This BMW 7-Series may look less controversial than the model that was launched in 2002, but that doesn't mean that it's any less revolutionary. There are no carry-over components from the previous car and this 7-Series has a softer and more elegant look to it.

Parkers Rating:

4.5 out of 5

This BMW 7-Series may look less controversial than the model that was launched in 2002, but that doesn't mean that it's any less revolutionary. There are no carry-over components from the previous car and this 7-Series has a softer and more elegant look to it. There are new engines that bring emissions to a new low and - for the first time - it's possible to buy a model that emits less than 200g/km of CO2 - the same as some much smaller family cars.

Inside, every car comes with satellite navigation and is elegantly finished with top quality materials. The high-tech gadgets available on the options list have a Tomorrow's World flavour to them, with night vision, head-up display and a side-view camera offered.

What owners say...

 Everything is easy to use. Parking the car can be difficult in same places due to it's size but the car is easy to manoeuvre with good visibility all around.
