When the facelifted 7-Series makes its debut some time next year, it will have to be ready to take on stiff competition from the all-new Mercedes Benz S-Klasse, though BMW, it seems, has decided to leave the car relatively unchanged. This is probably why we couldn’t find a single detail that was changed inside the car, not even a button.
However, small changes to the exterior will include new LED accents wherever possible. Thus, the indicators will take on the form of an LED bar, and the Bavarians will offer a new LED headlight as an optional extra.
As for the rest of the 7-Series engine range, the 740i will surely make use of the twin-turbocharged engine from, but power may be bumped to around 350 hp, while the 750i should have about 450 horsepower from a 4.4-liter V8 petrol engine that makes use of BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology with two turbochargers and high-precision direct injection.
The 7-Series facelift will debut at next year’s Beijing Auto Show in April, while also staring in New York. The new ActiveHybrid 7 should debut at the same time, since it was originally aimed at the Asian market.
