BMW X7 vs Mercedes-Benz GLS: Sky’s the Limit Interior

BMW X7 InteriorOf course, one of the most well-known amenities of driving a luxury SUV is the premium interior it brings with it. The moment you step foot inside either the X7 or the GLS, you’ll be transported to a world of tranquil relaxation.

This is possible thanks to features like standard heated front seats, optional ventilated seat features, and available massage function.

While both vehicles share these features, the BMW X7 has additional comfort features you won’t find with the Mercedes-Benz GLS, like the standard 3-panel Panoramic Moonroof with optional Panoramic Sky Lounge LED Roof.

This glass roof makes your already-spacious cabin feel larger than life. When coupled with the Sky Lounge feature, you can set your roof to a warm orange to bring in some sunlight on cloudy days or change it to a cool tone to help you relax.

Another standard feature with the BMW X7 that’s only found with the Mercedes-Benz GLS after an optional upgrade is the automatic 4-zone climate control system. This allows you, your front-seat passenger, and your rear-seat passengers to independently set and adjust your climate settings throughout your commute without ever affecting one another’s settings.

With the Mercedes-Benz GLS, your SUV only comes standard with a dual-zone automatic climate control system that allows you and your front-seat passenger to make these independent adjustments.
