What’s New for the 2016 BMW 7 Series?

The 2016 BMW 7 Series is almost 200 pounds lighter than the 2015 model, making it more nimble on the road and more fuel efficient. Aerodynamics have also been thoroughly reexamined, and the 2016 model is longer than before. The all-wheel drive 750i xDrive trim’s V8 engine has also been reworked, along with much of the infotainment and rear seat comfort options.
