First of all, this car is a completely new idea from BMW. An SUV merged with an executive saloon car, forming some sort of alien hybrid. Although the looks are pretty intense, I adore this car. And at the moment, looking into renewing our cars, this has certainly been a consideration, which I’m very glad about.
Ignoring the looks, this has to be one of the most luxurious cars on the market at the moment. The interior is clean, crisp and modern. The white leather option seems to be a no brainer to me. And if you purchase the ‘Executive’ version of the car, it becomes a 4 seater with only two seats in the back. So you’re wondering, why on earth does this make the car executive? Where will my average of 2.1 children per family sit? The rear bench seat is replaced by two gargantuan electronically adjustable armchairs, in which you may recline to watch Made in Chelsea via the rear seat entertainment system, whilst on your way to Croquet Club.
Naturally, the front is just as luxurious with more than enough room to swing several cats. And because it’s sort of a hatchback, your dog can come along too.
But, the best thing about this car by a mile are the costs. You can pick up a 1 year old version of this car for just £30,000 and a brand spanking new version for just over £40,000. For a car in this category, that is really rather good. And, it will be cheap to tax (Band H, £190.00) and cheap to run (~45mpg). So, well done BMW. It’s a 9 out of 10 from me.
