Most Important Features on BMW's 750Li (G12)
|   Friday, February 24, 2017
In the old days it was enough for a luxury car manufacturer to offer leather seats, quality finishes and maybe a slightly larger engine to make the difference compared to conventional models.

The BMW 750Li model is top line, no doubt, but it has characteristics both the driver and passengers would have wanted on a Rolls-Royce just a few years ago. So, let's take a closer look at what those characteristics are exactly.

1. Starting the Car
Prior to spinning the ignition key (actually you start it by pushing a button), look carefully at the key.
It's probably the most modern gadget you've ever seen, called Display Key and is in fact, an app on the smartphone.
We find the usual buttons on it, locked / unlocked or panic, but you can set the climate from it, or see if you've locked the car and if the windows are closed.

2. Quality Leather
You can talk endlessly about the inside technology but when it comes to luxury, the classic features are the ones that matter. Maybe it does not have the same quality as a Rolls-Royce (brand owned by BMW GmbH too), but the leather on this model is fantastic.
The seats are sensational and the carpet makes you remove your shoes before climbing behind the wheel. Other details, like chrome or wood inserts, are just the icing on the cake.

3. Professional Sound
16 speakers and 1400 W. Even the name, "Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System" sounds like something exquisite and elitist.

4. Front Display
Maybe the rear passengers will have screens and technology, but the front side is just as well represented. It is completely digital and of course customizable. The IDrive display is large and of high quality - even the climate control is digitized.

5. Comfort and Technology Behind the Car
Each passenger has their own monitor measuring 43 centimeters and also a Samsung tablet that can be used to control the climate. You can watch movies or browse the Internet, but the monitors cannot be handled like the tablet, nor do they have touch capabilities.

6. The Rear Seats
Besides the exceptional cabin space, rear passengers enjoy various ways to relax. The rear seats have recreation areas for feet, can expand and even perform massages.
The most important thing in a 750Li is total privacy. Three special screens separate the passenger from the outside world. Let's not forget the carpet that seems worthy of a royal palace.

7. The New iDrive Touch
For the first time ever, the BMW iDrive interface touch-based, no longer relying on a controller. Moreover, this BMW model has what is called "Gesture Control".

8. Customizing the Driving Experience
A BMW, no matter how big, is never lacking a dynamic and customizable dashboard. You can adjust the dampers, steering, transmission and engine as you desire.

9. Almost Self-Driving, Almost...
Maybe not there yet, but the multitude of onboard gadgets help enormously. Support for maintaining direction, frontal or side collision sensors, all transform driving into an extremely comfortable experience.
The 750Li comes with automatic parking, but this feature is available, at least for now only for certain markets.

10. Size
"Li" means that the wheelbase of this model is longer (it has a smaller variant for the European market). Specifically, it has 140 extra mm for the axle and 75 mm more legroom. Front passengers feel no difference, not that it was needed, but the rear enjoys more space than would be expected otherwise.
