The BMW is everything a big luxury SUV should be. Its huge interior is as practical as it is luxurious, and it’s comfortable and quiet on the road. What’s more, its style – not to mention its sheer scale – gives it an element of theatre and desirability that few rivals can match.get the best price
Even this entry-level X7 is positively loaded with kit; air suspension, four-zone climate control, heated front and rear seats and a 10-speaker sound system are all standard. We wouldn’t bother venturing any further up the range.
The xDrive30d uses a 261bhp six-cylinder diesel engine to deliver a pleasing blend of performance and fuel economy. It gets you up to motorway speeds in an effortless manner, so you never find yourself yearning for the extra muscle of a V8, and it’s civilised, too, proving quieter and smoother than the V6 diesel found in the Audi Q7. Our favourite of the X7's engines.
