Expert Quotes:

Supple leather and rich wood accents adorn almost every surface, and the highly adjustable front seats ensure comfort for virtually any body type.
Edmunds

Vastly improved ergonomics and even better-feeling materials.
Automobile

The most luxurious-feeling interior yet from BMW.
Motor Trend

It's hard to fault the seat comfort, support, driving position or overall presentation.
Autoblog

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.
Car and Driver

With an astounding amount of space--especially in long-wheelbase versions--along with luxurious trims and materials, the 2012 BMW 7-Series cossets occupants, whether they're in front or in back.

The interior of the current 7-Series is vast, especially in its long-wheelbase (iL) forms, and it's become very close to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class in interior room. And unlike S-Class, which only comes to the U.S. in its long-wheelbase forms, the 7-Series still offers a choice. 

Front seats in the 7-Series are superb; they're multi-adjustable, and good for keeping you ache-free for hours, over long stretches of smooth and rough roads. And we've been able to get comfortable with a wide range of heights and sizes; as you might expect, the 7-Series is an especially strong pick for some of the tallest drivers.

You'll find almost limo-like legroom (an extra 5.5 inches) in the long-wheelbase 7-Series, letting you truly sprawl out in the back seat. The standard-length versions don't have that, but they're no slouch. Depending on the model and the options packages, the rear seats can be a bench or a pair of buckets, and they can be fitted with ventilation, heating, a massaging function, or bathed in warm or cool air via a four-zone climate control system.

Some of the controls in the 7-Series are a little too techno-driven, we think, but the cabin is positively serene, with fit and finish easily on par with that of a Rolls-Royce--including high-quality materials, beautiful leathers, and woods.


Conclusion

The 2012 BMW 7-Series has excellent seats, vast rear-seat room and, regardless of price, among the best fit and finish of any sedan.

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.
