They placed RR 1st, X7 2nd
I wouldn't expect anything else from a UK reviewer.

Thanks for that. I'm generally not into the frantic, ADD, Kardashian-thing, semi-vapid, although she did definitely know some things that she was talking about. I do appreciate that even non-BMW car people really like the X7.

I love how she goes "it actually has three rows"

[QUOTE=2020bmwx7;25593192]Comparison of X7 to GLS by The Straight Pipes guys on YouTube:


I can't believe more people like the GLS inside. The screens and the four vents in the middle are awful IMO. Also, the controls on the doors are strange looking. Not a great design inside or out IMO.

Sometimes less is more.

Well, the design elements are subjective or else there won't be so many choices in the market. Though the reviewers liked the GLS interior, exterior was not much appreciated compared to X7 which was more aggressive in styling. Mercedes has been successful with its interior design for a while compared to BMW. I was in the Mercedes Family earlier but my reasons to shift to BMW are performance/handling and many other small features in tech compared to GLS. My wife when in passenger seat thinks GLS is smooth but then she enjoys driving the X7.
Both have their strengths and weaknesses and for me personally, X7 is a winner

The guys in that video mention that it's mostly about the giant screen, which I suspect is right it is pretty striking looking in person. But once you get past that, the appearance of the GLS interior as a whole is actually pretty boring/cheap looking, I think. I disagree with them on the appearance of the instrument cluster/gauges, though... they like the GLS, but I think the graphics look cartoonish. Overall, I definitely find the interior of the X7 to look much more sophisticated. (What, me biased?)

I'm always curious why they make our instrument cluster so boring. I almost went with the GLS over the X and the Aviator because of the instrument cluster.

Hey BMW (and Ford too) there's color in the cluster screen, why not use it? It's just way to much black for me.

I salute Mercedes for trying something new with interiors. I don't particularly like the GLS interior either, but I appreciate they are doing something different.

The X7 is gorgeous, but I do wish there was a little more differentiation between BMW models.

I admit I don't know where car interiors should go next. If Tesla Model 3 is the answer, I'm not very excited about it.

Surely this is the most detailed?!

Sorry if this was already posted but I don't think so. It's reviewed from the UK but almost entirely relevant internationally and in the UK. 78 minutes of solid rapid-fire detail, clearly delivered. YES 78 MINUTES!

Honestly I think it's an astounding quality if you don't mind the long duration. And the title is stupid (it's a far more serious review than that title implies).

Hope it's helpful to some:

New one from Canada (specifically the M50i I sort of wonder if it's the same vehicle they used in that X7/GLS comparison from TheStraightPipes).
