BMW 740Li Rent Dubai
If you’re looking for a large car to be driven in, the BMW 740Li rent in Dubai checks a lot of boxes, especially for its spacious and relaxing cabin that can be optioned with all manner of luxury features. All models are powered by a silky-smooth powertrain, ranging from an inline-six in the base 740i to twin-turbo V-8 and V-12 options; there’s even a plug-in-hybrid model that can run on electricity for up to 17 miles before switching to its gasoline engine. Drivers won’t find much to entertain themselves, since the biggest BMW sedan has taken a comfort-first approach, but the 7-series doesn’t disappoint as a cruiser, as its compliant ride easily erases road imperfections.
The leadfooted among us may disagree, but the base powertrain—a turbocharged inline-six—in the 740i is perfectly suitable for this car’s relaxed nature. It provides plenty of gumption when you need it, but otherwise is quiet and smooth, so it’s the one we’d recommend. Plus, its lower starting price frees up your money to go toward some luxury interior features. We’d splurge on the Driving Assistance Professional package, with a semi-autonomous-driving mode that is particularly useful in traffic jams, so we can relax and let the car do some of the work
Engines and transmissions are at the top of the short list of highlights. Every engine here, from the 740i’s 320-hp turbocharged inline-six to the M760i’s insane 601-hp twin-turbo V-12, is velvety smooth and feels more muscular than official horsepower figures indicate. Even the 745e plug-in, with its combination of turbocharged six-cylinder engine and electric motor, is powerful and manages to drive with a natural feel that’s absent from most hybrids. Each 7-series shares some variation of the same slick-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive (xDrive in BMW marketing-speak) is optional on the 740i and standard on the rest of the lineup. No matter which drive mode you select, the suspension is pillowy soft and body control is in short supply. The 7-series has adequate cornering grip, but the suspension’s moves in general—and the numb, light steering in particular—discourage exploring it.
For decades, BMW’s interior aesthetic has been serious and businesslike. That was acceptable when its cars were more about the serious business of driving. Lacking that ethos, the latest 7-series affords occupants the bandwidth to notice build quality, materials, and design that are merely average for this rich segment. Sure, it’s spacious, but so is every limousine in this class. It’s luxurious, but one turn in a Mercedes-Benz S-class or even the Genesis G90, and you’ll be left wanting more from a car that starts north of $80,000. Numerically speaking, the BMW’s 18-cubic-foot trunk is at least two cubic feet larger than those of competitors such as the Cadillac CT6 and the G90. But the reality of packing it with real-world-size carry-on bags tells a different story: We could fit only three carry-on suitcases inside our 740i test vehicle’s trunk, whereas the other sedans held twice as many.
