What it could be?
The possibilities are acotándose if we become aware that BMW already has its luxury saloon, the BMW 7 Series, and already plans to be strengthened in another line, the SUV, with a large model that will hit dealerships in 2018 BMW X7. The German brand also enjoys a coupe of high-flying, its variant, a convertible, and even your sedan version of the coupe styling, with the range of BMW 6 Series.
