BMW has redesigned its flagship 7 Series sedan to be bigger than ever — and not necessarily in chassis dimensions. The new sheet metal is peak Twin Kidney Grille, with BMW saying that the trademark styling cue is 40% larger than the previous model. While some will find the new design polarizing, there's a good reason for the change — the increased opening provides more cooling for the motor and brakes. The base 740i model comes in rear-wheel-drive, while the rest of the range comes with xDrive, BMW's all-wheel-drive system, standard. The 745e is a plug-in hybrid with a 3-liter inline six, with other engines being a 4.4-liter V8 and 600 horsepower, 6.6-liter V12 in the top-end 760i. The upgraded iDrive 7 software gets a larger infotainment screen and a host of driver assists are available, from backing assist to electro-mechanical, servo-assisted steering. The new 7 Series launches in April 2019, with pricing to be announced closer to launch.
