If the BMW X5 appealed but proved too small, the X7 should be an enticing prospect. As well as a huge interior and a huge boot, all models get a 3rd row of seats that can be folded away, making it a 7-seater. Those rear seats are also covered in the same plush leather trim as the other 5 chairs.
The X7 is an expensive luxury SUV. As such, fuel, servicing and taxation are all high figures. Even the diesel doesn’t quite reach 40mpg, while the sporty X7 M50i sees the official economy figure drop to around 22.6mpg.

The BMW X7 vs Competitors
The X7 is an excellent large family SUV. If you’re looking for practicality, the Mercedes-Benz GLS could be a competitor, and for a comparable vehicle with a bigger name, the Land Rover is another popular option.
All X7s come with BMW’s tried and tested xDrive all-wheel-drive system. So, yes, it is.
Strictly speaking, yes. The X7 comes with mild-hybrid tech (apart from the M50i), which boosts power and efficiency ever so slightly and allows certain systems to run while the engine is off. What it isn’t, is a full hybrid or plug-in hybrid where you can drive on electric power alone.
It hasn’t been out long enough for any meaningful assessment of its long-term reliability. With BMW’s reputation for engineering and quality, however, we expect it to be a solid car to lease.
There’s a pair of seats hidden in the rear of the X7 that can fold out to provide accommodation for 2 people. With the 5 regular seats, that makes for a car that can take 7 passengers.
The petrol models have 333hp, while the diesel models have slightly more at 340hp, which is enough for each version to get to 62mph in 6.3 or 6.1 seconds respectively. However, the M50i produces a massive 530hp, which drops that sprint time to 47 seconds.

If you’re looking for a full-size luxury SUV but want something other than a Range Rover or a Mercedes-Benz GLS, the X7 might offer an alternative choice. Leasing costs are broadly similar to the Range Rover and you’ll get more for your money than a GLS. On its own, the X7 is a luxurious, well equipped, practical and comfortable truck – and some models can shift as quickly as a sports car.
How Does Leasing A BMW X7 Work?
Deciding to lease a BMW means you’ll drive home a brand-new car while making fixed monthly payments for the duration of your leasing contract. Lease deals are typically taken for between 2 and 5 years, but you can choose the length of the deal to ensure it suits your needs.
You’ll also be able to choose your expected annual mileage and decide how much you’d like to pay towards the car at the start of your contract. Car maintenance and servicing aren’t often included as standard, but they can be included as an optional extra on your lease deal. Once your leasing contract ends, all you need to do is return the car. Providing your company is eligible, If you choose a BMW X7 business lease you can reclaim up to 100% of the VAT on your deal.
It doesn’t have the bespoke luxurious feel of the Range Rover or the distinctive layout and style of the GLS. Instead, the spacious X7 borrows much of what makes the cabins of other higher-end BMWs very nice places to be. The interior is covered in lovely materials, with nice stitching, crisp digital interfaces and buttons that have a satisfying ‘click’. It’s stylish, well made and very functional.
Like most large premium SUVs, the X7 is a capable car. The grip, the relative lack of body roll and the performance are all impressive. The X7 is a big car which rules the road. There’s an appealing feeling of solidity and security but it also extremely refined, with very little wind and engine noise.
The X7 is the X7. It’s a big, bulky, 7-seat luxury SUV. No coupe versions here… yet. There’s not even a full fat M-badged version, although the M50i model has a sporty body kit. It’s just the 1 body style and the choice of 2 petrol or 1 diesel engine.
