Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Refined and silky inline-six,
punchy acceleration,
modern and high-budget interior.

Cons
Opting for the coupe version costs $4150 and reduces practicality,
optional extras can bring the total to more than six figures,
BMW offers a twin-turbo V-8 at this price point.

Pros
Premium-feeling well-trimmed interior
Many standard safety and technology features
Effortless acceleration from either engine

Roofline compromises backseat headroom
Cargo space is similar to a compact SUV's
Only two trim levels available
