2019 BMW X7 vs. Its Competition

Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The BMW X7 is sized about like its German rivals, the Mercedes GLS and Audi Q7.

Those two have had a hold on the market for about a decade, making the Bimmer a latecomer with some catching up to do.

The sublime Volvo XC90 has been around for a few years now, but it's hardly showing its age.

Detroit competes well in this segment with the Cadillac Escalade and especially the Lincoln Navigator.

The Caddy has truck bonafides, for better or worse.

Look to the Navigator for its plush interior and subtle style.
