2023 BMW X7 vs. Its Competition

2023 BMW X7
Brian Wong Brian Wong West Coast Editor

The large BMW X7 is a direct rival for the Mercedes-Benz GLS, which stretches out past the GLE into Maybach territory with sumptuous luxury.

The Audi Q7 is smaller, especially in the third row, but comes loaded with impressive standard safety features.

Redesigned for 2022, the new Range Rover has lightly evolved looks, but a seven-seat edition launches this year, and an electric version on the way.

The Lincoln Aviator has the luxury bona fides of the Navigator, but it can fit in the garage.

The Volvo XC90 continues to impress with attractive styling, good standard features, and a mild-hybrid system of its own, but lacks the performance options of the Germans.
