The 2018 Borgward BX7 SUV will try to return the name to the global automobile scene. The SUV, with a base price of around 26,000 euros, is going to be cheaper than the German competition.

But, thanks to the front grille with vertical bars and a large emblem, the company has symbolically managed to preserve the memory of former models of this manufacturer.
