1995 BMW 7-Series Review
A flagship among flagships.
Reviewed by Automotive on
The 1995 BMW 7-Series is the most luxurious sedan option within BMW’s flagship line of vehicles. The 7-Series is a very well-appointed luxury vehicle. While the 8-Series is technically a higher-end model, it is also a smaller-sized coupe with a fairly similar features list. The higher cost of the 8 Series is due primarily to enhanced performance, not additional comfort features. The interior of the 7-Series is also larger. Thus, even for drivers with unlimited funds, the 7-Series can still be a more attractive option over the higher-end 8 Series.
The BMW 7-Series is priced as a luxury vehicle, so only drivers interested in this level of vehicle should consider it. Even with standard equipment, the base 7-Series model is a well-equipped vehicle with a powerful engine. It is an upper-tier vehicle for BMW, so drivers considering the BMW 5-Series, but are willing to spend more money, should check this vehicle out. The 7-Series has a more limited amount of variance than some of the other BMW series lines, but what it does offer is very high quality.
Engines: 4.0-liter eight-cylinder, 5.4-liter twelve-cylinder
Transmissions: five-speed manual, four-speed automatic, six-speed manual
Models: BMW 740i, BMW 740iL, BMW 750iL
The 1995 BMW 7-Series is redesigned in almost every respect.
Unlike some other BMW lines, the 1995 BMW 7-Series is only available as a sedan. The BMW 7-Series is a fairly large sedan, and quite typical in size for a near-luxury vehicle. This is actually a little unusual, since BMW vehicles tend to gravitate towards the smaller side of the scale. The classy aesthetic expected from BMW graces the 7-Series, making it a very attractive vehicle.
The 1995 BMW 7-Series has a larger interior than most other BMW vehicles. Air-conditioning, dual-zone automatic climate control, power heated mirrors, power locks, power windows, a power moon roof, power seats, cruise control, a trip computer, power seats, leather trim, wood shift knob trim, an anti-theft alarm system, keyless entry, leather seating, an AM/FM radio, and a cassette player all come as standard equipment. A CD player, CD changer, heated seats, a premium audio system, and a cellular phone are available as optional features.
Performance & Handling
The BMW 7-Series has excellent handling and performance. All engine options provide quick acceleration and a very high top speed. The base engine for the 7-Series is the same engine used on the higher-end 5-Series models, so drivers can expect any 7-Series model to perform as well, if not better, than a 5-Series vehicle. The BMW 7-Series also offers great handling.
Dual-front airbags and four-wheel anti-lock brakes are standard features on all 1995 BMW 7-Series models. Traction control and stability control are also available as optional features, which is somewhat unusual for a 1995 vehicle. Overall, the BMW 7-Series is above-average compared to many other 1995 near-luxury models, in terms of safety features.
