The BMW 7 Series. Serving as the flagship for one of the most innovative and recognized luxury car manufacturers, the 7er represents the best of what BMW has to offer, with respect to luxury. And if you’ve come across a brochure of the latest iteration, it proudly boasts a tonne of new equipment as well as upgrades that will drop jaws.
The new 7 Series in its M-Sport guise is not exactly a looker. To best describe the 7 Series M-Sport, it’s like donning an expensive 3-piece suit, but with running shoes, Oakley goggles cricketers usually wear and a baseball cap. We’d recommend the 7 Series in the ‘Design Pure Excellence Signature’ trim, as it bears a more regal impression and is INR 3 Lakhs less expensive.
From a design standpoint, the new 7er’s exterior looks instantly familiar yet made contemporary with new detailing and restyled elements. The characteristic pair of kidney grilles are probably the biggest ever fitted to a BMW and feature active ducts that shut the grille to lower drag.
The exterior detailing is now busier than before. For instance, there is a chrome hockey stick-shaped element stretching from the vents in the front fender all the way through the rear wheel arch, accentuating the 7er’s sheer length. Even the laser headlamps are intricately detailed and look like a piece of art.
The 7er has a new Driving Experience Control with ECO PRO, Comfort, Sport, Adaptive and Individual, which adjusts the steering, suspension, engine, gearbox and the HVAC system. In ECO PRO mode, the engine is relaxed, silent and sips fuel, while the gearbox lazily shifts at low rpms and cabin circulation feature is turned off. Seeing the overall mileage increase and the amount of kilometers gained in the ECO PRO is encouraging enough to drive it with a light foot.
Also the BMW Display key it is included with the specific car.A a small touchscreen that displays information, lets you pre-cool the cabin and acts as a remote for Parking Assistant!
