BMW has redefined what it means to have a luxurious driving experience in a contemporary form with the release of the 2016 BMW 7-Series. This new series from BMW incorporates different groundbreaking technologies in different areas like chassis, intelligent connectivity, interior ambience, lightweight design, operating systems, and powertrains. All these combine to give the new series a unique driving pleasure and the long-distance driving comfort expected in a luxury sedan.
The passing of the torch from one generation series to another demonstrates how the brand is introducing innovations that remain unrivaled. The main factors in the 2016 BMW 7-Series that enable it to enhance features like comfort, dynamics, efficiency, and safety while driving include: an engine from the new generation power units; the carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic used for the body structure; the plug-in hybrid system of the BMW 740e; the Driving Experience Control switch that has an ADAPTIVE mode with BMW Laserlight; and chassis system with the Executive Drive Proactive.
The rear compartment on the other hand is maximized through these different elements: Sky Lounge Panorama glass roof; Ambient highlight; Welcome Light Carpet; an Executive Lounge that has a massage function and Vitality Programme; and smartphone holder that allows for inductive charging. The innovations do not stop there. The brand’s driver assistance technology and operating system has: the iDrive system with touch display and BMW gesture control and Toch Command; BMW Head-Up Display; crossing traffic warning; active side collision protection; steering and lane control assistant; a Surround View that allows a 3D View; and Remote Control Parking system.
All these make the 2016 BMW 7-Series the standard when it comes to luxury performance while providing the highest level when it comes to driving refinement for the premium car class. This new series from BMW is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms during the fall of 2015. The BMW 740i is priced at $81,300 while the BMW 750i xDrive starts at $97,400. Both prices do not include Destination and handling however.
Looking at the design, the BMW 7-Series gives a genuine platform that shows the character of the car. It can be observed that there is indeed good dynamics and high-class elegance through the harmonious proportions that have precise line points and amazing controlled surface design. The balance between long-distance driving comfort and pleasure is obviously expressed in the aura of a luxury sedan and is made available in standard and long wheelbase series variants.
Other important features of the interior of the BMW 7-Series include lavish levels of space highlighted by horizontal lines and surfaces. There is also a cockpit design that is driver-focused and has a very sophisticated functionality when it comes to display and control elements. Finally there is the fusion of precision craftsmanship as well as the use of exquisite materials. The M Sport package will be made available when the BMW 7-series is launched.
This underscores the dynamic ability of the car and its luxurious ambience with exclusive elegance to great effect. It comes as no surprise then that the BMW is always able to satisfy the different expectations of customers from around the world.
