BMW had digitally unveiled its new flagship SUV, the X7, which is set to take on the Land Rover Discovery and the Mercedes-Benz GLS.

At 5,150mm x 2,000mm x 1,805mm, the BMW X7 is 158mm longer and 60mm taller than the fourth-gen X5 (yet-to-be-launched). The wheelbase length itself is just over 3.1m.

The new X7 is likely to be assembled in the country when it arrives here and is certain to spice up the competition in the luxury SUV segment.

And yes, that huge kidney-grille design has been carried over basically unscathed and is said by the Munich-based luxury carmaker to be the biggest ever for a BMW.

Accompanying the large front grille are sleek LED headlamps which are standard across all variants and come equipped with quintessential daytime running lights.

At the back, the X7 reminds one of the 7 Series sedan with its golf club-like LED tail lamps that are connected by a chrome applique. It gets a two-section electrically operated tail-gate as standard. Both the second and third row seats are foldable and can increase the 1376 liters of boot space into a massive 2560 liters.

The X7 rides on either 21- or 22-inch wheels wrapped in either all-season or high-performance summer tires, but BMW says that its 8.7 inches of ground clearance and available off-road traction control modes will give it four-wheeling abilities than most buyers are unlikely to tap into. Let's see how they stack up, with the X5 on the left and X7 on the right in the comparisons below. You can check out our reveal articles at the top of the page for both the X5 and X7 to get specifics on features and equipment, but from a driver's perspective the smaller X5 is a dead ringer for the X7. Four-zone climate control, ambient lighting, a three-part panoramic roof glass, and leather are all also standard for the X7. The Off-Road package also calibrates throttle, brake, stability control and torque split together with the height of the air suspension to traverse all types of terrain conditions easily.

It's also fitted with the latest safety systems BMW has developed, including active cruise control with stop & go, driving assistant with steering and lane control, lane change and departure warning, evasion aid, crossing traffic warning and parking assistant with a rear view camera. And who is seriously my with luxury and performance, creates reaches for the M50d, which comes to 400 HP and 760 Nm, the balanced 2.3 tons in 5.4 seconds to 100 kph, as the Only 250 km/h and 7.0 litres specified.

Evidently, BMW have the BMW X7 aimed at the American market. The X7 is also available with an optional "Off-Road" package.

It is the largest model in the BMW X line-up combining outstanding powertrain and chassis technology as well as practicality and versatility. As long as you have at least AED300,000 because that is the expected starting price in the United States, about $75,000 to $80,000 - once the BMW X7 reaches our shores in local "full-options" trim, the price will climb way above that...
