    Ultimate Electric Driving Machine 8.5

    owner review of BMW iX XDrive50, Ultimate Pkg 2 2023

    • All the bells and whistles, ambient lighting, moonroof that can be clear or opaque with the push of a button, heated steering wheel, Harmon Karden sound, etc.

    • The angular steering wheel is surprisingly comfortable, I really enjoy it.

    • 300+ miles per 100% charge.

    • Even though the body is smaller than my last car (BMW X5 M), the interior is much roomier. No humps!

    • Excellent fit and finish, as to be expected with BMW. No engine noise makes the interior ridiculously quiet.

    • Quick and smooth acceleration, anxiety-free passing and merging.

    • The interior door release button is placed very counterintuitively, takes some getting used to, confuses valets. 

    • There’s blind spot issues if the side view mirrors aren’t positioned just so.
