Mix of traditional luxury and sport-sedan attitude; plush interior upholsteries and trims; acceleration and performance; all-new hybrid model; available accident avoidance technology
The M strikes an unusual mix of luxury, economy, and sportiness that's unmatched in this class, with strong powertrains, nimble handling and a quiet, refined interior. Its new styling looks at once traditional yet flamboyant, and some will prefer the straightforward interior design to the screen-based systems in other luxury vehicles. The all-new M35h hybrid model provides gobs of power and torque all while delivering the fuel economy of a 1.8L economy car. The M lineup features a wide range of tech gadgetry, including Blind Spot Intervention, setting the M sedan apart from its class.
