Ever since the X7 was unveiled in 2018, BMW fanboys had already started looking up to its M-blessed version. Well, BMW didn't disappoint either. Within the first six months of the X7's release, the Bavarian manufacturer added a crazier version of the same SUV, badged as the BMW X7 M50i. It seems as if the folks at BMW just cannot let go of "sheer performance". As a result, the most "luxurious" SUV in BMW's lineup is now also the biggest M-car that the world has ever seen.

2020 BMW X7 M50i - A German Brute Force with unparalleled luxury

The M50i, as the name suggests, is the M-christened iteration of the standard BMW X7 that blends stupendous performance with the already luxurious interiors. What is even more surprising is, despite so much heft, it can sprint to triple-digit speeds quicker than many sedans out there. As the Bavarian manufacturer has made it clear that there are no plans for the X7M, the 2020 BMW X7 M50i retains its identity as the most powerful avatar of the X7.

As far as the M-badged vehicles are concerned, BMW never cuts short on features and creature comforts. Adhering to this ideology, the 2020 BMW X7 M50i, being the most expensive X7 ever, comes filled with bells and whistles up to the brim. While the M50i brings along exclusive equipment for performance-hungry purists, this is one SUV that strikes the perfect balance between nail-biting performance and equally jaw-dropping luxury. 

Priced at $99,600, the 2020 BMW X7 M50i is surely on the expensive side. However, once you have experienced the sheer excitement this SUV packs, you won't mind shelling money on it. But, life is never easy right? Well, so is this BMW X7's, as this new-comer needs to prove its mettle against some renowned Titans of the segment such as the Star-studded German - Mercedes-Benz GLS 580, and British Brute - Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR. Let's move ahead and put things into motion then, shall we?

2020 BMW X7 M50i Features

8.7/10

The 2020 BMW X7 M50i is a variant in itself for the X7 lineup. While the standard X7 is segregated in three different trims, the M50i stands apart from this crowd. Introduced in 2019, the M50i is nothing but an evil twin to the rest of the trims. It is rudely fast for its size and brings along a host of features as standard with its price tag.

Trims

MSRP (AWD)

Key Features

  M Sport exhaust system

Parking Assistant Plus automated parking sensors

Apart from the M50i badge, this trim focuses on more horsepower, better M-specific suspension tuning, and an M-Sport differential system. Although you won't miss any of them, BMW also provides an array of optional features that are bundled as packages, for people who want some exclusivity to their X7. That said, we need not mention that these packages further add on top of the MSRP of the M50i. The packages that are compatible with the BMW X7 M50i are:

Dynamic Handling Package

Driving Assistance Professional Package

Luxury Seating Package

$1200

What do we recommend?

Get the Driving Assistance Professional Package with the M50i for an additional $1700 that enhances the driving experience, especially in city conditions. Moreover, for an SUV of this hefty, you will definitely need driving-assist aids in traffic. A $1200 Luxury Seating Package should appeal to those who need their backs pampered. 

2020 BMW X7 M50i Engine and Performance

7.4/10

A familiar, 4.4-liter, Twin-Power Turbo, V8 motor powers the X7 M50i which has come straight out of the BMW M5's hood, backed by a sweet German roar. This 4.4L, V8 has been de-tuned as compared with the M5, enabling the 2020 BMW X7 M50i to make 523 HP of power and an impressive 553 lb-ft of torque. BMW fanboys can already rejoice as this motor is easily one of the most potent motors under the Bavarian's umbrella. With the peak torque kicking at a very early stage in the rev-band, the BMW X7 is pretty agile to get off its feet, making those overtaking maneuvers joyful.

2020 X7 M50i engine

Translating the engine to all four wheels is an 8-speed automatic transmission that behaves very well no matter how you treat it. Take the manual control and this slick-shifter mimics the M5 pretty well. Yes, it may not hold gears at high rev-points and the occasional forced up-shifts could even get on your nerves. Nevertheless, the X7 still remains to be one of the very few offerings in the SUV segment, that can get you close to a sedan-like performance, whilst maintaining the practicality quotient of a typical SUV.

