After its launch in 2018, the X7 is still BMW's biggest and most capable three-row SUV in the market. Unlike the smaller X5, the X7 comes with three rows of seating as standard along with a slew of luxuries and creature comforts befitting of the brand. The X7 is also deceptively quick for an SUV, especially in the M50i trim with a massive twin-turbocharged V-8 under the hood, while the base xDrive40i model gets a modest six-cylinder unit. All models also get all-wheel-drive as standard.

The luxury SUV segment includes rivals like the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, and the ever-popular Volvo XC90. Prices for the 2022 BMW X7 start at just over $75,000 for the base model, while the M50i is priced at a stiff premium of nearly $25000, crossing the 6-figure barrier.

2022 BMW X7 Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The interiors follow a similar design theme as the rest of the lineup, although the quality of materials is vastly improved with impressive attention to detail. The X7 offers three rows of seating as standard for a maximum passenger capacity of 7. Customers can also opt for captain's chairs in the middle row to improve comfort. While the prices are on the higher side even for the base models, the quality on offer speaks for itself and the X7's cabin is one of the best in the segment. Fortunately, BMW hasn't moved on to capacitive buttons for most controls.

2022 BMW X7 Seating

As always, there are plenty of color themes to choose from including a unique dark blue/white color scheme. The M50i model also gets a sportier interior with several M badges littered throughout the cabin.

The dashboard design is very similar to the X5 but with some better materials used throughout. Leather and wood cover most areas and the infotainment display looks like it's an extension of the instrument cluster, neatly placed in the middle. The center console is also slightly tilted towards the driver. BMW's clever climate control system deserves special mention, integrating the climate displays and dials near the center vents. Below it, infotainment shortcuts are also provided for easy access. The drive mode selector, gear lever, and infotainment control knob are all placed neatly on the center console within easy reach of the driver.

The plush front seats offer exceptional comfort and support even for larger drivers. Headroom and legroom are impressive like all SUVs of this size and the high seating position provides good frontal visibility. With 14-way power adjustability as standard, finding the ideal driving position only takes a matter of minutes. The front seats also get heating functions as standard.

Moving to the rear seats, space and comfort levels are as impressive as the front. However, if you're looking for even better support and cushioning, BMW also offers captain's chairs in the middle row with power-adjustability and a separate center console. Opting for the cold weather package will also include heated rear seats. With the standard bench seat, all three passengers get a dedicated headrest and three-point seatbelt.

As the only model in BMW's lineup to offer a third row as standard, the space on offer is adequate for average-sized adults. However, getting to the back is easier said than done. While the standard bench seats fold down for easy entry, opting for the captain chairs will make entry a lot harder and time-consuming.

Both the front rows get a center armrest with integrated cupholders. When optioned with captain seats in the middle, a separate center console is included with extra storage and cupholders. BMW also includes a panoramic sunroof as standard across the range along. Opting for the cold weather package will add five separate climate zones with automatic climate control to keep passengers comfortable.

As the newest addition to the luxury full-size SUV market, the BMW X7 manages to carve out more interior space than both the Volvo XC90 and Audi Q7. However, the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class is still the most spacious option here especially if we consider rear-seat space.

2022 BMW X7 Infotainment

Like most modern BMWs, the X7 gets the latest iDrive system controlled through a massive 12.3-inch touchscreen display in the middle. BMW also offers a large rotary knob near the gear lever for easier access on the go. Gesture controls continue to make an appearance, although its best ignored unless you want to impress your passengers. Features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Bluetooth connectivity, SiriusXM satellite and HD radio, built-in navigation, and a 10-speaker premium audio system are included as standard.

The system also features over-the-air updates for the latest maps and functions. For an even better experience, the M50i model gets a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system to blast your tunes. Sadly, the 2022 BMW X7 can no longer be optioned with the 20-speaker audio system and the rear-seat entertainment system.

2022 BMW X7 Cargo Capacity

With all the seats up, the cargo capacity is below average at just 12.8 cubic feet, barely enough for your weekend luggage. Fortunately, most of these issues can be solved by folding the third-row down, liberating up to 48.6 cubic feet of space.

Folding the second row will liberate enough space to move a house at 90.4 cubic feet. However, if you opt for the captain seats, they don't fold down flat like the bench seats, limiting practicality.

Despite the average passenger space, the BMW X7 claws back some points by offering the most spacious trunk here with both the rear rows folded. However, all of its rivals offer better space with a full load of passengers, with the Volvo XC90 and Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class topping the list.

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

As with all luxury family SUVs, the X7 gets a practical cabin with a small concealed storage below the center stack, deep center console storage, and spacious door pockets on all four doors. Opting for the second-row captain seats will also include a second armrest. Even the third-row passengers get cup holders on either side.

2022 BMW X7 Creature Comforts

Available in just two trim levels, the BMW X7 gets all the luxuries you can think of in the base xDrive40i model including a powered dual-section tailgate, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry with push-button and remote start, heated front armrest, and steering wheel, four-zone automatic climate control, simulated leather upholstery, power-adjustable steering, adjustable ambient lighting, and more.

The M50i trim further adds upgraded multi-contour front seats, upgraded leather upholstery, soft-close doors, rear power window sunshades, a head-up display, and more. Features like massaging and ventilated front seats, and second-row captain’s chairs are available as an option.

Verdict

With a plush cabin and comfortable seating, the BMW X7 continues to be one of the most luxurious options in the segment, offering just the right amount of aggression and elegance. BMW has also taken the right approach with physical controls for most functions, making them a lot easier to access. The smooth infotainment system will also make your drives a lot more pleasurable. Overall, if you have the money for it, the 2022 BMW X7 is still one of the best full-size luxury SUVs out there.
