The BMW X7 is the first car to fuse the presence, exclusivity and spaciousness of a luxury model with the agile and versatile driving properties expected of a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV).
The latest and largest model in the BMW X line-up brings a fresh sensation of space to the luxury segment, thanks to the impressive open expanses and top-class design of its interior and its state-of-the-art equipment features. At the same time, the advanced powertrain and chassis technology of the X7 ensures it offers all the off-road prowess, excellent ride comfort and agile on-road handling for which SAVs are renowned.
Precise design radiates presence, luxury and modernity.
At 5,151 millimetres in length, 2,000 millimetres wide and 1,805 millimetres tall, and with a wheelbase of 3,105 millimetres, the BMW X7 displays harmonious proportions and establishes itself very clearly as the new head of the BMW X model family. The new design language, dominated by precise lines and expansive surfaces, intensifies the car’s authoritative aura. The prominent front end, with its exceptionally large BMW kidney grille, gives the car an undeniable sense of presence. The BMW X7 comes as standard with LED headlights, while the optional BMW Laserlight has a high-beam range of up to 600 metres and can be easily identified by the blue x-shaped elements inside the headlights. The car’s defining features when viewed from the side are its large windows, high ground clearance and long roofline. Horizontal lines, slim LED lights and the two-section split tailgate emphasise the contemporary styling of the rear end.
A generous sprinkling of chrome elements adds to the luxurious elegance of the BMW X7. The car is fitted as standard with 20-inch light-alloy wheels, while 21- and 22-inch variants can be selected from the options list.
The interior: three rows of seats and a luxurious ambience.
The roominess and versatility of the interior are underlined by the standard inclusion of three rows of seats (offering space for seven people in total) in the new BMW X7. The two passengers in the third row settle into full-size seats complete with armrests, cupholders and USB ports. The middle row can be composed of two individual comfort seats as an option. All seats are adjusted electrically at the push of a button. The boot capacity can be increased from 326 to a maximum of 2,120 litres, as required.
Carefully selected and meticulously crafted materials add to the feeling of luxury, as does the extensive standard specification. The BMW X7 comes as standard with Vernasca leather trim, four-zone automatic climate control, a three-section panoramic glass roof, and ambient lighting including the Welcome Light Carpet and Dynamic Interior Light. Among the highlights on the options list are five-zone automatic climate control, the Ambient Air package, the Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge, controls with glass applications, the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System and the Rear-seat entertainment Professional system. Meanwhile, the Design Pure Excellence equipment line, M Sport package and BMW Individual options allow customers to tailor the interior and exterior design to reflect their personal style.
Perfectly tuned chassis systems enhance comfort, agility and off-road performance
The BMW X7 boasts a wealth of chassis technology as standard, including Adaptive suspension with electronically controlled dampers, and air springs at both axles. The vehicle’s ground clearance can be varied by up to 80 millimetres to suit the situation at hand – by either pressing a button or using the BMW Display Key. A number of chassis systems are available as options to further enhance comfort, agility and off-road performance. Integral Active Steering and the Executive Drive Pro system with active roll stabilisation deliver even more nimble handling and greater poise. An Off-Road package is also available. This package includes an extra button for choosing between four driving modes – xSand, xGravel, xRocks and xSnow. These modes prepare the car for the surface in question by activating the ideal settings for ride height, the xDrive system, accelerator and transmission responses, and DSC inputs.
