From sporty to extremely comfortable: driving dynamics in the new BMW 7 Series.

The BMW 7 Series is rewriting the laws of dynamics in the luxury class of automobiles. With maximum precision, extreme agility and superior driving characteristics in any situation. And with a level of ride comfort for driver and passengers that sets a new befitting benchmark: the highest of all.

DRIVING DYNAMICS.

Road conditions change, outstanding agility and unique comfort remain confidently at the highest level. Innovative drive train and chassis technologies are your guarantee of this along with the new optimized driving modes such as COMFORT+.

  • Optimized driving modes

    The BMW 7 Series completely redefines driving dynamics – with perceptibly increased agility and maximum ride comfort for the driver as well as the front and rear passengers. Using the Driving Experience Control, you determine at the push of a button which character of the BMW 7 Series shines through. All driving modes have been noticeably enhanced for supreme self-assuredness in every situation. The result: SPORT now feels even more athletic, SPORT+ guarantees maximum performance with style. The COMFORT+ driving mode gears all the connected systems, such as Integral Active Steering , damping, engine control and transmission towards ultimate ease of travelling – for even more relaxed driving or concentrated work in the rear.
     

  • ConnectedShift

    The dynamic feature ConnectedShift further enhances the driving experience in the BMW 7 Series Sedan. Combined with the special equipment Navigation system Professional , the drivetrain function decides the optimal gear-changing rhythm based on the type of road, thus guaranteeing particularly dynamic cornering.
     

BMW xDrive all-wheel drive.

BMW xDrive all-wheel drive.

On snow and ice or poor roads, traction is not a luxury but an essential requirement for safe and comfortable travel. BMW xDrive provides maximum traction, tracking stability and driving safety on any surface and in any weather.

Unlike other all-wheel drive systems, BMW xDrive also guarantees close contact with the road on slippery surfaces – with the special driving sensation of the rear-wheel drive. At lightning speed, the intelligent all-wheel drive system by BMW channels the propulsive force to the wheels with the best traction.

Under normal circumstances, the drive force is distributed in a 40:60 ratio between front and rear axles. When the xDrive sensors detect a loss of traction, the power distribution is flexibly redistributed to match the road conditions, so that the wheels with the most traction receive the optimum drive force. The result: maximum tracking accuracy and safe driving characteristics in any situation.

BMW xDrive is optionally available for the BMW 750i/Li, BMW 730d and BMW 740d but a standard-feature in the BMW 750d xDrive .

8-speed Steptronic transmission.

8-speed Steptronic transmission.

Supreme travelling comfort – eight times over: the especially fine spacing of gear ratios in the 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission reduces fuel consumption significantly and at the same time enhances the gear-shifting dynamics. In the COMFORT+ driving mode, it changes gear with such silky smoothness that the transition is barely perceptible in the rear.

During comfort-oriented driving, the 8-speed automatic transmission impresses with harmonious power development, almost imperceptible gear changes and supremely smooth running. However, the light, friction-optimized transmission also supports a sporty driving style with improved shifting dynamics and significantly more spontaneous gear changes.

The 8-speed automatic transmission is an important driving force for efficiency, too: with direct reductions in fuel consumption and emissions – and together with the option ECO PRO as the basic technology for the especially fuel-efficient coasting.
