Interior and equipment. Luxurious ambience with inspirational style and exclusive technology.
Generous levels of space, carefully selected materials, harmoniously coordinated design details and exclusive workmanship combine to create a luxurious interior ambience in the new BMW 7 Series. Complementing the performance and refinement of the powertrain and chassis technology, these attributes ensure that the new BMW 7 Series offers both driver and passengers a luxurious on-board experience.
The new updated interior includes a screen grouping formed by the instrument cluster and the Control Display, the extended functionality of its controls and further improvement of the infotainment systems with iDrive 7. Trim strips, leather-covered surfaces and light sources make a greater contribution to the exclusive feeling of the new BMW 7 Series cabin. Improved acoustic comfort makes for a more relaxing travel experience.
Exclusive Nappa leather and BMW Individual Merino full leather trim with extended quilting and new interior trim strips.
The new BMW 740i, 740i xDrive and 745e xDrive Sedans come standard with Dakota leather upholstery, available in five different colors. A choice of six color variants is offered for the optional Nappa leather upholstery with extended appointments (standard on the 750i xDrive and BMW M760i xDrive). A new Nappa leather with extended quilting is now available in Mocha and Cognac color choices as part of the optional Luxury Seating Package. The extensive, three-dimensional surface quilting is found on the front and rear seat cushions and backrests, the armrests integrated in the door trim and the center console and gives the interior a further touch of luxury. In models equipped with the Executive Lounge or Executive Lounge rear console options, the high-quality quilting is also to be found on the rear center armrest.
The optional BMW Individual fine-grain Merino full leather trim – is available in six colors and features not only extended quilting but also contrast stitching and piping.
The interior trim for the new BMW 7 Series allows the styling to be further individualized to the owner’s taste. New to the range are exclusive fine wood versions in American Oak Dark with metal inlay and Poplar Grain Metallic Grey high-gloss. Both the trim and the instrument panel’s chrome surrounds that border them are made individually for each car to ensure that their dimensions match down to the millimeter. The new design features also extend to the trunk of the new BMW 7 Series, where a stainless steel insert in the loading sill makes a stylish quality statement. This feature is standard equipment on all model variants with the exception of the plug-in hybrids.
The improved sound insulation is a significant factor in the superior level of comfort provided by the new BMW 7 Series. The electric power windows of the luxury sedans feature new drive motors and control units which ensure precise power management, smooth movement and a consistent sound when the windows are lowered and raised.
Steering wheel, wireless charging tray for smartphones and Ambient Lighting.
A chrome fascia element and a modified layout of the multifunction buttons define the redesigned standard leather steering wheel in the new BMW 7 Series. The button array for the driver assistance systems on the left-hand spoke of the steering wheel has been reorganized. The button for activating the standard heating system for the steering wheel is now located below the steering wheel airbag housing.
The new BMW 7 Series models are equipped with standard wireless charging, now located in a more convenient position immediately in front of the cup holders.
The standard ambient lighting comprises LED lighting in the vicinity of the instrument panel, the upper door trim, the map pockets on the front seat backs, and in the foot wells. Using the iDrive 7 system menu, it is possible to choose from six colors to adjust the indirect illumination to personal preference. Courtesy lights, illuminated bars on the door sill plates and the Welcome Light Carpet in the entrance/exit area are also included with ambient lighting. An even more sophisticated impression is created by the Ambient highlight feature in the B-pillars, which combines with the optional sun blinds for the rear side windows and rear window to create a particularly atmospheric lighting effect in the rear of the new BMW 7 Series. When deactivated, the vertically arranged light sources now blend into the ambience of the luxury sedans even more harmoniously as a result of their high-quality smoked-glass look.
