2019 BMW 7-Sequence Evaluate, Scores, Specs, Costs, and Pictures
Full-size luxurious sedans just like the 2019 BMW 7-Sequence are rolling first-class cabins, loaded with tech, draped in leather-based, paneled in wooden—and that’s simply the entrance seats.
The rear seats might be equally opulent, and that’s in all probability the purpose.
For its commonplace and non-compulsory options, widescreen infotainment system, good guarantee, and customization choices, the 2019 7-Sequence would get an ideal 10—we take again a degree for extra-cost Apple CarPlay after the primary 12 months and land at a 9. (Learn extra about how we charge vehicles.)
Subsequent 12 months’s 7-Sequence guarantees appreciable developments in options and tech but when the cash’s burning a gap in your pocket, BMW has methods to take it now.
The bottom 740i prices about $84,000 and contains leather-based upholstery, 18-inch wheels, a moonroof, power-adjustable heated entrance seats, four-zone local weather management, lively security options (that we cowl above), premium audio, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.1-inch touchscreen for infotainment, and energy options.
On the high, the 2019 BMW M760i xDrive prices greater than $157,000 and contains 20-inch wheels, efficiency goodies like rear-wheel steering and aerodynamic packages, and a hulking V-12 planted beneath the hood. It’s a scream.
We’d steer extra towards serene with our choices.

A $3,900 rear-seat luxurious bundle presents a desk in again for local weather controls and infotainment, heated and cooled rear seats with massagers, and heated armrests. Examine. (For $5,750 extra on 750i variations, BMW can have the rear seats recline and add a footrest.)
And so forth. The 7-Sequence coddles riders with choices all the way in which as much as softer Merino leather-based for $4,000, premium audio from Bowers & Wilkins for $3,400, even remote-controlled parking that may shimmy the large sedan out and in of tight areas. The 7-Sequence doesn’t blink previous $100,000 and few vehicles can match its opulence. BMW’s commonplace guarantee covers three years of upkeep, and features a 4-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper guarantee that is higher than most of its rivals.
However even at six figures, BMW does one thing no different automaker does: Ask house owners to pay for Apple CarPlay yearly, after the primary 12 months. BMW’s insistence on making house owners “subscribe” to smartphone compatibility for $80 annually in a six-figure luxurious sedan is a bridge too far for us.
Maybe greater than another automobile BMW makes, the 7-Sequence integrates each side of its iDrive infotainment system into the automotive’s duties. The system is filled with helpful (and not-so-useful) redundancies, together with a clickwheel controller, touchscreen, gesture controls, and steering wheel-mounted controls—and that’s simply to alter the radio station.

The system, and its included redundancies, isn’t one in all our favorites from any automaker however it is among the most complete. BMW’s aligned with Microsoft for Outlook calendar integration and electronic mail, and the automaker’s up to date cell app is thorough and might notify others of the automotive’s arrival at a vacation spot—even discover an empty parking spot on the road.
It’s price studying to know all that it will possibly do, even when we predict it’s much less intuitive that some rivals’ methods.
