2020 BMW X7 vs. Its Competition

2020 BMW X7
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The BMW X7 competes with other luxury SUVs including the three-row Mercedes-Benz GLS Class that was new last year, too.

Both are supremely comfortable and pricey, must-drives for any luxury shopper.

The Audi Q7 is a little smaller than the X7 and offers standard all-wheel drive, although it’s not as lavish.

The XC90 feels just as special, but its interior is a little tighter.

The Cadillac Escalade is due for a new version in 2021, 2020 models should be discounted.

The Lincoln Navigator is old-school luxury and very comfortable, we like it.