Do not take the BMW X7 M50i to be as good as the hardcore M-versions. This is why, the M50i comes out a bit shy in front of the Range Rover Sport SVR, falling short of the performance figures by a considerable margin. Let's wait for the X7M and see how things turn out. That said, the flagship luxury SUV of the Three-Pointed Star manufacturer stays out of the conversation with the minimal figures of the lot. 

How quick is the BMW X7 M50i from 0-60 MPH?

“Elephants don’t run,” they say, but the Germans don't seem to get the phrase. The 2020 BMW X7 M50i runs really well, even with its mammoth presence, as 0-60 MPH sprint takes only 4.5 seconds while crossing the quarter-mile mark will take about 14.1 sec.

2020 BMW X7 M50i hits 0-60 mph in just 4.5 sec.

As soon as you let go of the brake pedal before launching, this behemoth quickly glances ahead making it almost unbelievable for a car this big. It is peppy on its toes and feels like a small car from behind the steering.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS 580 has always been more of a luxury car integrated with some fragments of performance, by segment standards ofcourse. However, since the GLS prioritizes creature comfort and luxury over outright performance, this notion brings along extra heft which pulls it behind in the event of a head-on race. The Range Rover Sport SVR, on the other hand, comes all locked and loaded to this comparison with the biggest motor under the hood. Thanks to its conservative weight and the added benefit of the supercharger, the Range Rover Sport remains to be the fastest contenders here in the lot.

How does the BMW X7 M50i handle around the corners?

Be it a coupe, sedan, or even the biggest of SUVs, BMW knows how to make the car dance on your fingertips competently. The X7 M50i, being their flagship performance SUV, serves as the epitome for this feat. The 4-corner air suspension on all four ends smoothens the ride competently while the all-wheel-drive keeps the power equally divided across the wheels. The adaptive damping mechanism cancels out the quake caused by the X7's big V8 under the hood and complements BMW’s sheer engineering.

2020 BMW X7 M50i front view

Gliding on good enough 22-inch wheels, the 2020 BMW X7 M50i is capable to perform off-road duties as well. If you want more of it, then BMW also offers an external off-road package that adds electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential, off-road driving modes, and a front skid plate to keep the bottom of the engine protected. Talking about driving modes, there is also a dedicated Sports mode for the purist in you. Just so you need to let some steam off while returning from dropping your kids to school.

How well does the X7 M50i stop from 60-0 MPH?

Blessed by the M-division, the X7 lives up to the expectations by offering a healthy bite on the brakes. There is a disappointing nose-dive at the front, but the M-spec brakes impart a sure-footed experience to the driver. However, due to the weight tipping over the 5600-pound mark, the X7 falls slightly short of braking performance as opposed to some hardcore performance SUVs like the Range Rover Sport SVR. Infact, considering this huge SUV is heavier than a Rolls Royce Phantom, the Bimmer surely knows how to put a smile on your face how-so-ever you treat it.

The rather large, 22-inch wheels discourage the wobbly nature of the front-end under hard braking, which is prominent in most other SUVs. This inspires the spirited driver in you to attack corners with ease - something that its immediate rival - the Mercedes Benz GLS 580 misses out on. In spite of being the largest SUV from the Bavarian, we have to give it to the folks at M-division in retaining the sporty characteristics of this luxury chariot on wheels.

The British marquee here is a hardcore performance-oriented avatar of the standard Range Rover Sport, hence, it comes to this competition all locked and loaded. As a result, it emerges as one of the most sure-footed SUVs in the segment. That said, the BMW X7 M50i's performance part has been improved, sure, but it isn't still as focussed as the Range Rover. Maybe the story might change once BMW lifts the covers off the BMW X7M. Until then, it is the Range Rover Sport that retains the cake for being the best performer here.

2020 BMW X7 M50i Fuel Economy

4.0/10

The 2020 BMW X7 M50i, along with stupendous performance traits, can manage to churn out 15 MPG in the city and 21 MPG on the highway. Its 21.9-gallon fuel tank isn't the highlight of the day either, requiring frequent stops to refill after every 400 miles or so. 

