2018 BMW X7 spied

The BMW X7 has been spied undergoing testing ahead of its sales debut in 2018. Although we can see the overall shape and size of the X7, we can't make out too many of its finer styling details as BMW has fitted false body panels to the fenders, doors and bonnet of this prototype. We can see, though, that the new SUV will feature a set of tall kidney grilles. When it goes on sale, the X7 will be pitched into battle against the Mercedes-Benz GLS and Range Rover, amongst others.
