BMW has taken the wraps off the new 7 Series facelift which has received some major design tweaks. Well! They say the bigger, the better but BMW has taken it too seriously this time. The most apparent of all the design changes is the massive kidney grille which is 40 per cent larger than the one on the outgoing model. It looks too imposing and straight out of the X7 without a bit of shredding and appears to be obnoxious as imposing is not what you want on a sedan. The new bumper now gets a narrow ‘V’ above the air dam to incorporate the grille making just about the area to fit in the number plate. Though the sides of the bumper look more beautiful in the way they have been moulded deeper into the overhangs.
That said, the rest of the design has been kept rather conventional and is still relatable to the outgoing model. The headlights still look sleek and go well with the long bonnet which now looks a tad more sculpted and has even gained muscle along with the fenders. The side looks almost similar to the outgoing model and there have been subtle changes in the design at the rear. For instance, the taillights which are 1.4 inches slimmer are now adjoined with a slim strip that runs the width of the boot lid.
