BMW’s new flagship SUV is available with two engine options in the xDrive40i and xDrive30d and a total of four variants.

BMW has launched the all-new X7 SUV in India at Rs 98.90 lakh. The new flagship SUV sits above the X5 and comes with two engines to choose from.

BMW X7 price (ex-showroom, pan-India)
xDrive40iRs 98.90 lakh
xDrive30d DPE SignatureRs 98.90 lakh

The xDrive40i is powered by a 3.0-litre straight-six, turbo-petrol engine that puts out 340hp and 450Nm of torque while the xDrive30d gets a 3.0-litre straight-six turbo-diesel unit that produces 265hp and 620Nm of torque. Both these engine options come paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission and BMW’s xDrive four-wheel drive system with surface-specific modes.

In terms of design, the X7 sports an upright front end with slim LED headlights and BMW’s large kidney grille. At the rear, it gets wide LED tail-lights that are connected by a strip of chrome. All things considered, the SUV’s design masks its large dimensions well and its muscular stance provides it with a lot of presence.

On the inside, it is similar to the new BMW X5. However, what’s different is that the X7 comes with three rows of seating, in six- and seven-seater configurations. Features on offer include a large 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and gesture control, a digital instrument cluster, five-zone climate control, BMW's Laserlight headlamps, ambient lighting that is also present on the three-piece glass sunroof, park assist (autonomous parking) and a reclining function for all-three rows. The petrol 40i variant misses out on a few features though: it's climate control system is a four-zone unit, and its headlamps are adaptive LED units and the rear entertainment package. In addition, the diesel variant is a 6-seater as standard, while the petrol model is a seven-seater as standard but has the option to come with a six-seat configuration.

For our market, the 30d variants are locally assembled while the 40i be brought in via the CBU route. BMW will also launch the range-topping X7 M50d with a 400hp/760Nm, 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder, quad-turbocharged diesel engine, later in October this year. In terms of rivals, the X7 will compete with other large, luxurious SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz GLS and the Range Rover.
