While the 2016 BMW 7 Series may not appear to be that different on the outside, this new iteration ramps up the luxury, comfort and technological features to make the driving experience more enjoyable. Another interesting feature is that it is much lighter than its predecessors. Using new lighter carbon core fiber materials allows these cars to remain their power and responsiveness yet reduce the heavy feel and handling of the automobile. This construction feature also gives the car a lower center of gravity. Additional packages allow consumers to tailor their car based on their driving styles, preferred level of comfort and preferred technological features. One feature, the Rear Executive Lounge Seating Package is a favorite among limousine companies and busy business people who frequently use drivers.
