2011 BMW ActiveHybrid 7 Styling

The ActiveHybrid 7 sedan carries on the styling changes that occurred in the 2010 BMW 7 Series. As a result, the vehicle boasts a streamlined exterior that incorporates a sleek and refined silhouette. Subtle creasing and a trademark BMW grille also help give the vehicle a muscular undertone.

Inside, the ActiveHybrid 7 delivers a driver-centric environment that is piled high with technology features and upper-crust assemblage. The vehicle’s center stack slants towards the driver and a healthy splash of wood trim helps deliver an overall feeling of warmth. In terms of comfort, the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 pampers with such available features as 16-way power adjustable front seats, heated/ventilated front seats, reclining rear seats and massage function.

Rear-seat dimensions are ample enough for adults of most sizes. Shoppers who want additional room should consider upgrading to the extended wheelbase 750Li. At 14.0 cubic feet, the BMW 7-Series hybrid is a bit short on cargo room.

The ActiveHybrid 7 comes equipped with a capable 4.4-liter turbocharged V-8 engine. Paired with an electric motor, this powerplant delivers a blistering 455 horsepower and 515 lb-ft. of torque.
