The flagship Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) from BMW, the X7 is available in two variants – xDrive30d Design Pure Excellence Signature (locally produced) and the xDrive40i (CBU). The three-row SUV gets a new design language, host of luxury and off-road hardware.
The exceptionally large kidney grille lends it a family face. On the other hand, the BMW Laser Light technology with blue X-shaped elements give it an aggressive look. Meanwhile, the rear looks modern and elegant with slim LED lights and two-section split tailgate. The generous use of chrome elements further enhances its luxury appeal.
The long doors, large windows and elongated roofline give an airy cabin-feel. The vehicle has an elevated seat position for better all-round visibility. Additionally, the X7 offers abundant legroom, headroom and space for up to seven occupants. Rear-seat experience is enhanced with optional six-seat configuration including two captain-style comfort seats for the second row. Moreover, the vehicle gets automatic air conditioning with five-zone control. The large panoramic roof extends to the third row, thereby allowing dynamic light flow throughout the cabin.
