See How the 2020 BMW X7 Fares Against the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class

With all the buzz about small luxury crossovers lately, it's important to remember what made you love SUVs in the first place - all the space!  The 2020 BMW X7 is a luxury SUV with plenty of room for you and your family - or a group of friends from the office. Seven people can cruise around San Antonio comfortably in the X7, with space left over for their sports gear. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS is another fine German luxury SUV. But here at BMW of San Antonio, we just think the BMW X7 is roomier, more powerful, and more fuel-efficient.

The 2020 BMW X7 vs. the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class

  • The BMW X7 Has More Available Horsepower: Want to get around faster in San Antonio? The X7 has an available 523-horsepower engine that'll get it from 0 to 60 in just 4.5 seconds! The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class's biggest engine only puts out 483 horsepower.
  • The BMW X7 Has More Passenger Space: If you want to take the whole family to a San Antonio Spurs game, bring them in the BMW X7. Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the X7 than in the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, because it has almost 4 inches more back seat legroom. Taller people will also be more comfortable up front, because the X7 has nearly two inches more front headroom than the GLS-Class.
  • The BMW X7 Gets Better Fuel Economy: You might not have thought a big luxury SUV could be fuel-efficient, but the BMW X7 does better than most. It gets 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with its six-cylinder base engine. San Antonio drivers will pay less for gas in the X7 than they would with the Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class, which only gets 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
  • The BMW X7 Has More Cargo Space: If you need an SUV that's big enough for all your luggage, get the BMW X7. It has over 90 cubic feet of cargo space with all the back seats down, and 12.8 cubic feet with all of them up. The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class only has 84.7 cubic feet of cargo room with all its rear seats folded down.
  • The BMW X7 Has a Better Infotainment System: A good infotainment system can help keep everybody entertained and happy on long trips. Both these luxury SUVs have high-tech systems with lots of bells and whistles. However, the BMW X7's iDrive system is very user-friendly, with multiple ways to control most functions. You can use the touch screen, voice recognition, physical buttons on the dashboard, as well as a knob and touchpad on the center console. The GLS-Class's MBUX infotainment system works well enough, but its learning curve and sheer amount of physical controls may take longer to master.
  • The BMW X7 Comes with a Panoramic Moonroof: The new X7 comes standard with a panoramic moonroof that makes the interior light and airy. The Mercedes-Benz GLS-Class only comes with a sunroof standard.
