I went to a private showing of the X7 (closed door, stripped of my belongings before I went in...)

Pre-production model, but gorgeous SAV. Expect new X5 but on steroids. 22 way adjustable seats in front with heated and cooled captains chairs in the second row. Three individual moonroofs per row of seats, 21 and 22 inch wheels options. Ambient lighting and wood trim options everywhere with stitched leather door panels. All seats are power to move, fold, etc. Third row was roomier than expected, as I am 6'3" and I had no trouble fitting. Third row has their own surround speakers and climate controls. To me the kidneys on the front didn't look that out of place compared to photos. Front end is very sharp and masculine. Not to mention laser lights as an option. (!) Extremely livable, was a beauty! Can't wait to see them in my showroom.

All that "real estate" in the interior and that's the best screen design they can come up with?

Looking better & better. Wondering if they'll have standard non-captain's 2nd row for those looking to get 7 people inside

Start/Stop button is now on the center console button island, same as on the 8er and X5. It's an actual pressable button, not a screen, regulations wouldn't allow it to be a tactile surface anyway. The button will be metallic in stock form, and glass if you tick the Crafted Clarity package together with the gear lever and volume knob.

Not sure why this test prototype seems to have another Start/Button at the traditional location though, either it's a fake sticker or it's real but only for the prototype.

The dash mounted one to the left of the center air vents is a fake decal. Real Ignition button is on the center console to the left of the gear selector.

This thing is turning out to be a carbon copy of the X5 both inside and out. I was hoping for more differentiation between them given the price difference.

That white and blue interior makes me puke. Sorry. And blue Alcantara roof liner???? Reminds me of an 80s Toyota previa van that had an all blue interior. Including the roof. And all plastics. Yikes.

Yeah maybe just more options for x7 although x5 has everything so more like silly options.

It's more about 3rd row and 2nd row captains thrones that is the real differentiator since the x5 2nd row is just ok and 3rd is just useless except for kids.

Saw this car fully revealed about 2 weeks ago thanks to being on the VIP program with my local dealer. The car inside is just a new X5. It's also the size of a bus and the kidney grilles look like the Furness from Home Alone 1.

I don't really like anything about it, maybe the front headlights that's probably about it.

That's beige and black, looking blueish due to poor lighting conditions

if you cycle through all the pics you'll see some contrast against actual black surfaces. i believe it's blue.

blue or black, not my cup of tea. think a sportier option better suits the vehicle
