Pricing and Engines
The BMW 7 Series is BMW’s full-size luxury sedan starting at $120 300 to $173 600 in Canada, and $96 950 to $141 700 in the USA. It’s actually based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost and comes with an extremely wide range of engines starting from a 2.0L Turbo I-4 to a 6.6L Twin-Turbocharged N74 V12, and even a plug-in hybrid. Fabulous Score: 75%
The different versions (in order of price) are 750i xDrive, 745Le Hybrid, 750Li xDrive, M760Li xDrive, and the high-performance Alpina B7 Long Wheelbase, with up to 600 horsepower and 590 lb/ft of torque. Each configuration may not upgrade certain interior features, but horsepower and technology (like in the infotainment screens) are certainly improved in the 750Li, which is the long wheelbase model.

The interior of the 7 Series is aesthetically pleasing and luxurious in all models, and is a direct rival to the Mercedes S-Class. Of course, there are large amounts of amenities in the rear seats, including heated, cooled, and massaging seats, fragrances, and entertainment screens for rear passengers. A feature that really sets the interior apart from most other luxury sedans is the Experience Mode, which basically allows the passengers to choose a ‘mood’ in the car that activates many other features such as the climate control and ambient lighting.

When you think of exterior styling of any BMW, the first thing that comes to mind is the signature kidney grille. It’s probably the most controversial exterior styling feature in the car industry. My opinion is that it looks ugly on the 7 Series, but suits large SUVs like the X5 and X7. Otherwise, the styling is very modern, with sleek and dramatic lines on the sides. Fabulous Score: 80%
The average Fabulous Score is 79.25%, which cannot be compared to other cars in the segment yet due to amount of posts. See a video from Doug DeMuro for more information.
