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.

Equipment

This 7-Series is packed with technology - some of it standard, some of it optional. Every car has satellite navigation - a hard drive-based system with 80gb of storage. That means instead of requiring a CD or DVD, all the mapping software is built in. The remainder of the space on the hard drive is around 12gb and can be used to store MP3 music files (that's about 100 albums).

Tracks can be stored to the car's in-built hard drive from an Audio CD as it's being played (the tracks are automatically named as they are saved), or transferred by MP3s burnt to a CD or USB stick. Notable options include a 'side-view' camera, which will show oncoming traffic at difficult junctions on a split-screen in the car; a lane departure warning system; head-up display where the speed is projected onto the windscreen; a nightvision camera and a speed limit display.

In September 2009 an M Sport model was introduced which gets 19-inch alloys, body styling, high gloss exterior trim, sports seats, brushed aluminium interior trim, anthracite headlining and a M Sport steering wheel.
