Flagship BMW's among most sophisticated cars

BMW’S flagship models in the luxury segment are among the most sophisticated cars.

The Munich concern has just released details of the new edition of the BMW 7 Series, and heralds its confident presence, sophisticated elegance, and innovative control/operation, driver assistance, and connectivity technology.

BMW says that the new exterior of the luxury sedan showcases its prestigious status.

The new version of the BMW-7 series.

The interior has sumptuous leather trim, with extended quilting and optimised acoustic comfort, not to mention the digital display grouping of instrument cluster and control display, the BMW operating system 7.0, and the BMW intelligent personal assistant, which they claim set new benchmarks in comfort.

The line-up of power units for the new BMW 7 Series has also been updated and includes a new, eight-cylinder engine, a six-cylinder in-line unit and plug-in hybrid systems offering extended electric range. All model variants already meet the stipulations of the Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard.

And the driver assistance systems now have a broader range of functionality. The latest advances towards automated driving are highlighted by the new reversing assistant.

The new BMW 7 Series will again be offered in two body variants, the longer of which translates its extra 14 centimetres of wheelbase into a similar on-board space gain for the rear-seat passengers.

The new model’s width (1,902mm) and height (1,467mm/long-wheelbase version: 1,479 mm) remain unchanged. The extensive design refresh at the front end — which now rises 50 millimetres taller at its foremost point — plays a particularly prominent role in giving the new BMW 7 Series its more powerful visual presence.

We will have more details in due course.
