I'm embarrassed to admit I'm actually getting a little bit excited for this now...

... do I have to hand in my M car?

At the end of the day its tough to make something this size look great. If I'm being realistic with myself I'll probably end up owning one of these because I need a 3 row SUV and not sure what else is truly competitive. We'll see once I can test interior space. I love the full size Range Rover for example but if you put a 3rd row in it the back is worthless. Benz GLS is looking dated to me too so the X7 could end up very well positioned
Full size Range Rover isn't offered with a third row. If they did, it would murder this thing in sales.

It's really this or the GL or maybe a long wheelbase Q7 (if they make one?).

I really don't think this is going to sell well. Not in the first production. Maybe the Lci will fix the grill and it will do better then but that thing is seriously hideous. Just look at the remarks of the forum, only a very small handful of people like it.

Maybe BMW was designing the Rolls Royce SUV, and mixed the designs with the X7 by mistake.

I dig it lol the huge grill gives the car presence on the road. The headlights and big wheel option and design are absolutely gorgeous in my opinion. Keep in mind the X7 appeals to women who currently own Range Rovers or GLS's and everyone has a different taste in cars. Now would I get a Range Rover over an X7? Hell Yeah I would cause its Bad A$$ but I'm more into sporty looks. But I think this car will look way better in person. A lot of new cars these days look absolutely terrible in pictures but not bad/real nice in real life. Give it some time and I'm sure it will grow on most of you as it has on me.

Love the concept/idea of this vehicle. The headlights look great. Needed to fill a gap in the market for Bmw. But wtf were they thinking with that grille and bumper design!?!

is there any room on that front bumper for US states that require a front plate? its going to look awful.

Thank god I am not a customer for this car. It's almost like they built it just to appease people with 3 rows and made it so they dont have to build a lot of them. I could see those headlights showing up in the future lineup though.

I can assure you, we're not.

There hasn't been alot of demand for a third row and frankly I think this front end is awful. (well, the grills anyway)

Yes, I'm still calling it hideous. It's horrible in fact. I hate the lines, I hate the shape, I hate the curvature of the rear hatch I hate the grille shape and design. The whole front is so busy. 8 horizontal grille lines and 3 more per lower grille. I actually see a lot of the new Passat or CC or whatever in the design. I've never liked a single "SUV" produced by VAG and this is no exception. The only one that baarreely looks decent to me is the new Tiguan in the R-Line trim. I simply don't think that SUVs should be 'rounded' that's just me. An SUV should be brute looking/boxy/purposeful. Very feminine if I could go so far as to use this adjective. The equivalent of a Prada handbag on wheels. 100% subjective. This looks like an RS6 on stilts. For that matter, just bring me an RS6... THAT I'd buy over either the X7 or the Q7. lol

This has zero to do with the X7. It may or may not be hideous as well. Hideous isn't a relative term.
