The fresh new 2023 BMW X7 has been spied testing recently, and is partially camouflaged on the front and back. However, at first glance, we noticed some mild upgrades over the outgoing model. The front of the upcoming X7 is completely revised, featuring new headlights and grille. Actually, thanks to that, the latest generation looks refreshed and much more attractive.
Furthermore, besides exterior changes, the BMW X7 will also receive some upgrades inside. According to some of the reports, we can expect an updated cabin with the same technology designed for the new BMW 7-Series. If that happens, the X7 interior will be a step up in luxury compared to the current generation.
2023 BMW X7 Facelift
The spied prototype of the upcoming 2023 BMW X7 looks refreshed and is wearing a mild camo. Obviously, the mild facelift is present, and the X7 comes with a more attractive styling than before. First of all, the face of the X7 is completely revised, but it still dominates.
Furthermore, the caught SUV features a new pair of LED headlights and a new grille. As we can see, the headlights are positioned lower than we used to see. This will result in a more sinister, brooding look. Also, the conjoined kidneys present on the current model grille may be split with this facelift. On the back, we noticed the same taillights as well as the new sporty exhaust system.
It isn’t clear what BMW has planned to changes inside the 2023 BMW X7. However, the interior may also be new, with the same technology present in the latest generation of the 7-Series. That means X7 will step up in luxury compared to the current generation. The seating layout will remain the same surely, and we can expect three rows of seats and plenty of room for seven passengers.
Naturally, and typically for BMW, there will be plenty of fine leather and quality materials over the cabin. If rumors are true, the X7 will gain the same standard equipment package as the BMW 7-series. That means we should expect at least quad-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, panoramic moonroof, 12.3-inch digital driver information display, heated/20-way power-adjustable multi-contour front seats, and ambient cabin lighting.
