I just leased a 2016 RRS for my wife and like everything about it except the driver's seat feels a little narrow for me. For those who have both the RR and the RRS, is there any difference between the 2? I am considering a RR for myself but would like a little more room in the driver's seat and for my knees. Thanks in advance .

Well, I'm still waiting for my '16 RRS, but will say between the '13 RRS I have and the new one I've tried, both seats are narrow, which I prefer. That is, for a sport-style seat. As for the FFRR, we're talking first class here. And the seats feel that way.

The 13 and newer full size fits anyone! I'm 6'1 250 linebacker I feel very comfortable.

The sport seat is a narrow sport type

The full size is a comfy lazy boy

I'm 6'2" and in the sport my knees rub against the center console...my wife car only drive once and a while

Thanks. It's about an hour and a half to my dealer and am going to check them out myself in a few weeks. I have a 2012 BMW 750 and I was waiting to get the new 7 which came out last week, but after driving my wife's RRS it's making my decision a little harder.

Have you considered full size RR? It'll make you forget 7 series ;)

the new 7 is gorgeous, but if you want an SUV, you gotta go for the Full Size RR. It is like someone else said above, a lazy boy recliner. It is certainly one of the most comfortable cars I have ever been in. The ONLY other car that compares is a Mercedes S Class. The 7 series usually doesn't even compare to an equivalent S class when it comes to comfort. But the Full Size RR is definitely competition.

I have a full size RR and a 2014 7 series and the RR is much, much more comfortable. I'm not saying that the 7 is an uncomfortable car, but even in the comfort+ suspension setting, the ride is quite a bit rougher than the RR. The 7 (like all BMW's) have pretty hard seats...the RR seats are much cushier. I much prefer the driving view from the RR as well, but obviously that's a personal opinion. Good luck!

I am going to see the new 750 tomorrow and hopefully see the RR in the next week or two. Not in a big hurry as my current lease isn't up until March.

But if you want a RR with specific options for March delivery, then you need to be placing an order pretty soon!

Drove the new 750 last night at my dealer's driving event last night in Pittsburgh . Gorgeous vehicle, much nicer than my 2012. Completely redesigned and finally a true S class competitor. Still haven't driven the RR but came away very impressed last evening.
