BMW India has gone ahead and listed the first ever X7 SUV, which was globally unveiled recently, on their website. For now, customers can register their interest in the SUV, until it is launched in the country. Expect BMW to reveal the prices of its biggest SUV yet for the Indian market, by the end of January 2019.
Recently, the X7 was also spied in India, covered in camouflage. This further confirms the fact that its launch is right around the corner. BMW debuted the first ever X7 at the 2018 LA Auto Show.
The X7 will go up against the Mercedes-Benz GLS and Land Rover Discovery and is bigger than both these SUVs. It is also the only SUV in the company’s lineup that can seat seven people.
