Not taken with the looks of the current 7-Series? Then try this. It's all the car anyone could possibly need, although it does not exude the same kind of imposing opulence as an S-Class.

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

Not taken with the looks of the current 7-Series? Then try this. It's all the car anyone could possibly need, although it does not exude the same kind of imposing opulence as an S-Class. Despite its size, it looks lean, lithe and purposeful, even elegant. It's the luxury car for bosses who like to do the driving themselves, rather than sit back and let the chauffeur take over.

There is, however, a long-wheelbase version with extra rear legroom if sitting back is your thing, but that misses the point of the 7. Luxury, after all, doesn't mean that a car can't be enjoyable to drive. If all Europe's plutocrats owned a 7-Series, the chauffeur would be an endangered species.

What owners say...

 easy to drive - feels like a far smaller car so very agile and easy in traffic. Boot will take several bodies. Every thing needed bar sat nav which I got from halfords for small money.

 Huge space, kids love it and large lugage space. Good long distance cruiser.
