Expect to find pricing at similar levels to that of the previous MK2 model, which means a typical span in the £25,000 to £35,000 bracket. The standard specification is pretty complete, running to include BMW's iDrive operating system with its high-resolution 6.5-inch colour display, a six-speaker audio system, plus a USB socket. Also standard are LED daytime driving lights, an automatic tailgate, front foglamps, remote-controlled central locking and keyless ignition, plus electric windows, electrically adjustable and heated exterior mirrors and a leather steering wheel adjustable for height and reach.
The various 'xLine', 'Sport Line' and 'M Sport' trim levels are differentiated by different colour grilles, side skirts and air intakes, as well as by various different kinds of sports seat. 'M Sport' models are fitted with a model-specific aerodynamic package and 18-inch or optional 19-inch light alloy wheels. The 'xLine' and 'M Sport' models get full-LED headlights for low and high beam, an optional feature for 'Sport Line' models. Options across the range include a panoramic glass roof, a DAB radio, a larger control screen and a Head-up display.
