A couple of months ago, I blogged about the BMW X7; however, I hadn’t had a chance to see the car in real life. My assumption was that it would look like a stretched version of the X5 – a kind of weird looking vehicle for families.
A few weeks ago, I saw a BMW X7 M50d in Shoreditch, London. For those of you who have no clue about Shoreditch in London, it is the hipster area in the east of the city, and I am really surprised to see an X7 over there.
Based on my first impression, the BMW X7 does not look that bad. BMW designers have managed to extend the X5 but not ruin the proportions, so it doesn’t have a weird look. Of course, you can sense something is wrong with the vehicle, but it is not that bad.
In addition, BMW has managed to vanish the boring seven-seater impression. Most of these extended SUVs are for families because they need psychical space, yet at the same time, they are driving something really boring. With the X7, the boring family SUV just became the cool SUV.
To be honest, if you need a seven-seater SUV, the BMW X7 is probably the best-looking one. Also, you can flaunt your high spec with a rear differential for better traction on your ski trips.
