Rental BMW 7er G11 / 12 – fight on equal terms

15.07.2016
Rental BMW 7er G11 / 12 will give you lots of impressions. We rented the BMW seventh series, and it was a worthy alternative to the Mercedes S-Class. However, the Bavarian sedan is more dynamic.

High demand always creates supply. Competition in the executive sedan segment is high. Therefore, manufacturers should put substantial effort to keep their positions on the market.

The new Mercedes S-Klasse W222 made its competitors feel nervous, especially BMW. The Bavarians didn’t want to give away the laurels to the new player, so they decided to make a luxury sedan to compete with Mercedes. Let’s rent a car without a driver and go ahead.

Exterior

The BMW G12 seventh series looks presentable and aggressive. Compared to its predecessor F01, the new design became more rapid and thoughtful. The sedan became lighter visually. Now, it looks like the legendary BMW 7er E38.

Interior

There are lots of high technologies in the interior – for example, the iDrive system. There is an ability to connect to the Internet and cameras on the body’s perimeter. Also, there are plenty of settings: interior lights, response to the gas pedal, speed of the automatic transmission, and so on. The BMW’s experts invented a new thing – a control system based on hand gestures. Its work principle is similar to mobile devices. Using your finger, you can turn pages, zoom, etc. But you don’t need to touch the screen. We should also mention a key-fob with a color display. It displays all necessary information about the car’s condition. Also, you can control some functions with this key-fob.

The rear seat is more narrow than the Mercedes S-Klasse has. However, there is enough space for two passengers. The folding center armrest is equipped with electric seat adjustments (headrest, backrest, and cushion), heating, ventilation, and a sensor media control. The trunk with convex side walls is 515 liters. It isn’t suitable for transporting large luggage, but it’s enough for two suitcases.

Filling

The BMW G12 seventh series is equipped with:

  • a 3.0-liter diesel engine (265bhp or 320bhp);
  • a 3.0-liter petrol engine or 4.4-liter engine (326bhp and 450bhp);
  • a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Due to these engines, the car is dynamic. This large sedan can easily compete with sport hatchbacks at the traffic lights. However, driving isn’t sharp. Handling is very clear and responsive, but you can’t maneuver actively because of the long wheelbase.

Level of driving comfort is high. Driving is smooth on any surface. Due to the excellent soundproofing, you can easily chat without raising your voice while driving at 200kmph. Perhaps this is the most comfortable seventh series in the whole history of this model.

Test drive results

We managed to rent a car in Moscow without any trouble. Now, it’s time to summarize. The BMW seventh series is a worthy alternative to the Mercedes S-Class. However, the Bavarian sedan is more dynamic.
