BMW executive says 'people love' the firm's oversized kidney grilles

A high-ranking BMW executive says “people love” the firm’s latest oversized kidney grilles (as employed by the X7 and facelifted 7 Series) despite some initial criticism.

Speaking to Autocar, Peter Henrich, senior vice-president for product management at BMW, claimed the Munich-based firm had received “very positive” feedback about its latest design decisions.

ROAD TEST: BMW 750Li xDrive Steptronic

TEST SUMMARY

Although the bold grille treatment certainly won’t be to everyone’s taste, it does at least lend the sedan the sort of visual authority worthy of a flagship. And the under-the-skin updates tally up, too, resulting in a truly accomplished luxury vehicle.

While BMW’s latest revisions move the 7 Series to within inches of the S-Class, it’s not quite enough for it to reach the segment’s benchmark. Further complicating matters for the 7 Series is an SUV-shaped threat from within its stable, with the X7 proving more than twice as popular since hitting local dealerships in 2019.

Then, of course, there’s the small matter of the all-new, W223 S-Class, which will surely raise the bar further still when it arrives later in 2020...

Saw one on the road last week.
Very imposing / intimidating.
Almost scary.
