2020 BMW 7 series: more...



What a tragic mistake.
Trying to make the 7 series sedan into an X7 SUV really does not work.
Not only that ghastly grille. But they also added a larger, more upright piece of chrome on the side fender. Again, one that looks like the X7.

Let's just hope this won't work for them...

Honestly who cares. BMW is so irrelevant these days. Let them fade into obscurity.

It looks like an old Kia design

Baby's got back, only it's on the front :)

That front end just looks hideous and out of proportion, nothing in the BMW stable excites anymore.

Aaaahhhhh!!!.... Maybe it is gasping for air? ... as a metaphor for the dying internal combustion engine being replaced by electrics, this kinda works...

Or.... it is trying to scoop up food particles as it drives... like those ugly fish that swim with their mouths wide open....

Or... a new movie set piece for a remake of "Christine" or "Death Race 2000".... or a polished executive version of Mad Max, where Bimmers and Lexi battle one another with their gaping maws....

I couldn't agree more, Vince.

It looks like they grafted an SUV front end onto a sedan, like a joke mashup. Sadly, I suspect that 7 series buyers will turn a blind eye and that the look will end up infecting the rest of the lineup. Time will tell.

damn, all it needs as a Buick badge. It looks absolutely awful.

I like the new 7 series "bigger" size kidney grill better then then current model small size kidney grill. It gives it more bold presents!

Well, the headlights are cooler, but that's about it.

Side mirrors are gray or satin chrome?

Is it just me, or is that fake fender chrome venty thing fading into a rounded-edge line that looks suspiciously like the ones on the RR Ghost and Phantom? IS BMW slowly going to start homogenizing the styling cues among its various brands like VW/Audi/Bentley?Lambo has been doing in recent years?
