Experience The Future Of Luxury In The 2016 BMW 7 Series

April 22nd, 2016 by

Simply put, the 2016 BMW 7 Series is a showstopper. Here’s what Karim Habib, Head of Design for BMW Automobiles, had to say: “The new BMW 7 Series represents our take on contemporary luxury. During the design process, we worked with the idea of ‘Technological Poetry’ – the feeling of a perfect interaction between progressive technology and its translation into design.”

So what makes the 7 Series such an innovative vehicle? It starts with construction. The 7 Series features a lightweight Carbon Core, which lowers the center of gravity to enhance agility. A 445 horsepower TwinPower Turbo engine provides power to match the agility, culminating in a ride that’s closer to a sports car than a luxury sedan.

Then there’s the tech. The 7 Series is equipped with BMW Touch Command, coming in the form of a 7 inch tablet integrated into the center armrest on the rear of the vehicle. Think of the tablet as the car’s brain. It can be used to adjust rear and front passenger seats, air conditioning, ventilation, seat heating, interior lighting, blinds for the sunroof, and more. But we did say the future of luxury, didn’t we? So we’ve got to move beyond touch—which is where BMW Gesture Control comes in. This feature allows select functions to be operated through defined hand movements—no touch required. Swiping, pointing, and more are identified by a recognition area over the center console, allowing you to accept or reject calls, adjust volume, and more.

Listen, the truth is, we just love to show off the 7 Series here at Bill Jacobs BMW in Naperville, IL, so come in for a test drive so we have an excuse. And if a new BMW isn’t in the plans right now, don’t forget to check out our selection of pre-owned BMW vehicles.
