Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

With plenty of adjustment to the seat and steering wheel, it’s easy to find a decent driving position in the X4 M Competition. Thanks to heavy bolstering, the seats also do a fine job of holding you in place during spirited cornering, their illuminated M headrest badges being a neat touch. 

All-round visibility is good, too, and, just to make your life easier, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera are included as standard.  You also get clever LED headlights, which allow you to drive with your headlights on full beam without dazzling other road users.

Interior build quality is great: with high-quality materials in abundance, the X4 M is light years ahead of the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio in this regard. If you want, you can upgrade the slabs of piano black interior trim to real carbonfibre at extra cost.

The controls for most of the main function are within easy reach and a 10.3in touchscreen infotainment system is standard. We rate this system highly for its ease of use; it trumps rival systems by giving you a physical rotary controller interface located between the front seats; using this on the move is far less distracting than stabbing away at the touchscreen.
