BMW redesigned the 750i and the 750iL based on buyer feedback. This resulted in a whole new 7-Series for 2009. The exterior design focuses on a sharp, full-length front to back crease to give the cars a stretched look. The kidney-shaped grill is set further forward than other BMW models for prominence. Gone is the bulbous trunk as well as other controversial styling from previous models. The interior has improved ergonomics for a more comfortable ride
2016,The 7 Series comes with Integrated Chassis Management (ICM), which uses multiple sensors throughout the car to allow for four different types of drives: comfort, normal, sport and sport plus. ICM includes the new Dynamic Damping Control, a type of variable shock damping, Integral Active Steering with speed-sensitive rear-steer and Electronic Differential Lock Control, which allows for some slip in the sport plus mode but still includes stability control. BMW's Active Roll Stabilization is available as an option.
2016,Outstanding safety features include night vision with pedestrian detection, which alerts drivers to pedestrians or cyclists within close range. Also included are side view cameras, part of the Blind Spot Detection System that will vibrate the steering wheel should the driver signal a lane change and another vehicle is in that lane. Standard are ABS, traction control, an anti-skid system, front side airbags, knee airbags and curtain side airbags.
2016,Also standard are steering-linked headlights, front and rear-obstacle detection and BMW Assist emergency and concierge service. Options include an adaptive cruise control, which can move the car automatically in traffic.
