While it's available as a six-cylinder M40i edition, our tester here is the base 30i with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

BMW's iDrive 6.0 system can be controlled via the 10-inch touchscreen or the rotary controller between the seats. Gesture control is also on hand, but it's more of a gimmick than anything else.
