It was less than a week ago that we were wondering if those initial leaked images were the real deal, depicting a wide variety of facelifted 7-Series models wearing predominantly white exteriors. Newsflash, as these photos prove, they were.
Today, we have a grey 750Li long-wheelbase model to show you, and the image quality isn’t as bad as before either, which is great seen as how we also have a shot of the interior now. Still, it’s that massive grille that steals the show, for better or worse.
No more blending in
Say what you will about the size of the kidney grille on the 2020 7-Series, but if BMW’s plan was to have the car stand out more than it used to, then mission accomplished. The sheer size of it definitely gives the restyled 7er more road presence, although that’s not the same as saying that it actually looks good – we’ll leave that up to you to decide.
At the back, the taillights have been completely redesigned, even though it may not seem like it at first. Look carefully however and you’ll notice that they aren’t as bulky anymore, and have sharper edges, not unlike those found on the latest 3-Series.
All-digital, all the time
The gauge cluster has also been redesigned, and it appears to be the same 12.3-inch one used inside the new 8-Series. The rest of the cabin appears largely the same, although various software upgrades are to be expected.
As for the car’s engine range, it should hold both petrol and diesel options for Europe (like before), with North America abstaining from going anywhere near the oil burners.
Aside from the 750Li model, we also have two leaked images of the M760Li version courtesy of the Lux Vehicles Instagram page. They don’t show much, but the car’s black exterior accents are visible both at the front as well as at the rear.
The official unveiling of the 2020 BMW 7-Series facelift will take place tomorrow, January 16.
