Detailed Review

The new redesign brings the 7-series much closer to Rolls Royce Ghost, especially in silhouette. The face sports a much cleaner look, with sharper, slit-like headlamps, and a large, flat front grille, which is very reminiscent of cars by the British Luxury Automaker. The rear sports a joined taillamp, a very popular choice in the market right now, with the same tail lights as the upcoming 3-series but with a strip running along the width, joining them both. The side profile is very simple barring the one chrome strip running along the side and then merging with the air vent behind the front wheel arch. Pretty? Maybe. Eye-catchy? Oh, definitely!


BMW has been aggressively revealing its upcoming cars, and the new 7-series is another strong product that the company will introduce to their lineup in 2020. It will feature even more comfort and luxury than the current model, and surprisingly, better driving dynamics as well. As such, the new car does look like a significant improvement over the current one, although we shall take a closer look at all the available info to know more.

Though it started decades ago as a leather-lined sport sedan, the BMW 7 Series has placed a growing emphasis on advanced passenger comfort rather than thrilling driving dynamics. The 2020 BMW 7 Series is doubling down on the convenience and tech features, cementing its status as one of the pre-eminent luxury four-doors on the market.

While currently a large luxury limousine, the 7 series Beemer started life as a sports sedan, slightly more premium than the 5-series sports saloon. Now though, it is a completely different car, closer to a Rolls Royce than any other car. This analogy actually adds up, since the Ghost was built on an older 7-series platform. Although they have been sharing platforms before this, the sibling resemblance has never been so uncanny as it is right now.

2020 BMW 7-Series Design

The new redesign brings the 7-series much closer to Rolls Royce Ghost, especially in silhouette. The face sports a much cleaner look, with sharper, slit-like headlamps, and a large, flat front grille, which is very reminiscent of cars by the British Luxury Automaker. The rear sports a joined taillamp, a very popular choice in the market right now, with the same tail lights as the upcoming 3-series but with a strip running along the width, joining them both. The side profile is very simple barring the one chrome strip running along the side and then merging with the air vent behind the front wheel arch. Pretty? Maybe. Eye-catchy? Oh, definitely!

2020 BMW 7-Series Engine

Engines offered on the 7-series will remain the same. The base 740i trim will be powered by a turbo inline-6 motor with 315 HP, a 15 HP bump over the current model. The more premium 750i will be powered by a twin-turbo V8, which churns out a healthy 523 HP, 80 more than the current one. If even these figures don’t impress you, then consider this; there is a 600 HP twin-turbo V12 as well! 600 horsepower in a Limo!

Apart from these conventional engines, there is a hybrid trim as well. The 7 Series offers a plug-in hybrid variant, the 745e, replacing the 740e that is offered in the current gen. While Official figures haven’t been revealed, the figures are expected to be somewhere around 389 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque combined. The range is also expected to be better by 10 to 15 miles.

Interior Features

Of course, you have all the luxuries imaginable in the interiors of the 7-series. You are cocooned in the best materials money can buy, sitting on the best seats a car can have. You get BMW’s brilliant iDrive infotainment system with the latest iDrive 7 software. There is also a proprietary digital assistant on board, called “Hey BMW”. The system supports voice recognition, and has been programmed to understand a host of commands. The system is extremely sophisticated, offering much more capabilities than any system before it. You also get two microphones, one for the driver and the other for the front passenger. The system can recognize the source of the command and direct specialized requests towards the one who asked.

2020 BMW 7-Series Pricing and Availability

While the pricing for the 2020 BMW 7-Series won’t be announced for quite a while, we don’t expect a huge increase in the current pricing. The addition of new technology and features will demand a slight premium, with only the hybrid variant getting a significant bump in price.
