BMW 7 series features and functions

By this time, you would think that BMW doesn’t have much to really improve upon. And then the brand comes up with something to simply astound you, and delight you, in equal measure!

The new 7 series by BMW has been the talk of the town, and for good reason. This short video recounts some of the best new features of the new BMW. And we are sure there are more that probably couldn’t be fitted into the video.

In the new BMW 7 Series, the iDrive operating system’s monitor comes in touch display form for the first time. You can now operate the system in the same way as smartphones. Another new addition is BMW gesture control. Hand movements are detected by a 3D sensor control in an extremely intuitive and user-friendly fashion. The gestures can be used for a number of functions, including controlling the volume in audio applications and accepting or rejecting incoming telephone calls. The new parking function with a remote key in excellent for ‘tight’ positions.

Electrically adjustable comfort seats with massage function in the rear and Active seat ventilation for all seats adds comfort. The Executive Lounge rear console houses a fold-out table, additional cupholders and the Touch Command system. This removable 7-inch tablet computer allows you to control the infotainment and comfort functions available in the rear of the new BMW 7 Series and can also be used to play back external audio and video files, as a games console or to surf the internet. Ambient scent and lighting options are spectacular. 

You have to experience it to believe it! For now, we are satisfying ourselves with the video.
