The BMW 7 Series isn’t merely a car, it is a technical tour de force. From its relatively lightweight but impressively strong construction, to innovative features such as gesture control, which lets you operate the infotainment system using swooping hand signals, it seems BMW has thrown everything at this car in a bid to amaze.

In 730d diesel form – likely to be the biggest selling version – it is impressively clean and frugal, and a car that is better to drive down a twisting B-road than many of its rivals. There’s also a higher-powered diesel, a V8 petrol, a plug-in hybrid version and even a thundering V12.

Yet there is a thorn in its side: the Mercedes-Benz S Class. This has always overshadowed the 7 Series in the luxury car standings, so is that still the case? And with other rivals such as the Audi A8 in the mix, as well as SUVs including the Range Rover, is the 7 Series the luxury car of choice?

Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions, and to find out how it competes with its rivals.
