With almost 2.4 tons to pull, even with plenty of aluminium in its make-up it’s tempting to think that the most humble xDrive30d version of the X7 will be something of a sluggard, but the 3-litre diesel makes short work of the task. With 451lb ft of torque available from 2000rpm, the X7 is more than quick enough – 0-62mph is dispatched in 7.0sec, and whether you are in a hurry or just getting around, there is never any doubt a slug of torque is available with a small squeeze of the throttle. That the X7 is capable of 147mph just underlines the point, and although there are quicker versions to choose from, the X7 xDrive30d should not be dismissed as a compromise.
