The automaker only makes vague promises of driver assistance functions, but there is no doubt that its interior design is designed around a more relaxed “lounge-like atmosphere” rather than the aesthetic design of BMW’s regular sports . Without a central channel, your view is controlled by a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and a 14.9-inch control touch screen.
