2016 7 Series Rendered as a Touring, Previews the X7

By now i'm sure most of you have seen how the all-new 2016 7-Series looks, and understand how BMW shares design language among a select range of vehicles directly. So while we wait to see the all-new X7 in the flesh, the rendering below provides slightly more direction to that.

As far as this one editor knows, the segment in which the BMW 7 Series, Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class play never had one model go down the Touring path. The reasons behind this way of doing business are rather obvious and in your face, the Ďlack of a proper marketí being probably the most important.

However, one canít but wonder how such creations would look like, right? Probably inspired by the rumors about an M3 Touring, another car that seems impossible to be built, the guys from X-Tomi Design put together a rendering of a BMW 7 Series in Touring guise.

The quality of the rendering is quite high and its accuracy is more than impressive. All the cues are in the right place and, truth be told, if we hadnít seen this thing on his website, we mightíve thought it was the real deal.

But then again, as good as it looks, do you really think there would be a market for this car? Who would want a Touring 7 Series? People that usually spend in excess of 100k on a car are wealthy enough to have chauffeurs, let alone a second car to carry their luggage.

From a luxury/space point of view, this would probably be the best offering BMW would have on the table. We recently sat down in the new 7 Series and the rear seats get plenty of room, not to mention all the luxurious amenities and upscale materials used in there.

As a matter of fact, all of this is about to come true in the shape of the new X7. Thatís right, BMW said it over and over again that their new SUV will offer more space and luxury than any other car they previously offered.

As a matter of fact, we even saw the first mules for the upcoming SUV out testing and they were using the 7 Series as a basis. To top everything off, we know for a fact that both cars will be using the 35up platform that will house all future rear-wheel drive cars bigger than the 3 Series.

I don't mind wagons, but this one is too long. When they start getting too long they start to remind me of hearses.

Yeah that's one thing I noticed and as cool as it is to see it rendered here, wagons are on there way out. Even mercedes just chopped a wagon from its line up. Plus the X7 is on the way, filling in where a wagon could.

there might even be space for a crossover somewhere in BMW's line up from what I can make of it so far.

plus the crossover segment is growing, quite possibly capturing the eyes of some suits over at BMW.
