Is the 2019 BMW X7 a Good Used SUV?

Yes, the 2019 BMW X7 is a good used SUV. It debuted as an all-new vehicle for the 2019 model year, and it was BMW's first entry into the lucrative luxury large SUV segment. It boasts a long list of technology features, a luxurious cabin, and excellent seating accommodations.

The X7 is available with one of two potent engines. The standard powertrain delivers excellent fuel economy for the class, while the upgraded engine is incredibly muscular. This big vehicle delivers a posh ride, but its handling is uninspired.

Which Used BMW X7 Trim Is Right for Me?

The 2019 BMW X7 comes in two trims: xDrive40i and xDrive50i. Both models have all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The xDrive40i features a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine, and the xDrive50i has a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8. Most buyers should be fine with the engine power afforded by the base model.

A standard X7 comes with a healthy list of equipment that should satisfy most shoppers. In typical BMW fashion, there's also a bevy of packages and options. Below we've highlighted the most notable standard features in both trims, and you can check out other sections of the review for a more detailed look at available features.

  • BMW X7 xDrive40i: Standard features include synthetic leather upholstery, 16-way power-adjustable front sport seats, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with power tilt-and-telescoping functionality, a panoramic moonroof, proximity keyless entry, four-zone automatic climate control, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, an air suspension, a hands-free power liftgate, and a universal garage door opener. Also standard is the iDrive infotainment system, which includes a 12.3-inch touch screen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, six USB ports, HD Radio, satellite radio, wireless Apple CarPlay, navigation, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and wireless device charging. Standard driver assistance features include front and rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, adaptive headlights, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.
  • BMW X7 xDrive50i: The xDrive50i adds genuine leather upholstery, 20-way power-adjustable front seats, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound stereo, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, forward collision evasion assistant, lane control assist, emergency stop assist, a surround-view parking camera system, a head-up display, and automatic parking assist.

What Does BMW's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

The BMW Certified CPO program is available on vehicles with between 300 and 60,000 miles on the odometer. The program covers buyers for one year with unlimited mileage after the four-year/50,000-mile new-vehicle limited warranty has expired. This warranty can be renewed for a fee, but there is a maximum of five years of coverage. Each BMW must pass a road test and a 196-point inspection before earning CPO status. Additional benefits like towing and 24-hour roadside assistance may be available. Restrictions apply on transferring CPO coverage to subsequent owners. Read the BMW warranty page carefully.

BMW has one of the less-attractive CPO programs among luxury car manufacturers, according to our research. You’ll get better warranties from Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Jaguar.

2019 BMW X7 Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2019 BMW X7 or 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS?

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS is one of the most well-rounded luxury large SUVs. Both the Mercedes and the BMW have similarly powerful standard and available engines, but the GLS ups the ante with its livelier handling and its 577-horsepower AMG variant. However, that high-performance model also contributes to the Mercedes' much higher price ceiling. You'll probably find lower prices for a base GLS than for a base X7, but the BMW will come with more modern technology and a lot more standard features. Ultimately these are both great vehicles. For more fun behind the wheel, pick the GLS, but the X7 is probably a better value.

Which Is Better: 2019 BMW X7 or 2019 Land Rover Range Rover?

The 2019 Land Rover Range Rover is one of the best off-roaders in the class. It pairs that ability with deft on-road handling and an intriguing lineup of engines that include powerful V8s, a diesel, and a plug-in hybrid. Both the X7 and the Range Rover have excellent interior quality and pampering seats. The big difference is that the Rover only seats up to five people, while the X7 is available as a seven-seater. Prices for the Range Rover are much higher than for the X7, but if it fits your budget, it’s a great buy. However, if you need more cargo or passenger space, buy the BMW.

2019 X7 Performance

How Does the 2019 BMW X7 Drive?

The base BMW xDrive40i gets enough power from its inline-six-cylinder engine to handily move this big SUV along, even when it's loaded with people or cargo. Acceleration is decent, and there's almost no noticeable turbo lag. The twin-turbo V8 powering the X7 xDrive50i is a whole other beast. In addition to packing a punch, it produces a raunchy, cool exhaust note. Both engines are mated to a slick-shifting automatic transmission.

