2020 BMW 7-Series Teaser Confirms Our Massive Grille Fears Ahead Of Tomorrow’s Reveal

We’re only a few hours away from being officially introduced to the facelifted BMW 7-Series.

Don’t go looking for it at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, as BMW, along with other companies like Audi and Mercedes-Benz, has chosen not to attend this year’s edition. Instead, they will present it during a special event hosted internally, at BMW Welt.

The unveiling of the car is set for January 16, and despite the recent leaks, BMW released another new teaser image. It partially reveals the front end which dominated by a gigantic kidney grille that’s inspired by the one used on the X7 SUV. The image also partially reveals the slimmer headlamps and restyled bumper as well.

We already saw the 2020 7-Series on a couple of occasions these past few weeks. Thus, we know what to expect in terms of exterior design. Also, our vigilant spy photographers managed to snap the cabin as well, which will feature an updated infotainment system and redesigned instrument cluster, among others.

One of the biggest enigmas so far is the engine lineup. Still, previous reports revealed that it will be powered by the usual assortment of petrol and diesel units in Europe, some of them coming from the 8-Series and X7. North America will miss out on oil burners completely.

Further down the road, the revised 7-Series family will be completed by the plug-in hybrid model. It’s been said that it will be more powerful than the outgoing 740e xDrive, which has a total output of 322 hp and sprints to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 5.1 seconds.

    Looks way better than the A8.

    In my (14 years) of life, i have never, ever seen a grille so needlessly big on a car. The only reason the girlle is so big is so you can tell it apart from the 5 series and the A8, and all the other luxo-barges.
