The interior design of the BMW M340i xDrive Sedan
The interior of the new BMW M340i xDrive Sedan is fully consistent with a premium car – stylish, presentable, and modern. When creating the interior, the manufacturer used exclusively premium finishing materials, among which there are: genuine leather, soft plastics, brushed aluminum, natural wood, alcantara, and carbon fiber. Special attention should be paid to the ergonomics of the workplace, which can rightfully be considered one of the best in the class.
The driver’s seat is showcased by a 12.3-inch LCD instrument panel display, as well as a plump three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with an “M” nameplate and paddle shifters.
The center console, traditionally for the brand, is turned towards the driver, which facilitates interaction with the 10.25-inch “TV” of the iDrive multimedia center, the music control unit, and the climate system.
For the front passengers, the Bavarians have prepared first-class sports seats with pronounced lateral support, high-quality artificial leather / Alcantara trim, and a lot of electrical adjustments.
It is also worth noting the presence of aluminum pads on the pedals, a resting area for the left leg, and thresholds, where the latter is supplemented with the name of the model.
A high transmission tunnel passes between the seats of the front riders, on which an armrest, an automatic transmission selector, a control washer for the iDrive system, a parking brake button, and auxiliary functions of a car are installed.
The rear sofa is theoretically capable of accommodating three passengers, but in reality, only two adult riders can comfortably sit here, because the central third passenger will be greatly hampered by a high transmission tunnel and a shortened airbag.
The trunk volume in the standard position is 480 liters – it boasts an almost perfect geometry. If necessary, the owner has the ability to fold the backrests of the rear sofa (proportion 50:50 or 40:20:40, depending on the version), which in the lowest position form a flat loading area. In addition, the rear sofa has a hatch for transporting long items such as skis.
As in the case of the usual “three”, the version of the M340i xDrive offers customers ample opportunities to personalize the interior and a lot of optional equipment designed to make the stay in the car even more comfortable.
