BMW’s most luxurious sedan is the 7-series, which was first introduced in 1977 as the successor to the BMW E3 sedan. As BMW’s flagship car and the only available sedan in production, the 7-Series is currently in its sixth generation and offers an incredible list of luxury upgrades and features that reflect its $90,695 price tag! So, how does it hold up when it comes to depreciation?

Like most luxury cars, the BMW 7-Series can’t avoid high depreciation rates with current models depreciating by 28.7% after the first year, which puts the new car price tag of $90,000 at a value of $64,170 after 12 months. Edmunds projects the five-year true cost to own expense at $120,000, which isn’t outrageous considering other more expensive luxury cars on our list! Today, pre-owned 7-Series models that are at least five years old are priced around $23,000 with lower mileage models with a complete proof of service history going for $28,000 or more!
