Bmw revealed the 2013 7-Series Facelift, a model that promises to reinforce company’s position as the most innovative sedan in the luxury segment – at least until the 2013 Mercedes-Benz S-Class arrives. What it is to know: the 2013 Bmw 7-Series comes with a new set of headlights fitted with BMW corona rings and a smart accent strip. Moreover, we find a new kidney grille with nine slats (previous model features 12) and a revised front apron. Indicators are not integrated in the lower section of the exterior mirrors, while the rear benefits from a thin chrome strip connecting the two slim reflectors in the rear apron. The interior offers the same top-class materials, redesigned front and passenger leather seats, but also an impressive 1,200-watt Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System with 16 speakers. The optional Rear Seat Entertainment package comes with a new 9.2-inch flatscreen monitor. The multifunctional instrument display behind the steering wheel takes its cues from the driver’s needs. Extended black-panel technology opens up a whole new range of display options through the 10.25-inch screen. Under the hood, the 2013 7-Series offers plenty of choices.
