Serving Greenville, SC

Are you trying to decide which beautiful BMW SUV is the perfect fit for you? At Century BMW, our valued customers often debate between the X5 and the X7, and we will happily support you as you compare these impressive models in greater detail. The 2020 BMW X5 is an executive luxury SUV with two rows of seats, and its fourth-generation launched two years ago. The 2020 BMW X7, on the other hand, is a full-size luxury SUV that provides three rows of seats. It debuted in 2018.


Today's SUV shoppers will not be disappointed with the capabilities of either of these two vehicles. They have comparable capabilities thanks to their identical powertrains. The X5 and X7 are equipped with an inline-6 twin-turbo, 3.0-liter engine at their base trim levels, and this powertrain will impress you with 335 horsepower. Both SUVs are outfitted with a V8, 4.4-liter gas engine with X-Drive at the higher trim level. This powertrain produces 456 horsepower. You will have rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive drivetrain options for both models.


When you place the 2020 X5 next to the X7, you will immediately notice their size difference. The smaller X5 shows off a beautiful chrome-on-black color scheme for its signature, segmented grille. Across the lower front fascia, a black air vent with horizontal, metallic trim makes a strong aesthetic point. The smooth surfaces on the hood and sides are broken up by subtle personality lines. In comparison, the X7's large grille is flanked by multi-elemental LED lights that wrap around toward the sides with dramatic flair. Chrome accents across the front, sides, and rear are combined with additional chrome definition on the raised roof rails, dual exhaust tips, and liftgate.


The X5 and X7 are well-equipped vehicles that are decorated with Sensatec upholstery, fine accent materials, and exciting technologies. They share features like heated and powered front seats, Apple CarPlay, a power liftgate, a panoramic moonroof, a premium sound system, Connected Drive, Bluetooth connectivity, and more. The X7 sits higher in the BMW lineup, so it adds a few new technologies, such as a wireless hotspot, wireless charging, a connectivity package, and several other features.

Customer satisfaction is a top priority at Century BMW, and we are excited to help you learn more about the X5 and X7 through a test drive. Connect with us today for further assistance.
