BMW shows a bold new direction for their luxury car design with the release of their brand-new 7 Series flagship. The radically redesigned 2002 BMW 7 Series boasts a 4.4-liter V-8 engine and a host of available electronic driving aids such as Active Roll Stabilization. Debuting on the BMW 7 Series in 2002 is an all-new in-car technology called iDrive. Supported by Microsoft Windows CE, the iDrive system features a LCD screen and center control-mounted knob to control stereo as well as climate control functions. Advanced technology is also found with the M3 coupe and convertible for 2002 with a new sequential manual transmission that can operate like an automatic gearbox. A replacement to the 528i model, the 530i debuts in 2002 propelled by an all-new 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine. A minor horsepower bump to 290 horsepower is found with the V-8 powered 540i for 2002. An in-dash CD player is included standard on all 2002 BMW 5 Series models. In its third year on the market, the BMW X5 adds a 4.6-liter powerplant producing 340 horsepower.
