There’s four trims: SE, Sport, Luxury and Modern as well the M Sport package. SE includes 18-inch alloy wheels, 6.5-inch colour screen with iDrive and climate control while Sport adds fancier alloys and sports seats.

The Luxury trim gets extra exterior and interior detailing while Modern trim gets with cloth/leather or optional leather upholstery in black or oyster, and a choice of four trim surfaces with accent strips in pearl-effect chrome.

Finally, the M Sport trim adds a new aerodynamic package, including revised front apron with large air intake, rear bumper with diffuser and side skirts while 18-inch M Star-spoke light-alloy wheels are standard.

Inside the M Sport offers door sill finishers and an M leather steering wheel and it also includes sports suspension and optional sport brakes with callipers in contrasting blue paint finish.
