Get ready for the 2018 Borgward BX7 SUV, something completely new on the car market. For many decades, premium segment is pretty much reserved for the German trio, Audi, BMW, and Mercedes. Of course, there are many amazing luxury car makers around, but those three were probably most consistent for all these years. However, some older car lovers could find the Borgward name familiar.
This German brand was pretty famous, but it ended its life more than a half-century ago. Just like pretty much everything nowadays, the resurrection of this archaic brand comes thanks to the Chinese money. This brand is now under Chinese ownership and we definitely can’t find many German in its model. Except for the name, pretty much everything other is Chinese. However, this doesn’t mean that new 2018 BX7 SUV will not be a tough competitor. Moreover, there is a whole bunch of promising details.
2018 Borgward BX7 SUV design
The 2018 Borgward BX7 SUV is something completely new. As we already mentioned, this brand is now under Chinese ownership. This particular model has been developed in China, with the big help of the famous truck maker Foton. The new model comes with a classic crossover design. It is supposed to compete with German and all other compact crossovers in the premium segment.
The 2018 Borgward BX7 SUV is about to come pretty soon, but we already know those core design characteristics. However, it is still hard to make some predictions about mode’s capability to compete in one of the toughest segments in the car industry. So far, we can clearly see that the new model looks pretty attractive and spacious as well. The company promised a real premium car.
2018 Borgward BX7 SUV styling and interior design
On the first sight, we can conclude that the new 2018 Borgward BX7 SUV looks pretty good. Although Chinese rule this brand nowadays, the new crossover looks pretty mature. Moreover, its design philosophy is pure German. With its conventional lines and overall shape, it leaves a pretty neutral impression. There is no place for some styling experiments. Everything looks just fine. Moreover, the new 2018 Borgward BX7 SUV reminds on Audi’s crossovers in many ways. For example, you can see a familiar headlights shape.
On the inside, the first thing that we have noticed is plenty of space. This model comes with three rows of seats. Adults can travel pretty comfortably even in the last row. Don’t forget that this is still a compact crossover. At the end, we will see plenty of equipment inside. Among other advanced features, expect latest-generation touchscreen interface, smartphone integration and plenty of safety features.
2018 Borgward BX7 SUV engine
If we can judge on latest reports, 2018 Borgward BX7 SUV will be pretty amazing when it comes to the powertrain. Under the hood of the new crossover, we will find a pretty efficient 2.0-liter inline-four turbo gasoline engine. This unit has a max output of 221 horsepower and 221 pound-feet of torque. It comes in a pair with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which sends power to all wheels. This should be enough for some pretty good numbers in terms of speed and acceleration. Some reports suggest that a top speed will go around 130 miles per hour.
Also, we are expecting to see a hybrid version as well. This model will feature the same gasoline engine, in a combination with a potent electric motor and a 13.2-kWh battery. The company claims a 34-mile all-electric range, while a total output should go over 400 horses.
