Part of this growth reaches the longitudinal space of the rear seats, in the same way, that its trunk increases, reaching 525 liters.

BMW Z4. OCTOBER.
Developed jointly with Toyota, which will have its alter ego in the Supra, this new generation of the roadster with central engine and propulsion will arrive after the summer.

BMW SERIES 8. OCTOBER.
It will be one of BMW’s great launches of the year, an exclusive and luxurious coupe that is developing in parallel with the M8 and the M8 GTE, which had its baptism of fire in the 24 hours of Daytona in the month of January. The appearance of the production car will be very close to that of the Series 8 Concept shown, in 2017, in the elegance contest of Villa d’Este (Italy) and will be placed as a top-of-range saloon for the entire fleet of the Germans, so that will have the best materials available.
We already know that the BMW M8 Gran Coupe will be the first to arrive ” as the flagship of the brand “, in the words of Adrian van Hooydonk, vice president of design for the firm, adding a four-door body. What we do not have news is the engines that will mount this new BMW series, which will include a micro hybridization such as the BMW M5 that will allow it to exceed the 600 hp widely in the top range option.

BMW X7. DECEMBER.
And from flagship to flagship. In this case, we went from the sedans to the SUV and, with them, to the arrival of the new BMW X7, which also opens a new range and which aims to be the largest vehicle among the German SUVs. The translation of the luxury of the current series 7 to the SUV segment. One of the new BMW cars.
The countdown for its commercialization will end at the end of the year when the first units departed from the North American factory in Spartanburg reach the dealerships. At the last Frankfurt Motor Show, it became known as a concept, with its more than 5 meters long that gives shelter to three rows of seats and, according to the countries, six or seven occupants. Its platform will be CLAR, the same as the big saloons of the brand, which will seek to lighten its weight below the BMW X5.
As for its mechanics, there is nothing confirmed, but we assume that it will feature the popular six-cylinder in-line engines, both gasoline, and diesel, a plug-in hybrid option anticipated in the prototype on which it will be based and a powerful TwinTurbo V8. As you can imagine, the technologies and materials will be up to the best.
