The 2021 BMW X7 brings only minor trim revisions, introducing the all-new 612-hp Alpina B7 for the first time this year. The standard 2021 X7 lineup consists of just one trim - xDrive40i and comes at a starting MSRP of $74,900. There's also a $99,800 M50i trim in the lineup that brings a 4.4L V8 engine into the picture.

The xDrive50i trim has been dropped and the standard X7 offers only one engine option for 2021 - a 3.0L, TwinPower Turbo, Inline-6 motor making 335 HP of power. For better steering feedback and handling, BMW also offers the bigger 22-inch wheels as a $1300 option.

"The beauty of the big BMW is that every one has a cushy and hushed cabin, as well as a plethora of luxury amenities and driver-assistance tech." - CarAndDriver.com

The 2021 BMW X7 comes with AWD and an 8-speed automatic gearbox as standard, irrespective of the trim you pick, even in the Alpina B7. There's also a $4,350 M-Sport Package that brings sporty elements like 21" M-spec Bi-color orbit grey wheels, Black Exterior trims on the bumpers and side fenders.

The 2021 X7 comes standard with a suite of safety features like Frontal Collision Warning, Active Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Speed Limit Info. That said, the 2021 X7 is $20,000 more expensive than the 2021 Audi Q7 but is way cheaper than the  2021 Mercedes-Benz GLS-450, and the 2021 Lexus LX 570. Should you buy it?

2021 BMW X7 Buying Advice

There's not a lot to think about here considering that the BMW X7 xDrive40i already comes standard with the Luxury Package bearing various standard features such as the Live Cockpit Navigation system, Sport Spec seats, and Satin 21-inch wheels.

Here are the Maintenance Costs, Reliability Ratings, and Review of the 2021 BMW X7 >>>

2021 BMW X7 Engine and Performance

7.4/10

"The all-new X7 is either capable or ridiculously overqualified on the road." - Carbuzz.com

The 2021 BMW X7 is powered by a 3.0l, turbocharged, inline-6 engine making 335 horsepower at 331 lb-ft of torque - 1 lb-ft more than the 2020 model. This powerhouse is also assisted by a 48V mild-hybrid electric motor. The 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox discharges duties in the X7 and drives all four wheels (AWD) as standard.

2021 BMW X7 Engine

Thanks to the Launch Control System, the 5,397-lb 2021 BMW X7 xDrive40i manages a 0-60MPH sprint in an impressive 5.8 seconds, and further goes up to an electronically limited top speed of 130MPH. However, even the $57,200-2021 Audi Q7 55 TFSI achieves the 0-60 dash in the same time.

The BMW X7 sits on standard 21” wheels, the biggest in its segment. There’s also a $1,300 option to get the 22” inch wheels, along with M badged Sport Brakes. With the 22" wheels, the handling factor improves significantly but comprises the ride quality a bit.

2021 BMW X7 Fuel Economy

8.5/10

The 2021 BMW X7 xDrive40i offers a city/highway/combined MPG rating of 19/24/21. Technologies like Cylinder Deactivation and Brake energy regeneration (for the 48V hybrid motor) do help the cause, however, the 2021 X7's MPG numbers are certainly not conservative.

The 2021 X7 comes with a 21.5-gallon fuel tank enabling a combined range of 460 miles in the xDrive40i trim. Rivals like the Audi Q7 and Lexus LX570 offer much lower fuel economy than the Bavarian.

2021 BMW X7 Interior

9.9/10

"There's plenty of space for the family, though in interior measurements, the X7 doesn't match up to some competitors." - Edmunds.com

Irrespective of the consumer base, the X7’s crown comfort lies in the second row. The optional captain seats with 37.6 inches of legroom, not only is spacious but also the most luxurious. It gets power adjustments, massage options with heated and cooling settings, and its automatic climate zone - the BMW ‘s four-zone climate control.

2021 BMW X7 Seating

As far as the front row is concerned, the tech-ladden, wood, and chromed line, soft-touch, the dashboard have a very BMW-ish touch to it. The Advanced Vehicle and Key Memory remembers settings and can hold customization options for up to two people. Similar facilities extend to the third row too with comfort features like its own USB port for charging and Climate control.

There’s also ambient lighting at the back to keep away the claustrophobia if felt any and with a sizeable split-Panoramic sunroof, the interior of the BMW X7 feels airier too. That said, some of the noteworthy features of the 2021 BMW X7 are:

  • 20-way power Multi-contour front sport seats including standard 16-way power seat functions
  • Automatic Panoramic moonroof
  • Automatic 4-zone climate control
  • Power-adjustable steering column
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers with adjustable speed and automatic headlight control
  • Privacy glass

The 2021 BMW X7 comes with a large 12.3-inch rectangular shaped touchscreen that sits in the middle of the leather-wrapped dashboard can be controlled via voice and knobs on the center console.

2021 BMW X7 Infotainment System

BMW s state of the art 360-degree view parking camera and a heads-up display is an $800 option for the 2021 X7 xDrive40i. That said, some of the significant iDrive 7.0 infotainment features offered in the 2021 BMW X7 are:

  • Gesture control system

2021 BMW X7 Exterior

7.5/10

BMW awed the world with a very out-of-the-blue, big kidney grilled style. As much of a sight it was at first, the new design has aged quite well. It’s clever proportions not only amplify the exterior dimensions of the 2021 X7 but also gives its much required imposing stance.

