The next-generation 2016 BMW 7-Series has been spied during the car’s latest round of winter testing in the heart of Sweden.
Despite a prototype recently being snapped completely undisguised, this car still features heavy camouflage across the exterior but thanks to previous photos, we now how the latest-gen 7-Series will look.
Up front, the 2016 BMW 7-Series will feature an entirely new fascia alongside redesigned headlights which can be ordered with BMW’s new laserlight technology. The side lines have also been heavily revised while at the rear, the evolutionary new design becomes even more apparent. Sleek taillights can be found alongside a prominent chrome accent and slimlined chrome tailpipes.
In the cabin, the 2016 BMW 7-Series will be very similar to the outgoing car and that it will feature traditional analog dials rather than a large LCD screen like used by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class for the gauge cluster.
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.
