We’ve read about the feature and seen photos of it in action on BimmerFile. Now we get to see the 2016 7 Series do the seemingly impossible with its self parking function.
As with all technology that we see in larger BMWs we quickly begin to wonder about BMW’s rollout strategy for its smaller vehicles like the MINI. Would something like this make sense for a small car that’s relatively easy to park? Or does the size of car you have not matter when you’re parking in densely packed parking garages? More importantly, would you use a feature like this?
You can see more in person when the 7 Series hits US dealerships October 28th. However self parking won’t be on display as the regulatory laws in the US prevent the feature from being offered for the time being. Yet by the time the technology filters down the range we’d expect that to change.
