2021 BMW 7-Series Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.9

 The 2021 BMW 7 Series has a stylish interior with quality materials in most areas, though the cabin isn’t quite as lavish as that of some top rivals. On the plus side, the infotainment system is mostly easy to use, there’s generous seating space and cargo room, and the interior is very quiet.

  • "… the latest 7-series affords occupants the bandwidth to notice build quality, materials, and design that are merely average for this rich class." -- Car and Driver
  • "The build quality is top-notch and refined, with exceptional-quality materials throughout." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Fine leather, smooth wood trims, and elegant metallic accents adorn the cabin of the BMW 7 Series right from the 740i, adding plushness as we ascend the levels." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Cargo

The standard BMW 7 Series has 18.2 cubic feet of trunk space, which is great for a super luxury car, though the plug-in-hybrid variant only has 14.8 cubic feet of cargo space. The trunk is roomy enough for a few carry-on suitcases or a couple golf bags. A hands-free power trunk lid comes standard.

  • "Volumetrically speaking, the BMW's trunk has competitors such as the Cadillac CT6 and the G90 licked. Its 18-cubic-foot trunk is at least two cubic feet larger than the trunks of those sedans, but the reality of packing it with real-world-size carry-on bags reveals a different outcome. We could only fit three of our carry-on suitcases inside the trunk of our 740i test vehicle, whereas the others held twice as many." -- Car and Driver
  • "There's a generous trunk and sufficient small-item storage, but neither is exceptional. The 7 Series certainly isn't a class leader in this area, especially with the 740e, whose battery pack impinges on the trunk." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Generous trunk space of 18.2 cubic feet (14.8 in the plug-in hybrid) can be accessed by moving a foot under the rear bumper and letting the powered lid do the rest." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)

Seating

The BMW 7 Series has five seats and comes standard with leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable front seats, heated front armrests, a heated steering wheel, and a rear window sunshade. Available features include ventilated and massaging front seats, heated and ventilated rear seats with massage functions, and rear side window sunshades.

The front seats are comfortable, supportive, and spacious, even for taller occupants. The rear seats provide even better accommodations, especially when equipped with the optional rear center console and foot rest.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats and a tether anchor for the rear middle seat.

  • "There's massive room front and rear, and the Rear Executive Lounge Seating package is so first class that a tray table even folds out of the center console." -- Car and Driver (2020)
  • "This is a comfortable, spacious full-size luxury sedan that would be a pleasure to drive on long roads and offers an effortless way to cover hundreds of miles at a stretch." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "Interior space is outstanding, and the Executive Package coddles rear seat passengers in reclining, massaging, heated-and-cooled comfort with tons of legroom." -- Autoweek (2020)

Interior Features

BMW 7 Series standard features include a 10.2-inch touch screen, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, navigation, Apple CarPlay, voice and gesture recognition, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, HD Radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth, two USB ports, wireless device charging, and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

The 7 Series’ touch-screen infotainment system works well, thanks to its simple menus and redundant physical controls. The hand gesture recognition system and "Hey BMW" voice assistant tend to misunderstand commands or miss them altogether though. Apple CarPlay is offered, but Android Auto is not.

Other standard features include proximity keyless entry, push-button start, remote start, power soft-close doors, quad-zone automatic climate control, and a panoramic moonroof.

Standard safety features include front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, hands-free park assist, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive LED headlights, and automatic high-beam headlights.

Available features include a rear-seat entertainment system with two 10-inch touch screens and a tablet, a Bowers & Wilkins sound system, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and remote control automated parking.

  • "BMW's iDrive infotainment system has … become a straightforward, attractive interface. The latest version, dubbed iDrive 7.0, can be manipulated via touchscreen or a quick and intuitive control on the center console." -- Car and Driver
  • "BMW's Intelligent Personal Assistant artificial intelligence system arrives in the 7 Series, too, giving you yet another way to adjust things like climate and entertainment settings. Saying, 'Hey, BMW' activates the AI, which you can then ask to change radio stations, navigate to a destination or give vehicle information such as fuel range and tire pressures. Further refinement is clearly needed, as I found the system on many occasions didn't respond to the voice prompt or understand instructions. It maybe worked half the time throughout my day of testing." -- CNET (2020)
  • "The controls are easy to locate and use, and the iDrive technology interface continues to improve." -- Edmunds (2019)
