2013 BMW 7-Series
MSRP STARTING AT
$699/month for 36 months.
The 2013 BMW 7-Series is available in a wide range of models – and in two different sedan body styles. Models designated with an ‘L’ get five inches of additional wheelbase, most of which goes to additional back-seat legroom. All 7-Series models come with a Brake Energy Regeneration system that helps save energy by managing the alternator to charge more when coasting or braking.
The 7-Series also has a host of electronics that not only help increase safety and stability but help the 7-Series drive like a smaller sedan. xDrive models also come with Hill Descent Control, which can help keep speed within a set speed between 6 and 15 mph on very steep, slippery (snow-covered or icy) inclines. There’s also an Integrated Chassis Management system that individually applies the brakes and throttle individually and helps xDrive-equipped cars handle better. All 7-Series models come with an excellent double-wishbone front and multi-link rear suspension, bringing a very responsive feel without ignoring ride comfort. Long-wheelbase (740Li and 750Li) versions come with a self-leveling air spring system for heavier loads, and back-seat space in those vehicles is vast. The front seats in all 7-Series models are firm but long-distance comfortable, and very adjustable.
Electronic Damping Control, which gives the driver a choice of Comfort, Normal, Sport and Sport Plus modes, also comes with all 7-Series models. It controls the attitude of the electronic stability control system, along with throttle responsiveness, shift behavior and steering assist. The optional Integral Active Steering system adds even more responsiveness, by actually steering the rear wheels (less at higher speeds) to help with maneuverability up to about 75 mph.
Available high-tech features in the 7-Series include swiveling adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, a head-up display, Active Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Departure Warning and Active Blind Spot Detection. A Night Vision system is also on the options list. And for those who prefer to have others do the driving, there’s a Luxury Rear Seating Package that brings rear ventilated seats with massage.
