Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fast, quiet, smooth. Does 30 mpg day to day, high 30s on motorway runs. Bit more willowy than 3 series touring was but better ride comfort.

What's it like to park?
Better with the rear camera. Front sensors standard but not exactly a city car to park...

Great boot size, roomy interior.
