In 2015, the next-generation BMW 7-Series will be introduced as the German firm’s answer to the increasingly-popular Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Numerous prototypes have been spied testing in recent months and now a member over at BMW Blog has rendered how the new 7-Series could look.
From a visual standpoint, the 2016 BMW 7-Series featured includes a thoroughly revised front fascia. That new fascia incorporates redesigned headlights, new fog lights, a selection of chrome accents for the air intakes and kidney grille as well as a new bumper. Further changes compared to the existing 7-Series include the installation of a more aggressive bonnet with a prominent crease running down the side of the German luxury sedan also featuring.
Beyond the styling changes, we know that the 2016 BMW 7-Series will adopt a new chassis combining both aluminium and carbon fibre and could weigh 204 kg less than the outgoing platform. Additionally, recent rumours have suggested that the next-generation BMW 7-Series will adopt the German marque’s new range of inline six-cylinder engines as part of BMWs new modular engine architecture.
This new engine architecture includes three, four and six-cylinder powertrains both coming in petrol and diesel derivatives. These new engines are promising to not only be more refined than the current BMW engines on the market but will provide even more impressive performance capabilities.
