2009 BMW 7 Series. Luxury supreme

Submitted by on 17/04/2009 – 08:34No Comment

The new seven series is a luxury car to set the ever increasing bar.

Power

Under the hood is bigger and better than any previous effort in the seven series – the 750iL boasts a mighty 400 horsepower (which is more than 40 more horses than before) and can rocket from zero to sixty in less than five seconds.  Although the miles per gallon of the new  4.4 liter V8 engine are a bit modest in terms of conservation (15 city and 23 highway), they are still competitive among the big boys in the luxury class.

Comfort

The new 750iL is big in terms of power, but the older versions often came under a lot of criticism when it came to the interior.  Larger bodied individuals often passed up previous cars in the seven series even though the power and handling were second to none, simply because they didn’t feel there was enough room for them in the cockpit.  The previous version of the seven series also came under some criticism for not having the seat adjustments in positions that were convenient enough for a larger person to adjust without a struggle.

BMW has reacted to criticisms of the previous model's interior by improving on the cab's head and leg room space. The arrangement of the control panel has also been made to please the driver.

The seven series is usually a chauffeur driven car but even the dignitaries will want to get a drive as often as possible.

Behind the Wheel

Incredible, almost space age options take the driving experience and the luxury car’s handling to unimaginable new levels.As ever the number of choices becomes more dream world like with each generation: night vision, side view cameras, rear wheel drive, and pedestrian detection.

The new 750iL also has greatly improved control with individually operating electronic dampers as well as anti-roll technology.  With the new technology in place the 750iL also out performs the competition in wet conditions as well.

BMW has always been a force to be reckoned with in the world of luxury cars, but even they seem to have outdone themselves with the new 750iL.  The look, feel and comfort of this car whether moving at sixty miles an hour down the highway or standing still is among the best of any luxury car made by any car manufacturer – and the eighty thousand dollar price tag makes it a steal when compared to some other luxury brands that are mentioned in the same breath.
