New BMW X7: A Range Rover beater?

Meet the heavily revised BMW X7!

It may only be a mid-life facelift, but the X7 has undergone a couple of big changes to help differentiate it from its predecessor! But what exactly has changed?

Well for starters, there are a number of updates to the exterior. Around the back, there’s a new tail light design and a new bumper, and because we’ve got our hands on the X7 M60i edition, it also comes with quad tailpipes! There are a number of updates at the front, too, with a new headlight design and bumper. And like with any new BMW, it also comes equipped with a massive grille!

On the inside, the X7 is covered in high-quality materials. This updated edition also comes with a new infotainment display and system, the same as found in the latest iX. There’s also an updated centre console design, and the M60i has a couple of M design features, including an M steering wheel and M colours on the seatbelts.

When it comes to engines, the entry-level car comes with either a 3-litre straight-six turbo petrol or diesel, which can deliver 352hp or 381hp respectively. However, it’s possible to go much bigger, with the range-topper being a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 that puts down 530hp!

The entry-level X7 starts from around £85,000, but if you want to choose the V8-powered M60i, you’ll need to pay at least £115,000! But is it worth it? You’ll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
