Confident, sophisticated and elegant—that’s how the new and improved BMW 7 series can be described in a nutshell. 

The German marque’s luxury sedan has been given a comprehensive upgrade to both its exterior and interior in addition to an enhanced ergonomic set-up and a new operating system that transforms it into the epitome of comfort and style on the move.

In Singapore, the new BMW 7 Series is offered in the long-wheelbase body variant that promises its occupants the utmost luxury and space all while keeping to the original height and width.

1. An aggressive but elegant exterior revamp

The redesign aims to highlight and accentuate the German automaker’s most luxurious model by improving all aspects of the car—including the front apron, bonnet, headlights, front side panels, rear bumper trim and rear lights.

The first thing you will notice is the taller front of the car which rises around 50 mm taller at the foremost part. The stately front is complemented with the all-new BMW kidney grille which has grown by 40 per cent and features high-gloss chrome bars. Active air flaps control the vanes of the grille when the need for cooling air is increased. 

The lower section of the front apron now features outer air intakes that are overlaid with large air deflectors. The newly designed chrome strips give the sedan an elegant visual impact.

L-shaped trim strips then border the air curtains on their outer edges. Another pearl-effect chrome trim strip then runs along the lower edge of the central air intake and forms the top line of the side plates.

Finally, the rear is also fitted with sophisticated three-dimensional LED rear lights that are around 35 mm slimmer with tailpipes that are edged in wide chrome surrounds.

2. An incomparable petrol engine and electric range

As eco-friendly vehicles are now becoming the norm, automakers are consistently pushing boundaries when it comes to increasing the performance and lowering the fuel consumption of their vehicles. 

The new BMW 7 Series comes with petrol engines that use four and six cylinders, as well as a plug-in hybrid drive system that offers drivers an increased electric range, better performance and overall lower fuel consumption.

All the engines are also fitted with the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology which features twin-scroll turbochargers, high precision injection, valvetronic fully variable valve timing and double-vanos variable camshaft control.

3. An all new operating system and heads up display

The new BMW Operating System 7.0 display and control concept feature all-digital displays that are geared closely to the needs of drivers; the system provides drivers with immediate access to all the information they could possibly need.

If you have been following the developments of BMW’s line of cars, you would also know that they have steadily been making improvements to their Head-Up Display which projects information graphics onto the windscreen to allow drivers to focus on the road. The system allows drivers to access vehicle speed, speed limits and overtaking restrictions, control messages, status indicators and warnings from other assistance systems, detailed turn instructions, plus phone and entertainment lists.

The Personal Assistant feature is all about enhancing the driver’s level of comfort as it helps with adjusting the air-con, initiating a seat massage, or even turning on some pumping music to help drivers feel more alert. It can also help inform drivers of important logistical details such as when they need to refuel or change their oil.
