The new 2019 BMW X7 reviews are out

Published on March 29 2019

The all-new BMW X7 offers its customers the ultimate in comfort, luxury and refinement. It's actually a 7 Series, but with three rows of seats and much more impressive off-road capabilities than expected from such a luxurious vehicle.

Base X7 xDrive40i SUVs (remember Alpha-Bits?) pockets a 3.0-liter inline-6 with a single turbocharger for net output of 335 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque, which it punches out at a low 1,500 rpm. It purrs somewhere off in the distance, behind a thick wall of acoustic glass, while it drops a 0-60 mph time of 5.8 seconds, according to BMW estimates and despite a curb weight of at least 5,370 pounds. The perception of speed isn’t nearly that quick since the X7 blankets the road with its mass and blankets a lot of its road noise with a muffled exhaust. Top speed’s capped at 130 mph.

High among the X7’s attributes is its air suspension system with automatic self-levelling. The suspension’s air supply is controlled individually for each wheel, enabling it to balance out an uneven load. It also works in tandem with the dynamic stability control system; the vehicle load registered by its sensors can be factored into braking calculations. 

Yet, despite its full-bodied avoirdupois, the crossover boasts decent acceleration when pushed, zero to 100 km/h, according to BMW, taking just 6.1 seconds for the 40i and 5.4 seconds for the 50i.

Fully contented and with a clean and functional dash layout, both the 40i and 50i versions tested were fitted with the optional captain’s chairs. In many cases, trying to cram three rows of seats into anything smaller than a Chevrolet Suburban often ends up compromising legroom for the middle-row passengers. Not so in the X7: Even with the driver’s seat set back for my six-foot-two frame, I could easily get into the second row and not have my knees touch the front seat back. – Driving.ca

BMW has come a long way since it begrudgingly added the world's saddest excuse for cupholders to its American cars. The X7 has real cupholders up front, and even better, they're heated and cooled—the lukewarm bottle of water we pulled from the door pocket was noticeably colder when we opened it about 20 minutes later – Motor Trend
