Fabulous car! it's my 5th BMW from Fresno BMW

by DANELLE from FRESNO CA on Fri Jun 02 2017

My BMW is very luxurious, it drives like a dream. When you are on a trip it handles great and the ride is so good you still feel refreshed when you arrive at your destination. Tons of leg room and plenty of space for shopping ladies.

Close to the top

I switched from a MB S550 to the 740i. Car feels more sporty, less quiet, similar comfort. I had to rate reliability with 5 stars in order to send review. Yet, I cannot judge reliability when I have the car for only three weeks.

Despite being priced to match a comparably equipped gas-only model, the new plug-in hybrid version of BMW's excellent 7 Series sedan fails the cost-benefit test.

Versus the competition:

Well-realized plug-in hybrids are few, and the 2017 BMW 740e does little to change that, with the electric range of an obsolete generation; a key competitor already exceeds it.

Overall, the BMW 7 Series sedan is a great car — enough so that we named it Cars.com's 2017 Luxury Car of the Year. Much of what we like about the sedan, reflected in this 2016 review of the 750i, also applies to the plug-in-hybrid version I review below. The plug-in aspect, however, doesn't add much to our adoration for the whole series.

The plug-in hybrid electric version is officially named the 740e xDrive iPerformance, where the "e" represents electric; "xDrive" is BMW's general name for all-wheel drive, which is standard here. The "i" in iPerformance associates the car with BMW's more ambitious plug-in cars, the i3 and i8. Unfortunately, "i" is also the designation for... Read More
