BMW has updated its current 7 series luxury saloon with a bold and aggressive new look as part of an extensive design overhaul.
The facelift of the 7 Series showcases BMWs new strategy to revamp the interior and exterior design language of its high end models.
The most obvious and up front of the design changes are to the chromed front grille that is now bigger and looks more similar to the grille on the recently launched BMW X7. It extends all the way back into a section of the newly shaped bonnet as well as the front bumper.
In order to further refine the driving experience of its flagship car, BMW has adopted new front wings to improve airflow and reduce drag at higher speeds. The rear wheel arches have also been covered with the new sound-deadening material to get rid of any possible road noise.
Various minor visual changes have been made at the rear with new more densely designed tail-lights, combined with a full-width LED light that goes horizontally across the rear end. The 7 series also comes with newly designed rear bumper and wider chromed tailpipes.
The interior has been upgraded in a more subtle fashion. A lot of improvements have been made to the materials used on the seats, doors and the dashboard but the best thing is the new technology and connectivity options inside the car.
The 2019 7-series carries on with turbocharged petrol and diesel models as well as a petrol-electric hybrid model with combinations of rear-wheel and four-wheel drive depending on the model you choose.
The popular petrol models consist of the 750i xDrive and 750Li xDrive with a 4.4-litre V8 producing 523bhp. Moving upward is the M760Li xDrive that is powered by a BMW M 6.6-litre V12 engine producing a whooping 577bhp. This powerful engine is enough to get the 2000kg top of the range 7 series from 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds.
Internationally, an upgraded electric hybrid variant of the 7 series, called the 745Le xDrive is also available with rear-wheel drive and a 3.0-litre six cylinder petrol engine combined with an electric motor. The hybrid produces up to 388bhp and 0-62mph in 5.2 seconds.
The new 7 series is clearly inspired by the X7 design language and stand next to it at the top of BMW’s range. The design similarity between both the cars is an attempt by BMW to make a connection between both flagship models and make them stand out from the rest of the BMW range.
The cars are made for the high profile customers from all over the world who appreciate luxury and like to live their life in the fast lane.
