BMW X7 (2019–)

Model History

October 2018

BMW X7 announced

In terms of design, the BMW X7 has a three-dimensional version of the bar that turns upwards at its outer edges. At the front, Adaptive LED headlights and front foglamps are standard, while BMW Laserlights are optional. This system employs a spotlight with Selective Beam delivering a non-dazzling high beam range of 600 metres.

It is 5151mm long, 2000mm wide and 1805mm tall, with a wheelbase of 3105mm.

The BMW X7 has three rows of seats that offer space for up to seven adults. The third row has two full-size seats with space between them – a first for a 4x4. A standard-fit glass roof adds to the spacious feel while cupholders and armrests integrated into the side panel trim offer additional comfort.

The second row includes three seats in a conventional rear-seat bench configuration although customers can specify two individual seats that offer the same functionality and adjustment range as the front seats. These optional seats feature integrated armrests, comfort cushions and cup-holders extended from the front centre console.

In both the standard and optional configuration, the second-row seats can slide longitudinally through 14.5mm (in seven-seater form). Adjustment of the fore/aft position – like all other seat positions and backrest angles – is electric, and the backrests in the second and third rows fold down electrically.

The seats in the second row can also be tilted forward to make getting in and out as easy as possible for third-row passengers. The second-row seats can be returned to their upright position at the touch of a button, at which point child seats can be fixed in place using the ISOFIX attachments.

Boot capacity is 326 litres and increases to a maximum 2120 litres when the backrests of the seats in the second and third rows are folded down. The standard air suspension allows the car to be lowered (at the touch of a button in the boot, via the display key or rocker switch within the centre console) to make loading easier.

The new BMW X7 features a two-section split tailgate, both elements of which have electric opening and closing as standard. If the optional Comfort Access is specified, the tailgate opens and closes automatically and hands-free.

Four-zone automatic climate control is standard, but customers can opt for a five-zone automatic climate control system with separate control panel and additional air vents for the third row of seats.

The engine line-up includes a newly developed a six-cylinder in-line petrol unit for the BMW X7 xDrive40i and a pair of six-cylinder in-line diesels to power the BMW X7 xDrive30d and BMW X7 M50d M Performance models. Petrol and diesel units feature turbochargers and are aligned to eight-speed Steptronic transmission, which has a wider gear ratio spread and new control electronics. This reduces engine speeds, particularly in higher gears, which helps to increase overall efficiency.
