For those who need a highly-capable vehicle with loads of luxury features, full-size luxury SUVs like the all-new BMW X7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLS are solid choices. But which new luxury performance SAV is right for you and your family? Your BMW dealership will help you find the perfect fit with this brief comparison of the first-ever BMW X7 and the returning Mercedes-Benz GLS.

Technology and Features

The new BMW X7 is elegantly equipped with BMW's latest and greatest technologies and conveniences, including dual 12.3-inch HD display screens, Wi-Fi integration, premium surround sound, massage seats, and wireless device charging. The cockpit is sleek, advanced, and intuitive. The infotainment system can be controlled via gestures, natural voice commands, and responsive tactile controls.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV is well-equipped for its age. This generation of the GLS was released in 2013, and the 2019 GLS is essentially unchanged from the previous year. The old infotainment system is controlled with a smattering of buttons, knobs, and dials, and the lack of modern technology makes smartphone integration a chore.

Modern Sport Styling

Although both the BMW X7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLS are high-class luxury cruisers with high-performance power, we believe that only one looks the part: the new X7's daring front end, bold silhouette, and sleek motorsport styling leave little doubt that the X7 is up for any adventure on the track, in traffic, or down the trail. The Mercedes-Benz GLS, while elegant in its own way, can come off as bulky and outdated. Its looks convey its strength and size, but there's not much sport to be seen.

While we believe the BMW X7 is the clear winner, ultimately the choice is yours. Come see how the new X7 excels in person at Long Beach BMW--we're certain you'll find your fit right away.
