The largest model in BMW’s X-series is finally here in the Philippines, and it has everything that we expected from it: luxury, power, and sheer size.
The BMW X7 truly is massive, stretching 5,151mm long, 2,000mm wide, and 1,805mm tall, with a 3,105mm wheelbase. But what may strike you the most when you first lay eyes on it is that huge grille. It’s easy to see why this particular feature has created such a stir among international automotive journalists, including the guys at Top Gear UK.
Behind all that chrome and under the hood, this SUV packs a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo in-line-six engine that is mated to an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission and generates up to 265hp and 620Nm of torque. You can expect the motor to propel this beast of a vehicle with ease.
The big Bimmer is poised to take on the likes of the Audi Q8, the Land Rover Discovery, and the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class in the local market. Only one variant is available in our country: the BMW X7 xDrive30d, priced at P9,290,000.
That price of entry is as hefty as this hulking SUV is. Expect more photos of the new BMW X7 from the launch event soon. In the meantime, tell us what you think about it. Is the X7 worth its asking price?
