2020 BMW X7 vs 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS

Serving Utica, NY

Are you debating between brands' luxury and overall superiority like BMW and Mercedes-Benz for your next SUV purchase? The BMW X7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLS are both impressive choices for Utica's drivers who need the functionality of three rows in the cabin of a luxury vehicle. Which of these full-size SUV models will win your heart after you compare them closely?


The BMW X7 has only been available to luxury SUV shoppers for a few years, so its exterior design is both appealing and fresh from end to end. Its design reflects contemporary elements with confident height and smoothly curved surfaces. At the front, this look is established by a tall nose with a vertical, dual-section grille and slanted LED headlights. Additional exterior features are raised roof rails, well-placed air vents, a hands-free power liftgate, and other items. The Mercedes-Benz GLS has a similar look with a tall, flat nose and lean contouring. The grille has horizontal bars that reach toward the large headlights.


The 2020 X7's interior is elegant with a nod toward modernity. Quilted leather seats across three rows are combined with digital display screens for the instrumentation panel and the infotainment system. A navigation system, premium accent materials, smart device integration, wireless device charging, and other equipment will be part of your driving experience in the X7. In comparison, the Mercedes-Benz GLS has two digital screens that connect horizontally to define the dashboard's design. A series of four air vents and a line of ambient lighting run underneath the screens. This large SUV has folding seats in the rear rows, an auto climate control system, a sound system, and other equipment.


The 2020 X7 and the GLS have many assistive safety technologies to protect you and your passengers on the road. For the BMW X7, the equipment includes speed limit detection, a lane departure alert, active blind-spot detection, a front collision warning, and several other features. In the GLS, on the other hand, its assistive features include pre-safe, attention assist, and trailer stability assist.
