TheChauffeur.com editors got their hands on the 2013 7 Series luxury sedan, which was given a facelift with updated features, to test out for the chauffeured market.

According to their report, the 2013 update brought to the 7 Series a range of super eco engines, a re-developed chassis to offer enhanced comfort for passengers, self-leveling suspensions, digital dashboard, upgraded iDrive system, sunblinds, USB ports and a range of drive modes.

All-wheel drive and hybrid versions of the 7 Series are expected this year.

The BMW brand appeals more to younger, wealthy hipsters, while the Mercedes brand (which just released images of its new 2014 S-Class) appeals to more traditional, formal chauffeured clients.
