Overview of the BMW X7

Learn about the BMW X7

Summary

The BMW X7 40i and BMW X7 50i were introduced in 2019. Both offer superior driving capabilities, luxurious, comfortable interiors and second to none safety features. Both impressively tech-equipped and power-packed, they also offer plenty of comfortable seating and cargo space for carrying your gear. While the BMW X7 50i has a more powerful engine and more standard options than the BMW X7 40i, the latter can be upgraded to deliver the same level of luxury found in the BMW X7 50i.

Safety

The BMW X7 boasts a long list of safety features. In addition to standard safety features, such as airbags and back-up cameras, these upscale SUVs offer tons of driver-assist safety systems, including:

  • Automated emergency braking system – which warns the driver of an upcoming frontal collision and applies the brakes if the driver doesn't respond in time
  • Active park assist system – which expertly steers the car into a parallel parking spot
  • Lane-keeping assist – which warns the driver if the car is drifting into a neighbouring lane

Interior

The quiet cabin of both BMW X7 models offers three rows of comfortable heated seating. All can be operated automatically with the touch of a button and are upholstered in upscale leather. Captain's chairs or split bench seating can be chosen for rows one and two, while the third row is a split bench. Front-row seats offer four-way lumbar support. 

The interior also offers automatic windows in rows one and two, a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone front with rear temperature controls and a power-adjustable steering wheel.

Technology

Both the BMW X7 40i and the BMW X7 50i are packed with tech. They come with rear and side view cameras, sonar and radar, a superior navigational system and an infotainment system beyond compare, which features the following:

  • Infotainment touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Onboard WiFi
  • Wireless smartphone charging pad
  • 10-speaker audio system
  • Compatible CD
  • Speed Compensated Volume Control
  • Multiple USB ports
  • Auxiliary Audio Input Jack
  • Steering Wheel Controls and Voice Activation

Space

Reviewers report that the cabin space of both models of the BMW X7 is roomy with plenty of leg and headroom, with the exception, perhaps, of the third row. While it's roomy enough for younger children, taller teens and adults might find it a bit cramped. 

If the vehicle is carrying seven passengers, trunk or cargo space is minimal. However, with the second and third-row seats folded down, the cargo capacity increases dramatically, so you won't run into any issues transporting large items.

Comfort

The 2019 BMW X7 40i and 50i have been ranked higher than its competitors, like the Land Rover Range Rover and Lincoln Navigator. The two BMW X7 options offer the very best driving capabilities in their class, with a ride quality that is described as impressive. The luxurious and extremely comfortable interior only adds to the quality of the ride. 

These vehicles handle off-road well, and several driving modes are offered to suit the terrain: Comfort, Sport, Adaptive and Eco Pro.