2021 BMW X7 Three Quarter View

The narrow striped LED headlights leave a lot of space under the front fenders to the X7’s height. On the side too, by deciding to go with strong shoulder lines as opposed to the Merc’s round lines, the BMW X7 looks much more exquisite than its German counterparts. The large wheel arch around those standard 21” wheels with those new Y-Spokes and optional M- package Double Spokes design makes this a nice looking car also.

All in all, the 2021 BMW is a pretty big car, rather a wider car in its segment. It also has a higher ground clearance and with a curb weight that is neither as heavy as the Lexus LX 570 nor as light as the Audi Q7, the BMW X7 ends up having mid-weight. BMW further provides tons of features on the outside to make it a safe ride too.

2021 BMW X7 Safety

For a car that will end up with a six-figure price tag, the X7 is bound to feature some of the latest technologies. From rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors Adaptive headlights, and Drowsiness monitor, the X7 is one of the safest vehicles in the lot. There’s a Driving Assistance Package that features Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Detection alongside an abundance of features. The BMW has not been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute Highway Safety so as far as official ratings are concerned, nothing is out official yet.

Some of the noteworthy key features are:

  • Rollover sensor that triggers airbags
  • Front and rear Head Protection System
  • Park Distance Control, front, and rear
  • Daytime Pedestrian Protection
  • Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation
  • Rear Cross-Traffic AlertBMW Assist eCall

2021 BMW X7 Competition

2021 BMW X7 Vs 2020 Mercedes GLS- 450

Mercedes Benz has been setting the standards for luxury inexpensive cars for quite some time, BMW has tried to match up to its standards and ends up giving us a different interpretation. While, both Germans heavily use Alcantara leather in its cabin by, key features like a trackpad and knob control, infotainment screens end up differentiating the Mercedes from the BMW.

2020 Mercedes GLS- 450

While the Merc chooses to be more futuristic, BMW chooses the same too but without any limits. Small things like the Android and Apply display, the BMW showcases it on a full screen, the Merc on a reduced screen. The choice boils down to the exterior. If the new kidney grille appeals to your taste, then the Merc will not stand a chance.

2021 BMW X7 Vs Audi Q7

The Q7 was reigning in this segment for quite some time. However, it has bee quite some time that the Q7 has received an update. So as far as the relevance of design is concerned, the BMW X7 will appeal more than the Audi right now. However, Audi’s new Q8 does bring the competition close to the X7’s turf but since it isn’t a three-row SUV, it isn’t compatible.

2021 Audi Q7

2021 BMW X7 Vs Lexus LX 570

The Japanese Lexus has a bigger standard engine, taller than its competition but with a heavier curb weight and sluggish performance figures, it ends up looking quite bored in front of the X7.

2021 Lexus LX 570

That large grille sure does make the Lexus look good, but it fails that exude that executive aura that comes with a BMW. The X7 has a more imposing stance than the Lexus. Despite having an elaborate feature list, the interior quality just fails to live up to the German standards of the X7.

2021 BMW X7 Final Verdict

7.4/10

The X7 with its wide range of engine choices and an abundance of standard comfort features makes this a very delightful package. The three rows are equally spacious and none of them misses out on any luxurious offerings. Both the inline-6 and V8 are a delight in daily driving scenarios and the subtle yet imposing design will make head turns too.

The BMW X7 wears the seven badge and that's adjourned to vehicles that have always uplifted BMW ‘s standard and innovation in automobile luxury. The 2021 BMW X7 lives up to that above statement and has yet again managed to deliver a standard that will eventually trickle down and set the benchmark for all BMW models in the future.

The No brainer.

Pros - "Refined interior quality Long list of features Satisfying acceleration"

Cons - "Less passenger and cargo space than rivals Optional infotainment gesture controls are tricky"

High performance in luxuary It's capable and adaptable. It's great to be back in a BMW-designed car. The consistency of the finishes and the feel of the controls are also exceptional. It's the most comfortable SUV I've ever driven. The massaging seats are superior to those used in the Suburban, Lexus RX, Cadillac SRX, Volvo, and other luxury vehicles. Paul Blakeman was my dealer when I bought a new BMW 2021. Paul was fantastic... we had to change our plans for our purchase due to a tight deadline, and Paul worked very hard to find us an even better replacement car and contract.

Pros - Great headroom and legroom for every passenger, a surround sound speaker system, and sunroof big enough to make you feel like driving in space when you look up.

Cons - Infotainment feels like lagging or may be we haven't got to it's use yet properly

big sunroof, great seating space and rather comfortable interiors unlike anything foldable 3rd row seats, 12.3inch display for entertainment with apple and android auto use, surround sound speakers, cup holders, heated seats, great cabin styled with leather soft materials, big sunroof providing openness to passengers and a feel which is very calm and yet exciting, marked great, get it, i know it makes a big hole in budget but you need this car to feel better.

Worth every penny suv

Pros - Design, deck, cabin

Cons - I would say quality of interiors with this price could have been better to a good extent than provided

a good mileage for 7 seater with mpg 20 in city, powerful engine producing330hp and 8 speed automatic transmission leather seats, space for 7, advance controls for driver assist and passengers too, adjustable pilot seat, once you see the car you see a grille design so unique giving executive class appeal, a cabin big enough to feel like home imside, highly marked, just get it.
