An overview of the 2018 BMW 7 Series
As BMW’s entry to the ever-competitive full-size sedan market, the 7 Series has some huge shoes to fill, considering that previous iterations of this nameplate have proven to be popular in Egypt and beyond. The 2018 BMW 7 Series is still one of the most popular cars in Egypt and the industry standard in its class.
Fresh off a full redesign in 2016, the exterior of the 2018 version of the 7 Series contains very minimal changes. Compared to previous generations of the 7 Series, this model has only one available wheelbase, a wheelbase that is 2 inches longer than its main rival, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S Class. It’s hard not to like the current 7 Series’ cutting-edge looks, which may be a glimpse of what the future holds for big luxury sedans.

The interior clearly benefits from the long wheelbase. BMW bathes the interior with the latest technologies available at their disposal. An LED “light carpet” welcomes you as you approach the car. Inside, there is loads of headroom and legroom in both the front and rear seats. There are great details such as wood-trimmed seat belts, heated armrests, and multi-contour seats that will show you that this car is means business.
The 2018 BMW 7 Series comes with a long list of standard features including 18-inch wheels with run-flat tires, adaptive headlights, automatic windshield wipers, auto-dimming, keyless entry, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, and 4-zone climate control, just to name a few. Safety features include antilock brakes, traction control, and an armada of airbags. When it comes to technology, BMW’s big bad sedan is dripping with it; massaging leather seats, interior mood lighting, even a night vision camera!

Currently, the only available engine in the Egypt product line of the 7 Series is the 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 engine. This motor has a maximum output of 320 horsepower. Other engines, ranging from a hybrid motor to a V12, might be introduced in the future. This powerful motor is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 7 Series comes standard with rear-wheel drive, with 4-wheel drive available as an option.
The 2018 BMW 7 Series aims to be the go-to full size luxury sedan in Egypt. It is now up to the competition to step up their game up and keep up.
