The Mercedes-Benz GLS has been fully redesigned for 2020, and suffice to say, we’re pretty pleased with the results. Like, overly pleased. Among the upgrades are an improved fuel economy and a revamped suspension. More standard and available features are also now along for the ride.

What hasn’t changed is the well-balanced feel and smooth handling. The cabin, as well, continues to blow our minds with its lavish, roomy elegance. It’s clear that this is a hard vehicle to compete with, even in the luxury market.

But the 2020 BMW X7 wants to try. Read on to see how these two machines compare in our head-to-head 2020 GLS Vs. 2020 X7 model comparison. Or, shall we say… model deathmatch.
