The interior of the facelifted 7-Series remains mostly similar to the older version, except for some subtle twists. Notably, a revised steering wheel is featured on the new version. The wireless charging station, on the previous design, was tucked under the centre console armrest. On the 2019 version, it has moved to the front of the cupholder, thereby allowing the driver to have a quick check on his or her phone when necessary. 

For the infotainment system, it gets a new BMW Live Cockpit Professional system comprising of a 10.25-inch touchscreen on the centre along with a 12.3-inch digital display for the instrument cluster. Moreover, the driver can use “Hey BMW” command to activate the new BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. The 3.0-litre six-potr petrol and diesel engines from the previous version will continue to power the refreshed 7-Series. The 3.0-litre petrol unit can generate a maximum power of 265 PS and a peak torque of 620 Nm, while the 3.0-litre diesel is good for 340 PS and 450 Nm.
