BMW shows its SUV flagship X7 For Next Year, just call it 2020 BMW X7. It is designed to accommodate up to seven people and a “new definition” of luxury. Plus: The biggest BMW kidney of all time.
A kidney enlargement is usually not a good sign. Kidney stones or pyelitis may be the cause. Sometimes one kidney also grows because the other does not work properly anymore. That’s not nice. At BMW, you do not have to be worried about a medical point of view. The enlargement of the trademark is planned.
The 2020 BMW X7, which will be launched in 2019, has reached its peak. The “biggest kidney in BMW history” pushes the X7 through the wind. Is so far the biggest SUV in BMW history so far. At 5.15 meters in length, he just barely towers over a Mercedes GLS. In height, he remains with a good 1.80 meters even five inches lower than the Mercedes SUV. But what we consider to be big is elsewhere (say: in the US) still expandable. A Cadillac Escalade or a Chevrolet Suburban pack on with the 5.70 meters in length loose half a meter in length.

The 2020 BMW X7 also offers as standard space for seven people. If you only want to travel six, you can order two single seats for the second row of seats. They can be adjusted and moved in the same way as the seats for driver and front passenger. The middle bank moves forward by up to 14.5 centimeters. In row three, two adults should be able to handle well on longer distances. Pretty much all seat adjusters work electrically and from all kinds of places.
Thanks to the sumptuous dimensions of the X7 brings in full seating still 326 liters of luggage in the trunk – after all, small car level. Tucked away from all the seats, the trunk volume in the BMW X7 increases up to 2,120 liters. Loading is by a two-piece, electrically operated tailgate. The loading sill can be lowered thanks to the standard air suspension.

As standard, a three-piece panoramic glass roof lets light into the interior. It can also be darkened from the third row by pressing a button. As an option, there is “Sky Lounge” LED light in the glass roof, which should remind of the starry sky in the dark.
Where others can accommodate a maximum of three climate zones, the BMW X7 already has four as standard. Optionally, there is a 5-zone automatic climate control, with operation from row three. Only for the driver and front passenger, there are cup holders that warm and cool. All inmates are allowed to enjoy up to eight fragrances and ambient light with six shades, well?

2020 BMW X7 Engine Specs
Dangers in the X7 initially exclusively with conventional burners. They tend to be quite large, but not everywhere of the same cubature. So offers BMW in Europe no V8 petrol engine, here is the 2020 BMW X7 xDrive40i the only gasoline engine for the time being. He draws 340 hp from six cylinders and 3.0 liters of displacement. In addition to the market launch two diesel.
The X7 xDrive30d is powered by a straight-six with 3.0 liters and 265 hp. The top model is the X7 M50d. Here is also a Reihensechser used, but BMW brings him with four turbochargers to 400 hp and a torque of 760 Newton meters. Tempo 100 he should reach in 5.4 seconds. A plug-in hybrid announces BMW yet, the IAA study of 2017, however, had such a powertrain. We expect that BMW complies with him in the production model.
All engines BMW combines with the well-known eight-speed automatic transmission from ZF. However, it has been revised. A new control electronics and a wider spread to make them more efficient. Especially in the upper gears, the speed level was lowered. In addition, the transmission should be able to switch both more comfortable and more dynamic depending on the selected mode. The power is always fully variable to all four wheels. The M50d has a limited slip differential on the rear axle as standard.

For assistance and infotainment, the X7 remains at the level of the recently introduced little brother BMW X5. With the “Intelligent Personal Assistant”, the X7 understands language, learns the habits of the driver and can be partially controlled by hand gestures.

With the complete package “Driving Assistant Professional”, the X7 drives partially autonomously. It brakes in a traffic jam to a standstill and drives back on its own within 30 seconds. Detected speed limits can be taken over by the driver. The X7 automatically changes lanes with the turn signal.

This helps the SUV in evading, warns of cross traffic and drives up to 50 meters alone backward. Theoretically, the assistance package also includes an emergency stop assistant, which can bring the car to a stop on the shoulder in an emergency. However, BMW does not offer the function in Europe.
