You could have a long and fruitless argument about which is the best of the current crop of BMW models - although it would probably be an M-something depending on your tastes – but when it comes to the poshest BMW there's only one contender. The BMW 7-Series is where you'll find all the bells and whistles, and if you're looking to lease yourself a luxurious saloon there's a brand new one to consider.

The new BMW 7 Series is designed to deliver an incredible driving experience, unsurpassed long-distance comfort, and cutting-edge digital technology.

Available exclusively in long-wheelbase form in either M Sport or Excellence specification, the new BMW 7 Series range launches later this year with the pure electric i7 xDrive60. The plug-in hybrid 750e xDrive and M760e xDrive are set to follow in spring 2023. The Flagship i7 M70 xDrive version will follow later in 2023.

The all-electric BMW i7 features similar design accents to the rest of the i-range that highlight its fully electric status. The horizontal bar in the lower air intake, the decorative elements in the side skirts and rear apron, and the surrounds of the BMW logo at the front and rear all come in BMW i Blue as standard.

As is only right, BMW has spent a great deal of time thinking about the interior of the latest 7 Series. Of course, you get acres of leather to go along with the acres of leg and headroom. It's a BMW 7 so luxury comes as standard.

The cockpit in the new BMW 7 Series has been ‘digitised' as much as possible to significantly reduce the number of buttons, switches and controls. The fully digital screens consists of a 12.3-inch instrument display behind the steering wheel and a control display with a screen diagonal of 14.9 inches, both directed slightly towards the driver for ease of use. And in terms of technology, if you can think of it – within reason – then it's either standard kit or an optional extra on this topline BMW. It's even got automatically opening doors front and rear.

If you want fancy options on your new 7 Series you need the BMW Theatre Screen.


A 31.3-inch 8K touchscreen display with Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system and Amazon Fire TV built-in, complete with touchscreen remotes in the door panels, and an automatic rear shade that closes when you turn it on. You can stream videos, listen to music, get information, and watch downloaded programmes – all while on the road. You can even play games, which is the only reason we can think of as to why it may also have optional in-seat exciters…

Disclaimer: The seat exciters are actually part of the optional Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System. It has a 4D audio function generated using magnetically controlled vibrations in the front and rear seat backrests that improve your perception of bass frequencies.

The new BMW 7-Series is every inch a £100k car. It's a luxurious haven to while away the time spent on the road, either enjoying the comfortable drive, or cocooned in the lavish rear seats. If you fancy leasing some of this luxury, then head this way.
