The BMW’s premier SUV blends sophisticated good looks and considerable presence with aplomb – there’s no other vehicle that looks quite like it. This is in part due to a striking front end, which is dominated by an expansive grille and air inlets. In terms of practicality, the vehicle features a four-door body, of course – and it possesses a power-operated split-opening tailgate, which makes access to the boot as easy as can be.
Unlike virtually every other seven-seater on the market, this prodigious SUV provides room for two adults in its third row. Naturally, these rearmost seats are most ideally suited to be used by younger travellers, who will enjoy the levels of space they offer. Meanwhile, boot capacity ranges from 326 litres (seven seats in place) to 750 litres (third row folded) – to as much as 2,120 litres (all but front seats dropped).
This SUV’s baseline engine option is a 3.0-litre 265bhp diesel unit, which delivers 620Nm of torque, 0-60mph in approximately 6.8 seconds and a top speed of 141mph. This six-cylinder set-up is the most efficient choice too, returning as much as 43.5mpg. Meanwhile, a 4.4-litre 537bhp petrol engine offers optimal performance levels: a peak torque of 750Nm and 0-60mph in roughly 4.5 seconds. If you’re looking for something that strikes a good balance between power and efficiency, a 3.0-litre 394bhp unit is worth considering. This six-cylinder engine manages 760Nm of torque, 0-60mph in around 5.2 seconds and up to 40.4mpg.
Included among the X7’s entertainment features is DAB radio, which allows you to tune into more than 250 stations, each broadcasting in clear-cut sound quality. As well as AUX inputs and numerous USB inputs, the vehicle comes with enhanced Bluetooth, which enables music streaming, hands-free facility and wireless charging. Another standard inclusion is WiFi hotspot preparation, allowing you to stay connected wherever you travel. Also featured with all models is a 12.3-inch touchscreen, which offers access to a whole host of features. These include satellite navigation, voice control, BMW apps and much more.
