When I first saw this vehicle, frankly I wasn't sure what it was. Sort of like looking at a rather stout lady trying to look gracious, I suppose. But one drive solidified my love for the car. BMW fit, finish and superb handling, accompanied by choice of three levels of suspension, chassis and engine tuning on the fly, with the sure footedness of all wheel drive. Couple that with good gas mileage, averaging 25 MPG on the highway with less than 2000 miles on the odometer. Lots of power with the 300 HP turbocharged 6 cylinder engine.
The interior is pure luxury especially with the Sport Package which includes 20 way adjustable seats. The finely stitched Dakota Leather interior is standard and Nappa Leather is optional. Rear seating is excellent with lots of headroom and more foot room than I can ever remember on a car; a 2+2 option is available, limiting rear seating to two seats, although I opted for the standard rear seats which seat three and have a nice fold down armrest with opening console and dual cup holders.
Lots of cargo capacity with fold down rear seats; center also folds down for ski pass through. A folding rear cargo divider also separates the rear from the seats, preventing damage from cargo, and offering additional sound deadening. A power opening and closing liftgate is standard as are power closing doors. Automatic dual zone climate control is standard as well.
A Great BMW vehicle. Rather odd when first viewed, perhaps, but so easy to love.
