BMW X7 vs Lexus LX


You want an SUV that can keep up with your needs. That means, you’ll need extra space for the occasional extra passenger, enough power to ramp up even your commute to work, and the premium comfort that comes with a luxury vehicle. Luckily for you, the 2020 BMW X7 and the 2020 Lexus LX are two vehicles that fit these criteria.

To help you decide which one is right for you, we at Reeves BMW Tampa have created this BMW X7 vs. Lexus LX review. After reading, you’ll know which is better for your Tampa, South Tampa, Brandon, and Wesley Chapel, FL, travels. Let’s get started!

Interior Space

Whether you have a large family and need room for everyone, you run the after-school carpool, or you just prefer to have the extra space, the BMW X7 and the Lexus LX have exactly what you need thanks to their three rows of seating. However, three rows of seating don’t come standard on the Lexus LX.

BMW X7 vs Lexus LX Performance

Each time you get behind the wheel of your luxury SUV, you’re treated to a hair-raising experience because of the mighty engine under the hood. But which one provides you with the power you need?

Comparing the engines of the BMW X7 vs. Lexus LX, you’ll notice two major differences right away: the 5.7L V8 engine of the LX is more powerful than the standard 3.0L TwinPower Turbo engine of the X7—but the LX only offers one engine. The X7, on the other hand, has four different engines to choose from.

While the Lexus LX offers more power than the standard BMW X7 engine, the X7 leaves the LX in its dust when equipped with any of the other three engine configurations, especially the optional 4.4L BMW ALPINA Bi-Turbo V8 engine.

Interior Comfort

BMW X7 Interior ComfortYou wouldn’t be driving a luxury SUV if the cabin weren’t equipped with top-of-the-line amenities. Some of the premium comfort features you can expect include multi-adjust seats, 4-zone climate control, and exceptional upholstery.

While both the BMW X7 and the Lexus LX have premium features, the X7 has far more comfort features when compared to the LX:

  • Optional 20-way power adjust front seats vs. 14-way power seats
  • Available heated & cooled cupholders
  • Available massaging front seats

Another feature you can enjoy with the BMW X7 not offered with the Lexus LX is the available Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof. This feature adds lighting to your standard Panoramic Glass Roof that changes with your mood.

Want to relax after a long day at work? Set the lights to a cool temperature. Want to feel like you’re on your own private island on a rainy day? The warm orange color is just what you’re looking for.

BMW X7 vs Lexus LX: The Verdict

While both the 2020 BMW X7 and the 2020 Lexus LX are SUVs large enough for your family’s needs, only the BMW X7 offers the power and comfort needed to take your Tampa and South Tampa, Florida, travels to the next level.
