Riza Rizvi, Hopelessly in love with everything on four wheels. Interested in cars since my formative years, with an unhealthy affinity for exotics and tuners. Fondness for the open road with high-octane machinery for company!

The base 7 Series variants are assembled in India at the Chennai plant. 

The 2016 BMW 7 Series has been launched at the Auto Expo 2016. The automaker’s flagship luxury sedan was unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The new 7 Series is priced as follows:

The new 7 Series is based on the CLAR platform that is made from what BMW calls ‘Carbon Core’ technology. The body is made from a combination of steel, aluminum and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP). The luxury sedan has the distinction of being the first mass-produced car to integrate carbon fiber in its construction. It has resulted in the car being 130 kg lighter than its predecessor, while simultaneously having improved levels of strength and rigidity.

The center console houses the iDrive controller and controls for the HVAC system.

The 2016 BMW 7 Series is equipped with the iDrive 5.0 infotainment system that, for the first time, comes equipped with gesture controls. Other features that come as standard are individually power-adjustable rear seats, large head-up display and inductive smartphone charging.
