The X5 also features a power cargo-cover. I believe that is already an option in Europe on the current Q7.

Remote-start aside, you can also use BMW's mobile app to access the 360 degree surround view on your mobile device so you can remotely "look" at your vehicle. BMW has a "road preview"-feature that uses a camera to adjust the suspension based on the road ahead. The Lincoln Aviator will get that, too.
The X7 also has power rear window shades. There is a "display-key" which basically is the BMW-app in a car-key with a display and touch-screen. The LED-illuminated sunroof is cool-looking, too. Gesture control is another new feature.

The rear entertainment system is completely integrated. This is where Audi needs to improve and with the new MMI, I hope they will. On the BMWs, you can get all kinds of system-info on the rear-screens (incl. navigation). The BMWs also have laser-headlights but based on early shots of MY20, the Q7 will get those, too.
I have to say the cargo cover on the Q7 is cumbersome. I always feel like Iím scratching up the plastic to get it fitted. Also headlights that follow curves have been standard in most other cars this price for years. Used to be available on Audis but they dropped them when they went to LED.

Oh, and it's basically confirmed that for MY20, there will be a Plug-in Hybrid X5. Now, THAT's what I would love to see on the Q7, too. That way, Audi could offer a factory remote-starter running on the electric engine, making it legal in Europe, too...

In the grande scheme of things this would be a minor issue for me. Most streets around where I live are pretty straight and well lit. But I could see how it would be a lot more important if you regularly drove dark, rural roads with lots of curves, and deer or other animals to watch out for. But for my situation, if I had to choose one or the other, the automatic "high beam assistant" is more useful.

Not a safety thing for us, the wifey likes it to help keep groceries etc out of the sun..we're in S FL and the summer sun is brutal.

Corgiman is right, even being careful you cant help but scratch the sides...Q8 has a much better design.

If it were me I think I would temporarily minimize the potential damage done by the hot S FL sun by storing groceries in a good cooler, with ice as necessary. Here in Minnesota this time of year we have to worry about the opposite happening, like items that are not supposed to freeze being exposed to prolonged sub-freezing temps. No ice necessary!

Between the 4 zone ac, window blinds and cargo cover it's all good. Was in Minnesota during the winter years back..it was bone chilling

For me itís more about security and hiding whatís in the back.

This is my biggest pet peeve with this car. But the other day I had a new BMW X1 loaner while while my BMW was getting work done, and it had the LED headlights. I dont remember them swirling like my Xenons either. I think LEDs have just started to turn on and off diodes based on your turning angles, versus actually swiveling the whole lamp assembly. So, I think the smoothness of swiveling lights is going away everywhere.
