BMW has always been associated with luxury. It is one of the headliners. However, this new vehicle that have on offer maybe pushing it, but will it be worth it. That is what we will be dissecting here.
The BMW X7 is BMW’s offering for those who want more from their vehicle. They promised more space inside the vehicle, more tech, and most importantly more luxury especially if you consider its price tag. However, in spite how much it costs, the BMW X7 is part of BMW’s SUV lineup for the year making it a part of the company’s range-topping 7 Series saloon.
Regardless of the price, if it can back it up, then, it might not matter.
Being the largest BMW offering to date, the X7 cabin feels like its price. In addition, the legroom in the third row is similar to the X7’s competition which is the Land Rover Discovery. Also, just like the Disco, the X7’s seats do not require any lever or sliding of seats. Instead, it was designed to electronically fold itself. You just have to press the button, and wait, until it is finished sorting itself out.
Moreover, once the middle seat has folded itself, access inside becomes a lot easier.
The second row feels the same with the extra legroom added. You can recline the chairs so that you can stretch your legs. With the vastness of the vehicle, it is estimated to be able to hold as much as 326 liters of boot space. An accomplishment for a seven-seater SUV.
On the other hand, in spite the “more” concept already seen in the interior, expert believes that it is too reminiscent of lesser BMWs, which takes away its premise of the getting the most of your expensive purchase making it a cut below the Range Rover which is the one it is trying to compete with.
Lucky for the X7, it gets more plus points for its engine. It remains as powerful as ever with its 3.0 liter straight six turbodiesel which gives it a powerful torque, and that is what’s important. Additionally, the engine’s noise is also dampened in spite its strength.
Its gearbox has received praises as well. In fact, it is considered to be one of the best because it is always responsive, and the level of its refinement to perfectly fit the vehicle is off the charts. In fact, even on big wheels it remains classy and produces less noise than normal.
Shockingly enough, in spite its size, the X7 is fully capable of making bends and turns. Considering its weight, that is something to be proud about.
However, in spite all this, its comfort remains a priority, and that is why, it was never compromised during the design process of the vehicle.
More tech in the X7 meant live Cockpit Professional, digital dash, keyless operation, four zone climate control, cruise control, and all-around parking sensors. These are all added to ensure the driver’s safety at all times. Apple CarPlay, WiFi hotspot, and adaptive LEDs are also added.
For its price, you can clearly see that every penny is worth it. Regardless of its worthiness, whether or not people are going to buy it takes a long hard look in the eye, because it is expensive, but the features added can make it all worth it.
