In recent years, the BMW 7-series has evolved from sports sedan to plush luxobarge, and the 2021 model follows suit. Its soft suspension, quiet cabin, and pampering luxury features make it an appealing limo for affluent buyers, most of whom won’t mind if their chauffer isn’t particularly entertained by the car’s almost lifeless helm. A host of powertrain options is offered, ranging from the 320-hp inline-six to a fire-breathing twin-turbo V-12. But no matter which mill is underhood the 7-series remains a calm, collected cruiser that won’t break a sweat on long road trips and will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed when you reach your destination.
Little differentiates the 2020 and 2021 7-series models. Heated front seats, heated front armrests, a heated steering wheel, a built-in dash cam, and remote start are all standard features now, but the in-dash CD player has been discontinued. Heated rear seats are also now a standalone option.
