2010 BMW 760 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
BMW’s flagship 7 Series is a full-size luxury sedan that competes with top-line sedans like the Audi A8, Jaguar XJ and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The V-8 7 Series comes in regular and extended lengths as the 750i and 750Li, respectively. For 2010, a V-12 engine and all-wheel drive are now available.

New for 2010
The 2010 7 Series adds a range-topping 760Li, available only in the extended-length configuration. Both the 750i and 750Li can now be had with BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive. The 760Li comes only with rear-wheel drive. There’s also a new M Sport Package with various cosmetic and suspension enhancements.

The 7 Series adopts more conservative styling than its predecessor; it’s also a bit larger. The optional M Sport Package augments the exterior with more aggressive lower bodywork, 19-inch wheels and darker Shadowline door and window trim.

Exterior features include:

  • Extended-length versions are 5.5 inches longer
  • Aluminum roof, doors, hood and front fenders for decreased weight
  • Optional high-beam assist automatically dims high beams for oncoming drivers
  • Standard xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Standard adaptive headlights move with steering wheel
  • 18-inch wheels
  • Optional M Sport Package with 19-inch wheels
  • Optional 20-inch wheels

Up to five occupants fit inside the 7 Series. An array of entertainment and comfort features are available. BMW’s iDrive system, which controls the navigation system, stereo, climate control and other functions, was revised last year in an effort to make it more user-friendly.

Interior features include:

  • 10.2-inch dashboard screen for iDrive
  • Four-zone climate control, including independent control for rear passengers
  • Optional rear Comfort seats have massage and ventilation features
  • Optional rear entertainment system with dual screens in head restraints
  • Optional head-up display
  • Optional night vision with pedestrian detection

Under the Hood
The 750’s 4.4-liter V-8 uses two turbochargers to deliver 400 horsepower and 450 pounds-feet of torque; it’s borrowed from the BMW X6, where it was initially introduced. The 760’s 6.0-liter V-12 also uses two turbochargers. It makes 535 hp and 550 pounds-feet of torque. With the V-8, BMW says its optional xDrive all-wheel drive can send up to 80 percent of power to the rear wheels if needed, keeping acceleration and handling traits similar to those of the rear-wheel-drive 7 Series.

  • Twin-turbocharged V-8 or V-12
  • Six-speed automatic transmission (V-8)
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission (V-12)
  • Rear- or all-wheel drive (750); rear-wheel drive (760)
  • Available Active Roll Stabilization (included with M Sport Package) actively counteracts body roll

Safety features include:

  • Standard first- and second-row side curtain airbags
  • Standard front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Standard knee airbags
  • Standard electronic stability system
  • Optional lane departure warning system
  • Optional blind spot detection system
