BMW 7 Series Overview
Though comfortable and laden with technology, the 7 Series isn't the crisp, sporty luxury car it once was. Handling lacks agility, and the long-wheelbase 750Li we tested didn't shine at its limits. The ride is steady and supple but not that cushy. The turbocharged V8 is smooth, refined, and punchy. Many controls are complex and frustrating to use. On the plus side, the roomy cabin is super-quiet and impeccably finished, and seat comfort is stellar. All-wheel drive is available, as are hybrid, six- and twelve-cylinder versions, and a new 255-hp diesel model with standard all-wheel drive. Reliability has been average but the 7 Series scored too low in our tests to recommend. The Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class outshine the BMW.
