New Spy Photos: 2013 BMW 7 Series Facelift
The spy photographer from Car Forum CZ spotted the upcoming 2013 BMW 7 Series facelift.
We typically start our evaluation with the exterior design, but this time, let’s have a seem within. For the very first time, we have the chance to see redesigned gauges that will be made available in the facelifted 7er. The other important alter, not proven in these spy shots, is the introduction of a new iDrive method. Whilst the overall notion behind the iDrive stays unchanged, the primary addition to the system is a touchpad surface positioned on top of iDrive knob. The touchpad, related to the Audi method, will allow the driver and passenger to simply enter numbers and characters by means of gestures with no looking at the program.
Moving outdoors the auto, the F01 and F02 7er LCI models will characteristic full LED headlights that have been redesigned to seem sleeker and are smaller sized in size. Hidden underneath the camouflage is a new eyebrow which now hosts the turn signal indicator. The taillights remained unchanged but are slightly darker in colour than the current model.
All 7 Series LCI models will get the signal indicator integrated into the side mirrors.
BMW will introduce a new model in the 7 Series family. The 750xd will have the same three liter tri-turbo diesel engine as witnessed in the just lately unveiled M550d, X5 M50d and X6 M50d. The engine creates 381 horsepower.
The U.S. entry-degree model, the 740i will change its engine to the N55B30 which creates 320 horsepower. The 750i will now use the N63B44TU powerplant that creates 450 horsepower. BMW 760i stays the best model in the lineup.
The facelfited BMW 7 Series will go on sale this July and we believe BMW will unveil the 7 Series LCI at the upcoming Beijing Motor Display.
