The infotainment is through BMW’s idrive system. BMW state that the system offers drivers a tailored experience based on a natural dialogue between you and the car. The overall system was really intuitive and easy to use to find apps, maps and media systems. This being said the GPS maps were helpful but did not have as in-depth traffic updates as I would have liked and were nowhere near as on par with Google Maps.
The standard speakers and sound system were enjoyable. If you do want a better experience then these can be upgraded, but in our opinion, it doesn’t feel necessary.
The driver’s digital display changes with drive modes (for example ‘sport’ makes it more aggressive). I found it wasn’t as customisable as the Audi system where you can see features such as the maps behind the steering wheel.
