3 Changes We Can Expect From The 2020 BMW 7-Series

Maybe the current lineup of the BMW 7-Series is the most technologically-advanced, but experts and even BMW fans have pointed out their disappointment over the exterior styling and the rather boring interior. Remember, once the options have been added, this is a six-figure car.

Even without those options, the 7-Series is luxury in every sense. People, however, are having a hard time differentiating it from the lesser 5-Series. Luckily, there is mid-cycle update happening right now and this will introduce substantial changes to the series.

1. New Face For The 7-Series

A prototype of the new 7-Series has been spotted by MotorAuthority while it was being tested around. Although wrapped in camouflage, we can still see some of the updates we should expect once the new 7-Series arrives. From what it looks like, the 7-Series will launch a new face with new headlights, a new hood, and a more imposing grille.

These changes to the front end of the car will likely be more significant compared to the rear end, which will have a new pair of taillights.

2. Special Interior For The 7-Series

BMW wants to make the 7-Series more special, which means that passengers and the driver have to feel the luxury and elegance as soon as they enter the car. The interior will be made more plush and it will sit alongside the i8 and the upcoming X7 and 8-Series models.

3. Fresh Tech Packed In The 7-Series

There will be updates on the tech, too. The Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant has been added to the new 7-Series, and we can expect to see it on all new BMW vehicles, most of which will debut early next year. We might even see more advanced self-driving capabilities for the 7-Series since BMW is working closely with Here, Intel, and Mobileye for their self-driving technology.

As for powertrain, there is no word on that, though we will see a second plug-in hybrid option together with the current 740e iPerformance.

5 Things To Watch Out For In The New 2018 BMW 4-Series

BMW 4-Series (4)

It’s that time of the year again when BMW gives its range of luxury vehicles a little refresh and update. This time, it’s for the 4-Series, which included the 4-Series, the 4-Series convertible, the 4-Series Gran Coupe, and the high-performance M4 and M4 convertible.

The changes will be introduced for the upcoming 4-Series to be released next year. Don’t expect the changes to be drastic, though, because they are nothing but cosmetic updates. These changes follow the same path trudged on by the 3-Series.

1. Exterior

From the outside, the changes are quote noticeable, especially if you are looking at those new LED headlights and foglights. There’s also the revised bumpers that give more credence to new available colors such as Snapper Rocks Blue and Sunset Orange.

2. Interior

Inside, the changes will depend on the trim you will purchase. The updates, we’re sure, are minimal, though the higher-end trim models may receive a bulk of the upgrades. On the instrument panel, you’ll find double stitching, which appears to be standard across the range. The infotainment system’s menu has also been revised.

3. Powertrain

There is no confirmation yet about the powertrains that will be made available in the United States. Don’t expect any major change, though, because BMW has just added new engines to the 4-Series for the 2017 model-year.

This means we can expect to see a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 in the base 430i. This can produce 248 horsepower. Next on the line is the turbocharged 3,0-liter inline-6 that can produce 320 horsepower. The option falls between a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. You may also choose between an all-wheel or a four-wheel drive.

4. Rivals

In terms of competition, the luxury M4 will go head-to-head with the Cadillac ATS-V Coupe and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe.

5. Pricing

There are no details about the pricing yet, but speculations suggest that the 4-Series could go up as high as $43,145.
