BMW is testing the new generation of the luxury sedan and makes it clear: The BMW 7 Series remains a model for luxurious driving comfort and is not trimmed for ultimate sportiness. Nevertheless, he will act as a pioneer of a new design again – we have created an exclusive render.
A new rendering of the new BMW 7 Series gives an impression of what the new luxury sedan will look like. Read on for everything you need to know

This alternative to the Mercedes S-Class, the Audi A8, and the Lexus LS is expected to come onto the market in 2022 and be equipped with new technologies.
This exclusive rendering gives you an idea of what the new BMW 7 Series might look like. It has many bold design features that make it stand out in the company parking lot.
BMW’s controversial kidney grille doesn’t seem to have gone as it dominates the front of the new 7 Series. You can also see the grille protruding into the bumper, similar to the 4 Series and M3.
There seems to be a new split headlight design, similar to the new BMW XM concept. It consists of slim LED footlights above the high beam units.
Spy shots of the rest of the car show a similar design feature as the current 7 Series. You can see some sleek taillights and a bold crease on the side of the car.
BMW 7 Series: Engines
On the drive side, we assume that the new 7 Series will come with 48-Vold mild hybrid diesel and gasoline engines. In addition – like the current model – there will certainly be a plug-in hybrid version and with the i7 an electric model has already been confirmed.
The top drive is likely to be an already known V8 engine, otherwise, turbo six-cylinder engines with a mild hybrid system will be used and the iX technology will be used for the i7. A V12 has not existed since the current generation – and it will stay that way.
The range will likely start with a choice of 3.0-liter diesel and a 3.0-liter turbo gasoline engine, and then build up to a more muscular 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. There will also be a gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid that could have an electric range of more than 65 kilometers.
The weaker engines are expected to be equipped with rear-wheel drive, while the more powerful variants will have xDrive all-wheel drive. 8-speed automatic transmission is expected to be standard on the new 7 Series. However, the M760 Li V12 is not expected to be replaced.
The interior of the new BMW 7 Series has not yet been spotted, but you can be sure that it will be very spacious and comfortable. If you need even more space, there will certainly be an extended version.
The technical data will be announced shortly before the market launch. However, the new BMW 7 Series will likely have features that correspond to those of the luxury electric SUV BMW iX.
Likely to be a more minimalist interior dominated by a huge, curved digital display on the dash, along with built-in 5G data connectivity and standard voice and gesture control features.
2023 BMW 7 Series Prices
The new BMW 7 Series won’t hit showrooms until 2022, although there’s a chance the car will be unveiled as early as the end of 2021. The prices will increase significantly compared to the current model – the new series will cost at least 95,000 euros.
