Out of the big three in the luxury segment, BMW seems to have lost a bit of steam over the past couple of years. A major reason for luxury car buyers looking elsewhere could be an ageing lineup of cars. This year, BMW will be addressing this issue, to some extent, with newer generation models and facelifts. Some of these upcoming BMWs were on display at the Auto Expo this year. Here’s BMW’s lineup from the event with all the information on BMW Cars at Auto Expo 2016 here –

BMW launched the new 7-Series in World at the Auto Expo this year. The 2016 MY 7-series was unveiled last year following which it was launched internationally in some markets. It replaces the current car in World, which has lost out big time to the Mercedes’ S-Class over the past year or so.
Prices start at INR 1.11 Cr. for the 730Ld variant, topping out at INR 1.55 Cr for the 750Li M Sport trim.
BMW has launched the 730Ld and the 750Li in World. The diesel 730Ld will be powered by a 265 hp 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder turbo diesel. Powering the 750Li will be a 4.4 litre 8 cylinder turbocharged motor producing 450 hp and 650 Nm.

BMW showcased the 2016 Model X1, which replaces the previous gen X1 entry-level crossover. The new X1 looks more SUV-like than the outgoing model, which was often criticised for its estate car-like appearance. It will compete with the Audi Q3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA.
The petrol variant will be launched later in 2016.
The World-spec X1 is powered by a 2.0-litre diesel, which puts out around 190 bhp of peak power, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. AWD could be offered as an option. Unlike the previous gen X1, the new generation is based on an all-new front wheel drive platform.
