What's a BMW 7-Series without enough gadgets to make James Bond envious? We'll never know, thanks to the 2009 BMW 7-Series lineup, which continues this nameplate's long tradition of offering the latest in high-tech amenities.

TheCarConnection.com's research shows that the 2009 BMW 7-Series keeps things simple by offering just two variants, with a wide range of available optional features as well. ConsumerGuide says that "the 7-Series lineup will consist of two models, the 750i and 750Li," and Motor Trend states that both of these BMW 7-Series vehicles come with "high levels of standard equipment." One of those standard items on the BMW 7-Series 2009 is iDrive, BMW's in-car computer system that controls most of the vehicle's functions. On the previous BMW 7-Series the iDrive was much maligned for its poor user interface, but for the BMW 7-Series, 2009 brings an all-new interface. The new version of iDrive is so improved that Car and Driver proclaims that "continuing to call it iDrive is almost an insult to its vastly improved control strategy." Another slick feature of iDrive is that it now houses "an electronic owner's manual," according to Automobile Magazine, "tailored to the exact options of the 7-Series it is housed within." All of this helps maintain the BMW 7-Series' status as the "pinnacle of technology and luxury accoutrements in the German automaker's lineup," raves Edmunds.

In addition to the standard luxury items found on the 2009 BMW 7-Series, the reports read by TheCarConnection.com show that the BMW 7-Series can be equipped with a lengthy list of optional features. ConsumerGuide reports that "MP3 player connectivity and satellite radio" are available on the BMW 7-Series 2009 lineup, while "also available are a night-vision system, adaptive cruise control, DVD entertainment, and keyless access/engine start." For those BMW 7-Series 2009 vehicles equipped with the DVD entertainment package, Autoblog notes that "backseaters get a pair of video screens, and each passenger has control over what his or hers displays." Jalopnik, meanwhile, declares that "exclusive BMW driver-assistance systems and comfort-related features further add to a truly exceptional driving and riding experience."

Conclusion

The 2009 BMW 7-Series is a tech-lover's dream, and with the simplification of iDrive it's now more accessible than ever.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
