The 2020 BMW 7 Series checks all the boxes for a flagship luxury sedan. Like any good flagship, it comes loaded with every trick in the automaker's bag, starting with an expansive interior trimmed in high-quality materials, incredible attention to detail, a raft of advanced technology features, and an array of powertrains with immense power.
A flagship luxury sedan's other defining characteristic is an eye-watering price tag, and here the 7 Series is no different. Opt for the top-trim M760i xDrive and load it with nearly every available option, and you've got a $180,000 sedan. You don't need to go to that extreme, though. A base 7 Series with its turbo six-cylinder engine and generous list of standard features still makes a fine luxury vessel for less than six figures.
For 2020, the 7 Series gets a new look, starting with a prominent new grille design that is boldly comical or comically bold, depending on your perspective. All 7 Series engines receive power upgrades. Notably, the turbocharged V8 in the 750i trim makes a whopping 523 horsepower, a nearly 20% increase from the previous engine.
Our chief complaint remains, but we've become less vocal about it: The 7 Series is no longer the driver-focused luxury sled it once was. Successive revisions (and weight gains) have muted its once-agile handling character in favor of increased comfort, isolation and straight-line speed. The results speak for themselves, and the 7 Series is still a capable all-around performer. And with its opulent and roomy interior, it remains a great choice for a flagship luxury sedan.
Gear changes are seamless, and the steering is nicely weighted at highway speeds and properly assisted in parking lots. Handling is a mixed bag. It's laser-quick to turn into a corner, but the loads of body roll amazingly never seem to affect the car's stability. It feels floppy but holds its line.
The seats are exceptionally comfortable, with loads of adjustability and quick heating and cooling, although our rear passengers weren't as impressed with the massage function. This experience is world-class luxury cruising all day.
Though listed as a five-passenger sedan, the 7 Series has a middle seat that isn't really suited to adults. It's useful in a pinch but don't count on it, especially for an adult. Control buttons, switches and knobs are still among the best and most intuitive in the business.
The semi-automated driving features are a boon for commuters, although lane keeping assist makes pretty aggressive steering corrections even when you are paying attention.
There's plenty of room inside the cabin for personal items, although your drinks are limited to a pair of cupholders front and rear. Child seat attachments aren't the easiest to access. They're hidden behind zippered flaps, and you'll need to fish your child seat anchors around to locate the attachment points.
This new 7 Series is maybe one of the best values around since it straddles the line between luxe and uber-luxe comfort and convenience. The warranty coverage is fairly standard, but the ownership experience is commensurate with the price tag, with BMW offering 24-hour roadside assistance for four years with unlimited mileage.
Its styling — that larger kidney grille design is downright comical — is a tad too bold and aggressive for our tastes, but we're sure many will like it. There's no doubt that it will not be mistaken for anything other than a BMW.
Which 7 Series does Edmunds recommend?
2020 BMW 7 Series models
The 2020 BMW 7 Series is available in five versions: 740i, 740i xDrive, 750i xDrive, 745e xDrive iPerformance and M760i xDrive. There are some slight variations in available features, but the main differences relate to powertrains.
The base 740i sedan starts with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine (335 horsepower, 330 lb-ft of torque), while the 750i upgrades to a turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 (523 hp, 553 lb-ft).
The 745e xDrive iPerformance plug-in hybrid uses a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder and an electric motor to produce a combined 389 hp. At the top of the 7 Series range is the flagship M760i xDrive, powered by a massive 6.6-liter turbocharged V12 (601 hp and 627 lb-ft).
Each version of the 7 Series employs an eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Only the 740i comes with standard rear-wheel drive. All other trims come with all-wheel drive only, denoted as xDrive.
There isn't much that the entry 740i doesn't offer, either as standard equipment or through available options. Highlights of the 740i's standard features include an adaptive air suspension, a power trunklid and power-closing doors. Inside, you'll find a panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and tech features that include a 10.25-inch display, a navigation system, in-car Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system.
Standard safety features include forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, low-speed automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors.
