The new BMW 7 Series Driving Video
The new BMW 7 Series will again be offered in two body variants, the longer of which translates its extra 14 centimetres of wheelbase into a similar onboard space gain for the rear seat passengers.
The standard 7 Series (5,120 mm) and its long-wheelbase twin (5,260 mm) are both 22 millimetres longer than their respective predecessors.
The new model’s width (1,902 mm) and height (1,467 mm / long-wheelbase version: 1,479 mm) remain unchanged.
The extensive design refresh at the front end – which now rises 50 millimetres taller at its foremost point – plays a particularly prominent role in giving the new BMW 7 Series its more powerful visual presence.
The new bonnet has more sharply cut contour lines and a larger BMW roundel.
The dominant force of the reworked front end is the BMW kidney grille, with its single-piece surround, whose surface area has grown by some 40 per cent.
The grille teams up with the slimmer headlights to create a stylistically appealing contrast and add a new strand to the character of BMW’s luxury-class models.
