Mohamed Yousuf Naghi debuts BMW 7 Series LCI

Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors, the official importer and distributor of BMW vehicles in Saudi Arabia, has announced the launch of the BMW 7 Series LCI to customers across the Kingdom.
“The BMW 7 Series is a clear and powerful statement of intent by the German carmaker and a model that will dominate the Kingdom’s luxury executive automobile market for years to come,” the company said. The Saudi distributor described the latest models as “every motorist’s ideal vehicle.”
It said the BMW 7 Series combines strong performance and the latest driver assistance and connectivity technology.
Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors expects the vehicle to be received with excitement in the Kingdom by motorists “who appreciate the sheer driving pleasure only BMW can deliver.”
Donn Muirhead, managing director of Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors, said: “It is our great pleasure to announce the arrival of BMW’s newest flagship luxury vehicle to our new customers and loyal clients throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”
He added: “Our discerning customers will truly appreciate the capabilities, technology, performance and pure driving joy of the BMW 7 Series as it becomes the iconic leader in premium mobility.”
The new BMW 7 Series has been significantly upgraded with an emphasis on precision and design, with features that give the vehicle a greater presence including a new 40 percent larger, single-piece BMW kidney grille.
The BMW 7 Series is available at Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors showrooms in two new models, each boasting fully revised engines: The 6-cylinder 740iLi and 8-cylinder 750iLi xDrive, with the latter accelerating from 0–100 km/h in 4.4 seconds at 450 hp, and the 6-cylinder equivalent offering 326 hp, with a maximum torque of 450 Nm at 1380 rpm.
The BMW 7 Series’ enhanced performance is delivered thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics engineering and a lightweight carbon core that means the car weighs 130 kg less than its predecessor.
The interior of the BMW 7 Series features the latest BMW ConnectedDrive driver assistance and entertainment systems, including touch command that allows passengers in the rear to control multiple in-car functions using a seven-inch Samsung tablet.
BMW 7 Series customers can enjoy advanced technology features such as the panoramic “Sky Lounge” sun roof, in-car ambient lighting and nappa leather upholstery.
Established in 1990, Mohamed Yousuf Naghi Motors has been the exclusive and official importer of BMW Group brands — BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce — for 27 years in Saudi Arabia. It has showrooms and service centers in Jeddah, Riyadh, Alkhobar, Qassim, Makkah and Madinah.
