BMW X7 M50d 2019 review: snapshot

The BMW xDrive30d gets 22-inch alloy wheels.

The powerhouse X7 M50d is the flagship of BMW’s full-size seven-seat SUV line-up, and is priced at $169,900, plus on-road costs.

Powered by a direct-injection, 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder quad turbo-diesel engine producing 294kW/760Nm, drive goes to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission, and the M50d is claimed to accelerate from 0-100km/h in 5.4sec.

Claimed fuel economy for the X7 M50d on the combined (European ECE - urban, extra-urban) cycle is 7.4L/100km, with 193g/km of CO2 entering the atmosphere in the process.

Standard equipment highlights for the M50d include four-zone climate control, leather trim (lots of it), auto adaptive laser headlights (with active high beam control), front and rear fog lights (LED front), soft-close doors, sat nav, 10-speaker audio (with Apple CarPlay, digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity, and gesture control), keyless entry and start, adaptive cruise control, alloy wheels (22-inch), the twin 12.3-inch display and control screens (instruments and media), a head-up display, a panoramic sunroof (with power blind), rain-sensing wipers, leather-trimmed multi-function sports steering wheel, ambient interior lighting, electrically-adjustable front and second-row seats (with memory for the driver), heated front seats, adaptive air suspension (auto self-level), ‘Park Assist Plus’ (parallel and perpendicular), Panoramic View Monitor (3D surround view), reversing camera (with rear parking distance control), and the ‘Comfort Access’ system (foot sweep under the bumper to open the rear door).

Also included is a heap of ‘M’ performance equipment including a more powerful engine (obviously), an M aero package, bigger brakes, a tricky differential, sports exhaust, and unique exterior design elements.
