A new M50d variant will be added to the line-up in October.
BMW India has launched its new flagship SUV, X7 in the country in two variants-xDrive40i and xDrive30d DPE Signature. Both the variants are priced at Rs 98.90 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India). The 30d variant is assembled locally, whereas the 40i is a completely built unit. The front has an upright stance featuring BMW’s quintessential kidney grille, flanked by LED headlamps. A chrome strip at the rear joins the LED tail-lamps.
Insides of the three-row 2019 BMW X7 SUV are reminiscent of the new BMW X5 save for the additional row. That said, the SUV is available in six and seven-seat layouts, the diesel version gets a six-seat, whereas the petrol model gets seven-seat configuration as standard. However, the petrol version also gets an option for a six-seat layout.
On the feature front, it packs an advanced infotainment system with a large 12.3-inch touchscreen unit supported by Apple CarPlay and gesture control. In addition to the above-mentioned tech, it also gets a digitalized instrument cluster, ambient lighting which also comes with the three-piece glass sunroof. A five-zone climate control, park assist, reclining function for all three rows and BMW’s Laserlight headlamps are also on offer.
The base 40i variant misses out on some prominent bits including the five-zone climate control system, instead, it packs a four-zone unit. Also, the base grade gets adaptive LED headlamps and rear entertainment package. Power on the X7 SUV is derived from a 3.0-litre, in-line, six-cylinder petrol engine tuned to churn out 335 bhp against 450 Nm torque. The diesel version uses a 3.0-litre twin-turbo oil burner with 394 bhp of power and a massive 760 Nm torque. An M50d variant, powered by the 3.0-litre in-line, six-cylinder unit will be added to the line-up later in October, this grade will sit at the top of the range.
