After a couple of days spent behind the wheel of a 7 Series, we realized that the new 7 Series is indeed worth every single cent. The car appears to be the perfect combination of excellent power, superior comfort and the lowest possible fuel consumption.
The guys over at the Bavarian automaker managed to do an amazing thing with the engine, which develops no less than 306 horsepower but can achieve even 9 l/100km in urban conditions, obviously in a perfect world. From this point of view, the engine, together with the transmission setup, is surely one of the main advantages as compared to its rivals.
Comfort on the other hand is practically at the highest possible level, as BMW equipped the car with almost every feature an eccentric wealthy business would desire. From four-zone automatic climate control to seats with massage functions, the 7 Series could be easily considered a living room on wheels.
