from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 BMW 7 Series?

The 2019 BMW 7 Series is a full-size luxury sedan that seats up to five. The lineup consists of the six-cylinder 740i and the V-8-powered 750i. An M performance version is also available, as is an Alpina B7 performance model. A plug-in hybrid 740e is also available; it features all-wheel drive and pairs a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an electric motor.

The 740i and 750i are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. The M760i has all-wheel drive, as does the B7. Competitors include the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Audi A8 and Lexus LS. An updated 7 Series debuts as a 2020 model.

What’s New on the 2019 BMW 7 Series?

Standard active safety features include blind spot warning, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, city collision mitigation and rear cross-traffic alert. A one-year trial of Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity is also standard.

What Features in the 2019 BMW 7 Series Are Most Important?

Standard luxury features include an air suspension, a power trunk lid, soft-closing doors, a panoramic moonroof, a power rear sunshade, four-zone automatic air conditioning and a digital instrument cluster. Available features include massaging front seats, a head-up display and a 360-degree camera system.

Should I Buy the 2019 BMW 7 Series?

The 7 Series is nimble, quick and comfortable, with a supremely luxurious interior. The car’s ability to recognize certain gestures is a bit gimmicky, but with so many versions from which to choose, you should be able to find a 7 Series that’s right for you.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
