A number of the new characteristics can already be seen on the front of the car, such as split headlights (the upper part of the headlights serves as the daytime running lights, and the lower part is an adaptive LED for the medium- and high-beams), as well as the recognizable, powerful, redesigned BMW kidneys that can be illuminated if desired.
New 23-inch aluminum wheels can be ordered, and narrow rear light units with background graphics are available for the first time. The chrome molding that connects the taillights further emphasizes the progressive and exclusive style.
There are three rows of seats in the new BMW X7, and the second row can be ordered with two luxury seats instead of three seats. With the new BMW Interface 8.0 infotainment system and the innovative BMW curved screen, the cabin is modern and progressive.
The central console has been redesigned, and there's a backlit decorative molding for the first time on a BMW X7. There's also a Sky Lounge panoramic glass roof (with LED lighting) and a Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround sound system in the BMW X7.
The driver and front passenger have the option of active seat ventilation and a massage, while the Comfort package includes heaters for the second and third rows, the armrests of the driver and front passenger, and the steering wheel, besides the first row.
In this model, nano filters are applied to the cabins, which can capture dust and pollen, and further reduce gases, allergens, and microbes. Three versions of the new BMW X7 are available: the BMW X7 xDrive 40i, the BMW X7 M60i xDrive and the BMW X7 xDrive 40d.
All are equipped with the MHEV system, which adds 9kW and 200Nm. In the BMW X7 M60i xDrive, there's a 4.4 liter V8 petrol engine. In addition to 390 kW/530 HP maximum torque of 750 Nm and impressive power development, the TwinPower Turbo technology and solutions from sporty M models are key modifications.
There's also a 48V MHEV with a 9kW motor. With the six-millionth inline engine of the latest generation, the BMW X7 xDrive40i now has 280 kW/380 hp and 540 Nm, which is 35 kW/47 hp more than the previous model. BMW's X7 xDrive40d model has the only diesel engine and produces 259 kW/352 HP and 720 Nm.
There's an eight-speed Steptronic Sport gearbox with gear shifters on the steering wheel and Sprint mode. XDrive four-wheel drive channels engine power on or off-road.
