BMW is working on a refreshed version of the 7-Series, which will be launched in the European market sometime next year. Before that happens though, we've got a glimpse of what can be expected from the BMW 7-Series facelift, and as the Motor1 images suggest, the German marque's flagship sedan will only undergo some mild cosmetic updates. It is expected to make a public debut by the end of this year, and eventually, after having been launched in Europe next year, BMW will launch the updated 7-Series in India as well. Competing against the Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 2019 BMW 7-Series is expected to remain the same under the bonnet. The refreshed BMW 7 Series should debut later this year as a 2019 model, with production beginning next spring.
Considering the camouflage only covering the front and the rear end of the car, we expect a new face with a new set of headlamps and a redesigned grille. Expect a new set of taillights as well and slightly redesigned rear bumper. The current 7 Series is only a couple years old, though BMW is certainly keen to keep pace with Mercedes-Benz and Audi, both of which revealed new flagship sedans recently.
On the inside, the BMW 7-Series facelift is expected to come with a redesigned dashboard and a fully digital instrument console. Not many details are confirmed so far, but there may be a new glass-cockpit design. Besides convenience, there may be additional safety features and driver assistance systems. It is being speculated that the refreshed 7-Series may come with level 3 autonomous capability as well, bringing it at par with the Audi A8.
2019 BMW 7-Series facelift will continue to be powered by the same engine, however, an addition of a plug-in hybrid variant is also likely. Engines will be carried forward over from the current model, though horsepower upgrades throughout the lineup are expected.
