Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The cabin is a luxurious environment to be in. It’s spacious, light and the ergonomics are thoughtfully applied. We can say with certainty that you’ll find it comfortable. All the switches and buttons fall effortlessly to hand and it’s comfortable for several hours in the saddle.

Passengers appreciate the spacious cabin that offers more rear room than the previous model. It has a luxury look with a classy-looking dash and instrument panel, but the seats, although made from quality material feel flat. The rear legroom was one of the areas that BMW sought to improve with its new avantgarde model, but the old one is still roomy enough for two adults to ride in comfort.
