Introduction

What Car? says...

If you really want to ‘arrive’ at a venue, there aren’t many better ways than if the car you arrive in is bigger than the venue itself. And that’s exactly what many will find so appealing about the BMW X7. Luxury SUVs are all about status and theatre, desirability and opulence, and with BMW’s seven-seat flagship SUV sharing similar proportions to your average stately home, it has all of those qualities in abundance.

Taking on such luxury SUV rivals as the Mercedes GLS, Audi Q7 and Range Rover, the X7 also aims to tempt would-be buyers of the Land Rover Discovery and BMW X5 into pushing a little farther upmarket. 

Developed from the underpinnings of the 7 Series and X5, every X7 has four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox, with a range of petrol and diesel engines that caters for the economy-minded as well as the power-hungry. Few will be disappointed by the X7’s lavish interior, either, which takes the familiar X5 theme and polishes it up even further with luxury touches first seen in the BMW 8 Series.

But is there more to the X7 than just glitz and garnish? Can it really tempt buyers away from such established rivals? Read on to find out. Then, if you decide you’d like an X7, or any other new car for that matter, head to our New Car Buying section to see how much money we could save you without haggling.
