Tires and Wheels

The Range Rover offers an optional full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the X7, it requires you to depend on a temporary spare or run-flat tires, either of which has mileage and speed limitations.

Suspension and Handling

The Range Rover’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The X7 doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

Cargo Capacity

The Range Rover SVAutobiography’s optional sliding cargo floor makes loading and unloading cargo easier and safer. The X7 doesn’t offer a sliding load floor.

To make loading groceries and cargo easier when your hands are full, the Range Rover’s tailgate can be opened and closed just by waving your foot, leaving your hands completely free. The X7 doesn’t offer a hands-free gesture to open its tailgate, forcing you to put cargo down if your hands are full.

Towing

The Range Rover’s standard towing capacity is much higher than the X7’s (7716 vs. 7500 pounds).

Ergonomics

To better shield the driver and front passenger’s vision, the Range Rover has standard dual-element sun visors that can block glare from two directions simultaneously. The X7 doesn’t offer secondary sun visors.

The Range Rover offers an optional 115-volt a/c outlet on the center console, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The X7 doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.
