Overview

What's New in the 2019 BMW 740i?

Except for the entry-level version gaining blind spot monitoring and lane-departure warning as standard, the 2019 7 Series comes into this new model year essentially unchanged.

Which 740i is the Best?

The 750i xDrive would be a good starting point. And allocate some of the budget for a few options. Or abandon all restraint and get the Alpina B7.

How Much Does a 2019 BMW 740i Cost?

Although not badged as such, the 2019 BMW 7 Series is a long-wheelbase version, offering maximum rear passenger space. BMW doesn't bring the shorter version into the United States.

The 740i ($84,645) comes with a comprehensive list of standard equipment. This includes 18-in alloy wheels, full LED lighting inside and out, 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, a power sunshade for the rear window, soft-closing doors, 10-way power-adjustable/heated front seats with driver's-side memory settings, a 12.3-in driver information display, parking sensors front and rear, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, forward-collision warning, blind spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, Wi-Fi, wireless charging, a 10.2-in display, navigation, gesture control, two USB ports and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system with satellite/HD radio.

The 740e xDrive iPerformance ($92,245) adds the plug-in hybrid system and dedicated instruments.

The 750i ($97,945) has 19-in alloys, upgraded leather, a head-up display and 20-way multi-contour front seats. This model can also come with AWD, badged as the 750i xDrive.

An Autobahn options package 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 retractable footrests and fold-away tables, plus a dual-screen rear entertainment system and a tablet to control various car functions, surf the web or act as a games console (this is held in place by cool little power-retractable clips).

The M760i xDrive ($157,695) comes with the turbo V12, M Sport brakes, M suspension tune, 20-in alloy wheels, massaging front seats, Integral Active Steering and other features of the Autobahn package. 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 enthusiast-leaning Alpina B7 ($140,345) also includes the Autobahn package, Alpina-tuned suspension, special wheel designs and aerodynamic additions, powered side sunshades and massaging front seats.

Other options for the range include heated armrests/rear seats/steering wheel, a head-up display, a cabin fragrance system, multi-contour front seats, a 1,400-watt Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound system with 16 partially illuminated speakers, side-view and top-view cameras, remote control parking, plus night vision and further advanced protective features listed in the Safety section below.

Trunk space is a capacious 18.2 cu ft. in the regular models, 14.8 cu ft. in the 740e plug-in hybrid.

Is the 2019 BMW 740i 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.

Adaptive cruise control becomes available in the Driving Assistance Plus package that also has more "autonomous" technology with an Active Driving Assistant, active lane departure prevention and Traffic Jam Assist, bringing a virtual hand on the steering wheel.

This generation of 7 Series has not yet been crash tested in the U.S.

Competition

2019 BMW 740i vs the competition

2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class -- Utterly superb and packed with technology. The S-Class has always been the segment leader.

2019 Audi A8 -- All-new for 2019, tingling with technology in the service of both safety and luxury.

2018 Porsche Panamera -- Gorgeous interior, driving talent for days.

2019 Jaguar XJ -- Handsome and supple, with a mostly aluminum body. A new generation is expected soon.

2019 Lexus LS -- Comes with lots of features and the usual excellent built quality.

Used Bentley Flying Spur -- For that 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.
