BMW has just upped the opulence game in the luxury car market with the launch of its fifth generation 7 Series model. The most apparent changes on the newer model in 2013 can be seen on the front end and these include the new LED headlights and kidney grille, a revised front bumper, side indicators and a thin classy chrome strip connecting the two slim reflectors in the rear apron. 

 

But inside this refurbished German luxury limousine is where you really want to be all day long. The front seats are now narrower and offer a more airy feel to the cabin. A new high-end 1,200 watt Bang and Olufsen high end surround sound system with 16 speakers adds a nice touch and makes all your in car entertainment that much more pulsating. Apart from that, the 7 Series retains its quintessential luxury DNA including the long hood and set back passenger cabin (Read : New BMW 7 Series First Drive).
