range.
It seems likely that an ultra-luxurious version of the X7 will be produced to rival the Bentley Bentayga, Rolls-Royce Cullinan SUV and a potential Mercedes-Maybach SUV.
