BMW cars are made for those lucky car enthusiasts who have big bank balance and don’t mind spending big. Luxury market in India has been going good for the past and hence there are lot of manufacturers coming in to make money. Old players like BMW too are busy in making their foot firm. They have sold the 5 and 3 Series well and there are heavy expectations from the 7 Series as well.

The unique feature about 7 Series is that it isn’t just made for luxury in rear seat but this car is bound to make you smile when you drive behind the wheel as well. This car is in its 5th generation and the automaker has extensively upgraded this vehicle. There are plans for 6th generation too. Let’s see what this 7 Series car is all about in more detail –

Subtle changes

BMW 7 Series is a good looking car and there are subtle changes done to the exterior which makes it even better. Best feature of this car are new LED head lights having hallmark corona BMW rings and smart accent strip. This makes sure that the car gets distinctive look. The kidney grille is modified and it now has 9 slats instead of 12 in the predecessor.

Front apron set is revised and this makes the car different from the previous model. The indicators are well integrated in to exterior mirrors lower section and they are part of new features of this car. Finally, the rear is powerfully chiselled and it benefits from chrome thin strip which connects 2 slim reflectors in rear apron.


Stepping in to the driver seat itself will tell you that this is no ordinary car. Seats are cosseting and things are feel great to touch. Driving position is perfect and all the controls are placed very close.

However, the layout could have been better but you will get used to it in some time.

In the back side, the design layout doesn’t matter a lot. You will feel like some king who is thoroughly pampered on the throne. There is no outside noise at all while driving.

Individual seating is offered as option for rear side and you can modify this car according to your needs. Optional package of Rear Seat Entertainment package comes with 9.2 inches display for those long journeys. For sound, there is 1,200 watts Bang Olufen High End Surround Sound Speakers system which gives awesome sound quality. There are 16 speakers inside with illuminated centre speaker which is retractable in instrument panel.

There is no compromise on luxury on this car and there isn’t anything left to desire either.

TwinPower turbo

BMW 730 Ld is really efficient and from the looks, it is hard to tell what is inside the car. When the throttle is buried, you will hear a snarl as new eight speed gear box goes down quickly for getting in to meat of power band. TwinPower turbo gets summoned immediately and after that, you get nirvana that is induced by pure force.

Traction control struggles constantly when you put down the 258PS and hulking 560Nm torque. The wheels are always looking to break the traction as electronics are working overtime for keeping things under control. There is 3.0L 6 cylinder engine which is quite surprising.

The automaker says that this car can go from zero to 100 kmph in just 6.2 secs and just like other cars, the top speed is 250 kmph.

The big change here as compared to the predecessor is the 8 speed transmission. With quick and smooth shifts, irrespective of the situation, transmission can collaborate really well with engine and this harness the efficiency and power to the maximum. For efficiency, there is technology like Auto Start/Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration, and 2nd gen driving experience control switch having eco pro mode and coasting feature.

This improves the fuel efficiency as compared to the previous car.

Limo having track pedigree

This is a BMW and it really doesn’t matter how long or big it is. People who have 7 Series say that it is best limos for driving around and this one too lives up to the expectations. We went through some twisty sections and put big Bimmer through corners which added to the fun. You get good feedback from steering wheel and you will always know what front wheels are doing.

Even if things get too hot, electronics of this car step up for keeping things cool. However, this isn’t any sportscar – it is just a loaded luxury limo. The kerb weight of this car is two tons and hence getting through tight corners might feel tricky at times.

The chassis wizadry on the BMW 730 Ld is really impressive and you get good comfortable ride with noticeable boost. To complement the optimized set up of chassis, there are modified rubber bearings and new dampers with self-levelling air suspension for rear axle. Control systems are all state-of-the-art and software inside too is retuned for enhancing the attributes of long distance rides.

You will have a great time in travelling long distance with this car; both the comfort and dynamics are well worth the money you are paying for this car.


BMW 730 Ld car is quite compelling and it has been improved a lot over its predecessor. I t is more powerful, more luxurious, and comes with new technologies inside like Attention Assist and Active Protection system. The price fof this car is Rs. 92.9 lacs with all these goodies.

The price of this car is on par with what competition costs but if you are spending this much on a car; then it really doesn’t matter what rival cars costs. The main hurdle of this car is the S-Class which is expected to be launched soon. Mercedes is always a tough competitor to beat but till then, the BMW 730 Ld will be our best bet.
