BMW's reveal process for the production X7 continues, with the brand demonstrating the car's off-road ability in a new video showing the car still heavily disguised.
Luckily, we already know what the car will look like, thanks to patent images which recently surfaced on the internet. The car's styling almost matches that of the controversial Concept X7 iPerformance, albeit with slightly toned down features.
The images, which first surfaced on Brazilian car site Allthecars, show the full exterior styling of the Range Rover rival, complete with the car's oversized kidney grilles and distinctive taillight treatment. A choice of wheels ranging in size from 19in to 22in will be available, but none are illustrated in the images.
An X7 development car was also recently spotted testing with M package trim, showing how sportier versions of the future Range Rover rival will look.
Due for reveal at the Los Angeles motor show in November, the range-topping SUV, which will also go up against the Mercedes-Benz GLS, is heavily inspired by the X7 iPerformance concept at last year's Frankfurt motor show.
BMW's upcoming seven-seater will initially feature a naturally aspirated engine, rather than the hybrid powertrain of the X7 iPerformance. However, a hybrid variant will come later. It is too soon for BMW to confirm the full engine lineup of the X7, but it's known that an X7 M50d M Performance, as well as xDrive40i, xDrive50i and xDrive30d variants will be available from launch, with the 3.0-litre diesel in 30d, 40d and 50d guises and the twin-turbo 4.4-litre petrol V8 from the X6 xDrive50i expected to make up the meat of the range.
