Three engine options are anticipated for the new generation BMW 7 Series built for the Indian market. This most certainly includes the in-line, 3.0-liter, 300PS diesel. Additionally, a 3.0 litre straight-six petrol engine with 380PS and a 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 engine with 544PS will be available.
The car's interior features a 14.9-inch touchscreen entertainment system and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster. It has a brand-new steering wheel with a flat bottom, touch-sensitive controls on the centre console, a gear selector, and the standard iDrive controller.
The new model's enormous 31-inch 8K roof-mounted theatre screen and 5.5-inch touchscreens located on the rear door handles are among its attractions. With the push of a button, the movie screen swings down from the roof and has online connectivity so you can watch your favourite shows while you're on the go. With stunning details, leather upholstery, modern materials, and a variety of textures, the interior is further spruced up. Four of the 18 in-car speakers that come standard in the new 7 Series and i7 are built into the headliner to provide complete 4D audio functionality.
