The third product in order of size from the rejuvenated German brand is the BX7, which made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2015. In fact, this was the model that heralded the brand’s return. Two trim levels are offered — the BX7 base model and the BX7 TS. Features exclusive to the TS model include a more upscale interior, a different grille pattern composed of several small diamonds similar to the Borgward logo, larger wheels, a roof rack, and an overall sportier exterior design.
The 4,713mm-long SUV sports a wheelbase of 2,760mm and comes with a choice of 5-seater and 7-seater configurations, and three levels of leather upholstery, depending on trim. All models are well-equipped and come with power windows and mirrors, cruise control, dual-zone automatic a/c, 12.3-inch touchscreen, USB/AUX ports, smart keyless entry and start, and parking sensors
Higher models get Xenon auto headlights, LED daytime running lights, panoramic glass roof, power folding mirrors, power seats and 10-speaker stereo with navigation.
For safety, common to all trim levels are ABS, ESP, electronic diff lock, brake assist, fatigue detection, hill-start assist and tyre-pressure monitor, as well as front-side airbags and options such as curtain airbags, hill-descent control on AWD models and blind-spot monitoring.
Both models are powered by 224hp 2.0-litre inline-four turbocharged engine. Power is delivered to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission co-developed with BorgWarner. A 401hp plug-in hybrid version with an electric range of 50km will be added to the lineup for some markets.
