, Automotive Editor -

It may be the "entry level" model of BMW’s flagship sedan, but the 740 has all the plush fixtures to place it in the pantheon of premium luxury. And it's no slouch. Many driving enthusiasts covet the performance-minded virtues of the 740's 315-horsepower 3-liter inline-six.

The 7 Series is also available with additional power in the 750, 760 and Alpina B7 models, and as a hybrid.

What's New for 2014

The trunk can be opened and closed through a motion sensor under the bumper: no hands required. The 740 also gets a new instrument cluster and iDrive system.

CarsDirect Tip

As with any BMW, adding options can sent a 740's MSRP into the stratosphere. We'd choose a 740 with the Executive Package, but if you want to splurge on a fully-optioned car, by all means do so.
