The new G11/G12 BMW 7-Series on the other hand, is just a simple, straightforward upgrade. More technology, more luxury, more room, and the same driving enjoyment that you would expect from something wearing a roundel badge, or better. What’s most amazing is despite its size, it behaves very well on tighter curves that snakes up the horizon like gigantic slaloms. The experience of helming this flagship is natural, you can feel that BMW had taken plenty of time in honing to handle these kind of roads, and unlike Mercedes-Benz’s Active Curve Tilting - which uses complex sensors to tilt the car into tricking the driver that you’re actually not cornering at all - the big BMW does it with a fluidity of anticipation, so that you can explore further and further into pushing the car. It’s one of those modern good cars that you can’t feel the steering at slow speeds, but communication intensifies the faster you go. It’s a very nice, very authentic experience.
