Safety

The 750Li is outfitted with a full array of airbags, including front-seat-mounted side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags for both rows, and knee airbags. The previous-generation 7 Series offered rear side-impact airbags, but this one doesn't. It seems an oversight in a car so focused on addressing the needs of backseat passengers.

Advanced features Ч like adaptive cruise control with a collision warning system, blind spot detection, and even a night-vision feature Ч are optional.

750Li in the Market
Our 750Li's as-tested price of $104,000 may make your eyes bulge, but the car is a luxurious limousine that's still a sizable chunk of change less than a Bentley Continental Flying Spur, which starts at $177,600 Ч and it's a lot less ostentatious to boot.
