The interior layout, fit and finish
The interior of the iX will feel immediately familiar to anyone who has been in a BMW i3 – and that’s a very good thing indeed.
Upmarket materials have been used throughout, including sustainably sourced wood, microfibre fabrics and pleasingly robust-feeling recycled plastics. It's distinctly premium, blending some of the visual appeal you get in a Mercedes EQC with the build quality of an Audi E-tron.
Getting comfortable in the iX is easy. The steering wheel and driver’s seat offer plenty of adjustment and the fundamental driving position is superb. You don’t sit as high up as you do in say, a BMW X7, but the window line is low, giving you great visibility ahead and to the sides.
Rear visibility is more restricted due to the chunky rear pillars, but you get a reversing camera and sensors all round as standard.
BMW offers a number of optional packs that include everything from an electrochromic glass panoramic roof that can turn opaque at the touch of a button to an interior camera that can capture road-trip memories.
