New Delhi: BMW has launched the facelifted X7 in India with prices starting from Rs 1.22 crore for the xDrive40i petrol and going up to Rs 1.25 crore for the xDrive40d diesel version. Both versions get the M Sport package as standard.
As BMW’s only three-row luxury SUV, the X7 facelift now features a reprofiled front end, offers more power from updated engines and also has a redesigned cabin.
BMW is all set to offers the updated versions of the 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines for the X7 xDrive40i and xDrive40d respectively.
Because of the 48V mild-hybrid system, the petrol engine produces an additional 48 hp and 70 Nm at the pin, for a total output of 381 hp and 520 Nm. With this petrol engine, the luxury SUV can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds
Meanwhile, the diesel engine on the facelifted X7 xDrive40d with mild-hybrid technology now produces 340bhp and 700Nm, up 75bhp and 80Nm from the outgoing model. The diesel version of the SUV can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. BMW paired both engines with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Along with the xDrive all-wheel drive system, the facelifted X7 also gets adaptive air suspension and electronically controlled shock absorbers as standard.
Exterior, interior and features
The facelifted X7 now features a redesigned front end that includes a split-LED headlight setup and a cascade lighting element integrated into the grille. This new design philosophy can also be seen on the new i7 electric sedan and 7 Series. Other exterior highlights of the facelifted X7 include LED DRLs near the hood line, silver moldings on the front and rear bumpers, standard 20-inch alloy wheels and a chrome strip that connects the reprofiled rear LED lights.
BMW has also updated the X7’s interior, as it now features a redesigned instrument cluster with thin air vents and a new gear lever. Additionally, the X7 facelift also gets BMW’s latest curved infotainment screen previously seen on the iX, facelifted Gran Limousine 3 Series and i4, which includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch touchscreen with the latest iDrive 8 software.
In terms of features, the luxury SUV gets a 14-color light bar, four-zone automatic climate control, panoramic sunroof, head-up display, ventilated and heated front seats, voice assistant system and updated ADAS technology.
The BMW X7 facelift will go head-to-head with other three-row luxury SUVs in India such as the Mercedes Benz GLS (Rs 1.19 crore – Rs 1.21 crore), Audi Q7 (Rs 84.70 crore – Rs 90.63 crore), Volvo XC90 ( Rs 96.50 crore) and Land Rover Discovery (Rs 93.9 crore to Rs 1.32 crore).
