Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, BMW reshuffles the X7 lineup by dropping the 456-hp, V-8-powered xDrive50i—the 523-hp M50i continues—and adding the 612-hp Alpina XB7. The latter is the first SUV that the BMW tuning specialist has offered in the U.S. The xDrive40i's powertrain gets a 48-volt starter-generator which, surprisingly, worsens its EPA fuel-economy figures; both its city and highway ratings drop by 1 mpg.

PROS
Powertrains' deliciously smooth power,
interior as quiet as a library but much comfier,
Alpina XB7 is hilariously quick and athletic.

CONS
Excessive body roll around corners,
cabin and cargo spaces are smaller than expected,
power rear seats are S-L-O-W.
