Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

Editor's Overview

BMW's flagship sedan coddles passengers and simultaneously provides plenty of engagement for the driver. As expected in a luxury car of this caliber, creature comforts abound, as do engine choices that range from a relatively fuel-efficient 6-cylinder to a monstrous V12 and even a V8 hybrid.
