2019 BMW X7 Interior Review


Interior: 7.6

The 2019 BMW X7 has an opulent interior with a high-end design. All of the seats are comfortable and provide a good amount of space, and cargo dimensions are about average for the class. The X7 has a long list of standard and optional features that are modern and intuitive.

  • "The X7's interior is some of BMW's best work yet. The large windshield and sensibly sized pillars provide an expansive forward view. … Even the plastics feel a notch above the competition's." -- Car and Driver
  • "The interior itself is standard BMW, though we mean that as a compliment. Materials throughout the cabin are excellent, with soft, handsome leather, wood and metal covering nearly every surface." -- Autoblog
  • "Once inside, this SUV lives up to its flagship status. Like the 7 Series sedan, it has a similar horizontal design, lavish use of fine leather and pleasing stitching." -- Edmunds


The BMW X7 seats seven people in three rows. The front seats are extremely comfortable and have a long list of luxurious amenities and upgrades. Second-row space is ample, and there's generally enough third-row room for adults.

Synthetic leather upholstery, 16-way power-adjustable and heated front sport seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are standard. Optional features include genuine leather upholstery, premium Merino leather, heated front-seat armrests, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, second-row captain's chairs, and a glass shift knob. You can also opt for 20-way power-adjustable, multi-contour, ventilated, and massaging front seats.

  • "What won’t fade, at least over the course of about eight hours and over 400 miles, is the superbly comfortable nature of the X7’s seats. Almost infinitely adjustable, with heating, cooling and of course massage functionality, the xDrive50i’s front thrones cradle their occupants at the perfect confluence of 'soft' and 'supportive.'" -- Jalopnik
  • "Overall space inside this big BMW SUV is excellent; there’s enough headroom and legroom in both of the X7’s rear rows for 6-foot-tall passengers to sit comfortably. Moreover, the second-row seats tip forward to aid ingress and egress, further aided by rear side doors that have been lengthened to improve interior access." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Space in all three rows is generous. An average adult can sit comfortably in the third row, though like most three-row SUVs with limited rear headroom, we wouldn't recommend it for taller passengers or an extended length of time." -- Autoblog

  • "The 12.3-inch infotainment screen renders crisp images and is easy to operate via a finger on the touchscreen or with the familiar iDrive control knob. … Fortunately, physical buttons still exist to manage most HVAC controls. " -- Car and Driver
  • "The first thing most folks will notice is the pair of 12.3-inch screens on the dashboard. The gauge cluster screen is configurable, and it lays out information in a straightforward way … The infotainment screen houses the latest version of BMW's iDrive system. Touch capability is a welcome addition, offering an extra degree of manipulation above the standard rotary controller." -- CNET
  • "Controls are well placed, and there are hard buttons for just about every commonly-used feature. It's also a step up from both Range Rover and the Mercedes-Benz GLS, though the latter is due for an update that should improve things immensely. Right now, the X7 is the best thing in the class." -- Autoblog


The BMW X7 has 48.6 cubic feet of cargo space with its third row of seats folded down, and 90.4 cubic feet with both the second and third rows folded. Those values are about average for the class. A power liftgate comes standard.  

  • "With the third row up, space behind the rear seat is limited, only fitting our carry-on luggage when placed upright, though there is a sizable bin underneath the load floor. Still, the cargo area is enough for a few soft bags or a load of groceries." -- Autoblog
  • "As for cargo space, I can't fit two backpacks and two carry-on-size roller bags in back without folding the third-row seats down, so don't expect to haul a family of seven's worth of junk across the Great Plains." -- CNET
  • "Behind the third row is enough space for two rolling carry-on suitcases but not much else. The seatbacks slowly fold flat at the touch of a button to provide 48.6 cubic feet of storage. With the second row stowed, the maximum capacity tops out at 90.4 cubic feet, which is generous among rivals." -- Edmunds
