Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW i7 than the Volkswagen Arteon. The BMW i7 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Arteon.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The BMW i7 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Arteon, which has a much lower MSRP.

Dimensions
Since the BMW i7 is much wider than the Volkswagen Arteon, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW i7, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Arteon.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW i7 has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Arteon. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The BMW i7 has much less torque than the Volkswagen Arteon, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW i7 and the Volkswagen Arteon.
