2023 BMW X7 pops up with their new design language
Latest BMW designs have been quite polarising. The current 7-Series, X7, M3 and M4 have had many talking points about their bold looks, especially, the large grill. But BMW is not done with it yet. Here is the 2023 BMW X7, featuring their new design language.
The 2023 model of Bavaria’s biggest SUV comes with a few changes in this facelift. Yet, the face is what we all notice. The front fascia of the new X7 keeps the large front grill and split headlight design that has also seeped into the other full-size offerings from their stable, the 7-Series and i7.
The top half of the headlamp cluster is the LED daytime running lights, while the bottom half houses the headlamp. Though a bit polarizing, the new design gives the X7 a distinct character. The grill gets its routine chrome treatment on the xDrive40i models. In the sportier X7 M60i, the chrome makes way for a gloss black finish. To spice things up more, there is a cascading lighting element inside the grill as well.
You can now choose from a set of 21-, 22- or even 23-inch wheel designs for this big SUV. There are 14 new colours added to the palette. To top it all off, you can paste the optional BMW M 50 years emblem instead of the regular logo.
Like every luxury vehicle, the interior of the 2023 BMW X7 is where the business sits. The 2023 X7 gets a big tech update in the form of BMW’s new iDrive 8 infotainment system. This is run via a combination of a 12.3-inch driver information system and a 14.9-inch infotainment, system, both hidden behind a beautiful curve display. The front seats now get heating as standard while massaging and ventilation systems still remain options.
The power units propelling the X7 include a 3.0-litre inline-six and a bi-turbo 4.4-litre V8. The former comes with the xDrive40i trim, and makes 375 hp, 40 hp more than before. Stepping up, the biturbo V8 makes 523 hp. The 0-100 kph time is an impressive 4.7 seconds. If you need even more heat, you can opt for the Alpina XB7, which massages 630 hp out of the same engine, slashing the acceleration time to 100 kph down to just over 4.2 seconds.
The 2023 BMW X7 is certainly Middle-East bound given our affinity for large, luxury SUVs. It will lock horns with the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Audi Q8, and the Range Rover when it arrives.
