The car is also wider than its previous version and comes with both petrol and diesel engine options. At the front, flanking the BMW kidney grille, are the new LED headlights which have new blue X-shaped beam inside the headlights. At the rear, it comes with a 3-D LED tail lamp unit that is sharply sculpted to give a strong character to the rear profile.
The interiors are quite plush and the 12.3-inch all-new digital instrument cluster adds to the premium appeal.
