That’s a colossus: The new BMW X7 measures 5.15 meters, has three full rows of seats and a tremendous amount of power under the hood. The only question is, why you should still buy a 7-series sedan.

the new X5 would not be big and impressive enough pushes BMW in March 2019 for the first time after an X7. For prices from expected 80,000 euros, he then gives the 7 on stilts and wants to compete in the luxury league against models such as the Cadillac Escalade, the newly announced for spring Mercedes GLS and of course the Range Rover.

The Bayern set especially on even more pride and splendor: So the X7 is not only out of the glue and stretches towards the X5 by another 23 centimeters to 5.15 meters.

Inside, on the other hand, the BMW X7 is harder to stand out from the X5 – but the current edition is simply too elegant. Because there is plenty of varnish and leather, as well as the unusual glass trim in both models, in the end, it’s less the pomp that makes the difference than the space – and there’s plenty of that. Not for nothing, the wheelbase grows from 2.98 to 3.11 meters.

That’s enough in the second row for a comfortable bank or for an extra charge for two even more comfortable Captain Chairs and behind for two more seats, which unlike the X5 are not only an alibi, but actually can be used well even by adults, at least on short distances – even their own USB ports and their own climate zones are provided for this purpose. And like all other seats in the X7, the two folding chairs in row three are electrically moved.

Knapp is only the trunk, at least at full seating. Then fit behind the as in the X5 horizontally split flap only a meager 326 liters. But when row three disappears into the floor of the car, it’s already 750 liters, and when all the seats are flat, even 2120 liters.

The 7th among the SUV – this requirement has also driven the suspension developers. Like any BMW, the X7 also wants to look sporty and drive like that, even if it weighs 2.3 tons. And like every luxury liner, it should be extremely comfortable, especially if it is sold especially in America.

The Bavarians are doing this balancing act with a complex technology package: They incorporate a progressive steering and an electronically controlled limited slip differential, there is the mitlenkende rear axle and a roll stabilization. And like the X5, the X7 gets air suspension on both axles.

So the electronics can not only compensate for the level depending on the load, but actually vary the height of the body by up to eight centimeters and control spring travel and tolerance with it: Hard and short in sport mode, soft and long in a comfortable set-up.

Three engines, which have all three-liter displacement and six cylinders in series, bring him into motion: The only petrol engine is the X7 40i with 340 hp and 450 Nm, which reaches 100 km / h in 6.1 seconds, and reaches 245 km / h consumed on average 8.7 liters.

In our most common variant is probably the X7 30d, with 265 hp, 620 Nm, 7.0 seconds, 227 km / h and 6.5 liters in the list. And who is serious with my luxury and performance, the attacks on the M50d, which then comes to 400 hp and 760 nm, which weighs 2.3 tons in 5.4 seconds to 100, the only 250 km / h creates and with 7.0 liters is specified.

As potent and pretentious as the X7 may be, the Bavarians are not quite consistent with the end of the road. Inside, for the maximum comfort of the backbenchers missing the executive seats from the 7 Series sedan, and under the hood, BMW is apparently afraid of their own courage. For the thoroughly revised V8 in the X7 50i get with its 462 hp only the Americans, the Russians and the Chinese, and of the twelve-cylinder, which would be a real unique feature is not even the speech.

On the one hand, this is incomprehensible, because both the seats and the engines are finished in the kit and could upgrade the X7 again half a class. But on the other hand, maybe that’s not so stupid. Bayern secure the stock of another Dick ship, which is just debuting in the group. Because everything that could be missed on the X7, Rolls-Royce provides for the Cullinan with a matter of course – for four times the price.
