2023 BMW 7 Series

2023 BMW i7

The design has been simplified down a bit from what intrinsically was a sharp-looking previous 7 Series BMW.  What you’ll notice with the new 2023 version is that the shape of the front nose has been heavily rounded at the headlight area.  The headlights are partially hidden main beams, and the DRLs are the much leaner looking lights that catch the eye – all this aiding the dominating presence of the massive kidney grille.  The taillights also have a thinner form and take up a smaller space on the big 2023 luxury sedan’s back end.  The high waistline still delivers a strong coherence, while the roof and its structure appear lighter, yet taller and further streamlined.  One thing is for sure, and that is that the 2023 BMW 7 Series Sedan is the most luxurious, high-tech sedan BMW has ever made.

The 2023 design is fresh and bold and, as BMW often does, they have wiped the slate clean and brought plenty of new styling and features with this new model.  Being a 7-Series, this is the BMW with all the gadgets, comfort, and advanced technology you could think of; and it’s at a standard so high it would be exactly what you’d be expecting if you were in the league for owning a brand new luxury sedan as good as this one.  These flash Beemers have really nice interiors that feel premium and very upmarket.  You can also get your new 7 Sedan with oak and ash wood trims, crystal glass controls, stainless steel speaker grilles, carbon fibre trims, and even a cashmere seat fabric.

Speaking of the new 7-Series being comfy, the 2023 7 Series and i7 models only come with the standard long-wheelbase length.  These new cars are actually 1 cm longer, almost 5 cm wider, and more than 5 cm taller than the outgoing model.  What this means is that inside the new 7’s interior the seating space is phenomenal both front and rear.  There is absolutely piles of legroom in the back.  BMW has also given their new car (i7 Sedan included) an optional 31-inch display screen for occupants in the back seats.  It folds down in front of them from the roof and stretches the width of the car!

2023 BMW 7 Series

New for this year is an advanced set of systems that read the road ahead before making the necessary adjustments to make your ride as comfortable and stable as possible.  Every new BMW 7 Series and BMW i7 gets adaptive self-levelling air suspension as standard, which can lower the car by 10 mm at higher speeds to help reduce the air drag.  This new air suspension can also raise by 20 mm so that judder bars and steep driveways pose no difficulty with bottoming the new 7-Series out.

The new adaptive cruise control system you’ll find onboard works at speeds up to 200 km/h.  This system can accelerate, steer, brake and change lanes for you, and it uses the GPS data to slow the car down for corners, junctions, and side roads, should you wish to.  Inside all of the 2023 BMW 7 Series cars you’ll be getting the latest iDrive infotainment system with a large, curved display screen, a Bowers & Wilkins sound system with 36 speakers, a panoramic glass roof, and an excellent 4-zone climate control system that is linked in with the heated seats.

BMW have given the new 7-Series buyers the option of being able to purchase a new pure electric version called the BMW i7.  The fully electric i7 looks almost identical to the standard 7 Series variants, except for the blanked-out air intakes and a few flashes of bright blue trim about the car.  BMW is a master of subtlety in its finesse, and I like it that way.  There’s only the one version of the i7 so far, and it’s called the BMW i7 xDrive 60.  It has a 102 kWh battery that gives you up to 620 km of range.  The brand new BMW i7 xDrive 60 comes with dual electric motors that produce a combined output of 406 kW.  BMW has also confirmed that they’ll build an even quicker BMW i7 M70 with 492 kW and 1000 Nm of torque, making it the most powerful BMW road car ever to be built.  Sub 4 second 0-100 km/h sprints will be a part of the course, I should say!

New BMW 7 Series come with 6 different petrol and diesel engines, all hybrid powertrains, and all of these engines mated with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.  The RWD BMW 735i models use a turbo-charged 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engine and a mild-hybrid system that produces 213 kW.  There’s also a more powerful RWD version called the BMW 740i and this comes with a 283 kW engine.  Then BMW have made the AWD BMW 760i xDrive.  This model has the glorious twin-turbo 4.4-litre motor that makes 405 kW.  It now comes with a mild-hybrid system and all that power!  An AWD xDrive BMW 740d is also available in some markets.  This works with the sweet twin-turbo 3.0-litre straight-6 diesel engine featuring a mild-hybrid system and making 224 kW.  It is smooth and effieicent, capable of seeing off the 0-100 km/h dash in well under 7 seconds.

Then there are the e versions – the full-on Hybrids.  BMW offers the AWD xDrive 750e hybrid Sedan, which uses a 231 kW 3.0-litre straight-six petrol-fed engine and a 149 kW electric motor for a combined total output of 365 kW and a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 5.0 seconds.  BMW M760e hybrids are very quiet, swift Sedans (well they all are really) but this model uses the 283 kW petrol-fed engine from the 740i and adds the 149 kW motor from the 750e hybrid to make 426 kW.  That’s enough to launch the luxury Sedan from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.  The 750e and M760e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) variants can drive for around 80 km on electric power alone – according to WLPT tests.

Sporty-looking M Sport BMW 7-Series Sedans come with 20-inch wheels as standard and a slightly more aggressive set of front and rear bumpers.  Then there is the performance model, the BMW M760e, which gets 21-inch alloy wheels as standard along with bigger exhaust surrounds and larger air intakes for the front bumper.  Obviously, what really sets this one apart from the others is the added performance.

Currently two models of the brand new 7 have arrived in Australia.  There will be more coming.
