Expert Quotes:

Vastly improved ergonomics and even better-feeling materials
Automobile Magazine

Perhaps the quietest car cabin ever devised
Motor Trend

Inside, there are a number of improvements

It's hard to justify spending $80,000 on a car that doesn't deliver in terms of comfort and quality. Thanks to a highly comfortable, luxurious cabin and BMW's usual bulletproof reputation for quality, 2009 BMW 7-Series owners won't have to worry about making that justification.

The seating arrangement within the 2009 BMW 7-Series is extraordinarily comfortable, thanks to both its generous dimensions and sculpted, supportive seats. Automobile Magazine raves about the "vastly improved ergonomics" inside the BMW 7-Series 2009 lineup, while editors here at TheCarConnection.com feel that the multi-adjustable front seats are paragons of comfort—and the back's not shabby either. Speaking of the backseats, ConsumerGuide reports, "The 'L' versions of BMW's flagship sedan ride on a wheelbase that is 5.5-inches longer than that of the 750i," and virtually all of that extra space has gone into rear legroom. For those who want to truly swaddle themselves in comfort, the seats can be ordered with a massage capability.

The voluminous BMW 7-Series can swallow lots of cargo, thanks to its generous dimensions. Passengers simply disappear inside the cabin, while the 2009 BMW 7-Series' large trunk is easily capable of handling golf bags or the contents of a serious Whole Foods run.

When it comes to interior materials and build quality, the 2009 BMW 7-Series can hold its own against any of its competitors. Automobile Magazine points out that the latest BMW 7-Series 2009 features "even better-feeling materials" than its predecessor, while Motor Trend raves about the "mix of fine leather and polished woods" that leads them to christen this "the most luxurious-feeling interior yet from BMW." Automobile Magazine also notes that the center screen on the BMW 7-Series 2009 is "larger (10.2 inches vs. 8.8 inches), [and] higher-definition."

Another area where the BMW 7-Series excels is in terms of driving refinement. Motor Trend goes so far as to conjecture that the BMW 7-Series 2009 has "perhaps the quietest car cabin ever devised," a testament to the impeccable build quality of the 2009 BMW 7-Series.


Boasting sublime materials and top-notch comfort, the 2009 BMW 7-Series is a true luxury vehicle and worth every penny of its $80,300 MSRP.

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.
