BMW just launched its X7 M50d and how could Mercedes just stay and watch. The German rival just launched the 2020 Mercedes GLS to compete with the X7 new launch. Let’s get a little deeper into the car specs.

What’s new overall???

Priced at 99.90 lakhs, the German SUV 2020 Mercedes GLS is the lastest entry and is a sloppy looking car. The GLS will be offered in both petrol and diesel trims for the Indian buyers. The twin slate grille and sleek headlights do give it a new look but not a very charming one. The new GLS has more round wheel arches and silhouette. The 21-inch alloy wheels shine bright and give the SUV an aggressive tall stance. The rear fits LED taillights that have some curves rather than edges and are connected by a chrome strip.

Inside the new 2020 Mercedes GLS, is a luxury and refined atmosphere. The door opens and the eyes pop out with twin-screen setup which consists of a digital driver’s display and Mercedes’ brilliant MBUX infotainment system. The top variant is full of tech ingredients, some of which are a Burmester audio system,power-adjustable seats, front seats with massage function, and up to 5-zone climate control. A panoramic sunroof opens a channel of fresh air. The Mercedes’ AIRMATIC suspension system the ride as smooth as possible. Safety features include:

  • 9 airbags
  • ABS with EBD
  • front and rear parking sensors

  • park assist
  • a 360-degree camera
  • electronic stability control

2020 Mercedes GLS vs 2020 BMW X7 M50d

Mercedes GLS 2020 comes with a 3.0liter diesel engine capable of 330 PS and a 3.0liter petrol engine capable of 367 PS. 

A same 3.0liter diesel engine in BMW X7 M50d delivers 405 PS which is quite more than Mercedes, but the whopping price tag of 1.63 crores is also a major difference. 

BMW X7 M50d does a 0-100km/h sprint in brisk 5.4 seconds is much faster than that of 7.8 seconds by 2020 Mercedes GLS. The question arises, will the price bridge, give the Mercedes an edge over BMW for a cheaper and powerful luxury SUV choice???
