BMW 7 Series Video Review

Believe it or not, this is the latest sixth generation BMW 7 Series. While evolution may be the name of the game on the outside, there’s revolution afoot beneath the skin. Boasting greater efficiency and even more luxury than before, can it finally topple Mercedes’ S-Class?.

Longer, taller and better equipped yet up to 130kg lighter than before, the MK6 model BMW 7 Series has had to get clever to keep up with the demands of the marketplace. With a frugal diesel and a plug-in hybrid available, it proves even luxury barges need a conscience these days.

BMW’s 7 Series has been with us four decades now, with the first generation car having gone on sale back in 1977. Initially available in one length with a six cylinder engine, a V12 was offered back in 1987 on the second generation car with a long wheel base model available too. As the Nineties became the Naughties, increased environmental concerns saw the introduction of diesels for the UK market as the list of available equipment grew along with the car’s size and weight.
