2021 BMW 7-Series vs. 2021 Tesla Model S

 

The 2021 BMW 7-Series is the largest sedan that BMW has to offer and so a lot of work went into ensuring that it has the right blend of luxury and performance. The cabin of the 2021 7-Series looks and feels like a suite in a luxury hotel. Everything about it is premium and is covered with high-quality leather. This large sedan is remarkably agile on the road and maintains BMW’s reputation for making extraordinary cars. When it comes to the 2021 Tesla Model S, you get an all-electric sedan that is surprisingly fast and comfortable. Though spartan in its design and interior, the revolutionary styling and outstanding range of its electrical engine is a pleasant surprise to many buyers. Here is a comparison between these two full-size sedans and a verdict on which one comes on top.

Design & Style

The 2021 BMW 7-Series lies in a segment where manufacturers ensure that no effort is spared to make their offering here as luxurious as possible. Competing with the likes of the S-Class from Mercedes Benz and the Continental from Lincoln, BMW went out of its way to make the 7-Series a clear contender in this category. Quilted seats covered in high-quality leather are just some of the features that make the styling of the 7-Series truly luxurious. The car has extra-ordinary presence too and the large polished grille is imposing. When it comes to the 2021 Tesla Model S, the emphasis was on a minimalist design that brings out its modern styling cues. However, compared to the 2021 7-Series, the Model S is rather spartan. Given the price tag of the 2021 Model S, this would probably make any car buyer hesitate to choose the Model S over the 7-Series.

Technology & Safety

For tech and safety features, car buyers get the best that BMW has to offer in the 2021 7-Series. Satellite navigation is standard and operated via a brilliant 12-inch infotainment system that handles both voice, touch, and gesture commands. Wireless charging, smartphone integration are just a few of the other tech features that come as standard on the 2021 7-Series. The 2021 Model S on the other hand features a number of tech and safety features. In a nod to its futuristic theme, all cabin functions are controlled via a giant tablet that is located on the center console. While attractive, it makes it very hard to drive while at the same time operating the infotainment display.

Performance

For power, the 2021 7-Series relies on a choice of three turbocharged engines namely, V12, V8, and V6. All three produce a blistering performance and you will never feel that the 7-Series is underpowered despite the engine trim that you use. Cabin insulation is excellent as you would expect in a car of this pedigree and the ride quality is superb. When it comes to the 2021 Model S, you get an all-electric engine with plenty of power. The car feels very experimental and one gets the feeling that Tesla has not quite worked all the kinks out. It wobbles around corners and the suspension is not anywhere near that of the 2021 7-Series.

The Bottom Line

Comparing these two extra-ordinary vehicles, it is clear the 2021 7-Series is streets ahead of the 2021 Tesla Model S From luxury features, tech features, and ride quality, the 7-Series is a far superior vehicle to the Model S. This makes it a clear winner in this comparison.
