About BMW 7 Series
The full-size luxury-sedan class is rampant with high expectations. But BMW’s 7-series only partially meets them, serving up a comfortable, quiet ride but no distinguishing features or character to set it apart from its rivals. In designing the 7-series, BMW crafted sophisticated looks but left behind its reputation for excellent sporting sedans. At least the turbocharged inline-six, twin-turbo V-8, and twin-turbo V-12 engines that are available in the 7-series live up to the brand’s sparkling mechanical reputation. Even the 740e plug-in hybrid’s powertrain is well executed. Engines aside, the 7-series is luxurious but unremarkable.
