Why did you choose this car?
I have always loved BMW cars. I love the tech along with the xDrive. Although not the best looker it definitely stands out from the crowd. The driver comfort is brilliant and the handling is spot on.

 

Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car.

  • The interior is very nice
  • Spacious for 5 people
  • Good technology.

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • The range is not as expected, even off the forecourt
  • It’s a small issue but the radio has poor imagery on the stations
  • Self-parking is not as effective as I thought it would be
  • Laser lights are poorer than previous models.

 

Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?
None yet thankfully. Just the range keeps varying, sometimes it drops 10 miles even when you have only driven 1 mile.

 

What are the standout tech features of the car?

  • All really…
  • Adaptive speed and automated driving is great
  • The regenerative braking option is good too
  • The interior is well thought out with a high-quality feel.
