2014 BMW 7-Series

Pros: Outstanding ride quality; broad range of powertrain choices, including a hybrid model; loads of high-tech optional features available

Cons: Steep prices get steeper as options are added; large, powerful engines have expectedly large appetites for fuel; lots of gadgetry makes for some complicated controls

CG Says: BMW’s flagship big sedans boast executive-jet levels of comfort, sophistication, and power… with price tags to match. The worthwhile updates for 2014 include a digital gauge cluster, a touchpad for text input that supplements the iDrive control knob, and a motion-activated smart-closing trunk. The 2014 7-Series is well worth your consideration, with the Alpina B7 being an especially attractive option for those who value exclusivity and sporty driving dynamics.
