BMW X7 (2022): the Bavarian behemoth goes through the restyling box

In the SUV category, while waiting for the formidable 750 hp XM, the one that acts as the flagship is the BMW X7. On our roads since 2019, the German juggernaut is getting a welcome little makeover todaybut which should still make the fans of the brand talk.

Indeed, after the huge grille, it will probably be the turn of the two-storey optics to arouse some comments.

An evolving physique

As you can see from the photos, it is obviously the front face that changes the most. The X7 receives a new face with lights split into two parts. The double grille is still there, it even lights up now when the car is unlocked thanks to the “Iconic Glow” function.

From the back, the changes are a little less noticeable. Only the light signature of the rear lights changes. As for the rims, customers will be entitled to wheels ranging from 20 to 23 inches. Two new colors have been added to the color chart: “Marina Bay”, available exclusively for the M60i version, and “Sparkling Cooper” grey.

With 5, 6 or 7 seats

The X7 retains its attributes in terms of habitability, with 5, 6 or 7 seats as required. In the 6-seater version, the seats in the second row are separated to offer even more comfort to the occupants.

The dashboard is also evolving, with the integration of the double slab inaugurated on the BMW iX and which is now becoming more widespread on all models stamped BMW. The X7 therefore benefits BMW Live Cockpit Plus with BMW operating system OS 8. We find a 12.3-inch screen for the instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch screen for the infotainment system.

In terms of technology, the X7 gets four-wheel steering, active anti-roll bars and the xOffroad package (available for both diesel and petrol six-cylinder) to allow the car to be more comfortable off the beaten track.

The engines of the restyled BMW X7

All engines now benefit a light hybridization of 48V. All versions are also equipped with all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Three models will be offered in France:

  • Diesel 40d six cylinder 3.0 liter 352 hp and 720 Nm
  • Petrol 40i six-cylinder 3.0 liters from 380 hp and 540 Nm
  • Gasoline M60i V8 4.4-liter bi-turbo 530 hp and 750 Nm

Pricing is not yet known, but should be on par with the current X7. The starting bet should therefore be around 100,000 euros. The first customers will be delivered from August 2022.
