BMW is still putting the finishing touches on the 2016 7-Series but new details are starting to emerge about the flagship sedan.

According to Auto Motor und Sport's sources, the redesigned model will have a new touch-sensitive infotainment system which operates much like a smartphone or tablet.

More interestingly, the model will reportedly be offered with an optional information system for the front seat passenger. This will enable them to access a variety of apps and infotainment services without interfering with the driver's system.

Speaking to technology, the 7-Series is slated to have a number of semi-autonomous driving functions including an improved Active Driving Assistant that can drive the car in stop-and-go traffic. The model is also rumored to have an autonomous parking system similar to the one that will be demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

If that's not impressive enough, the magazine says the company is also working on high-tech eyewear which can digitally edit out the A-pillars and provide information about buildings and intersections that the user is looking at.
