SUV fans will be glad to hear that the traditional lofty driving position is present and correct.
The driver’s seat supports well at the sides to keep you in place through bends – even more so with the M Sport and M40i’s sports seats. Furthermore, the seat lines up nicely with the pedals, so you don’t have to sit awkwardly.
There’s a good range of adjustability to the seat and steering wheel, too, although it remains frustrating that BMW doesn’t include adjustable lumbar support as standard. It’s a relatively cheap option, though, and one that we’d definitely recommend adding.
You’ll also have no issues using the functions of the car, with a well-designed dashboard that leaves everything nicely to hand.
