    What else left for the new 7er?? I believe all the mentioned features MUST be in the new 7er since its competitor is the S Class.

    • Horatiu B. says:

      The G30 is a newer development so it’s normal to have other advanced features

      • Max says:

        Merc does the same with the new E-Class actually. You can also put in these features in the LCI 7er then. Often the governments are slower than the manufacturers so there is no real need to hurry. Laserlight or RCP in the US are the best examples.

    Autonomous driving will probably not be featured, and augmented reality won’t either. The HUD might increase in size but it definitely won’t adapt to the street in front of you, I think that the technology simply isn’t advanced enough. And for the Autonomous driving, I don’t think it will be allowed, due to government restrictions. But I hope the car wont look like the render, as it would simply look like the g11, contrary to BMW aim to further differentiate the models under the CLAR.
