2016 BMW 7 Series for Sale near Creve Coeur, MO
You Don’t Have to Take the Wheel of the BMW 7 Series, But You’ll Want To
The Mercedes S-Class has been giving the BMW 7 Series a good run for its money for several years – no more. The 2016 BMW 7 Series for sale near Creve Coeur, MO, just bested the S-Class at its own tech game while still providing the driver with an urge to keep two hands on the wheel and control the smooth ride themselves.
With the competition for best cabin tech getting even fiercer, BMW finally relented and released the BMW 7 Series standard with an impressive amount of technology. The new cabin feels more like a scene out of a futuristic sci-fi than something that exists in the year 2016. LED lighting guides you into the sedan and you’re greeted by iDrive 5, which comes, standard, with Gesture Control, otherwise known as the most unique way to impress your passengers. Gesture Control is exactly what it sounds like – an overhead infrared camera that can identify specific hand movements and respond accordingly. Oh, that’s not what you expected? Well that’s what I’m talking about.
You can dismiss phone calls with an imperious wave like the ultimate motorist you are, adjust the audio volume with a rotary motion, and use a V-shape with two fingers to indicate that “yes, Jarvis, I would like to go home now” to have the navigation system guide you to your residence.
The 2016 BMW 7 Series for sale near Creve Coeur, MO, has also added a camera-based predictive program called Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview that changes the damper profiles based on real-time road conditions to compete with the Mercedes S-Class “Magic Body Control”. There are some significant stand-alone options on the 7 Series, too, including a remote control parking capability, a night-vision camera system, and a Bowers & Wilkins® surround-sound audio system.
Even with the numerous features listed, and unlisted, to make driving as hands-off as possible, the BMW 7 Series gives you two terrific options to take driving into your own hands. Both turbocharged, the BMW 740i comes with a 3.0-liter inline-6 with 320 horsepower and 330 lbs.-ft. of torque. The V8 is a 4.4-liter engine that increases the horsepower to 445 and the torque to 480 lbs.-ft.

The 2016 BMW 7 Series for sale near Creve Coeur, MO, has taken on that challenge and delivered with astounding generosity. Schedule your test drive at Newbold BMW today to experience it for yourself.
