Our friend Sam over at Autoblog had the opportunity to test the new BMW 7 Series one more time, this time, the short wheelbase 750i. Just a couple of months ago, they posted another review of the ” bigger brother”, the 750Li.
Most of the 7 Series reviews we have seen so far are quite positive and the new high-end luxury sedan from BMW is getting thumbs up, including from us: BMW 750Li review.
But let’s see what Sam has to tell us about the car:
So is the 7-series back on track? Most definitely. The 750i is a pleasure to drive and its responses belie its dimensions. For those that live in regions where roads are less than stellar, the absence of the sport pack is less of an issue.
The adaptive damping system keeps the body level and unperturbed whether the pavement is pock-marked or curvy, and its surprisingly satisfying on all manner of roads. Of course, in typical German fashion, the price starts high and escalates quickly with the addition of options. Our tester had a base price of $80,300, but premium sound systems, seating, camera and convenience packages drove that up to an out-the-door price of $92,170.
If you can manage those payments, the 750i’s 16/22 mpg thirst for premium gasoline shouldn’t be a bother, and for the money, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more willing and eager luxury sedan to consume acres of asphalt with ease.
