Expert Rating

BMW X7

(2019 - present)

    Summary


    The BMW X7 is a large SUV model that was unveiled in late 2018 before going on sale in the UK in early 2019. It is a new addition to the range that sits above the X5 in the BMW SUV family, and is a rival for luxury SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz GLS and Range Rover.

    The X7 has received consistently good scores from the UK motoring media in the first few months since it was launched, although many of these reviews took place at the European launch rather than in the UK. We will keep updating our results as more reviews on local roads are published.

    The BMW X7 has received praise for its driving dynamics, refinement and the quality of its engineering. However, it has been widely criticised for its heavy-handed styling and for feeling very little different to the significantly cheaper X5.

    As of May 2022, the BMW X7 has an Expert Rating of 71% based on 26 reviews.
