The 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS has quickly solidified itself as the S-Class of the SUV lineup. But how does this luxurious vehicle hold up against the 2019 BMW X7? We are about to find out.
For this comparison we will be taking the specs and features of the lowest trims of both models. That means that you will be seeing information from the GLS 450 4MATIC®* and the X7 xDrive40i. You should note that the GLS has 3 trims; GLE 450 4MATIC®*, 550 4MATIC®*, and AMG® 63. The BMW X7 only has 2; the X7 xDRIVE40i, and the X7 xDrive50i. So, if you are looking for specific features that you aren’t finding on the lowest trim of the GLS, you could potentially find them on a higher trim.
Let’s take a look at what we can expect to see on these two popular SUV vehicles. Of course, if you have any questions afterward you can feel free to contact us here at Mercedes-Benz of Scottsdale.

As you can see, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLS SUV offers some great features and specs. However, it is pretty closely tied with the 2019 BMW X7. Still, with a lower starting MSRP** those small differences can add up. You’ll have a more powerful vehicle, more cargo space, and more standard and available features in the GLS SUV than you will in the X7 xDrive40i.
Not to mention you have the option of having ventilated front seats in the GLS SUV—practically a must when living in Arizona! Additionally, if you were thinking about going up to a different trim, these features and power specs will only increase in the GLS.
