BMW X7 Gets Sporty New Look With Stylish Body Kit

Tuning / Comments

Unlike the Alpina XB7, there are no ugprades under the hood.

Before the polarizing design of the new M3, M4 and 4 Series became a talking point, the BMW X7 was controversial when it launched thanks to its controversial kidney grille that carried over from the original concept. Spy shots have shown the X7 is getting a facelift for the 2022 model year, which will take the X7's styling in a different direction with a new split headlight design.

If you want to give the BMW X7 an even bolder appearance, Japan's Wald has launched a new body kit for the large luxury SUV. Dubbed the Wald Sports Line, the tuning package adds a number of sporty enhancements.

At the front, a new splitter has been added with integrated LED headlights that make the front fascia look more striking, while new side skirts make the already mammoth X7 even wider. As standard, the BMW X7 rides on 21-inch wheels but the Japanese tuner's take on the luxury SUV is fitted with larger 24-inch wheels.

As for the back, the modified X7 features a new rear bumper incorporating a prominent mesh grille and a large diffuser. A tailgate spoiler completes the package but there are no power upgrades under the hood.

In Japan, the Wald Sports Line is available for X7 M Sport models including the diesel-powered 35d M, which is not sold in America, as well as the M50i. In the US, the X7 M50i is powered by a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 rated at 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Slotting below the M50i is the xDrive40i, which utilizes a 3.0-liter turbo inline-six engine good for 335 hp and 330 lb-ft.

If you want more power, the Alpina XB7 is a better alternative than Wald's tuning package since it offers a performance upgrade that complements its sportier looks. Under the hood, Alpina extracts 612 hp and 590 lb-ft from BMW's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, making it the next best thing to a proper BMW X7 M.
