BMW has unveiled their latest-generation 7-Series. The 2019 BMW 7-Series comes with a number of updates to its exteriors and interiors and also comes packed with a long list of additional features and equipment.
Similar to the previous models, the new BMW 7-Series will be available in both; a standard wheelbase and a long wheelbase variant. Both variants have been extended by 22mm, taking their overall length to 5,120mm and 5,260mm, respectively.
In terms of design, one of the prominent updates is in the form of the large signature kidney grille, seemingly borrowed from the brand's X7 SUV. The new chromed grille is said to be 40 per cent larger than the old one.
Flanking the large grille is a set of redesigned adaptive LED headlights which come as standard. BMW also offers its Laser LED headlight technology as an optional feature as well. Apart from the this, the bonnet and the front fenders have also been redesigned to provide a more muscular look to the overall front fascia of the sedan.
The front bumper has also been given a refreshed styling with air ducts and bits of chrome accents, further accentuating its looks.
The rear profile of the new 7-Series, however, gets subtle changes. This includes a slimmer, yet heavily structured OLED taillights with 3D graphics. The set of tail lights on either side are connected by a single full-LED strip running across the length of the boot lid. This LED tail band works in combination with the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) at the front.
Apart from this, the 2019 BMW 7-Series also comes with wider chrome tailpipes integrated with the redesigned rear bumper. The 7-Series flagship sedan also features newly designed allow wheels as well.
Moving Inside, the new 7-Series features BMW's latest-generation digital instrument cluster, the same as seen on both the 8-Series and the new X5. The 7-Series also comes with a central 7.0-inch infotainment display with all the latest features and technologies including voice inputs and other others. The rear passengers also get 10-inch high-definition screens with a blue-ray player.
The seats on the 2019 BMW 7-Series are offered in premium Nappa leather upholstery. BMW offers a wide range of leather colours, as well as an extended range of quilting options.
The new BMW 7-Series comes in a range of variants. The petrol variants include a 750i xDrive, 750Li xDrive and the range-topping M760Li xDrive. The diesel variants, on the other hand, include a 730d, 730d xDrive, 730Ld, 730Ld xDrive, 740d xDrive, 740Ld xDrive. Then, there is also the range-topping diesel variants, in the form of the 750d and 750Ld (again with their all-wheel-drive ‘xDrive' variants).
The petrol options — a 4.4-litre V8 producing 523bhp and 750Nm of torque. This engine is available on the 750i xDrive and 750Li xDrive variants. The top-spec M760Li xDrive features a more powerful 6.6-litre V12 engine producing 577bhp and a massive 849Nm of torque.
The diesel options — a single 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine with varying turbochargers and different states-of-tune. All the 730d and 730Ld models get a single-turbo churning out 260bhp and 620Nm of torque. The 740d and 740Ld versions, on the other hand, receive twin-turbocharged units producing 316bhp and 680Nm of torque. The range-topping 750d and 750Ld versions come with quad-turbochargers with a maximum power output of 393bhp and 760Nm of peak torque.
Not over yet! Apart from the standard petrol and diesel engine options, BMW also offers the 7-Series in a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. These include the 745e, 745Le and the four-wheel-drive 745Le xDrive. The plug-in hybrid variant is powered by an inline 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine mated to an electric motor. The combined power output comes to 338bhp and 599Nm of peak torque.
The new BMW 7-Series facelift features adaptive suspension with electronically controlled dampers and air springs. BMW also offers the 7-Series with the optional rear-wheel steering as well.
Thoughts On The New 2019 BMW 7-Series
The new BMW 7-Series facelift comes with a host of features and updates, both to its exterior and interiors. It also comes with a refreshed design inspired by their X7 flagship SUV. Once introduced in the market, the BMW 7-Series will rival the likes of the Audi A8 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
