The BMW 7 Series is aging. Though it was given a facelift in 2019 – a controversial one, if I may add – we can't deny the fact that the current generation of the flagship Bimmer has been around since 2015.
If you're among those who have been waiting for a 7er revamp, don't fret. The next-generation BMW 7 Series is coming and since last year, BMW has been testing prototypes, giving birth to unofficial renderings based on those spy shots (see gallery below). But the most recent information about the next-generation 7 Series came from a list of leaks from Bimmer Post.

According to the leakage, the G70 7er will come standard with the usuals – air suspension, soft close doors, and Bowers & Wilkins audio. However, the list of options was also disclosed, which included fully automatic doors like in the Rolls-Royce Phantom, as well as a totally new set of headlights and the Iconic Glow on the front fascia – also known as the illuminated grille on the X6, which later became an option for the 5 Series.
The leak also stated that the 7 Series' rear seats will the same level of comfort and amenities as with the front cabin in Executive Lounge configuration, while the rear entertainment will be better than just huge screens on the headrests.
Filling the list of options are a better version of B&W audio, Sky Lounge roof, a new driver-assist package called "Motorway Assistant," and a natural A.I. interaction seen on the BMW iX EV.
Production for the G70 7 Series will allegedly begin in July 2022. Given this timeline, we can expect a reveal from the German marque towards the end of 2021 or early next year.
As always, take these leaks with a healthy dose of skepticism as they're still unconfirmed at this point.
