BMW X7 was launched in India in July this year for an introductory price of Rs 98.90 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The Bavarian carmaker's flagship SUV has been completely sold out within three months of its launch. However, BMW is still accepting bookings for the X7 and has said that the deliveries will begin from January 2020.
Rudratej Singh, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), BMW Group India said, "The first-ever BMW X7 is a statement of the new, driven and highly successful India. When we launched the X7 here, we knew we have a best-in-class product that will clearly establish itself as a leader in the segment. It received phenomenal response from all over India and has been completely booked within three months of launch.”
“The overwhelming success of the X7 is also proof that there is always demand for the highest standards of quality and products that live up to these standards will be successful, regardless of the market situation. For us, X7 is only the beginning. BMW India has the freshest portfolio in the luxury car market and all our latest launches are generating tremendous demand," he added.
BMW X7 marked the automaker’s entry in the full-size luxury SUV segment. In the Indian market, BMW X7 was up against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLS, Audi Q7, Range Rover, Lexus LX, and more.
Visually, the new X7 will have a massive kidney grille, slim LED headlamps and muscular bumper with wheel arches. On the inside, it comes equipped with including new 12.3-inch dual screens for the instrument console and infotainment system.
BMW X7 is underpinned by the CLAR platform. The X 30d is powered by the same 3.0-litre, in-line six-cylinder, twin-turbo diesel engine which churns out 260 bhp and 620 Nm of peak torque. The 3.0-litre, in-line six-cylinder, twin-turbo petrol engine in the X7 X 40i belts out 335 bhp and 450 Nm of peak torque. Both motors are mated to an eight-speed steptronic gearbox as standard.
Importantly, premium features such as gesture control, wireless charging, a plethora of ambient lighting options, in-built perfume, four-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, powered and ventilated seats, massage seats, rear touchscreens, lane monitoring, and self-leveling adaptive suspension, among others are standard on both models.
