BMW 7 Series (G11/G12) – Get the Performance You Expect

24.12.2016 г.


BMW 7 Series is considered as the biggest car that this German brand produced. Its long wheelbase version is big, but thanks to familiar BMW proportions, this hides its length well, which gives it as familiar look as the BMW 6 Series Gran Couple. It isn’t also bulky, yet it’s surprisingly good-looking and sleek saloon.
BMW 7 Series revolves around wafting in luxury and it is impeccable in terms of ride comfort. Its predecessor did not ride very well yet there are no issues with this generation. BMW has also ditched dampers and coil springs in favor of what people call air ride.

Its 2-axle self-leveling air suspension system is as standard as before. This just means that BMW 7 Series is smooth even over the roughest surfaces. It also comes with own motorway speeds where lack of road noise as well as its capability to glide effortlessly, which makes this car so relaxing to travel or drive. When it comes to performance, expect the unexpected with BMW 7 Series with mainstay engine. It also provides the power you require with 265PS, yet the 620Nm of torque provides the car a durable in-gear acceleration. It also comes with the xDrive 4-wheel drive for extra security and traction in wintery or wet conditions.

In terms of technology, BMW 7 Series can provide Starship Enterprise an operation for its money for the new iDrive system, which is an enhanced head-up display as well as an exceptional 360 degree camera. You may also remotely park it with the use of the key. Of course, there’s a lot of space inside, especially in the long wheelbase models, even if the long rear doors mean you have to be cautious at regular parking bays that the BMW 7 Series dwarfs. The interior quality of BMW 7 Series is flawless with great attention to every detail and definitely luxury feel.

If there’s only criticism with BMW 7 Series, it would be the steering that feels light as well as overly assisted, even in the sportiest setting. However, it is not a car made to tackle tight corners. What this car does is to offer standard equipment compared to its S-Class rival for the same amount of money, making BMW as one of the best saloons around. The BMW 7 Series’ interior is like Starship Enterprise, yet only with more gizmos and gadgets. If you like a simple way to pass several hours, just begin playing with the different settings and function. Although if you are familiar with some BMWs or old predecessors of BMW 7 Series, this is another level.

The finish quality of BMW 7 Series is exceptional. It’s an inch the luxury car that the BMW bills it as with the quality feel to everything. But, when compared to other cars, it is an inexpensive option, yet that is reflected in the leather finish on the dash doors and top while all switches and buttons are finished in aluminum like the engine start button and door handles.
