Atop the dash is a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system running BMW's iDrive 7 software. Although some features are buried deep into menus, the primary display pages, for navigation, music and phone calling, are self-explanatory and have a very easy learning curve.

My test car has a 12.3-inch Live Cockpit Pro digital instrument cluster. A monochrome (and relatively low-detail) map sits in the center of the screen, while on the right-hand side I can pull up details like fuel-economy info, G-force readouts or even the currently playing song's album art.

Connectivity includes USB ports of both the Type-A and Type-C variety, optional wireless phone charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless Apple CarPlay support -- though Android Auto remains unavailable.

The optional Driving Assistant Professional feature adds adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, as well as lane-centering steering -- but it's not a hands-off autonomous system. Extended Traffic Jam Assistant can accelerate, steer and brake in heavy traffic at speeds below 37 mph, and it has a camera in the instrument cluster that "watches" to ensure the driver is still looking at the roadway; if so, he or she won't even need to touch the wheel.
