2020 BMW X7 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 BMW X7?

New for 2019, the three-row X7 SUV is the largest vehicle in BMW’s lineup and can seat up to seven people. It’s powered by a standard 335-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engine or a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 456 hp in 50i form and 523 hp in new M50i form. All engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is standard. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class and Land Rover Range Rover

What’s New on the 2020 BMW X7?

Besides more power, the new M50i trim level features 22-inch wheels, M Sport brakes, an M Sport differential, an adaptive M suspension, an M Sport steering wheel and exterior aerodynamic elements. 

What Features in the 2020 BMW X7 Are Most Important?

Standard features include 21-inch wheels, a digital instrument cluster, a 12.3-inch center touchscreen, navigation, Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, a panoramic moonroof, four-zone automatic climate control and a power liftgate. Standard active safety features include forward collision warning, city collision mitigation, lane departure warning, blind spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert. Options include a head-up display, gesture-based controls, night vision with pedestrian detection, heated and ventilated front seats, glass controls, a heated steering wheel, an in-cabin fragrance system, second-row captain’s chairs and a rear-seat entertainment system. 

Should I Buy the 2020 BMW X7?

The X7 will carry your family in luxurious style, and it offers impressive V-8 performance — for a price. We like the availability of second-row captain’s chairs, but, oddly, they don’t fold flat when you need more cargo space, which limits the SUV’s versatility.

Love this car!

This was our 1st BMW Suv purchase. It has 3 rows which accommodates our three kids very nicely. It’s roomy and very comfortable. The only thing that it has that I wish it didn’t, is the automatic start/stop button feature. The brown leather is beautiful! The crystal knobs are great quality. We bought the M sport so it has all the sporty exterior features. I would highly recommend this vehicle. We’re very happy!


Best Car I’ve Owned

Comfort and technology of this car is amazing!!! Rides like a luxury car, but preforms like a sports car!!! The fit and finish are spectacular!!! Lots of room for people and pets!


The best vehicle I have ever owned

Not too big, but roomy enough for a very tall and big person to feel very comfortable. I called it a Space Shuttle the first time I drove it! Beautiful and a very comfortable car with modern and classy looks. The 3l engine has plenty power - despite my concerns that it wont for such a big vehicle. Certainly, the best vehicle in class.
