2020 BMW X7 Design & Size
First and foremost, let’s talk about design. In terms of exterior, how the X7 look is quite unique. It doesn’t look like any other large, full-size SUVs in the market. With its enormous kidney-grille, it appears BMW wants the customers to recognize who made the SUV.
From the front, the X7 looks massive, and yet, it looks perfectly straight from the side. The ground clearance is impressive. The SUV has a distinguished look from the rear as well, making it easily recognizable. Overall, it looks stylish, sporty, and modern.
In terms of interior, the X7 has a large interior. It can easily accommodate seven passengers with its three-row heated seating.
The interior is covered with Vernasca leather, with amenities like massage function for the front seats and armrests and cupholders for the rear seats. It has excellent cargo space, up to 2,120 liters with the second and third rows seating folded and 326 liters unfolded.
There are two versions of the 2020 BMW X7: the xDrive40i and xDrive50i. The xDrive40i is the base model. It is powered by a 3.0L, turbocharged straight-six engine. This engine is capable of delivering up to 335 horsepower with up to 330 lb-ft of torque.
On the other hand, the xDrive50i is the flagship model. Naturally, it comes with a better engine. The xDrive50i is powered by a 4.4L, twin-turbocharged V8 engine. This engine has an output of up to 456 horsepower with up to 479 lb-ft of torque.
Both xDrive40i and xDrive50i comes with an all-wheel-drive system. There is also a standard air system available to both models. This system enables the driver to choose their driving mode, be it sporty, comfortable or somewhere in the middle. Basically, this system makes the X7 a nimble SUV despite its large size.
The X7 comes with a lot of safety features. Better yet, some of these features are standard which means even the base model will have it. The standard safety features include Cruise Control and Pedestrian Warning, automated reversing, and interior camera, all of which make it a great SUV for commuting.

The starting price of the xDrive40i model is around $73,900, while the starting price of the flagship model, the xDrive50i, is around $92,600.
