Please check out 2nd row seating leg room, when the front seats are fully back. And check out how the 3rd row folds and/or stows when not in use, for how it opens up trunk space.

Thanks in advance!

I've already seen the new X7 in the flesh in Montrery Car Week last month.

I'm happy to report that the 2nd row seating is plentiful with the front seats situated in a reasonable position (I'm 5'10").

I can confirm the 2nd row seats is a bench and not captain chairs.

Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the 3rd row. Access is easy as the 2nd row has a push button automatic fold. However, don't expect to be comfortable back there. The current gen Q7 gives you a good idea how much leg room to expect. It's definitely longer than the +2 configuration in the X5. With the 3rd row up, expect a much smaller trunk space. And unlike a van which has a deep trunk (vertically), the X7 isn't deep as you should expect the typical BMW SUV trunk setup with the removable floor.

Overall, don't expect much in terms of a space upgrade. BMW literally built a MB GLS and Q7 competitor. From the D pillar, it almost looks like a GLS.

The one thing I was impressed with is the interior build quality. It's another step from from the current gen X5.

Great info, ty. I've had a deposit down for a while and really want this truck to meet my expectations. Sounds like it will with the exception of the fact the V8 won't get the upgrade to the 8 Series' until next year (absurd) and the third row might be cramped.

The q7 is awful, as far as that goes, but the GLS comfortably accommodates two 6' 1' passengers in the back. The headroom, legroom, and shoulder room are 38.9" 35" and 50.5", respectively, in that vehicle. You need a Navigator to touch that (37.3" 36.1" and 64.2"), which is a full foot wider back there, has an inch more legroom, but 1.6" less headroom. And drives like a boat.

So if the X7 doesn't compare favorably to the GLS, what exactly is the point of building an x7!!??

FYI, the second row will have 2 seater as an option

Thanks, Flying Ace. How do the 3rd row seats fold or stow?

Are they offering a 3rd row delete? I would consider that if it gives more trunk space. My X5 is my 5 days a week dog hauler (he's in the trunk) so am looking for more space.

I am sure you can just fold them flush with the cargo area.

.

The second row captain chairs should be a option from what I am told by our NA rep. I remember him telling me that earlier in the year, but then again that was a handful of months back so this could have been just on the prototype and decided to ditch it but Im thinking they will have it as a option. The x7 also is no wider then the x5 as it would cost a shit load to redo the factory line to create steps to make a wider unit

fold them down like the +2 seats in the X5. They should fold down flush.

Maybe sacrilege in these parts, but anyone who wants a somewhat useable third row should look at the Land Rover Discovery. I was stunned at how practical the 3rd row is. If it's important to you that is...

Aha, thanks! So the 3rd row stows to create a flat trunk floor, yes? This would be great news.

correct, 3rd row folds flat into the trunk similar to the +2 3rd row in the X5.

MB's roll out isn't much better. There were rumors and spy pics of the new GLE/GLS for about a year now. Speculation was 2019 model year was going to be the new units. Then they dropped the bomb and released the 2019 ordering guide with both remaining unchanged. '20 GLE was just shown a the Paris show a few weeks ago and still waiting for the GLS. So in this regard, I'd give the +1 to BMW.

There is definitely a market to be captured here that the GLS has been holding onto. A vehicle not as long and truck-like (handling) as the Suburban/Escalade ESV/Navigator/Expedition but also with a usable 3rd row and a step above the typical mid-size suv's w/ 3rd row offerings. Personally, we ordered a '19 GLS450 not wanting to wait it out for the new one or the X7 to hit the ground. Pre-ordering an X7 w/o a production date, specs, nor pricing wouldn't work.

The LR D3/D4's (LR3/LR4 here in the US) have an excellent 3rd row that an adult can fit in. But then again, you have to deal with everything else that comes w/ owning a Rover. I had an LR3 for only 2 years and still get a headache thinking about it.
