I agree, the usual driver focused interior works well in a 3 series or similar, even - to a certain level - in the 5 series, even if that is not longer primarily a driver's car. But in the 7 series it IMO has no sytle anymore, loosing to both the luxurious, finely detailed atmosphere of a an S-Class nor Lexus or the cold tech atmosphere of the Audi A8. It looks no more expensive than a Genesis or Kia K900 inside, as it has the "regular car made expensive feel". Likely, this will have similar issues.
I also think this will mostly kill 7 series sales (and better equipped 5 series), probably some Q7 and GLS customers as well (though that is in severe need of a refresh as well IMO), I doubt that those who want a Range Rover will really cross shop much (probably a Bentyaga at the top end), and the typical Land Cruiser customer also likely wants either the off-road abilities or Toyota reliability, because as a luxury vehicle there are much better solutions out there.
