    The S-class is best in class, that class being the S-class.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    I guess... Right? It's not as though one would be unhappy with any of the 4, really. They are just different. I don't think the A8 is not great, per se.

    Facelift 2019


    The updated 7 Series models were unveiled on 16 January 2019 as 2020 model year cars. Notable changes of the facelift include a larger kidney grille shared with the X7 (40 percent larger than the outgoing model) and sleeker headlights with optional laser headlights. The V8 models and the hybrid models were updated and a new hands-free driving system which operates under certain conditions was added to the range.

    The new front is accompanied by a more prominent front fascia and a power dome on the bonnet. The rear of the car now has LED tail lamps joined by a central stripe and a new rear bumper. Other exterior changes include new optional 20-inch wheels.

    Updates to the interior include a new 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch infotainment screen. A new voice assistant is also added to the infotainment system along with the BMW iDrive system 7.0 with updated graphics and menus. The main technological feature is the Extended Traffic Jam Assistant which allows the driver to leave the steering wheel at speeds up to 56 km/h (35 mph) during urban city driving. The system manages steering, acceleration and braking of the car and cameras ensure that the driver pays attention on the road.

    The turbocharged B58 inline-6 as utilised in the 740i/740Li is now rated at 290 kW (389 hp) and 450 N⋅m (332 lb⋅ft) of torque.

    The 750i/750Li now shares the same engine enhancements as the M850i which now generates a power output of 390 kW (523 hp) and 750 N⋅m (553 lb⋅ft) of torque. The rear-wheel-drive option for the 750i/750Li was discontinued, making the 740i/740Li the only model to be available with optional rear-wheel-drive.

    The 740e/740Le hybrid model was discontinued in favour of the updated 745e/745Le iPerformance. The 745e/745Le iPerformance uses a turbocharged inline-6 engine shared with the X5 xDrive45e. The new engine combined with electric motors generates a power output of 290 kW (389 hp) and 599 N⋅m (442 lb⋅ft) of torque. A new 12 kW⋅h battery pack is employed for the electric motors to increase the electric range.

    The M760Li xDrive oversaw a decrease in engine power output to 447 kW (599 hp), although the engine benefited from torque increased to 850 N⋅m (627 lb⋅ft) for the US model. The engine in the European model generates a power output of 430 kW (577 hp).
    The updated 7 Series models went on sale in April 2019.

    Say what you will about BMW design, but it has been very flattering to the outgoing models for the last two decades! I remember really disliking the E9x models until they were replaced; now I only think they're a bit bland and ugly in an inoffensive way.

    EDIT: I've been back in LA for a spell with a much more-varied (and more-expensive) selection of cars to look at than in Connecticut and have seen a surprising number of Alpinas (as well as an X5 M on semislicks for some reason) and am always amazed how much worse they look that the cars off which they're based, despite the changes being relatively minor. It's almost as if the Motor Works' in-house designers have been studying Alpinas to inspire their mid-cycle refreshes and new models.
