2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS vs. 2020 BMW X7

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS is one of the luxury large SUVs to look forward to, with its fully redesigned look. It offers a great balance of handling and ride giving it the comfort that users need. This car knows how to impress with all the technologies and safety features that it has been gifted with.

With high-end cabin materials, the 2020 BMW X7 offers muscular engine options. It now comes with a 523-horsepower M50i trim. Also promising a comfortable ride, there is a list of standard safety features to watch out for in this ride.

Design & Style

A large luxury SUV that gives you the option to include captain’s chairs so that it can seat six people comfortably, the GLS is one ride that can also seat up to a maximum of seven people. The front seats are heated and are power-adjustable as well. It uses synthetic leather upholstery in its upscale cabin. Rugged as it looks, this car remains enough to impress modern buyers for its exterior look.

A well-trimmed and spacious interior define the cabin of 2020 X7. With a standard seating configuration for seven, you can trade the second-row bench seat for a captain’s chair so that it can seat six people comfortably. The third row is not enough to seat adults, though. It is best for younger, smaller passengers.

Technology & Safety

The GLS comes with the new Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) infotainment system which replaces the COMAND® infotainment system. This features a 12.3-inch touch screen, and supports smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. It also has a navigation system, a satellite radio, an HD Radio, a 13-speaker Burmester premium stereo, nine USB ports, and a wireless device charging. Standard safety features include the surround-view parking camera system, crosswind assist, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a driver condition monitor. It also has forward collision warning, automatic park assist, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring, and adaptive headlights.

The X7 has plenty of technologies too. The iDrive infotainment is supported by a 12.3-inch touchscreen too. This also has a navigation system, satellite radio, HD radio, *Bluetooth® interface, and three USB ports. While it supports Apple CarPlay, Android auto integration is not available. Safety features include rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive headlights with automatic high beams, a driver drowsiness monitor, and the Active Driving Assistant package.


The new GLS model from Mercedes-Benz gives you two engine choices. One is the inline six-cylinder, 3.0-liter engine that turbocharges it to yield a maximum of 362 horsepower. The other variation is a V8, 4.0-liter turbocharged engine that generates up to 483 horsepower. The six-cylinder engine in the X7 produces 335 horsepower, while its V8 produces 456 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

A beautiful car loaded with features to love, the 2020 GLS is one car that will surely delight larger families out there. It has great engine variations, plus it has a reliable set of technologies as well. What else can you ask for?
