THE EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR OF THE BMW 7 SERIES SEDAN
A special form of radiant power: the BMW 7 Series Sedan is powerful and resolute. The focused headlights and the impressive combined double kidney grille form the status-conscious front and underline the distinctive character of the vehicle at first sight. From the front air vents, via the Air Breather, through to the rear, the result is a flowing line within the design. The BMW 7 Series Sedan thus simultaneously appears both elongated and elegant. Inside, the BMW 7 Series Sedan radiates clarity and high quality. The interior in luxurious leather and the multimodal operating concept underline its first-class aesthetics and unique comfort. In addition, the Ambient Light gives the interior a unique atmosphere and ideally rounds off the harmonious design concept.
The front apron with large BMW kidney grille ensures a strong presence on the road. In addition, the lower air intakes are framed by dynamically designed Air Blades, which optimise the aerodynamics of the vehicle and emphasise the sporty-elegant character of the saloon.
In speed-dependent laser high-beam mode, BMW Laserlight illuminates a range that is nearly twice as far as other headlights, increasing safety through improved visibility. Blue accents and "BMW Laser" lettering visually indicate the technology. This equipment includes Adaptive headlights and BMW Selective Beam (dazzle-free High-beam assistant).
The Air Breather underlines the sporty-elegant character of the vehicle and ensures optimum airflow in the wheel arch area. Together with the front apron and the large BMW kidney grille, the saloon shows a strong presence on the road.
The newly designed rear apron, the narrow reflectors and the trapezoidal tailpipe trims placed far to the outside make the rear appear wide and present. The flat LED rear lights and the narrow light strip between the lighting units also emphasise the wide-ranging effect of the saloon.
LED rear lights with light strip
The two-part LED rear lights have rear light, brake light, reversing light, rear fog lamp and direction indicator in LED technology. The reflectors are integrated into the left and right bumper segments. A narrow light strip between the lighting units emphasises the width of the vehicle.
Panorama glass roof
When open, the Panorama glass roof provides a great deal of fresh air. Closed, it creates a bright, light-flooded atmosphere in the interior. It opens and closes completely automatically at the push of a button or with the car key, and is equipped with slide and lift functions, roller sunblind and wind deflector.

Stainless steel loading sill
The wide stainless steel loading sill sets an elegant accent and additionally enhances the luggage compartment.
The Executive Lounge offers the highest degree of comfort and the best all-round view for the rear passenger on the front passenger side. The seat features a massage function and various adjustment possibilities that make travelling extremely relaxing. It provides maximum leg room and features a footrest on the back of the front passenger backrest, creating a comfortable resting position.

LUXURY AND COMFORT
Massage function for rear-seat passengers
Rear-seat passengers can choose between eight different massage functions in the backrest and seat surface in order to stimulate or relax muscles in a targeted manner, leading to less pressure on the spinal discs. These massage programmes can be set to one of three intensity levels. The eight programmes are divided into the categories mobilisation, relaxation and vitalisation. The mobilisation function not only massages individual body parts such as the pelvis or the upper back, but also the entire body. The spinal column is also relieved with the help of specified active exercises. The back, shoulders and lumbar region are gently massaged by the relaxation function. The vitalisation function leads to a noticeable relaxation and invigoration of the body, which is particularly beneficial on long journeys. The rear-seat entertainment monitor displays an animated training programme (Vitality Programme) in synch with the massage actuators. The entire range of programmes and functions is controlled via the BMW Touch Command for the rear-seat entertainment system.
Rear Seat Entertainment
Rear-seat entertainment Professional provides excellent entertainment for rear passengers thanks to two separate high-resolution colour displays.
Ambient air package image
At the push of a button, the Ambient Air Package fills the interior of the car with a subtle, pleasant fragrance. Eight fragrances, belonging to four themes, are available, all specially composed for the vehicle. Two can be used alternately in the vehicle at a time. The intensity of the fragrance can be set to three levels. This function can be activated via the iDrive Controller and the iDrive menu, or directly via a button on the air conditioning control unit. The function is shown on the Control Display.
When it is dark outside, Ambient light creates a relaxed, cosy lighting atmosphere in the interior. The Welcome Light Carpet, a part of the Ambient light equipment, illuminates the area in front of the car doors when entering and exiting.
A NEW LEVEL OF EFFICIENCY AND DYNAMICS
THE ENGINES OF THE BMW 7 SERIES SEDAN
Top performance comes in many forms – this is why the BMW 7 Series Sedan provides a spectrum of engines. In addition to the BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder power unit, the mighty V12 engines stand out from the crowd in record time. As a plug-in hybrid, the vehicle is also extremely efficient. The interplay between the 6-cylinder engine, the electric drive and the high-voltage battery of the latest generation results in maximum performance accompanied by improved consumption values. Thanks to the innovative BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system, the BMW 7 Series Sedan brings its power onto the road under all conditions – dynamically and authoritatively.
BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine
Commanding power, silky-smooth running and a stirring sound are the hallmarks of the BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine from the latest generation of the BMW EfficientDynamics engine range. With Double-VANOS, Valvetronic, High-Precision Injection and a TwinScroll turbocharger, it generates 250 kW (340 hp) and has an average combined fuel consumption rate of 7.5 litres per 100 km.
BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder diesel engine
The BMW Twin Power Turbo engines offer the greatest possible dynamic performance with the highest efficiency thanks to the latest injection systems, variable output control and sophisticated turbocharger technology. Whether diesel or petrol, and no matter how many cylinders, the engines from the BMW Efficient Dynamics engine family allow markedly more agile power delivery and outstanding responsiveness even at low rpm, while being fuel efficient and low in emissions.
M Performance TwinPower Turbo 12-cylinder petrol engine
The M Performance TwinPower Turbo 12-cylinder petrol engine represents drive competence in perfection. The top-of-the-range engine is characterised by superior power delivery and unique running smoothness that can only be achieved with a V12 engine. This character ensures an incomparable driving and travel experience.
Future-oriented driving experience: The central component of the drive train in the hybrid transmission is the electric motor. Within the scope of the hybrid functions and in addition to the 6-cylinder petrol engine the e-drive ensures comfortable, pure electric driving up to 140 km/h. When braking and coasting, the e-drive converts the braking energy into electric energy and stores this in the high-voltage battery. The ideal combination of efficiency and agility.
