This change in dimension works well with the sweeping lines on its profile so that it adds extra expression as well as an emphasis on the perfect balance between the car’s dynamic proportions.

The elegant and expressive profile of the BMW 7-Series can be attributed to its long, broad bonnet where precise contour lines extend, drawing attention to the new BMW kidney grille. The said grille now has a larger chrome surround. This plus the new 9-slat arrangement (instead of 12) gives the car a greater air of importance, reinforcing its presence on the road. Finally, it is marked with the elegant accent strip and the trademark BMW corona rings and accentuated with optional new full-LED headlights, making It unmistakably part of the BMW 7-Series.
