Exactly. Very Q80ish

I'd say just a tad better... MB typically goes all in on aggressive exteriors. Clearly they are holding back and that will hurt sales

the benz looks a little "tougher" to me. X7 interior is much better to me but I HATE the solid flat screen on all the new benz interiors. Some people love it but I just can't get in to it.

Both cars look great on the outside though.

They both look like minivans. Still like the more aerodynamic appearance of the GLS

Looks better than the X7 unless you are a BMW tree hugger. Interior is also miles better.

The GLS is outright hideous. Looks like a microbus.

Wow, this thread just got nasty. Do you want to buy a GLS, then buy a GLS. Do you want to buy a X7, then buy a X7. Absolutely no need to throw rocks at one another. Relax, they're just cars.

That’s what happens when a thread gets put on the Bimmerpost news page.

Agreed!

I really wanted to like the GLS. Wanted to consider one. But every time I saw them on the road, I just thought “yuppie mom soccer van.”

Love this, thanks for sharing. Still dig the second moonroof in the third row.

I had a feeling the GLS would look good after the ugly ass GLE's remodel made it look attractive.

The GLS' interior is finally up to par with the times as well.

You're really just splitting hairs with both these cars. But given what I've seen from both BMW and Mercedes lately, I'll give the edge to BMW when it comes to interior material quality. It seems like all GLS' are shipped to dealers with MB-Tex. BMW wouldn't dare even offer Sensatec an option on the X7. Then there's some of the plastics in Merc cabins...

That's just your opinion...

I do think the GLS has a slight edge on the exterior because the Bimmer is very angular, I prefer the Merc's softer edges.

I like the Bimmer's interior more, and I'm sure quality will be a tad better.

Could be worse, I sat in an $80k Audi Q8 with plastics up and down the door panel and super cheap feeling leather. Not too mention all the plastics were very VW Jetta-esque, Audi has some great interior designs (except for the new double touchscreen) but interior materials are far behind BMW and Mercedes.
