2021 BMW X7 Review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 BMW X7?

The X7 SUV is the largest vehicle in BMW’s lineup, and it can seat up to seven people in three rows. The xDrive40i version is powered by a 335-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine, while the M50i gets a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 523 hp. Both 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 2021 BMW X7?

Android Auto smartphone connectivity and a one-year trial of satellite radio are now standard, along with a heated steering wheel, front seats and armrests. The xDrive40i model adds 48-volt mild-hybrid technology, while a new Dark Shadow Edition is limited to approximately 75 units for the U.S. Based on the M50i, the Dark Shadow Edition features matte-gray paint, high-gloss black accents, 22-inch wheels, a full-leather interior, piano-black trim and special badging.  

What Features in the 2021 BMW X7 Are Most Important?

  • 12.3-inch digital instrument panel
  • 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Navigation with over-the-air map updates
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity
  • Forward collision warning with city collision mitigation
  • Low-speed hands-free driving system available
  • Second-row captain’s chairs available

Should I Buy the 2021 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.

Amazing Vehicle

I could not be more happy with this vehicle. It is amazingly quiet and comfortable, but still fun to drive. It has tons of space and the interior is impeccable. The technology is top-notch and intuitive. This one is the turbo I6 and is faster than it feels (so smooth and quiet), but lacks the “hold your breath” acceleration of the V8.

5.0

Luxurious

I love this vehicle! The cold water package, assisted driving, and executive package are great. The car drives very well for what I wanted and the 3rd row seating isn’t bad either. I had no issues getting in the back and I like how the 2nd row stops and adjust once it feels your knees. I’m not sure I’ll get tired of this car anytime soon.
