The BMW X7 is underpinned by the CLAR platform. The X 30d is powered by the same 3.0-litre, in-line six-cylinder, twin-turbo diesel engine which churns out 260 bhp and 620 Nm of peak torque. The 3.0-litre, in-line six-cylinder, twin-turbo petrol engine in the X7 X 40i belts out 335 bhp and 450 Nm of peak torque. Both motors are mated to an eight-speed steptronic gearbox as standard. It is a mammoth SUV which tips the scale at 2.3 tonnes and its humongous proportions also reflects inside the cabin.

Moreover, it also gets BMW's latest 12.3-inch digital instrument panel with in-built head-up display which debuted in the 8-Series coupe.
