Judging from the pictures below, it seems like BMW's 7-series is getting more "bloated" with every new design. Over the years, the current 7-series went from ugly duckingling to pioneer, with many industry leaders eventually copying the infamous bangle-butt.

The pillars are relatively thinner and more sloped, the C-pillar appears to flow into the trunk deck more freely, which is itself more integrated into the body by being a bit longer.
