BMW has launched a new entry-level variant of its flagship SUV, the X7 in the Indian market. The new entry-level BMW X7 xDrive 30d DPE is offered with a price tag of Rs 92.50 lakh, ex-showroom (India).
The introduction of the new base variant makes the BMW X7 more affordable in the Indian market by almost Rs 6 lakh. However, with the introduction of the new entry-level trim, BMW has also increased prices of its mid and top-spec variants as well.
Now available in three variants: xDrive 30d DPE, xDrive 30d DPE Signature and xDrive 40i. The mid and top-spec variants of the BMW X7 are now priced at Rs 1.02 crore and Rs 1.06 crore, respectively. This is a price hike of Rs 4 lakh on the mid-spec DPE Signature variant and a Rs 8 lakh hike on the top-spec xDrive 40i trim. All prices are ex-showroom (India).
The new entry-level BMW X7 still offers a host of features as standard. However, it does miss out on a few features such as LED Laser headlamps, five-zone climate control, two 10.2-inch rear-seat entertainment systems and a 360-degree camera.
Although it still comes with adaptive LED headlamps, 21-inch alloy wheels, four-zone climate control, 10-speaker music system, electrically-adjustable front seats with memory function, 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, another 12.3-inch display for the instrument console, panoramic sunroof and automatic tailgate; among a host of others.
In terms of powertrain, the new BMW X7 xDrive 30d DPE variant uses the same engine as on the mid-spec DPE Signature trim. This comes in the form of a 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbo-diesel unit producing 254bhp and 620Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels via BMW's xDrive system.
The new entry-level variant of the flagship SUV from BMW is offered in a range of three colour choices: Metallic White, Arctic Grey and Phytonic Blue. The SUV is the first-ever seven-seater offering in BMW's history.
Apart from the above-mentioned changes, the new entry-level BMW X7 xDrive 30d DPE remains unchanged. The SUV carries forward the same visuals, including the large signature kidney grille.