Clearly, the X7 M50i is not your go-to car when you are looking for an SUV you can go grocery shopping in. It’s a machine ready to flaunt its curves with both elegance and ruggedness on the freeway while on long drives. What you can look forward to is a good enough towing capacity which is a repercussion of a severely powerful engine behind the iconic kidney grille.

The 2020 BMW X7 M50i can run for 15 MPG of fuel in the city while it can go for 21 MPG while on the freeways. With a combined mileage of 17 miles per gallon, the BMW X7 clearly shows its disinterest in churning out the maximum distance per gallon of fuel. In that regard, the Mercedes Benz GLS 580 surely manages to impress us with its class-leading economy despite the heft it carries.

2020 BMW X7 M50i Interior

9.9/10

We can’t flaunt enough of the interiors of the 2020 BMW X7 M50i. Wide-open doors welcome you with all the glory while a digital gauge display and a 12.3-inch infotainment touch screen dominates the dashboard on the front. It has more than enough headroom to keep the tallest of its passengers off thin air while enough leg room makes those long drives comfortable and relaxed. Inheriting some of its character from the smaller BMW X5 and the 7-series sedan, the X7 M50i has the best of both worlds when it comes to interiors. 

2020 BMW X7 M50i cockpit area

You get a plethora of options regarding the interior fitments inside this Bavarian flagship crossover. The practical third-row further works in its favor as most of the offerings in this segment seem to just do a formality. We would like to define the 2020 M50i as a gliding lounge on the go. Built with sheer brilliance on the comfort front, the heated seats with 16-way adjustability, massage function and more than enough legroom, the M50i is a dream comfort vehicle.

Though we would still complain about the lack of thigh support at the last bench, it is still better than most other offerings here. The Range Rover Sport SVR, for instance, doesn't even give you an option to carry two additional people at the back, and this is where BMW X7 M50i takes an upper hand. However, comfort is Mercedes's kingdom, and the GLS 580 exhibits this trait pretty extravagantly here, overpowering the likes of most of the rivals.

What's there to entertain you in the BMW X7 M50i?

Standard features on the 2020 BMW X7 include Apple CarPlay, a 10-speaker audio system, integrated navigation, onboard Wi-Fi, and a wireless smartphone charging pad. Other than this, numerous features add to the premium appeal of the SUV such as heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a power-adjustable steering wheel, and 12-color interior ambient lighting. Sadly, Android users should plan on shifting to Apple devices if the heart is stuck on this car, as BMW still doesn't seem to like the idea of Android Auto in their offerings.

2020 BMW X7 M50i has 12.3 in. infotainment display

Long drives are longer if all you are doing is holding the steering wheel and pushing the pedal. Entertainment is a crucial aspect of cars in the present day and time. Adhering to this ideology, features such as rear audio controls and complimentary Wi-Fi make the 2020 X7 M50i a fun SUV to be in. Other infotainment features on the 2020 BMW X7 M50i include: 

  • SiriusXM AM/FM/HD/Satellite with seek-scan
  • Multi-source rear audio controls
  • Harman/Kardon 16-speaker system
  • Speed sensitive volume
  • Primary monitor touchscreen
  • WiFi Hotspot with complimentary 3-month or 3GB trial internet access
  • Steering-wheel mounted audio controls
  • Smart device integration
  • 9.2-inch rear touch screen

What are the BMW X7 M50i's key features inside?

BMW is fond of making the cars tech-friendly and so is the case with the 2020 BMW X7 M50i. Bearing the flag for the Bavarian manufacturer, this SUV comes loaded with all the bells and whistles to please its owner. The massive sunroof is one of the best in the business and ensures a roomy cabin like no other performance SUV does. It could be one of its USPs.

