Expect the 2013 BMW 7-series to get several new features, which include new engines and a new standard transmission as well as an updated styling. The new generation’s exterior has a set of LED headlights, a new front apron and revised nine-slat kidney grille. Completing the look is a thin chrome strip that connects the two slim reflectors on the rear apron of the car.
The interior has received a series of updates like new leather seats where passengers could get comfortable as they watch their movies on the all-new 9.2-inch flat screen monitor that’s featured in the rear seat entertainment package. 3D graphics were built onto the instrument display at the back of the steering wheel.
It features a 1,200-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system, which has no less than 16 speakers. The 12-cylinder twin turbo engine is the most powerful option available on the 7 Series. It can produce 544hp, enabling the car to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 4.6 seconds. At the other end, BMW has modified its TwinPower turbo six-cylinder for the 7 Series, which delivers 320hp. BMW also offers the M line performance diesel engine, which delivers 381hp and is linked to BMW’s X drive all wheel drive setup.
Each engine is offered as standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The tech buff will simply adore the latest 7 Series for its BMW night vision, dynamic light spot with pedestrian recognition, anti-dazzle LEDs, start/stop engine function, adaptive cruise control and automatic fatigue recognition.
Its hardware is improved with an operating system that’s more powerful to make sure that it could be driven smoothly. The starting price for the 2013 BMW 7-series is $74,195 for the regular-wheelbase 740i, which is over $2,000 higher than last year’s model. The top-of-the-line variant is the long-wheelbase 760Li, which costs $140,200.
