Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s loads of space in the front, while rear leg room also impresses. However, the X4 M’s plunging, coupé-style roofline forces six-footers to slouch in the rear seats or sit with their heads brushing up against the rooflining.

At the same time, a narrow central rear seat makes it a squeeze to get three people in the back. And the rear door openings are a little on the small side, so getting in and out could be easier. 

On the other hand, the well-shaped boot is big enough to swallow several large suitcases with ease, while the rear seats lie flat when folded down to make it easy to load longer items. The fact that those rear seatbacks split in a 40/20/40 configuration adds to versatility, too. 

That said, if you need to put people in the back on a regular basis and carry lots of luggage, we’d look at the boxier X3 M Competition.
