Expert Rating

4.7 (Excellent)
20 City / 29 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Choosing Your BMW 740

2015 BMW 740 Side

All 740 models receive a turbocharged 3-liter six-cylinder with 315 horsepower and an eight-speed automatic transmission. Selectable driving modes allow you to adjust engine and transmission response to your taste. The standard self-leveling rear air suspension assures passenger comfort on long trips.

The long-wheelbase variant, formally known as the 740Li, offers an additional six inches of rear legroom, which gives the 740 one of the roomiest backseats in the industry. You can add BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system to any model.

As you would expect, the interior comes dressed in fine wood and leather. You also get thoughtful touches like four-zone climate control, 20 GB of audio storage, voice controls and 12-speaker surround sound. Long-wheelbase models can get power rear seats with ventilation and massage.

2015 BMW 740 Interior

Buyers in search of the ultimate luxury cruiser will appreciate the Executive Package, which adds massaging and ventilated front seats, soft-close automatic doors, BMW concierge services and a Harman Kardon audio system. The other major option package, M Sport, adds sportier trim inside and out, 19- or 20-inch wheels, and a higher top speed.

The Cold Weather Package gets you heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel and a BMW ski bag. The Lighting Package adds LED headlights and automatic high beams. There's also the Driver Assistance Plus Package with advanced safety technology like a surround-view camera system, lane-departure warning and a driver alertness monitor.

You can also select from high-end individual options like a self-parking system, night vision with pedestrian detection, a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system and a rear entertainment system.

CarsDirect Tip

If you expect to carry a full load of passengers, or are simply a fan of big luxury, we recommend upgrading to the stretched Li model. You get a lot of extra iron for your money and an ultra-prestigious look that is hard to match.
