Few back seats in the automotive world measure up to the experience one can find in a fully optioned 2020 BMW M760i. It comes with the territory of being a luxury flagship car. Anybody who spends $181,975 on a vehicle should expect nothing but excellence, and that’s exactly what this 2020 7 Series delivers in many aspects. The best seat in the house is directly behind the passenger seat (though we’ve come to love being behind the wheel, too). From here, you’re just one button press away from total serenity, and likely sleep. Check out what I’m talking about below. But wait! Now you’re sitting way too far away to use the fancy iDrive touch tablets on the seat in front of you (one of the many additions from the $5,750 Executive Package). Don’t fret. That’s what the Samsung tablet sitting in between the two rear passenger seats is for. All of the functions you could spin through on the seatback tablet are also available within the supplemental tablet (it even has a V12 emblem permanently stamped in the top left corner). And those functions are many in number. You are the master of the music from the rear seats. Any radio station or music source can be changed from the back — you can even skip forward or backward through songs being played through Apple CarPlay. Say you want a good steak after a long, hard day of being a rich executive. Send a navigation “suggestion” up to the main infotainment system to your restaurant of choice. The driver will need to “accept” your suggestion, but really, do they have a choice? You can even eat the steak on the center console’s fold-out tray. I don’t suggest ordering this gorgeous white leather option if you’re prone to eating messy meals in the back seat, though. All of the lighting, climate and seat climate/massage controls have hard buttons available, but you can also use any of the tablets to do the same thing. Unless you’re trying to choose the type of massage (there are many), I think the hard buttons are easier to use. Though, the climate control and lighting buttons (for the vertical lamps on the B-pillar) are a bit of a reach if you’re in the lounge position. The screens are just smaller versions of iDrive with fewer options found within. That means they run quickly and smoothly, but take some time to learn. Only exceedingly tall individuals will find any kind of a size constraint in the 7 Series. Even the taller among us at Autoblog found it to be plentiful in space. The step-in height is also luxurious. BMW mounts the seats up higher than typical sedan height to make the fall down into them less abrupt. It’s not quite crossover height, but you won’t be struggling to step in and out of the back of this car. It hardly bears mentioning, but the materials quality is top notch. The soft-touch suede ceiling and comfy, thick …
