After three years, the German manufacturer decided to enhance virtually everything about the 7 series in 2016. With a brilliant and stylish exterior, Dubai residents are offered both long and short wheelbase models.
The interior was not left out of the enhancement department with a multitude of once optional features now becoming standard with a whole new range of optional extras; active cruise control, gesture control for iDrive, lane departure warning, multiple cameras, person warning and much more. Autonomous drive mode is also on offer and may be very limited in terms, or when you can use it, however, it can park itself and sort of drive itself once enabled. This may not be available in all regions.
An Executive Lounge package is offered on long-wheel base models that added rear foldaway tables, rear tablet, entertainment package, cooled and massaging rear seats. Alternatively, a lighter version of this package is available dubbed as Individual. M Sport packages are available and add the letter M in various locations, alters the suspension slightly and adds small bits to the exterior and interior.
If you want a higher output M Sport package, the M760Li xDrive joins the lineup in 2016. Powered by a 6.75-litre V12 petrol engine, the same one found in Rolls-Royce models powered all four wheels and generates 600 horsepower. Interior specs consist of the optional extras of other models in the lineup.
For 2016, one of the inline-6 motors were dropped from the line-up. 6-speed autos were dropped in favour for an 8-speed one instead. Both engines are tuned for better outputs and fuel economy. A 2.0-litre 4-cylinder motor is present as was a plug-in hybrid known as the 740e; the latter takes over from the ActiveHybrid models from the previous generations.