If we had to pick, we couldn't get our eyes off the beautifully crafted see-through gear knob. It is so pretty you might not want to end up with finger smudges on it. Loaded with some best-in-class features up to its gills, the BMW X7 M50i sets itself apart from the crowd with some stand-apart features such as:

  • Power driver and passenger articulating upper backrest
  • Sports steering wheel
  • Front center armrest
  • Leather/metal-look steering wheel
  • Dual-Pane Panoramic sunroof 
  • Fixed third-row power 50-50 split-bench seat
  • Passenger seatback side bolster support
  • Leather dashboard
  • Driver and passenger heated-cushions
  • Full Alcantara simulated suede headliner
  • Massaging driver and passenger lumbar support

How much cargo can the BMW X7 M50i store?

As we mentioned, functionality is amazing on the 2020 BMW X7 M50i. Flip the rear seats and you will have all the space you need to keep all those big camping bags or your golfing clubs for that matter. Flipping them won't be troublesome either considering all these seats are power-operated. With just a nudge on the button, the seats fold down automatically and neatly tuck themselves together, enabling a flat-bed-like setup.

2020 BMW X7 M50i has 12.8 cu.ft cargo area

With all seats functional, you have about 48.6 cubic feet of space at your disposal which is good enough for airport transfers and small getaways. The tailgate lifts high and wide, and the low-set boot lip means you don't have to lift the luggage much higher for loading/unloading. Once done, you can close the tail-gate with another dedicated button mounted on the gate itself.

With a cargo-carrying capacity of 90.4 cu-ft, the BMW X7 M50i stands tall in this department flaunting the best space in the segment. The Range Rover Sport SVR remains out of the question as it doesn't have a third row. Hence, there is enough cargo space here, but you can get much more space in the three-row SUVs if the third row has been folded down. Your call.

The BMW X7 M50i complements luxury and comfort by its sheer size. Weighing over 5660 lbs, the M50i comes standard with off-road capable ground clearance, competitive legroom and headroom with wide enough seats to comfortably settle 5 people in the rear seats and 2 in the front. Hands down, this is the best looking SUV BMW has produced in a while now. LED DRLs comforting the kidney grill on the front present a juicy mix of guts and glory, of luxury and ruggedness. Creases on the bonnet complement the dynamics while the chrome finish all over the front brings out the premium appeal of the vehicle.

Flow your fingers across the A-pillar and a prominent crease follows all the way through the B-pillar and the rear. Roof rails on the top are good enough to perform their duties. Prominent enough front and rear skid plates give it the go-anywhere look and feel. When admired from one arm distance, you can feel its length crossing over the executive in you while chrome tips on the exhaust and LED tail lamps adds the punch that you should expect out of a $90k SUV.

The BMW X7 M50i, despite its heavy dimensions, fails to offer a stance as bold as the Mercedes Benz GLS 580. The X7 flaunts a long and broad hood that certainly grabs eyes wherever you go, however, it compromises on the wheelbase front and takes away that extra space from inside the cabin. This is where the Mercedes-Benz GLS 580's 205.2 inches of wheelbase takes the cake away. The Range Rover Sport SVR, with just two rows of seating area, still challenges these bigger SUVs competently in terms of the exterior dimensions.

What are the exterior highlights of the BMW X7 M50i?

Face value is the charm value as they say. The 2020 BMW X7 M50i is a perfect marriage of rugged looks and subtle handling. With its delicate curves representing its adrenaline capabilities, the X7 M50i hosts exterior features such as:

  • Black grille
  • Metal-look rear bumper insert
  • Galvanized steel/aluminum/composite body material
  • Power remote right side-view door mirror with tilt down
  • Wheel well moldings
  • Class IV trailering with harness, hitch
  • Body-colored door handles
  • Body-colored front and rear bumpers
  • Roof rack

2020 BMW X7 M50i Safety

The BMW X7 M50i is nothing but based on a revised CLAR architecture that was first seen in the BMW X5. This is also the reason why the X7 handles like a small car and surely inspires a lot of confidence in the person behind the wheel. While the architecture is already a trusted one, BMW has also added automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert come as standard in the 2020 BMW X7 M50i. Apart from this, other features pertaining to the safety of the occupants in the X7 include:

  • Front and rear ventilated disc brakes
  • Remote activated perimeter/approach lights
  • Remote keyless entry
  • Side-impact bars
  • Electronic stability
