BMW considering an X7 crossover, re-imagined CS - report

 BMW considering an X7 crossover, re-imagined CS - report
Modified BMW X5 sketch as X7

X8 crossover also possible

Anonymous BMW insider Scott27 has revealed some new details about several possible additions to BMW's lineup.

According to the mysterious poster, BMW is considering an X7 crossover which could compete with the Land Rover Range Rover. Little is known about the model, but it could have car-like styling and use a variety of components from the X5 and 7-Series.

The company could also launch a re-imagined version of the CS concept. Designed to bridge the gap between BMW and Rolls-Royce, the model would slot above the 7-Series and could use a carbon fiber body and structure.

There are also two other models which are considered less likely for production. The first is a China exclusive extra-long wheelbase 7-Series, while the other is an X8 crossover. The latter model would be a "four-door coupe" version of the X7, but it could also be re-invented as an i6.

Needless to say, we're taking everything with a grain of salt but Scott27 has been right in the past so feel free to place your bets.

Always thought the 6-series Gran Coupe is the CS concept equivalent?!

I just say BMW was irrational not to give us a CS coupe,it was stingy n naive whatever the appropriate description now look at ya,CLS is now out of this world...X5 is an excellent car now I doubt the purpose n usefulness of the X7,perhaps its maybe something to compete with GL Class? (it wud be good to have a G Class competitor thou. I just feel BMW is directionless at the moment,thats besides starting new trends.

A friend of mine works and BMW in Germany and explained to me that BMW were considering an X7 back in the day when the original X5 was selling so well. However in the end, they just scaled up the X5, made the the new X3 the same size as the original X5 then introduced the X1 to fill the gap at the bottom. If the next X5 grows by a couple of inches as every new car seems to, I can't see how they can make an SUV much bigger, I think their current SUV line up has it covered pretty well

I feel BMW missed their opportunity with the original CS. The 6 Gran Coupe is essentially what came of the Concept CS. A nice car by all means but it doesn't exactly evoke much emotion with regards to the design BMW could have taken back in 2007. Time has allowed rivals to 'catch-up'. This is especially true since BMW's competitor in Mercedes-Benz appears to be further along with their new design language in the Concept Style Coupe revealed recently.

The x5 already competes with the range Rover. This will be better.
