BMW 7-Series rivals

This BMW 7-Series may look less controversial than the model that was launched in 2002, but that doesn't mean that it's any less revolutionary. There are no carry-over components from the previous car and this 7-Series has a softer and more elegant look to it. There are new engines that bring emissions to a new low and - for the first time - it's possible to buy a model that emits less than 200g/km of CO2 - the same as some much smaller family cars.

Inside, every car comes with satellite navigation and is elegantly finished with top quality materials. The high-tech gadgets available on the options list have a Tomorrow's World flavour to them, with night vision, head-up display and a side-view camera offered.
