Unremarkable handling, complicated controls.
Though it's comfortable and laden with technology, the large 7 Series is no longer the crisp, sporty luxury car it once was. Handling lacks agility, and the long-wheelbase 750Li we tested didn't shine at its limits. The ride is steady and supple but isn't as cushy as that of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class or Lexus LS. The 400-hp turbo V8 is smooth, refined, and punchy. Many controls are complex and frustrating to use. On the up side, the roomy cabin is super-quiet and impeccably finished, and seat comfort is tops. A 315-hp six-cylinder, a 535-hp V12, and a hybrid V8 are also available.
