SE is our favourite trim. As standard you get leather seat trim, heated front seats with electric lumbar adjustment, dual-zone climate control, ambient interior lighting, cruise control, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, 17in alloy wheels (18in on the more powerful engines), along with BMW’s fantastic iDrive infotainment system, LED headlights and taillights, front and rear parking sensors, a rear view camera and a parking assistance system.
