Two turbos assist to produce 407hp/ 300kW and a boat-hauling 600Nm in torque. Unlike the previous car with its gear stalk located behind the steering wheel, the use of X5/ X6/ 5 Series centrally-located gearlever ensures driver will be able to change gears too in semi-auto mode.

BMW has also created the 730d, with a newly developed diesel engine, which aims to overthrow every rival in it’s ultra luxury sedan class. The 3.0-litre turbo diesel produces class-leading figures of 245 hp/180kW and 540Nm of torque, spread from 1,750 rpm to 3,000rpm.

At first glance, the instrument cluster looks like a conventional set of BMW analog meter panels. However only the dials, indicator needles, and scale markings are conventional. The rest including speedometer and rev meter numbers and all other warnings and indicators are displayed via a color LCD. BMW calls this the “Black Panel”. When you turn off the car all you will see are the dials and needles.

Bi-Xenon headlamps are standard, and the “angel eyes” (BMW calls them “Corona Rings” fyi) function as daytime driving lights. The headlamps have two super intelligent options – Headlight Assistant and Adaptive Headlights.

Headlight Assistant turns on the high beam automatically when there are no cars up ahead.

Adaptive Headlights adds a few more features to the headlamps. One is the ability to switch on an additional light beam when the driver turns into a corner, illuminating the area head in the corner.

Adaptive Headlight Range Control adjusts the beam angle automatically over different road vertical contours. Variable light distribution enlarges the beam wider at speeds below 50km/h, but switches to a highway mode that shines further. The foglamps work in a similiar way, except the switchover point is 70km/h.

Super Cool Feature: The Lane Change Warning feature flashes an LED display on and off at the base of the wing mirror and vibrates the steering wheel to alert the driver if there is a vehicle in the adjacent lane.

    When the 1 series came out, I didn’t like it. Potentially if it appeared to be closer to what the 2002 was and was (much) lighter, more affordable, and had a truly fantastic I4 (turboed or not, I don’t care) then I would like it better, but whatever. What frustrated me way more was the predictable M version which ought to pragmatically be named the M1. I thought that it just couldn’t be appropriate to compare and contrast the 2 M1s. Nonetheless, since the 1 series debuted in the US, the M division has created 2 SUVs that don’t even come with a manual. The Porsche Cayenne has one, was it that hard? Anyways, times are changing so go on and call it an M1. Better to manufacture a respectable, or possibly marvelous, auto rather than not create it at all just simply because a collection of fanboys could get harmed.
