The 2020 BMW 7 Series: Indulgence-Heavy Without A Great Design

Whether you are a BMW fan or just keeping up with their models over the years, you would know that the 2001 7 Series threw the world into spasm. In a good way. Its stylish design, slabby sides, and grotesquely-stepped rear stopped everyone in their tracks. This, however, is not the case with the new 2020 BWM 7 Series. Not in terms of the new face, at least.

Every BMW lover would agree that the company is making an audacious move with the new face at the series.

Why The New Massive Grill?

There has been a lot of discussion about the massive and polarizing grill on the new BMW series. However, this is not a design failure, and there is a reason for its size.

According to Alexey Kheza (a BMW designer), the bigger grill allowed the designer to come up with a clean, lower bumper that lacks the mesh of the pre-facelift model. The body-colored panel directs air into the air curtains, which improves the aerodynamics of the new sedan vehicles. Also, Kheza pointed out that the grill is proportionally bigger compared to the old series. In other words, a bigger sedan, a bigger grill.

Could a Photographer Improve the Design?

Gabriel Wickbold, a São Paulo-based photographer, was commissioned to work on a new display at a pop-store. Without any doubt, Wickbold’s subsequent reimagination is exciting and did quite the work. However, as a result, the grill stands out even more.

So, Is It Really Worth It?

Of course, it is! The new 7 Series offers superb vehicles. In this 2020 lineup, the luxury models represent the best seats in the house. The BMW 7 Series is stately, sumptuous, and serene. Its long-wheelbase body style yields more rear-seat legroom than rivals, and the cabin is brimming with top-notch materials and high-tech features.
