Best of the Best 2016: Wheels | Sedans: BMW 750i xDrive
BMW’s redesigned flagship is the most driver oriented of the large luxury sedans, offering surprising agility for a car its size and adjustable driving settings that are comfortable but never limp. The styling is handsome and subtle. The 750i xDrive is not as ostentatious or plush as some of its competitors, but it’s the best choice if you intend to sit behind the wheel—or if you want to be chauffeured in simple elegance.
- A new carbon-fiber-and-aluminum passenger cell reduces the car’s weight by 190 pounds compared with the outgoing model.
- The 7 Series is equipped with technology that enables you to answer calls and change the stereo volume using only hand gestures.
- The large central display has been replaced by a touchscreen, rendering BMW’s iDrive rotary knob redundant.
- The Executive Lounge Seating Package adds a footrest, a folding tray table, and more legroom to the rear right seat.
