The all-new BMW X7 SUV has been spotted in India very recently. The vehicle has been snapped somewhere in Chennai, courtesy Automobili Ardent, with mild camouflage which suggests that the launch is around the corner. The new BMW X7 will be the company's first ever seven-seater SUV that has a generous wheelbase of 3105mm, suggesting towards a roomier cabin. The front end of the SUV gets the company's signature kidney grille but this time around, it is much broader and wider. Moreover, the said portion of the SUV also gets large air intakes along with a bold looking muscular bumper. Furthermore, you get sleek LED headlamps that offer better illumination than the regular units. As one would normally expect from a premium BMW SUV, the cabin of the upcoming X7 will offer multiple features like four-zone automatic climate control and a panoramic glass roof.
