The 7 Series is BMW's flagship car and is only available as a sedan or extended-length limousine. It traditionally introduces technologies and exterior design themes before they trickle down to smaller sedans in BMW's lineup.

The first generation 7 Series was powered by straight-6 petrol engines, and following generations have been powered by straight-6, V8 and V12 engines with both natural aspiration and turbocharging. Since 1995, diesel engines have been included in the 7 Series range.

All versions of the 7 Series use a new eight-speed automatic transmission. Borrowing technology from sister company Rolls-Royce, the eight-speed employs a new GPS system that can detect the terrain ahead and adjust the gearbox accordingly.

Exterior

This new BMW 7 Series sports an evolutionary design and retains the same overall shape as the outgoing model. The change is the laser headlights, larger signature kidney grille and new bumpers. There is also a large dome on the hood which adds to the muscle image as well as increased pedestrian safety.

The side profile shows us flared wheel arches and rear heavy roof line. There is a strong shoulder line while the entire window section gets a chrome outline. At the rear, we can see the familiar wrap around tail lamps, thick bumper and chrome line running through the center of the rear section.

Interior

Like the exterior, the cabin of this new 7 Series is an evolutionary design and retains the same layout as the outgoing model. The cabin has been trimmed out in a combination of black and beige with wood inserts in the doors and dashboard. Photos also reveal that the car can be trimmed out in other materials but the black bits and wood inserts remain common throughout.

In addition to the standard luxury features already available with this car, it also gets a new touchscreen infotainment system with gesture control. The instrument cluster is a fully digital unit but has a smaller screen than the i Drive. Also included in the deal is a full-fledged rear-entertainment package with screens that double up as tablets and can be used to control the various functions of the car. Taking a cue out of its closest rival’s book, the new 7 Series is being offered with a rear executive package which includes a fold out table, additional cup holders and the above mentioned tablets.

Engine and gearbox

The 7 Series in India is expected to be offered in the 730Ld and 740Ld states of tune. Both are powered by a 3.0-litre straight-six diesel mills that produces 258bhp and 300bhp respectively. It will be offered in RWD format and mated to an eight-speed AT. Further, we believe that the company will offer a single petrol variant in the form of the 7 Series 750Li which is powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 407bhp. We also believe that the top-of-the line 760Li will be brought to India next year once it has made its European debut.

Price and competition

The 7 Series is gud to be priced in the range of It competes with the Jaguar XJ L, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Audi A8 L.
