When it comes to full-size luxury performance sedans, the BMW 7 Series has once again set the standard. No other vehicle comes equipped with more technology and performance features than the 740i, 740e, and the class-leading 750i xDrive sedan. With its classic and powerful lines, supremely luxurious cabin space and world-class exclusive technology features, no other luxury sedan can match the 7 Series for style or performance.
Here at BMW of Louisville, we’ve been thinking of how to best describe the amazing driving experience behind the wheel of a new 7 Series performance sedan. So, we’ve decided to take you on a virtual tour of Louisville’s Seneca Park, including a swing over to Cherokee Park along Beargrass Road and around the beautiful Scenic Loop.
Drive The Ultimate in Luxury Around Louisville
Our adventure starts as we approach the new BMW 750i xDrive for our outing. We first make note of the classic yet muscular lines that suggest an understated confidence and style. Next we take in the big and bold twin kidney grille, the sculpted creases, the ample chrome trim and the 19-inch double-spoke alloy wheels.
Stepping into our 7 Series sedan, we’re instantly enveloped in luxury. From the 20-way multi-contour diamond-stitched leather front seats to the four-zone automatic climate control and the massive 12.3-inch center touchscreen console, this is elegance at its finest. Push the keyless ignition button and listen to the 4.4-liter twin turbocharged engine roar to life. That satisfying purr comes from 445-horsepower that can propel the 750i from zero to sixty in just 4.3 seconds. Of course not today—we’re out for a leisurely drive around the park.
As we slip the 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission into drive, we feel raw power surging just under the surface as we pull out onto Pee Wee Reese Road and cruise past the links. The dual panoramic sun roof lets in the bright sunshine, while the cabin temperature remains at an even 72 degrees thanks to the four-zone automatic climate control. Turning onto Seneca Park Road we head toward Cherokee Park with the 16-speaker Bowers and Wilkins studio-grade audio system plays crisply and clearly throughout the cabin.
Next, our gesture-controlled navigation system tells us to turn onto Beargrass Road and continue through the connecting greenbelt to Cherokee Park. The superb handling of the Active Comfort Drive suspension is apparent through the turns, as we accelerate into them. The warm wood trim and rich leather compete for your senses with the fragranced air purification system and LED ambient lighting.
As we glide along the Scenic Loop, our rear seat passengers adjust their individual temperature zones using the 7-inch removable Touch Command tablet, which also adjusts their seating positions. No comfort has been overlooked in the new BMW 7 Series sedan.
Coming to the end of our little jaunt through Seneca Park, we realize that this may just have been the perfect afternoon drive. The 7 Series is elegant, comfortable, powerful and intuitive. The technology is both highly advanced and easy to use. The elegant cabin, sumptuous trim and supremely comfortable seats make this one of the most extraordinary driving experiences ever.
We hope you’ve enjoyed your virtual driving tour of the new BMW 7 Series through Seneca Park and beautiful Cherokee Park. If you’re interested in experiencing the spectacular 7 Series for yourself, please visit our showroom to see one in person. We guarantee you will be as impressed as we are with this elegant and powerful luxury performance sedan.
