Review

The 7 Series remains a worthy contender in this segment and does handle a little more sharply than direct rivals. However, its ride isn’t quite as cushioned as the very best luxury limos.

Trim: 7 SERIES

Engine: 745e

This plug-in hybrid combines a 3.0-litre straight-six with a big battery pack and an electric motor. Combined output is 389bhp, giving strong performance and it’ll run for up to 36 miles on electricity alone. Refinement is excellent whatever mode you’re in, and it switches between the two smoothly.
