A new detail in the BMW 7 Series: Personal Pilot L3
BMW also applies the grille design, which has caused controversy in the crossover segment, to the 7 Series. However, this time there is a new detail inside the grilles: the Personal Pilot L3 system. This system provides hands-free driving assistant feature to BMW 7 Series and i7 models.
What is Personal Pilot L3?
Personal Pilot L3 is a newly developed driving assistant system from BMW. Thanks to this system, drivers can drive their vehicles at speeds up to 60 km/h without touching the steering wheel. This system works with supersonic sensors, radar and 3D LiDAR located in front of the vehicle. This system will be available for the 7 Series and i7 models in Germany in March. The tax-free price of this equipment is approximately 180.000₺.
How does the Personal Pilot L3 influence the grille design?
The Personal Pilot L3 system also requires a change in the grille design, due to the sensors located at the front of the vehicle. By placing the sensors inside the grilles, BMW adds rectangular sensors inside the quadrangular trapezoidal grilles. This makes the already large and eye-catching grids look even more complicated. Although BMW tried to reduce the contrast by keeping the sensors inside the grilles black, it is certain that this design will receive a lot of criticism.
How are the BMW 7 Series and i7 in terms of performance and comfort?
Although the BMW 7 Series and i7 are criticized for their design, they are very successful cars in terms of performance and comfort. In particular, the i7 provides both fuel efficiency and emission reduction with its electric engine and e-POWER powertrain system. In addition, the interior of the vehicles is very luxurious and comfortable. In the test drives carried out by the Motor1 team, the driving dynamics and comfort of the vehicles were also praised. BMW 7 Series and i7 are appreciated in many areas other than their design.
What do you think of the new design of the BMW 7 Series and i7?
The new design of the BMW 7 Series and i7 has become even more controversial due to the sensors added inside the grilles. This design is a design approach that BMW also applies to its models in the crossover segment. However, it is also true that this design is not liked by many BMW fans.
