Expert Quotes:

highly adjustable front seats ensure comfort for virtually any body type
Edmunds

Vastly improved ergonomics and even better-feeling materials
Automobile

Perhaps the quietest car cabin ever devised
Motor Trend

Prepare to be astounded inside the 2010 7-Series, especially in long-wheelbase versions. The cabin's just astounding, with so much passenger room, it's close to the long-wheelbase-only 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class. We've settled into the multi-adjustable front seats for hours-long drives with just a few quick clicks of the seat controls, and found plenty of headroom, shoulder room, and legroom. The long-wheelbase version adds 5.5 inches of rear-seat legroom, not that you'd complain about the more compact version. We've been able to cross legs in back, with front passengers reclined, and still have room to move. The backseat can be equipped with heating, ventilation, and massaging controls, along with four-zone climate control. The wood and leather trim is easily the equal of a Rolls-Royce quality-fitting since BMW has owned Rolls-Royce for a decade. We do think the techno-driven styling of some controls draws down the cabin's serene statement, but wind and engine noise are extremely low, and all cars we've examined up close had faultless build quality.

More Opinions:
ConsumerGuide: L versions "ride on a wheelbase that is 5.5-inches longer"
Motor Trend: "the most luxurious-feeling interior yet from BMW"
Edmunds: rear seats are "accommodating for taller adults"
Car and Driver: "we prefer the cushy lounge seats of the Lexus LS to the slightly firmer BMW chairs"
Motor Trend: "At the rear, the two outer seats recline and tilt"
Car and Driver: "The only time you hear the V-12 is when you're sitting at idle, where you hear a silky purr closer to the sound of BMW's inline-six than a V-8"
Motor Trend: "The engine merely whispers"

Conclusion

The 2010 BMW 7-Series suits almost all bodies well, with firm and cozy seats, vast rear-seat room, and exquisite fit and finish.

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.
