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.

All 7 Series models come well equipped with standard air suspension, 18in alloy wheels (19s on the 750i), adaptive LED headlights, front and rear parking sensors, a surround camera system, four-zone climate control, a powered bootlid, heated leather seats that are electrically adjustable up front, soft close doors, cruise control, wireless phone charging, a 10.25in infotainment system with gesture and voice control, sat nav, a digital instrument cluster and even metallic paint. Long wheelbase models add and electric glass sunroof and an electric roller blind for the rear screen, too.

This 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 packs a sizable 523bhp, enough for sports car-worrying performance. Indeed, it’s barely any slower than the vastly more expensive M760Li on paper. But while many will appreciate the brawny soundtrack, it isn’t the smoothest engine offered. Not available in long wheelbase form.
