BMW Australia has announced local pricing and specifications for the BMW X7, which is the brand’s largest SUV to date and sits above the popular X5. 

Featuring what’s claimed to be seven adult-sized seats in a body that measures 229mm longer than the current X5 (5,151mm total), the X7 is a competitor to super large SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Lexus LX and Infiniti QX80

Measuring 2,000mm wide, 1,805mm wide, using a 3,105mm long wheelbase and a total boot capacity of 2,210-litres with all seats folded, the X7 is even larger than the GLS, which measures 5,120mm long. 

Two drivetrains, both diesel, will be available in Australia initially: the xDrive30d and M50d. Priced from $119,900 plus on-road costs, the entry X7 xDrive30d costs only $7,000 more than the equivalent X5. 

The X7 is priced similarly to its Mercedes rival, undercuts the Lexus’ starting point but sits above the Infiniti.
