Engines And Gearboxes
The diesel engine variants of the new 7-series are powered by a 3-litre, straight-six turbocharged engine producing 265hp @ 4,000rpm and 620Nm of torque@ 2,000-2,500rpm. 0-100km/h takes just 6.1 seconds and the top speed is 250km/h.
The petrol powered 7 series limos are powered by 4.4-litre twin turbo V8 that produces 450hp@ 5,500-6,000rpm and 650 Nm of torque@ 1,800-4,500rpm. 0-100km/h takes just 4.4 seconds and the top speed is limited to 250km/h.
Both variants are available with an 8-speed gearbox.
The new BMW 7-series gets a wider BMW-signature kidney grille with Active Aero function.
The new hood bulges out and that along with redesigned headlamps(which can be specced up to the optional Laserlight headlamps from the i8) give the new 7 series limo a more aggressive look. The rear compliments the front with asymmetrical LED tail lights, the rear exhausts that are integrated into the rear bumper.
The interiors of the car are as inviting as ever, with seats that massage you in multiple ways and BMW's rather cool i-drive system.
Availability and Rivals
The new BMW is available at all BMW dealerships across India and will go up against the Mercedes-Benz S Class and the Audi A8L.
