BMW X7 M50d SUV will be launched in India on 31st January 2019 at the India Art Fair to be held in New Delhi from 31st Jan to 2nd Feb 2019.
The latest BMW M50d SUV’s production-spec model was first seen at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2018 featuring a quad-turbocharged, 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder diesel motor which can churn 400hp and a colossal 760Nm of torque.
It featured alongside xDrive40i with a 340hp, 3.0-litre straight-six turbo-petrol motor and xDrive30d with a 265hp, 3.0-litre straight-six turbo-diesel engine.
In India, BMW will bring the popular models – xDrive40i and xDrive30d by September 2019. The localization of the X7 is the reason for the long gap between the launches of the M50d and the lower models.
An 8-speed automatic transmission will power all four wheels as standard in all the three models. Also, an off-road version is in the pipeline which would have four surface-specific drive modes.
The seven-seat BMW SUV’s interior is based on the smaller SUV’s design, in which the opulence of the 7-Series merges with the versatility of the X5. The dashboard is multi-layered which includes conventional 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment and fully digital instrument panel.
It also boasts of a four-zone climate control system, parking assist with reverse camera, reclining function in all the three rows, soft-close doors and a three-piece glass sunroof.
Globally, BMW offers the X7 with a seven-seat configuration (with a bench seat in the middle) and also with a six-seat layout (with captain seats in the second row).
The price for the BMW X7 M50d can be expected at around Rs 1.6 crore (ex-showroom). In India, the X7 series will pit against the Land Rover Discovery and the Mercedes-Benz GLS.
