  • 2019 BMW X5 G05 Phytonic Blue M Sport xDrive50i 01 830x553

The width and height of the new BMW are 1,990mm and 1,805mm respectively, and it has a wheelbase that is 3,105mm long. The new head of the BMW X family, the X7 serves as the biggest SUV BMW has ever produced. Unlike the traditional looks of BMW, everything is massive and this seventh BMW SUV model inarguable parades the largest components amongst others, though we still expect it to inherit few components sitting on BMW's 2015 cluster architecture (CLA) platform.

And yes, that huge kidney-grille design has been carried over basically unscathed and is said by the Munich-based luxury carmaker to be the biggest ever for a BMW.

The prominent front end, with its exceptionally large BMW kidney grille, gives the vehicle an undeniable sense of presence. All seats are electrically adjustable, and upholstered in Vernasca leather, and even with all of them in place there's still 326 litres of luggage space behind - about the same as you get in a medium hatchback - swelling to as much as 2120 litres when you start folding seats. The BMW X7 enters the market as competition for the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLS Class, the Audi Q7 and some of the American three row SUV's. A three-panel panoramic sunroof, optional five-zone climate control system, heated and cooled cup holders, a 20-speaker sound system, dual-panel rear-seat entertainment system, et al, are also available. A huge opening panoramic glass sunroof is fitted to all models as standard, while buyers can opt for a "Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge" with LED lighting meant to be reminiscent of a starlit sky.

In the journey of three engines, all with three liters of engine displacement and six cylinders in a row bring him, first of all, the Only petrol engine in the X7 40i with 340 HP and 450 Nm, which comes in 6.1 seconds to 100 kph, 245 km/h is reached, and in the Mediterranean 8.7 liters consumed. The inline-six produces 335bhp while the larger V8 churns out 456bhp.

The headliner at the moment is the X7 xDrive50i powered by a V8 engine rated at 462bhp and 650Nm of torque.

Two design packages are available for the BMW X7. At higher speeds the auto can lower itself by 20mm to become more aerodynamic.

All units are married up an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and xDrive all-wheel drive while an M Sport differential is fitted as standard on the BMW X7 M50d and in conjunction with the optional Off-Road package. All the engines are paired to an 8-speed automatic gearbox that sends power to all the four wheels.

The driver is also able to adjust the body's ground clearance - for off-road driving, for example - by pushing a button in the cockpit to raise it in two stages up to 40mm above the standard setting. Both screens measure over 12 inches, and a head-up display will come standard in the xDrive50i (optional in the lower trim).

Adding the BMW X7 to its portfolio forms part of the BMW Group's ongoing model offensive in the luxury segment, which is itself a key element in the company's NUMBER ONE NEXT strategy.

Standard safety tech on the 2019 X7 includes LED headlights with automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitors, lane-departure warnings, rear cross-traffic alerts, and forward-collision warnings.
