The new X7 can best be thought of as a stretched X5 and that’s just fine by me. The latest X5 really impressed us with it’s more luxurious cabin and the refinement of its ride. The biggest change for the X5 of course in 2019 was the loss of the third row option. That makes sense of course because the X7 is now the BMW for you if you want a third row. With the X7 BMW decided to set their sights higher than making an XC90 or Q7 competitor and instead aimed straight for the jugular of the Mercdes GLS. It’s apparent in the price tag, the performance, the size and, yes, even the luxury in the cabin. Does this make the X7 BMW’s new American flagship?
