Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Suburban than in the BMW X7, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Suburban will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X7.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X7 as you will with the Chevrolet Suburban, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 X7 is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Suburban. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X7 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Suburban.

Dimensions
If you go with the BMW X7, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Suburban.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X7 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Suburban.

Handling
The BMW X7 has the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Suburban, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the BMW X7 will do just as well as the Chevrolet Suburban, since they have about the same towing capacity. The BMW X7 has a little less horsepower than the Chevrolet Suburban.

Utility
The BMW X7 has less seating than the Chevrolet Suburban, making the Chevrolet Suburban the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X7 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Suburban.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X7 than that of the Chevrolet Suburban.
