The 7-Series comes loaded with the latest safety features

Safety and After Sales Service – The 7-Series gets the latest in safety tech including 8 airbags and other active and passive features. The rock-solid high-speed ride, confident cornering manners and impeccable build quality also add to the safety factor indirectly. Being a luxury saloon, expect great service and reasonable long-term reliability.

The 7-Series is one of the best driving luxury sedans in the market

Verdict – The updated BMW 7-Series is more than just those large grilles. You’ll realise this as you look around, sit inside and get driven around. BMW has really worked on the shortcomings of the older car and has given a more complete package that truly excels in key departments like ride comfort, refinement and on-board features. It still remains incredibly good to drive with strong performance and impressive dynamics. BMW has also taken the lead with plug-in hybrids in the segment as they are offering the 745Le xDrive in the line-up. With all the above attributes, it won’t be an exaggeration to say that the new 7 is closer to being an all-rounder than ever before.
