BMW has introduced the refreshed X7 with a new front end and divided world groups, improved interior and new technology, along with a range of new mild hybrid petrol and diesel engines.
The German company plans to differentiate the lines of its models more clearly in the future, and with the new X7 LED daytime running lights and indicators have been raised, and the main LED lights are set lower and equipped with matrix technology.
As before, customers can choose the M Sport style package, which visually mimics the new M60i xDrive and delivers 21-inch wheels, while 20-inch wheels are standard. The refreshed X7 is the first BMW to optionally get 23-inch wheels.
The cabin has been given a new curved instrument display, modeled on the new iX, which combines a 12.3-inch instrument panel and a 14.9-inch multimedia function screen with eighth-generation software.
The modified center console has new vents and buttons, as well as a light strip with X7 graphics. Even lower is the new gear selector and iDrive controller. Customers can choose between a six- or seven-seat configuration, and a variety of upholstery options are available.
The main innovations include the introduction of the latest three-liter in-line turbo petrol and diesel engines. Each engine is supported by a 48V starter-generator for the front wheels, with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission.
The xDrive40i variant now has 380HP and 540Nm, and the diesel xDrive40d 350HP and 720Nm of maximum torque. The top variant now is the M60i xDrive with N63 turbo 4.4 liter V8 petrol engine, also with mild hybrid support. Its rated power is still 530hp and 748Nm, but BMW notes that electrification brings another 12hp and 200Nm. Acceleration from 0-100km / h is 4.7 seconds, and top speed is electronically limited to 250km / h. Details about the X7 xDriv30i and X7 xDrive50d versions are not yet known.
