Perfected driving pleasure: the driving dynamics and design of the BMW X7 M Automobiles set new standards within their class. The sporty character is underpinned by extremely powerful motorsport components such as the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission and the M Sport exhaust system – standard features that distinguish both the BMW X7 M50d and the BMW X7 M50i.

- Driving dynamics
BMW X7 M50d
The BMW X7 M50d offers outstanding precision and agility. The dynamic characteristics are increased, and intensive driving pleasure assured, thanks to the M50d-specific calibration of the suspension, the variable sport steering, the standard M Sport brake, the M Sport differential and the M Sport exhaust system.
BMW X7 M50i
The BMW X7 M50i offers outstanding precision and agility. The dynamic characteristics are increased, and intensive driving pleasure assured, thanks to the M50i-specific calibration of the suspension, the variable sport steering, the standard M Sport brake, the M Sport differential and the M Sport exhaust system.
M sport differential
The M sport differential optimises traction and driving stability when changing lanes or accelerating out of a bend, when taking bends at high speeds or on different road surfaces. Traction is optimised with the help of an electronically operated device that reduces the difference in revolution speed between the rear wheels.
Steptronic Sport transmission
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission offers incredibly sporty gear changes. Whether automatic or manual using gearshift paddles or gear lever – for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving. In SPORT mode and with the gear lever in the left-hand S/M position, the gear shifts are configured for the best performance.
M sport exhaust system
The M sport exhaust system delivers a sound that can be adjusted to an even more intense engine sound with the driving dynamics buttons in the SPORT and SPORT+ programmes, while the comfort-oriented programme prioritises more discreet engine acoustics.
M Sport brake

Executive Drive Pro
The Executive Drive Pro Suspension control system ensures exceptional driving comfort at the same time as outstanding driving dynamics. The system is based on active roll stabilisers that continuously regulate electromechanically while driving, thus reducing body inclinations to a minimum.
