2019 Range Rover vs. BMW X7

  

In recent years, the luxury SUV has cemented its place in the American auto market. Loaded with robust engines, slick interiors, and reliable performance, their popularity is entirely understandable. 

Several luxury carmakers have enlarged their entries to include larger, three-row models. Two legendary brands like BMW and Land Rover are top players in the larger luxury SUV game with the 2019 BMW X7 and 2019 Range Rover. This is the inaugural year for the X7 model, while the Range Rover has been in production for nearly 50 years. 

Performance

 

The Range Rover comes equipped with a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engine that achieves an impressive 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. The higher-level Supercharged and Autobiography trims are equipped with a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 with a hefty 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. The Range Rover is also available with the more fuel economy-conscious Td6 diesel engine. 

The BMW X7 is available in the xDrive40i and xDrive50i trims. The 40i comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6 engine that hits 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. The 50i boasts a 4.4-liter V-8 twin-turbo engine with 456 horsepower and 479 pound-feet of torque. 

Off-road adventure-seekers will appreciate Range Rover's Terrain Response 2 system that adapts the engine and gears to different modes, including eco, comfort, gravel, and mud and ruts. BMW is similarly offering a new Dynamic Handling Package, intended to change the suspension and brakes and engage active rear-wheel steering in demanding conditions.

Luxury & Convenience

There is no question that cars like BMW and Range Rover are synonymous with comfort and luxury. Indeed, BMW's ownership of Rolls Royce is much to the benefit of the X7 buyer, who will surely appreciate the feeling of utmost luxury in the SUV's design. 

The often-neglected third row of seats receives climate control, speakers, and dedicated lights. The second row can be configured as a bench or as captain's seats that reduce the headcount to six but in exchange offer plush headrests and power adjustments. The sumptuous interior can be clad in a quilted cream and blue combination that is refined and unique. Drivers will appreciate the 12-inch touch-screen display loaded with standard BMW navigation, among other features.

The Range Rover offers a bevy of interior design amenities that create a first-class experience each time you get behind the wheel. The wide, deep-cushion seats with supple leather finishes offer an exceedingly smooth ride. The optional rear Executive-class seats, standard on the Range Rover Autobiography, offer heated armrests in addition to a deeply luxurious heated calf rest for an unparalleled ride. 

The Range Rover also includes other ingenious interior features, including optional hot stone massage seats with 25 relaxing massage programs. Once everyone has disembarked from the car and the doors have locked, a sunblind engages automatically to prevent the car from overheating and to minimize air conditioning demands. 

Both the BMW X7 and Range Rover offer a premium large-scale SUV loaded with amenities and features for a spectacular driving experience. The Range Rover, with its long history of production, stronger engines, and stunning amenities, is a solid choice that will keep you happy for many miles ahead.
