Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's great fun to drive. The supercharged engine produces a surge of power whenever needed and the 5-speed electronic transmission is silky smooth. Only the steering lets it down. Compared to my old 5 Series, the steering feels vague, not as satisfying.

What's it like to park?
Easy
