BMW will launch the next-gen 7 Series at the 2016 Auto Expo

BMW will launch the next-gen 7 Series at the 2016 Auto Expo

The 2016 BMW 7 Series will be launched at the coming Auto Expo in February. The next generation of the flagship model from the Bavarian carmaker has a host of upgrades to put up a strong case in the luxury executive sedan segment.

The car is set to make its global debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show this month, followed by the European launch. Codenamed G11, the new 7 Series looks like an upgrade of the current model rather than a next generation car. The signature kidney grille dominates the front with vertical slats though it is more elaborate than before. The car also appears to be wider than the predecessor and has more aggression with the angular headlamps, in line with their new design philosophy. Both the side and the rear profile have been redone to make the new car look bolder than before.

The cabin layout is typical of what we have been seeing in the new range of BMW cars over the last few years. However, the features list is larger than any of the cars in the BMW lineup. While everything for the front seats has been taken care of, the attention in this car is on the rear passengers. The independent contoured seats at the back have everything, from a personalised entertainment system with an LCD display to parcel tray. 

The 2016 BMW 7 Series will be offered with three engines – two petrol and one diesel. We will get the long-wheelbase variants of the new BMW 7 Series – the 740Li, 750Li and the 730Ld. BMW will assemble the 730Ld in India via the CKD route, the petrol 740Li and 750Li will be imported as CBU. The all-new 7 Series will take on the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8 and the Jaguar XJ.