The 745e xDrive iPerformance has the same standard features as the 740i but comes with unique interior accents. Upgrading to the 750i gives you the bigger V8 engine and extra standard luxuries such as premium leather upholstery and a head-up display. The M760i xDrive, meanwhile, adds the V12 engine and a handful of extra luxury touches, including massaging front seats, heated and ventilated front and rear seats, power rear side window shades, and rear seats that slide and recline.
The 7 Series offers several option packages, notably the Autobahn package that adds variable-ratio steering and a system that scans road conditions and automatically adjusts the car's adaptive suspension. The Driving Assistance Plus package equips adaptive cruise control and semi-automated driving features. For maximum passenger comfort, there's the Luxury Rear Seating package (heated, ventilated and massaging rear seats) and Rear Executive Lounge Seating package (a rear-seat entertainment system and reclining rear seats with extendable footrests).

2020 BMW 7 Series First Impressions
2020 BMW 7 Series First Look
New Look, New Tech for BMW's Ultra-Luxe Sedan
Though it started decades ago as a leather-lined sport sedan, the BMW 7 Series has placed a growing emphasis on advanced passenger comfort rather than thrilling driving dynamics. The 2020 BMW 7 Series is doubling down on the convenience and tech features, cementing its status as one of the pre-eminent luxury four-doors on the market.
Reworked, Not Redesigned
There are several new design cues that distinguish the refreshed 2020 7 Series from last year's model. Literally front and center is a new, much larger grille that bears a striking resemblance to that of BMW's new flagship SUV, the X7. Also new are restyled bumpers, a full-width taillight cluster, and vertical air outlets aft of the front wheels. The 7 Series will also be one of the first vehicles available with BMW's Laserlight headlights, which emit a brilliant white light that allows drivers to see much farther down the road than even LEDs.
Last year's conventional engine choices return, though all have been tweaked in one way or another. The base turbocharged six-cylinder in the 740i receives a 15-horsepower bump, to 335 hp, while torque remains unchanged at 330 pound-feet. The most significant boost is to the 750i's twin-turbo V8 — power increases from 443 hp to 523 hp, while maximum torque jumps from 479 lb-ft to 553 lb-ft. The range-topping M760i's twin-turbo V12 now produces 600 hp and 627 lb-ft.
The plug-in hybrid 7 Series, meanwhile, receives the most significant mechanical upgrades. Last year, the 740e featured a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and hybrid powertrain, good for a combined 322 hp. While we found its performance perfectly acceptable — the 0-60 mph sprint took just 5.1 seconds — BMW decided to up the ante for the revised model. The upcoming 745e will improve performance by switching to a six-cylinder engine, increasing output to 389 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque combined. Although no official figures have been released, we also expect the plug-in's all-electric range to increase from the current estimate of 14 miles.
But the highlight of the 2020 BMW 7 Series is arguably its multitude of new features, options and enhancements. The digital instrument panel screen is modified, boasting a far more futuristic design than the previous analog-inspired display. The iDrive infotainment system jumps two generations to the latest iDrive 7 software, offering better voice recognition than before, along with a digital assistant similar to the one you have on your phone. Users will simply have to say "Hey, BMW" to activate the assistant, which can do anything from set a destination in the navigation system to adjust cabin and seat settings. These luxuries join already available exotic features, including massaging front and rear seats, air fragrances, and a road-scanning camera that adjusts the dampers to counteract upcoming rough surfaces.
Like any modern car, especially at this lofty price point, the 7 Series is loaded with driver assistance features. Standard items include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert and autonomous parking. The standard automatic emergency braking system can also now detect cyclists in addition to pedestrians. The optional Driving Assistance package includes Extended Traffic Jam Assist, a variation on last year's similarly named feature, which now provides a hands-free driving experience at speeds up to 37 mph on certain highways. A new item called Back-Up Assistant automatically reverses the 7 Series out of a parking space by using the previously stored park-in information and following the same line you took when you parked the car.
2020 7 Series Pricing and Release Date
Pricing for the 2020 BMW 7 Series has not yet been announced, but we don't expect prices to be substantially higher than for the 2019. The only likely exception is the 745e, which might get a price bump because of the change from four-cylinder to six-cylinder power. All four powertrains will be available when the 7 Series goes on sale spring of this year.

Should I lease or buy a 2020 BMW 7 Series?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
