In the executive, flagship sedan segment there are a handful of players delivering the utmost combination of performance and luxury. The BMW 7 Series is one of the best sellers and for the 2016 model year, the brand’s stately 4-door enters its 6th generation; its first redesign since 2009. These types of cars often pioneer new technologies and this 7 Series doesn’t disappoint. Highlights include the extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic increasing strength and reducing weight by 190 pounds. iDrive 5.0 with Gesture Control allows hand movements in the vicinity of the center console to perform functions like adjusting volume and accepting incoming calls.
