Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The BMW X7 is large, luxurious and filled with the latest technology. A range of powerful engines are offered and while it's not the cheapest to run, the X7 drives far better than you'd expect for a car of its considerable size and weight. A Volvo XC90 will be cheaper to own and the Land Rover Discovery is a better all-rounder, but it's hard to ignore the BMW's great blend of quality, luxury and high-tech equipment.

Pros
  • Powerful engines
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment
Cons
  • Cheap to run
  • Not the most efficient

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
BMW will offer the X7 with a choice of three six-cylinder engines. The entry-level 30d costs from £72,155 and uses the now familiar 261bhp 3.0-litre diesel unit. For an additional £2k buyers can select the 40i petrol, while just over £87,000 puts you behind the wheel of the flagship quad-turbo M50d. Despite being more than 5.1m long and 1.8m tall, it'll do 0-62mph in 6.1 seconds.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Impressive infotainment system
  • Excellent standard equipment
Cons
  • Lacklustre petrol engine

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
At £74,695, it's not cheap, so can it back that up with ability? Well, the cabin feels of a quality that fits the price, plus there's plenty of space. In the third row it feels as if there's at least as much legroom as in one of the X7's closest rivals, the Land Rover Discovery. All the seats slide and fold electrically, so there's no lumbering of levers and sliding of seats – just press and wait. The 30d powertrain is as good as ever in this biggest, heaviest SUV.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment tech
Cons
  • Expensive for what it is
  • Interior feels derivative

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Volvo is competitive when it comes to boot space. It has 262 litres available with all the seats up, which is more than in the Discovery (258 litres) but less than the X7 (326 litres) Fold the third row and it also has a bit more capacity than the BMW, at 967 litres. However, the Volvo has the least total boot space and, perhaps more importantly, the rearmost seats are pretty small.

Pros
  • Excellent off-road capability

Cons
  • Cheap to buy
  • Not as practical as rivals

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The BMW X7 M50i feels utterly indomitable on the road. It is stuffed with excessive luxury and power, and has an exquisite interior. That space and interior finish make it a compelling and more practical Range Rover alternative. But it's not as fun as you'd expect given the M engine and badging, and it's awkwardly big for many places in the UK.

The X7 comes as standard with seven seats. Row two can be moved forwards and back by up to 14.5cm. The seat backs also split 60/40 as standard. Row three also includes Isofix child-seat mounting points. With all three rows raised, the boot is smaller than a Golf's at 326 litres.

Reviewers from carwow have found the following***:
The BMW X7 is arguably more imposing than the upmarket SUVs it competes with, the Land Rover Discovery, Audi Q7 and Mercedes GLS. Inside, things are more restrained, but suitably high quality. You'll find plenty of piano black, leather and metal surfaces. Infotainment systems don't get better than BMW's iDrive, though.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
With a bump-soaking air suspension system, it's easy to dig the X7. It's still plenty great on the highway, too, floating along and providing a plush ride. The infotainment screen houses the latest version of BMW's iDrive system. The X7's interior is a little less vault-like than expected.

Pros
  • Fun to drive

Cons
  • Lane-keep assist is a little heavy
  • No street names

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 2020 BMW X7 M50i is positively brimming with the latest tech. Most of it comes by way of the 12-inch screen atop the dashboard. The interior is plenty comfortable for both drivers and passengers, no matter the length of the trip. If you're looking for a hulking three-row luxury SUV that has mega performance chops, your choices are limited.

-liter twin-turbo V8 churning out 456 hp and 579 lb-ft of torque. Zero to 60 mph takes 5.2 seconds, according to BMW. Handling is amazingly precise for such a big vehicle, although the X7 definitely feels more comfortable cruising along a highway than being hustled down a winding road.
