We’ve already driven the petrol-powered version of the latest ‘G12’ 7-series, the 750Li, and we came away mighty impressed. However, we ended that review on a sort of ‘to be continued’ note, because it is important to factor this car – the 730Ld – the diesel version, into the equation. The simple fact is diesel is still the more popular choice for luxury cars and this makes the 730Ld the more important model for BMW in India.
The 730Ld also has wider appeal on the grounds of its lower price tag. You see, where the 750Li is a full import and costs Rs 1.55 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi), prices for the India-assembled 730Ld start at Rs 1.14 crore. You can buy an imported (and pricier) 730Ld as well but that version is only for you if you want to customise it to suit your tastes. For this test, we’ve featured the locally assembled 730Ld in the higher of its two trim lines. What makes the 730Ld special? Our detailed road test reveals all.
