2019 BMW X7
This week we saw BMW launch its biggest vehicle yet in the form of the 2019 X7. The full-size, three-row SUV is available to order now and will start delivery next March. It sports a handsome design, and the interior is much more luxurious than we’re used to seeing from BMW. It should prove a hit for buyers looking for a luxury family hauler.
