The 7 Series is a superb vehicle. In BMW's lineup, this super luxury car represents the best seats in the house. The 7 Series is stately, sumptuous and serene. Its long-wheelbase body style yields more rear-seat legroom than rivals and the cabin is brimming with top-notch materials and high-tech features. BMW 7 Series fuses a luxurious cabin with relatively lively performance.
The 7 Series has five seats in its standard configuration. Some upgrades eliminate the back row's middle seat, reducing capacity to four. The front seats are spacious, comfortable and come standard with heat and 20-way power adjustments. There are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors for the 7 Series’ rear outboard seats. With 18.2 cubic feet of cargo room, the 7 Series has an excellent amount of trunk space for a full-size luxury car. It's convenient, with a standard hands-free power trunk lid and a pass-through for longer items. Because of its lithium-ion battery pack, the plug-in-hybrid 745e has a smaller 14.8-cubic-foot trunk.
The standard adaptive suspension in the 7 Series artfully absorbs imperfections in the road for a ride that is silky smooth. This large sedan is surprisingly responsive and agile for its size. The base trim comes standard with rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive is standard in all other models. The 740i has one of the best fuel economy ratings in the super luxury car class, earning 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. Those numbers drop to 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with the 750i. When its lithium-ion battery pack is fully charged, it can drive about 16 miles on all-electric power and gets 56 MPGe and 22 mpg combined city/highway.
