Thus, the manufacturer is trying to reduce the average cost of the model.

According to one of the employees of the European BMW Motor Show, this year the X7 xDrive 50i will disappear from the lineup. Thus, the only crossover of this line with an 8-cylinder engine will remain only the X7 M50i, which will cost customers less than the Alpina XB7.

In addition, options such as remote engine start and a 48-volt soft hybrid will be available for the BMW X7 xDrive 40i version. And the X7 M50i will get heated front seats, steering wheel and armrest. Cars will also acquire an updated Comfort Access keyless entry system.

At the same time, crossovers of the 2021 model year will lose the night vision system, the off-road package and the entertainment system for rear passengers. In addition, some leathers, ventilated front seats and a “crystal” package, which will now be available only in the most expensive version, are excluded from the options.

In the case of the BMW X5, everything is not so sad. The model will also “lose” the X5 xDrive 50i version, an off-road package, an entertainment system for rear passengers, some leather trim and front seats with massage function.

In addition to all of the above, prices for 2021 model year cars were published. According to these data, the cost of the BMW X5 sDrive 40i will increase by $ 500 and will be at least $ 60,395. The X5 xDrive 40i will also add $ 500, but the cost of the fastest X5M model will not change. The BMW X7 xDrive 40i will rise in price by $ 1,000, and the X5 M50i by $ 200.
