More gentleman than sportsman, BMW's big 7-series is a refined luxury driver, comfortable for long highway cruises but not quite the cornering pro as its stable mates. We enjoyed the solid driving feel, the lush maps on the navigation system, and the very nice-sounding stereo as we covered the miles.

The car is also available with a good set of driver assistance features, including adaptive cruise control and night vision. But we couldn't figure out why BMW limits its top sedan to a six-speed transmission, when the 550i Gran Turismo gets an eight-speed.
