The BMW X7 comes with three rows of seats as standard. It is also the most luxurious of all top end SUVs. The 2023 BMW X7 hit the road last year with additional exceptional features, confirming its ability to deliver the latest in driving technology, road safety and infotainment features, following a breadth-taking midlife model facelift.
The X7 refreshed features includes the refinement of the seating configuration, including a revamped third-row seating, enhancing the seating comfort. Also included in the new configuration is an all-new dashboard and state-of-the-art infotainment system. The 2019 engines are replaced with even more powerful and high performing configurations, no doubt leading to lasting driver impressions. In a nutshell, the X7 elevates luxury and refinement at the top end of executive motoring.
In terms of aerodynamics and body style, BMW pushes the boundaries with the X7’s frontal appearance. The bold frontal redesign features headlights, fog lights, air intakes, and kidney grilles that have undergone well thought out and aesthetically fierce streamlining, resulting in a design that turns numerous heads on the roads. The result of the body work achieves a captivating new look as much as earning respect on the roads, from the daring looks of the X7. In a nutshell, the facelift sets the X7 years apart from the crowd, in addition to opening up heated conversations wherever the X7 is parked.
The performance and handling is enhanced by what is available in the form of power plants. Under the hood, the 2023 BMW X7 is available in two main variants: the X7 xDrive40i and the X7 M60. The xDrive40i is powered by a refined and efficient inline-six engine, now equipped with mild-hybrid technology, delivering a respectable 375 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. The performance is further enhanced with a retuned eight-speed automatic transmission, ensuring smooth gear shifts and excellent responsiveness.
For those seeking an even more exhilarating drive, the X7 M60 is the go-to option. With its powerful 4.4-liter V8 engine churning out an impressive 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, this variant provides an adrenaline-pumping experience. While the M60’s power is awe-inspiring, it’s recommended for those who truly crave the extra punch and come with M performance enhancements and a firmer suspension tune.
If you are a top notch CEO looking for a top luxury car capable of delivering a refined cabin ambience that also includes superior infotainment, look no further than the inside of the 2023 BMW X7. Inside, luxurious and technologically advanced features acknowledge your presence and this is confirmed by a completely refreshed front dashboard, showcasing a sleek and futuristic design that incorporates a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a massive 14.9-inch touchscreen infotainment display. BMW’s “Operating System 8” powers these displays, providing a seamless occupant experience, as the fingers move on the well-appointed and responsive touch controls.
The interior cabin of the 2023 X5 is additionally complemented with a faux-leather-wrapped dashboard, heated front seats, and four-zone climate control, ensuring both driver and passengers experience unmatched comfort in all weather conditions.
A retuned four-corner air suspension and adaptive dampers enhances the ride quality and road handling. These improvements ensure a smoother and more composure in the event of bumpy rides, minimizing road imperfections and keeping occupants comfortable and isolated from external disturbances and road surface nuances.
The inclusion of rear-wheel steering in the M60 variant further improves maneuverability and stability, making the X7 feel surprisingly nimble despite its size.
In terms of advanced technology and road safety features, the 2023 BMW X7 doesn’t feel short. The new infotainment system incorporates an array of advanced capabilities, including a trailer back-up assist and an expanded sensor system for the collision warning system. Additionally, drivers can “record” low-speed parking movements, allowing the X7 to autonomously repeat those maneuvers.
Standard equipment is generous, including keyless comfort access, a panoramic sunroof, and a wireless phone charger, among other features.
The 2023 BMW X7 sets a new standard for luxury and refinement in the top end SUV segment. Its bold new look, improved performance, state-of-the-art infotainment system, and advanced safety features make it a top contender for those seeking a distinctive and exhilarating driving experience. Whether you opt for the xDrive40i or the M60, the X7 is the machine for you-it is a masterpiece of automotive engineering and a true symbol of luxury and innovation.
