If you're looking to buy a large, high-end sport utility vehicle, you're probably looking at cars like the Range Rover, with impressive off-road capabilities that promise a lavish ride and confidently convey a message of status. Luckily, there are several vehicles currently on the market that tick all of those boxes. We've compared the two of the top options, the new BMW X7 and the classic and iconic Range Rover, to help you make that purchasing decision. 

Luxury and Convenience

 

While brands like BMW and Land Rover are both known for providing high quality and plenty of luxury features, in the luxury SUV category, the passenger experience is just as important as the driver's. The 2019 Range Rover delivers on that front. Third-row seating isn't standard, but what that translates to is abundant comfort for second-row passengers. There's plenty of leg room and the seats tilt back at a considerable angle. Want extending leg cushions and a massage function in your chair? They're available as added extras too. The base models have full leather seats and 16-way power-adjustable front seats. The second row also folds flat for when you need to transport more gear than passengers. 

The X7 has three rows of seats, all of which are electrically adjustable, and can carry up to seven people.  However, rear-passenger comfort is not prioritized in the same way as with the Land Rover. 

The Ranger Rover also boasts a cooler compartment in the front console as well as an air cleansing system for better respiratory health. You can even buy a waterproof wristband key, so you can exercise without a plastic and metal key weighing down your pocket.

Performance

The Range Rover has a number of available configurations and even comes in a plug-in hybrid model with a four-cylinder engine and a lithium-ion battery producing a combined 400 horsepower. More traditional options include a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 producing 340 horsepower, a 3.0-liter supercharged turbo-diesel, producing 254 horsepower, or a stunning 5.0-liter V-8 with an awesome 518 horsepower. Additionally, there are several drive modes to improve off-road experiences. 

The X7 is available in a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder model which produces 335 horsepower and a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 netting 456 horsepower. Both vehicles can reach 60 mph in 6 seconds or less, but the Range Rover has just a bit more power behind the pedal. 

Safety

Naturally, safety is covered by both high-end brands. The X7 has active cruise control, steering and lane control assist, evasion assist, and side collision protection. There are also warnings for lane changes and driving the wrong way. The Range Rover has comparable specifications, offering adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, emergency braking, and a lane departure warning.

BMW's largest car ever, the X7, is due to hit the streets in spring, but it's still a virtual unknown in many ways and doesn't offer the track record of the classic Range Rover. The X7's larger size means that the 2019 Range Rover is likely to be easier to maneuver in confined spaces like city streets, and if you're looking for something that is good for off-roading, nothing beats the the comfort and efficiency of a Range RoverIf you're ready to buy a 2019 Land Rover Range Rover, contact Hennessy Land Rover Gwinnett today to learn more.
