What We Like

Cutting-edge construction; fabulous engines; high-class appointments; remarkable suspension.

What We Don't

This generation has been out for a year and we still can't think of anything beyond the amount of dollars required to buy one.

What's New in the 2017 BMW 740e xDrive?

After last year's debut of a new generation, the 7 Series range has expanded to include two high-performance versions and a plug-in hybrid. Remote control parking is available for 740i and 750i variants. The previously optional "display key" (which gives a full-color readout of details like mileage range and cabin temperature, as well as locking and unlocking) has become standard. Upgraded M Sport brakes have joined the options list. And the entry-level 740i may now be specced with all-wheel drive. See the 2017 BMW 7 Series models for sale near you

Which 740e xDrive is the Best?

In an ideal world, the B7 would never cease to thrill and cosset. But even a midrange 750i xDrive and a few options will likely keep all but the most adrenaline-addicted perfectly happy.

How Much Does a 2017 BMW 740e xDrive Cost?

Although not badged as such, the 2017 BMW 7 Series is the long-wheelbase version, offering maximum rear passenger space. BMW doesn't bring the shorter version into the United States.

The 740i ($82,495) comes with a comprehensive list of standard equipment. This includes 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED lighting inside and out, an adaptive air suspension, quad-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, selectable drive modes, keyless entry/ignition, hands-free trunk operation, a twin-panel panoramic sunroof, soft-closing doors, 10-way power-adjustable/heated front seats with driver's-side memory settings, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a 10.2-in display and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system with satellite/HD Radio and a pair of USB ports.

The 750i ($95,595) has 19-in alloys, upgraded leather, a head-up display (which BMW claims to be the largest in the industry), a power sunshade for the rear window and 20-way multicontour front seats. This model can also come with all-wheel drive, badged as the 750i xDrive.

Both versions are eligible for the Autobahn package, which uses cameras to read the road surface and then prompts the computer-controlled suspension to react accordingly. It also includes variable-ratio steering and rear-wheel steering (known as Integral Active Steering).

The 750i can be ordered with the Rear Executive Lounge package, where the reclining passenger-side rear seat is more like first class air travel, complete with a retractable footrest and foldaway table, plus a dual-screen rear entertainment system and a tablet that can control various car functions, surf the web or act as a gaming console (and which is held in place by cool little power-retractable clips).

The 740e xDrive ($90,095) adds the plug-in hybrid system and dedicated instruments. Navigation, gesture control and wireless smartphone charging are all standard.

The M760i xDrive ($154,795) comes with the turbo V12, M Sport brakes, an M suspension tune and Integral Active Steering. It's not an out-and-out M version as we've come to know and love them (like the M3, for example), but still incredibly special.

The Alpina B7 ($137,995) includes Integral Active Steering, the Autobahn package, wireless smartphone charging, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, gesture control, powered side sunshades and massaging front seats.

Other options for the range include heated armrests, a cabin fragrance system, massaging seats, a 1400-watt Bowers & Wilkins Surround Sound system with 16 part-illuminated speakers, and night vision and other advanced protective features listed in the Safety section below.

Trunk space is a capacious 18.2 cu ft.

Is the 2017 BMW 740e xDrive a Safe Car?

In addition to all the mandatory safety equipment, the airbag count includes full-length side curtain units as well as a couple for the front occupants' knees.

A Driver Assistance Plus package is available for both models and includes lane-departure warning, blind spot monitoring, forward-collision mitigation with automatic braking, automated parking and a 360-degree camera system. It's not until we get to the Driver Assistance Plus II package (perhaps the one thing we don't like) that adaptive cruise control becomes available. This package also has more "autonomous" technology, with lane-departure prevention and traffic-jam assist bringing a virtual hand to the steering wheel.

This generation of 7 Series has not yet been crash-tested in the United States.

2017 BMW 740e xDrive vs the competition

2017 Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- Utterly superb and packed with technology. The S-Class has always been the segment leader.

2017 Audi A8 -- Renowned for its predominantly aluminum body. A new generation debuts for the 2018 model year.

2017 Porsche Panamera -- Gorgeous interior, driving talent for days. A new generation debuts for this model year with much improved styling (subjectively speaking).

2017 Jaguar XJ -- Handsome and supple, with a mostly aluminum body. An update is expected for the 2018 model year.

2017 Lexus LS -- Solid and dependable. A new generation arrives in 2017, to be sold as a 2018 model.

Used Bentley Flying Spur -- For this particular mix of space, luxury and driving ability, the options are few. The Flying Spur is one, with a hand-crafted cabin and a 552-hp W12 engine under its imposing hood.
