The BMW X7 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.

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.

If you’re not a fan of diesel power, you can opt for the six-cylinder petrol xDrive40i. Its engine is serenely quiet when you want it to be, and nice and snarly when you’re pressing on. What’s more, it’s impressively responsive, even at the very bottom of the rev range, and once you hit 2000rpm and the turbocharger really kicks in, there’s no stopping this 335bhp unit. It is, though, a little slower than the Audi Q7 55 TFSI, but not by much.
