I love the overall performance of the car. Minimum noise, great handling. Interior is very modern and the LED screen is big enough. Very huge legroom even in the back rows. I added on the head up display which is a great feature, shows the speed and GPS on the windscreen which makes everything so much safer and easier to read while you are driving! Running costs very low as the car runs on diesel and $60 will give me 1000km on freeway. Never regretted, love this car!
Most uncomfortable seats, hard ride, poor insulation, no blind spot monitor
Anybody doing a test drive in the F48 series BMW should drive the car for at least one hour. Seats are the worst not just by design (basic seat design look like stolen from a toilet) but becoming very uncomfortable over medium to long distances. No premium here. Sport seats are for very skinny people only. Flat run tyres ensure a harsh ride especially on 19 inch if no additive dampers are ordered. Insulation from tyres and engine are also poor. Even innovation package does not include blind spot option, cannot be ordered at all. Even Holden or ...Koreans offer this safety feature as an option. Start - Stop function is best in class. Engine is economical and delivers good torque. Automatic is excellent. idrive very easy to use. Car design is nice. In summary, in a lot of aspects not a premium car but rather disappointing. I am not a VW fan, disappointed about how they treat customers but from a car perspective, Tiguan Highline with innovation package is a better and cheaper option even with DSG. Audi A3 or MB GLA cannot keep up with Tiguan either.
