This is BMW saying "fuck all y'all" the way they did with E65. It was an ugly car whose design breakthroughs were later adopted by many other manufacturers in milder, more palatable forms.

Three years from now what you see as ugly will be considered modern.

On a less controversial note: have you noticed the new cockpit? It'll come next year not just in the X7, but also in X5, 8, and even 3. And I'll be surprised if 7 doesn't get it at LCI in early '19.

When I first saw the concept X7 my eyes were scarred but it has slowly grown on me. Although the grills are absolutely huge I believe they're paving way for the Rolls Royce grill to fit into the design without the need to modify much. In some of the rolling shots the big grills gave the car a BOSS presence lol but then some angles the grills are just too big. But if we look past the grill the interior is very nice and there are some elements that would trickle down into future BMWs. Pretty sure the production version of the car will have smaller grills and a smaller hockey stick. (But please BMW enough of the ugly hockey stick). Also like one member commented this car isn't targeted toward men, we have the X5M and X6M for that lol. This X7 is targeted toward "Soccer Moms"

"This is BMW saying "fuck all y'all" the way they did with E65. It was an ugly car whose design breakthroughs were later adopted by many other manufacturers in milder, more palatable forms."

The difference was that the E65 ( which is ugly ) and the E60 ( which is damn cool in M5 version ) is that they really were a modern design. There was nothing like it out there, you couldn't say it looks like a mix of this and that existing car. Dame Edna's glasses, yep but it was still fresh. This X7 exterior looks like a mess of existing cars with a gross grill attached. That said if BMW do a similar cleanup between this concept and the production model as they did between the E65 and E60 you could very well be right. But as it is? I have doubts...

I know it's a concept interior, but why capacitive touch buttons for everything. Tactile feedback people! Volume knobs and temperature knobs at a minimum!

Did no one learn anything from Honda's disastrous setup?

A properly designed button feels infinitely more expensive and luxurious than a touch button

I wonder how this front design got approved in room full of people. This is pretty bad for a BMW regardless of taste, as the comments confirm on this thread.

I have been a huge fan of the brand for over 35 years, and been fortunate enough to have owned pretty much every series within the range over the last 25 years, with currently i3, i8, 540xdrive, M4 in my garage with My wife currently on her 4 X5, a X5M, and I have had an order down on the planned new X7 for several years. I so hope that the car doesn't look anything like this on the outside as it is hideous, what were they possible thinking!

The inside will be lovely and a game changer, but surely the outside .........

Let's hope that the designers take a knock to their heads and see what we see from pretty much all angles it's terrible.
