Used 2018 BMW 7 Series M760i xDrive
Which 7 Series does Edmunds recommend?
The buttery smooth turbocharged eight-cylinder in the 750i strikes the right balance of power, appeal and cost. The Autobahn package's predictive suspension adjustment makes the most of the 7 Series' air suspension, and the Driver Assistance Plus package adds adaptive cruise control, which is a must for any commute or long haul. Unless we also found the budget for a chauffeur, we'd skip the Rear Executive Lounge Seating because it removes some features from the front seats.
Edmunds' Expert Review
- Several engine options, including plug-in hybrid and turbo V12
- Strong acceleration from every engine choice
- Exceptional rear passenger space
- Standard adaptive air suspension delivers a comfortable and controlled ride
- No standard-length wheelbase model available
- Expensive options menu
In spite of its size, the 7 Series is a very competent performer. Even the plug-in hybrid 740e has considerable power, and transmission response from the eight-speed automatic is fantastic. The biggest drawback is a lack of road feel.
The 7 Series boasts an impressively smooth ride and exceptionally quiet interior, as well as a number of options for personalizing the climate for each passenger, and standard seats that are comfortable and highly adjustable.
Build quality is top-notch and refined, with high-quality materials throughout. There's incredible interior space, and the extra-long doors make it easy to get in and out of this big sedan. Controls are easy to locate and use, and the iDrive technology interface continues to improve.
The 7 Series offers an impressive array of technology, especially once you dip into the options menu. There's plenty of connectivity, although lack of Android Auto is a bit disappointing. There are numerous optional driver aids and they work well.

M760i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (6.6L 12cyl Turbo 8A)
The front passenger seat is NOT comfortable on long trips. The headrest can’t be adjusted, so I added a Samsonite travel pillow between seat & headrest, as the headrest hits in a way that’s not only uncomfortable, but not safe, at all. The backseat & drivers seat have massage, and all different ways to adjust for comfort, but not the front passenger. Quite puzzling to me. It doesn’t have lumbar support, and the only adjustment you can make is forward, back, recline, sit straight up. It’s very frustrating to have spent so much money on a vehicle, and one of the 2 seats we use the most is no better than riding in a school bus when I was a kid.
