    We are in the market for a *luxury* SUV... the business is going to buy it.
    If you are looking for luxury, serious reconsider the new navigator. Its pretty damn luxurious. If i had the money i would have went with that over the yukon denali. The reality here is, if you are looking to seat 7 adults, you are not getting many of the ones mentioned here. You need a true SUV (body on frame or minivan haha) to get the size you are looking for. We drove everything save the tesla and nothing would work for us.

    To answer the question directly, of the two, X7.

    Escalade ESV is another big vehicle. Of course the other obvious option here if space is a absolute requirement is x2 Porsche Panamera...

    Does the purchase price of this to the business count towards your investor visa? interesting.

    Had an Escalade when they redesigned it. Liked it but didn’t love it. Also the service side of things really rubbed me the wrong way. Being a GM product they treated you like a pleb when you brought it in for any work.

    Again, I would like the lincon but my better half does not.

    BMW gallery just got a X7 in yesterday - will go check it out today at 10.

    If luxury is what you're looking for, I'd skip the Model X. It's a minimalist high techy interior.

    Another option is the new GLE which is almost as big as the outgoing GLS and now has 3rd row option. A little less legroom than the GLS 3rd row which is already tight as fuck to begin with. Honestly, the only way you'll shuttle adults comfortably in the 3rd row is a minivan TBH. The 3rd row is 100% designed for pre-teen kids.

    I really like the new GLE and I hate SUVs. The new interior is beyond S-Class (until S-Class gets upgraded), and the rear seats being fully electronically adjusted is just the shit. If you're looking at S class amenities, you really should check out the GLE. Fully voice controlled MBUX, 3rd gen self driving tech, it's all the latest toys MB has to offer stuffed into it. The GLS is still another year away if you absolutely need the bigger size and should have all the same toys, while the GLE is available now.

    Negative, putting this through the business is a good way to build credit.

    For the visa to work you have to have a capital investment - aka no debt on the items you’re bringing down / straight cash.

    Electronic adjustable rear seats like the front seats. Was told that's a first in a SUV. Not sure if that's true or not. Can adjust front, back, tilt and headrest. Pulls forward for 3rd row access, and can flip down 40/20/40 for storage. Pretty cool.

    So mostly, it's a car for you two and occasional family in 2nd and 3rd rows? That would have been helpful info.
    Very interesting info.

    If you are actually going to transport people I still vote for full size SUV.

    Sounds to me you are far more interested in what badge is on the front though. Because a Lincoln would definitely be equally luxurious, if not more so.

    This is the main reason why we won’t choose GLS63 right now

    Lexus IS far to Asian looking for my liking... plus it’s not luxurious enough in my books.

    9 year old interior lol.

    Yea, the GLS will be next year for base, and the year after for the 63. 2 year wait.

    But if you have to pick one of the bimmer or tesla I would go tesla. That new grille on the x7 is absolutely hideous.

    If strictly between the two I'd take the X7, because the Tesla is fuggly plus quality issues.

    I checked the curb weight for both expecting the Model X to weigh slightly less than the moon and was surprised to see it's only ~100lbs heavier than the X7

    The model X is hideous and notoriously unreliable, but it's pretty funny watching it win drag races towing a boat haha.
