2019 BMW X7 vs. 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS
Large luxury SUVs are the backbone of comfortable adventures that include the best people to travel with. This segment offers drivers a chance to experience industry-leading capability, class-defying comfort and style that evokes a timeless sense of elegance and grace. For this reason, models in this segment are tasked with being capable family vehicles as well as luxurious performance magnates.
Brand-new for the 2019 model year, the BMW X7 is reshaping this class in its own image. Discarding the stodgy, limousine-lite nature of the segment, the X7 is seeking to reinvigorate drivers who need more than five seats with compelling performance and an interior that feels a lot like home. Up against the 2019 BMW X7 today is the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS, a vehicle that seemingly takes pride in its obstinate disposition toward progress. Let’s see how they do!

2019 BMW X7 Brings More than Just Beginner's Luck
As you can see, the 2019 BMW X7 enters the field and is able to immediately surpass one of the totem models in the luxury full-size SUV segment.
Offering a more efficient base engine, a more powerful performance engine, better comfort and convenience features, stronger exterior style and an abundance of touches that could only come from BMW, the 2019 X7 is the luxury SUV for those who want daily drivability and weekend-ready performance on hand.
From the base model up, you’ll be looking at more features. The standard 10-speaker audio system is rich and immersive. More front-row headroom makes the 2019 BMW X7 the perfect vehicle for those who want more step-in flexibility and height. A more comfortable front-row experience sees better seating for drivers and passengers and both seats having standard lumbar support (only standard for the driver in the GLS).
Finally, although style is subjective, we think the 2019 BMW X7 wins that race handily.