Because this is such a big SUV, handling is a little less exciting. The X7 prioritizes comfort over sportiness, with a standard air suspension that easily absorbs nearly everything an imperfect road can throw at it. This BMW feels composed through turns, though there's some obvious body roll. Additionally, there’s not much steering feedback, and some rivals are more engaging to drive.

The available Dynamic Handling package increases agility a bit via an electronic damping suspension and M Sport brakes. Also included in this package is rear-wheel steering, which aids maneuverability in tight spaces, as well as responsiveness and stability at high speeds.

Standard all-wheel drive gives the X7 good road grip in adverse driving conditions. This refined BMW isn't a trail-crawler, but models with an off-road package have skid plates, a locking differential, and selectable off-road driving modes for some light exploring off the beaten path.

  • Base engine: 335-horsepower turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder (xDrive40i)
  • Available engine: 456-horsepower twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 (xDrive50i)
  • Drivetrain: all-wheel drive
  • Transmission: eight-speed automatic
Does the 2019 BMW X7 Get Good Gas Mileage?

The 2019 X7 xDrive40i gets an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Those are great figures for a luxury large SUV. The X7 xDrive50i is more in line with the rest of the class, clocking in at 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

2019 BMW X7 Towing Capacity

The X7 can tow up to 7,500 pounds when properly equipped.

2019 X7 Interior

How Many People Does the 2019 X7 Seat?

The 2019 X7 seats up to seven people in three rows. A three-person second-row bench seat is standard. Available second-row captain’s chairs reduce seating capacity to six. The driver and front passenger enjoy excellent accommodations in sport seats that coddle and offer ample power adjustments. Upgraded front seats are even plusher, with a massaging function and a few extra adjustment options.

Wide rear doors make it easy to get in and out of the back, and second-row passengers should find sufficient head- and legroom. The middle-row seats have power-sliding capability up to around 6 inches, letting you divide legroom between the second and third rows just the way you want. The two third-row seats are spacious enough for adults on shorter journeys, but on longer trips, they're best left to smaller occupants.

Serving as BMW's flagship SUV, the X7 may just be the most opulent vehicle the company has ever made. The interior has a sleek and modern design, and it's chock-full of world-class materials. Highlights include real wood trim, a leather-covered dashboard, heated front-seat armrests, and a glass shifter knob.

Standard seating features:

  • Synthetic leather upholstery
  • 16-way power-adjustable and heated front sport seats
  • Leather-wrapped, power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel

Available seating features:

  • Genuine leather upholstery
  • Premium Merino leather
  • 20-way power-adjustable, multicontour, ventilated, and massaging front seats
  • Heated front-seat armrests
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Heated rear seats
  • Second-row captain's chairs
  • Soft-closing doors
  • Power rear-window sunshades
How Many Child Car Seats Fit in the 2019 BMW X7?

The 2019 X7 has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the second-row seats, as well as two complete sets for the third row. All of the anchors are easy to locate and use.

2019 BMW X7 Features

The X7 features BMW's user-friendly iDrive infotainment system. A brilliant 12.3-inch touch screen is within easy reach. You can also control the system with an ergonomic rotary knob on the center console. The interface responds quickly to your inputs, and there are plenty of clearly labeled buttons on the center stack for controlling other functions.

A neat parlor trick of the X7 lies in its available infotainment gesture controls. You can do things like adjust the volume by spinning your finger in the air in front of the screen. An available touch-screen key can activate climate settings when you're away from the car, and you can also use it to check fuel levels and see if the windows or moonroof are open.

  • Standard infotainment features: a 12.3-inch touch screen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, six USB ports, HD Radio, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, navigation, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and wireless device charging
  • Available infotainment features: infotainment gesture controls, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound stereo, a 20-speaker Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound system, and a second-row entertainment system
  • Additional standard features: a panoramic moonroof, proximity keyless entry, and four-zone automatic climate control
  • Other available features: five-zone automatic climate control, heated and cooled cup holders, remote start, a touch-screen electronic display key, a glass shift knob, and a panoramic LED roof

BMW X7 Cargo Space

The BMW X7 has 12.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third-row seats. That’s one of the lowest values among luxury large SUVs. With the last row folded, there's 48.6 cubic feet of space. Folding down the second row as well opens a maximum of 90.4 cubic feet of cargo space. Both figures are about average for the class.

The power-folding third row collapses with the push of a button, creating a flat load floor. The liftgate also opens in two pieces, with hands-free power access.
