The BMW 7 Series is one of the most sophisticated cars currently on sale. It’s clear a lot of time and dedication has gone into its development, and it can now be considered a genuine rival to theMercedes S-Class.
It may not be the most rewarding driver’s car, but few models in this segment prioritise sharp handling. Luxury, refinement and technology are areas where these cars are designed to deliver and in that respect the 7 Series excels.

The amount of tech on-board is first rate, while the smooth and relaxing manner in which the 7 covers ground is only matched by the S-Class. Best of all, the 7 Series will influence the next-generation of saloons from BMW, so expect this level of engineering to go into the next 5 Series and 3 Series, too.
