Hot on the heels of the international reveal of the BMW X7, pricing has appeared on the BMW South Africa website. Here's how much the biggest X costs.
After seeing the BMW X7 iPerformance concept, it was only a matter of time before a production X7 was revealed. Built alongside the X3, X4, X5 and X6 at BMW's plan in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the BMW X7 is a lot bigger than you'd think. It boasts 7 seats and is 5 151 mm in length, 2 000 mm wide and 1 805 mm tall, and has a wheelbase of 3 105 mm. BMW claims that these are the largest kidney grilles ever.
The X7 also features large wheels. The standard units are of the 20-inch variety, while you can option 21- and 22-inch wheels. BMW has fitted the new X7 with a smart xDrive system which can send 100% power to the rear axle.
The price for the South African-spec BMW X7 was discovered on the BMW SA website and we can confirm that we're getting the two diesel models. The xDrive 30d has 195 kW and 620 Nm from a 3.0-litre inline 6 cylinder motor, while the M50d Performance pushes out 294 kW and 760 Nm from a quad-turbo 3.0-litre inline 6-cylinder. Both vehicles feature all-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 30d is said to consume 7.0 L/100 km and emit 192 g/km, while the M50d is said to use 7.3 L / 100 km, with CO2 emissions rated at 192 g/km.
