The LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) version of the BMW 7-Series has been spotted again doing its thing in German traffic. The prototype now gives away a lot more details compared to last year.
The early facelift became necessary after the introduction of the all-new Audi A8, while the also-fresh 2018 Mercedes-Benz S-Class has marked the three-pointed star's return to straight-six motors.
The visual changes delivered by the revamp will be quite significant with updated front light clusters and a very big grille giving the front a more dramatic approach. The massive styling cues we noticed on the X7 Concept iPerformance might just serve as inspiration for the production cues of the LCI-touched 7-Series.
With BMW having kicked off testing for an autonomous 7-Series last year, you can expect fresh self-driving assets for the revamped model.
Given the fact that there won’t be major changes to the sheet metal, the German carmaker might be dropping the revamped 7-Series by 2019. Hence you shouldn't expect any breakthrough in the powertrain department, with the engineers probably set to bring slight efficiency and/or output boosts across the board.
