Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 BMW X7 is the upper-crust seven-seat SUV that finally answers the question: What if I want to spend more for a BMW?

Pros
Beautiful interior
Great standard tech
Comfortable seats everywhere
Opulent top trims
No bad engine choices

Cons
Very expensive
Digital dash isn’t our favorite
Look-at-me grille
Many spend-up options

The 2020 BMW X7's #5 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Large SUVs category. Currently the BMW X7 has a score of 7.8 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 11 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
High-end cabin materials
Many standard tech and safety features
Muscular engine options
Comfortable ride

Cons
Steering feels too light

The most significant update to the 2020 X7 lineup is the new M50i model, which brings a more powerful version of BMW's twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 and other unique content. Otherwise the model-year changes are pretty minor. The top two trims feature more standard features such as soft-close doors, gesture controls, remote engine start, and more. In addition to some revised option packages, the X7 can now be equipped with five-zone climate control. With the introduction of the M50i, the regular 50i no longer offers the M Sport package.

Pros
Smooth and robust powertrains,
marvelously quiet cabin,
seats are serenely comfy.

Cons
Leans too much in corners,
some rivals are roomier inside,
painfully slow power rear seats.

For 2021, Audi introduces a more affordable base model that features the Premium designation. Available on both the regular and Sportback e-tron, it costs about $9000 less than the mid-level Premium Plus. It can also be equipped with the Convenience Plus package, which includes driver assists such as adaptive cruise control. Audi also improves the e-tron's available battery capacity and efficiency. The regular e-tron now has an estimated driving range of 222 miles—18 more than its predecessor.

Pros
Whisper-quiet operation,
luxurious state-of-the-art cabin,
tows up to 4000 pounds.

Cons
Other luxury EVs have more range,
not very engaging behind the wheel,
none of the flashiness exhibited by rivals

Pros
Doesn’t look like an electric car,
interior design,
efficiency modes

Cons
Doesn’t look like an electric car,
electric mirrors an acquired taste

For 2021 New entry-level Premium trim.Launch Edition model no longer available.

Pros
Smooth and decisive acceleration
Well-executed driver assistance systems
Healthy list of standard safety and luxury features

Cons
Complex touchscreen interface
EPA-estimated range is merely adequate compared to others
More expensive and less practical than the standard e-tron
