Every 2010 BMW 7-Series comes with luxury features that seem appropriate and a heady dose of electronic gadgets that border on overwhelming.

Chief among them is iDrive. We've complained about its complexity, but it's been reprogrammed and augmented with memory presets and direct-to-function buttons that ease your way through navigation, climate, and audio functions-but dial back the intention of clearing the dash of dozens of buttons.

The voice-activated navigation system stores maps on an 80GB hard drive and displays them on a gorgeous 10.2-inch LCD. You can zap destinations to your car via Google Maps (in Europe, the 7er has wide-open access to the Internet). DVDs work in the head unit, which also includes HD Radio; a six-DVD changer, satellite radio, and iPod connections can be fitted. There's also a rear-seat entertainment system optional on V-8 cars.

Almost everything is made standard on the V-12 760Li-as it should be for its nearly $140,000 price tag-but options remain, including night vision, massaging rear seats, adaptive cruise control, and a choice of wood trim.

More Options:
Edmunds: "Some may still find the iDrive system a bit complicated, but with use over time, we think the improved layout is an elegant solution to a button-heavy dashboard"
Motor Trend: "high levels of standard equipment"
Car and Driver: "continuing to call it iDrive is almost an insult to its vastly improved control strategy"
Edmunds: "pinnacle of technology and luxury accoutrements"
Jalopnik: comfort features "further add to a truly exceptional driving and riding experience"
Car and Driver: second air-conditioning unit "is nice, we suppose, but it looks like an aftermarket addition and takes up nearly 1.5 cubic feet of trunk space"

Conclusion

The 2010 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.
