2020 BMW 7 Series: Redesign, Interior, Specs & Pricing
A new flagship concept. BMW is redefining the top of the range and, in general, the concept of a super-luxury sedan. The presentation of the 2020 BMW 7 Series is a clear declaration of intent with its decisive presence, sophisticated elegance and great technological content that marks the path of the future in terms of driving assistance technology, such as the debut of the new Reversing Assist.
Also the range of engines for the new BMW 7 Series has been updated and includes a new eight-cylinder engine, a six-cylinder unit and plug-in hybrid systems that offer a wide electric range. All model variants already meet Euro 6d-Temp emissions standards.
2020 BMW 7 Series Redesign & Changes
First of all, the 2020 BMW 7 Series will come in two versions, a short wheelbase (5.12 meters) and a long wheelbase that, thanks to the 14 cm extra wheelbase, translates into additional space for rear passengers. Both versions have grown by 22 millimeters compared to the respective previous versions, while width and height have remained unchanged. To change, on the front, it is above all the grille, with the double kidney that reaches dimensions really gigantic but very effective, with a coverage increased by 40%. The grid is then combined with the finest projectors to create a stylistically fascinating contrast and to add a new element to the character of the BMW luxury model. The BMW Laserlight headlights, which can illuminate up to 560 meters, can be chosen as an alternative to adaptive LED headlamps.
The air intakes that drive the flows to the brakes and reduce noise disturbances at high speeds have also changed, while at the same time increasing the elegance of the new model. Before talking about the 2020 BMW 7 Series price, a quick glance at the B-side, where the tailpipes have wider chrome rims while the three-dimensional rear lights of the new BMW 7 Series are thinner than about 35 millimeters from the previous version and create a sophisticated and precise design.

Inside the 2020 BMW 7 Series, decidedly generous in terms of space, there could be no lack of first choice materials, with Exclusive Nappa leather with extended quilting that was added to the list of options.

All with a particular attention to the soundproofing of the passenger compartment, at record levels.
