BMW X6 vs X7 Size & Dimensions Comparison

If you guessed that, being the biggest number in the BMW Sports Activity Vehicle lineup, the 2020 BMW X7 is also the biggest SUV that BMW makes, you'd be right. But, perhaps counter-intuitively, the 2020 BMW X6 is not the second-biggest SAV. The BMW X6 is actually derived from the midsize BMW X5 with a sloping coupe-like roofline for a sleeker, more aggressive appearance. As a result, there's a bit less cargo space inside the BMW X6 compared to the BMW X5, and you can't get an optional third row of seats as you can in the BMW X5. The 2020 BMW X6 gives you five comfortable seats and up to 59.7 cubic feet of cargo space. For transporting bigger families in total comfort and style, the 2020 BMW X7 provides up to seven seats and as much as 90.4 cubic feet of cargo space.

BMW X6 vs X7 Comfort Differences

At this price point, you expect a sumptuous interior with all the latest technology, and BMW delivers nothing less. Both these Sports Activity Vehicles provide the latest iDrive infotainment system with Apple CarPlay™ for your iPhone and the Live Cockpit Professional digital gauge cluster. Taking your place at the helm of either of these cars puts you in command of an ultra-modern, high-performance SAV.

2020 BMW X6 vs 2020 BMW X7 Interior

That said, there are some key feature differences to be aware of. Inside the 2020 BMW X6, standard Vernasca leather provides a premium, upmarket look and feel. Vernasca leather and Merino leather are available on the 2020 BMW X7 as options, but durable and soft-touch Sensatec leatherette upholstery comes standard.

On the 2020 BMW X7, you get family-friendly standard features like four-zone automatic climate control so everyone can set their own temperature, a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, Qi-compatible wireless phone charging and built-in SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. All these features are also available on the 2020 BMW X6 as additional options.

BMW X6 vs X7 Performance Differences

The 2020 BMW X6 offers a pair of engines to choose from, and those same engines can also be found under the hood of the 2020 BMW X7. As a third option, the 2020 BMW X7 offers another option that fits right in the middle.

At the entry level, a turbocharged inline six provides both these SAVs with 335 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. But, because it's lighter, the 2020 BMW X6 sDrive40i is quicker, zipping from 0-60 MPH in just 5.2 seconds. The 2020 BMW X7 xDrive40i is plenty fast in its own right, making the run in 5.8 seconds.

2020 BMW X6 vs 2020 BMW X7 Features

If you want a family SUV that provides the acceleration of a true sports car, step up to the M-Performance editions of these vehicles. Equipped with a 523 horsepower, twin-turbocharged V8, the 2020 BMW X6 M50i goes from 0-60 MPH in a mere 4.1 seconds. The 2020 BMW X7 M50i will do the same in 4.5 seconds. In the middle, the 2020 BMW X7 xDrive50i provides 456 horsepower if you want a drive that's not to hot, not too cold, but just right.

For a more refined ride, the 2020 BMW X7 also comes standard with a self-leveling air suspension as well as xDrive all-wheel drive for all-weather confidence. These features are also available on the 2020 BMW X6, but they'll cost you a bit more as optional extras.
