The 2018 BMW 7 Series just plain rips apart the competition with its 0-60MPH acceleration timing. It takes 4 seconds to do so but it fails to capitalize on its rivals during the quarter-mile run. The 2018 BMW 7 Series gets considerably slower than the 2018 Cadillac CT6 in the quarter-mile timing which takes 12 seconds to cover the distance.
During our emergency braking test, 2018 BMW 7 Series takes forever to come to a complete stop. The brake pedal is on the tighter side and the feedback is minimal. Even though the car stops in a no-nonsense manner it is relatively the slowest to stop from 60MPH to zero amongst the competitors. The 2018 Jaguar XJ XJR575 Sedan takes a meager 88 feet to halt from 60MPH which is a lot quicker than any other rival in the segment.
