The new BMW X7 is about 9 inches longer than the X6 and just three inches shorter than the standard wheelbase 7 Series. It is also the first SUV in the BMW line-up to get three rows of seats, making it the most practical offering yet from the company. Keeping up with the big theme, the new X7 gets the largest kidney grille yet on a BMW model, and boy is it big! The X7 will be competing with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Range Rover, Toyota Land Cruiser, Audi Q7 and the likes.
Serving as the latest iteration of the flagship SUV, the 2019 X7 builds upon the elegant and sleek look of BMW’s SUV lineup bringing in a massive kidney grille that complements the length and height of the vehicle. Matching the size of the massive SUV is a 335 HP and 330 lb-feet of torque single-turbo 3.0-liter inline-6 in the xDrive40i model or a 456 HP and 479 lb-ft of torque twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 in the xDrive50i iteration. The respective engines come with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drivetrain that can divert all power to the rear wheels. Looking at the interior, the X7 features standard three-row seating accompanied by sectional sunroof panels and four-zone climate control.
The X7 is a seven-seat SUV, with a full-size third row capable of seating two adults. As standard it features a middle bench that seats three people, straddled across a flat transmission tunnel. But in a move unique for the class, buyers can opt for a six-seat set-up instead; it features two large seats complete with armrests in the middle row.
