2016 Borgward BX7 Review, Specs, Release Date

There is a new player on the already crowded European car production market. The car producer we are talking about is not new, but we can’t call it known one either. We are talking about Borgward. This German car manufacturer has been relatively known back in the days, but since they stopped producing car their name was almost lost. Now, after more than 50 years they are coming back on the market. This company was brought back to life by one of the largest car producers in China, Beiqi Motor.

This car was recently showed at Frankfurt Motor Show and we were able to find out more about this BX7. This SUV will be the first Borgward car to hit the roads after 54 years and they have put up a lot of work in its design, both on the inside and on the outside. However, we have to notice that this car will at the end of the day be a Chinese car. Most of its parts will be built in China, it is resurrected by a Chinese company, and we have to say that this looks like an attempt to seize European market by producing so called European car with European name by Chinese producers. They do this because they cannot sell Chinese car due to lack of trust buyers have for them on this market.

2016 Borgward BX7 Exterior Design

This car has great design inside out, but what we are seeing is a lot of the parts that resemble on some other cars and we don’t know is that by mistake or they made this car to look like some other popular cars. Exterior of this car has sharp headlights and a 17 slat grille in between them that features companies’ emblem that looks like diamond. Exterior design looks elegant even though it reminds on Buick and BMW a bit, but we will forgive them for that. Interior part of this car is also elegant and it will come with 5, 6 or 7 seats. It will have a big 12.3 inch display placed in the center console that will be used to control infotainment system of the car. Some things such as cruise control or built in camera will be optional.
