Bentley is charging ahead with the development of their upcoming crossover but it appears Rolls-Royce is content to watch from the sidelines.

In an interview with Autocar, BMW board member Peter Schwarzenbauer reiterated claims the company is seriously considering a crossover but admitted they're "not totally convinced" they should build one. The executive went on to say the model would have to look like a proper Rolls-Royce and the design proposals are getting closer to achieving that goal but they're not quite there yet.

While Rolls-Royce is still non-committal, previous reports have suggested a production model could be based on the BMW X7 and launched in late 2018.
