The full-LED tail-lights extend into the center of the rear end and provide an all-new take on the familiar BMW ‘L’ shape with a single slim light element and a distinctive sweep to the side.

The elegant coupé form with generous cabin space welcomes the rear passengers with easy entry and ample kneeroom. Adding to the sense of space is the standard large panoramic glass sunroof.
The illuminated trim, a segment-first, retains normal appearance in daylight but functions as decorative lighting elements with a space-shaping effect in the dark. Ambient Lighting with six dimmable designs creates an atmosphere for every mood.
