BMW of SLO - A San Luis Obispo Car Dealer
Presents the 2020 BMW X7
The 2020 BMW X7 is a big three-row SUV that provides plenty of passenger space and a luxurious cabin. San Luis Obispo car dealerships were impressed by the fact that although the X7 is the largest vehicle in the BMW roster, it still delivers the exceptional handling that BMW buyers have come to expect. The BMW X7 features ample cargo space, as well as many standard and optional upmarket features.
The notable update for 2020 is the addition of the new high-performance M50i trim, which is equipped with a version of the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that’s even more powerful. The two upper trims get even more standard features, including remote engine start, gesture controls, soft-close doors and more. Some option packages get revised, and there’s now an available five-zone climate control system. Buyers looking for an SUV that offers plenty of space, a refined cabin, a long list of standard features and powerful engines should place the 2020 BMW X7 at the top of their shopping list when they visit car dealers near San Luis Obispo.
Automotive Press Praise
It’s no surprise that the 2020 BMW X7 continues to garner positive reviews. Autoblog wrote: “The 2020 BMW X7 is the Ultimate Opulence Machine. It's big, it's plush and it'll pamper six or seven people in indulgence. It can have the finest, ornately stitched leather this side of Rolls-Royce, controls topped in glass, and a panoramic sunroof etched with a light-capturing pattern. The stereo can pump out 1,500 watts through 20 speakers. You want swank? The X7 will give you swank.”
