Why Lease A BMW X7?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
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, while a little snug, will happily take an adult and, as this is the seriously premium end of BMW’s range, they’re also covered in the same plush leather trim as the other 5 chairs.
Knowing what the X7 is and what it does, you’ll likely not be under any illusion that it’ll be in any way cheap to run. This is a big, heavy, thirsty and expensive luxury SUV. Fuel, servicing, taxation – they’re all high figures that aren’t for the faint-hearted. Even the diesel won’t get near 40mpg, while the sporty X7 M50i sees the official economy figure drop as low as 22.6mpg. There’s no plug-in hybrid model yet, either, which is a shame for company car drivers in particular, especially as the X5 plug-in hybrid sibling is a class leader.
The BMW X7 vs Competitors
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. A shame, as BMW’s hybrid systems are among the best in the business. We do, however, expect a hybrid will be available before too long.
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.
