German automaker BMW understands how to make a luxury vehicle. They have 10 model series of cars all designed to give you the most indulgent ride of your life. In particular, the BMW 7 Series sedan is at the forefront of performance, luxury, design, and technology. Let’s take a look at why the 2017 BMW 7 Series is worth your hard-earned money.
The 2017 BMW 7 Series is available in four different models. The entry-level 740i, along with the upgraded 750i, come standard with rear-wheel drive and have available all-wheel drive. The difference between the two is in the engine. The 740i packs a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine while the 750i comes with a beefier 4.4-liter TwinPower V8 engine. The top of the line M760i boasts a mighty 6.6-liter BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo V12 motor with standard all-wheel drive. Lastly, the 740e iPerformance model is a hybrid car with all-wheel drive. It possesses a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline four-cylinder engine along with an integrated electrical motor to maximize fuel economy. Altogether this leaves you with six unique configurations from which to choose. The base model 740i starts at MSRP $83,100.
Interior and Exterior
You get BMW’s finest interior design and materials if you choose the 7 Series. Dakota leather lines the interior of the 740i and 740i ePerformance models, while upgrading past that gets you the luxurious Nappa leather. The front seats are 14-way power adjustable as well. Also, all models give you the choice of several exciting trims like Chestnut Wood, Fineline Wood, and Oak. On the outside, the 2017 7 Series features up to six attractive wheel options depending on which model you choose. The 18-inch light alloy V-Spoke wheels are standard, but you can upgrade all the way the 20-inch alloy wheels on the base 740i. Also standard are adaptive LED headlights, power-folding heated side mirrors, and automatic high beams.
The 2017 BMW 7 Series comes with advanced technological features. The highlight is BMW’s Display Key. This iPhone-like device makes you feel like James Bond as the touch screen displays fuel levels, mileage range, and can let you remote control park your 7 Series. Inside the 7 Series is BMW’s Gesture Control. Wave your hands in defined motions in front of the center console and you have control over making phone calls, adjusting volume, and starting navigation. Additionally, BMW’s Touch Command offers more tactile control with a 7-inch tablet that controls functions such as ambient lighting, entertainment options, and climate control.
The technology of the 7 Series extends to the safety features as well. Standard on your 7 Series is a BMW’s Active Protection System. This sensor detects unavoidable collisions and prepares your vehicle by pre-tensioning safety belts, closing windows, and engaging post-crash braking. Dual-stage deployed air bags and a front and rear Head Protection System keep you and your passengers protected when you need it most.
If you’re looking for a luxury sedan then go for the very best in class. The 2017 BMW 7 Series has all the features you want, and goes the extra mile to impress with features you didn’t know wanted until you see them.
