  • Exquisite, hushed cabin
  • Strong acceleration
  • Exceptional ride quality
  • Ultra-luxury backseat (L models)
  • Concert-hall-quality sound


  • Dull, almost anonymous exterior
  • Indecisive transmission
  • Front seats could use more support
  • Sport edition tuned to rivals' base settings


  • An aesthetic high-five
  • Startling power, even with six-cylinder versions
  • Handling's pretty sharp for such a wide, long car
  • That huge back seat
  • Your choice of nine different models


  • The electronic gadgets can feel overwhelming
  • BMW's iDrive system's getting better--but have you tried MyFord Touch?
  • ActiveHybrid 7 has too much regen baked in at low speeds
  • Is the V-12 worth it?
