Carwow - BMW X7 vs Range Rover see which is the best luxury SUV

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Luxurious SUVs don’t get much better than this - the all-new BMW X7, and the recently revised Range Rover! The British behemoth has been around for almost 40 years and is instantly recognisable across the globe. But does the all-new 7-seater X7 have what it takes to go head-to-head with this SUV institution? Join Mat for his latest comparison review to find out!

Decent review. Most British reviewers seem biased towards RR, given their status symbol connotations in the UK. This reviewer does acknowledge the RR prestige, but separates it from the other aspects. I'd have to agree with most of the observations and conclusions he comes to.

... it's an X7 for me!

Just watched his review, he's quite entertaining and I agree with a lot of his conclusions.

I'm a British viewer
I'm glad the X7 wins
RR drivers are stuck up toffs or towie wannabes

The RR have laughable tech, very sluggish, buggy and the gearshifter... time to move forward Tata.

The X7 came out much better than expected.

I have just bought a Range Rover sport HST after test driving the X7 50i
I was totally unimpressed by the x7 for the price. The interior in the Range Rover is better, it drives better, all around a much better experience. This is coming from someone who owns an M3,M4 and an X5.

The red one I bought is with red interior
Not sure where you see 2 different interiors
Maybe the seat configuration is throwing you off

I agree with the materials/leather, and even the new LCD is slick, but since it’s smaller than an X5, no 3rd row, hard to compare many characteristics, especially handling, etc. Definitely two different vehicles.

I’ve always been a fan of the range rovers but the lack of a true 3rd row combined with reliability issues (not sure how warranted that is) have always lead me away from them. I feel like the x7 is a nice “in-between” between a more cushy ride gls and a sportier rr.

The RRS competes with the X5... odd cross shopping X7 vs RRS.

We have a RRS very comfortable, tech is slow and sluggish, not sporty at all but again very comfortable

Well the Range Rover and Range Rover sport is about the same size as the X7 and bigger than the x5 I know as I drove my x5 to check all those vehicles out
Might be weird to compare but other than a 3rd row seat o don't see it being in a different class

coldsteelrain your Range Rover sport HST looks beautiful in red. I'm enjoying our X7 50i but to each his own. Congrats.

I had a '14 RRS for a short time. I liked it, but I loved the E70 X5 more, so I sold the Range and went back to an X5 (...and sold my '14 335i when my '15 YMB ///M4 arrived). I would take the Range Rover over the hideous looking X7 though.

everyone blames the grille. For me its lack of proportion between the slim headlights and humongous grille next to it. Whoever designed the x5 x7 and 7 series etc should be shot.

Congrats but you are comparing a RR Sport to the X7. RR Sport competes with the X5, which is going to be much better to drive.

I don't think there's any denying the X7 is objectively the "better" vehicle on paper. Whether it be tech, powertrain, acceleration, overall performance, build quality, etc.

With that being said, the RR will always have more sex appeal.

Friend recently bought a RR Sport SVR, it's been at the dealer for some sort of a repair at least a half a dozen times for a total of 2-3 months, nothing but complaints from him

Ahhh that's what it was. Never seen the two tone interior RRs. Thought you had 2 lol. Thanks for clarifying. Looks phenomenal. Contemplating getting the RR sport for my mother since she loves RR but worried about mechanical issues since I'm deployed most of the year and she doesn't know cars. How's reliability been?

Good so far. Haven't had it for long and it's my first Range Rover/Actually a nonBMW car in a long time.
I have had BMW's for a while now (3 currently)and I can say that in my case every single one has had a fair share of reliability issues. Some more some less

We had an 18 full-size RR supercharged. Much prefer the X7 but for the prestige factor, yes, the RR wins.

For tech / drive / ergonomics, the X7 by a huge margin, in my opinion.

Nice spec I'm usually not a fan of red on the exterior of a car but that combo/ shade of red looks nice!
