Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

4.5 out of 5

BMW interiors have long been known for simple yet classy design, and these days they integrate a host of the latest in-car technology very effectively.

BMW 330e dashboard

The 330e features a typically stylish and driver-orientated dashboard of the type we've come to expect from BMW. It's more straightforward and less fussy than what you find in the Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class, and benefits from simple shortcut buttons and a rotary-controlled infotainment screen that's more logical to use than what's on offer in most rivals, too.

Equipment, options & accessories

The 330e is offered in SE Pro, Sport Pro, M Sport and M Sport Pro Edition specification levels, each available with either BMW's traditional rear-drive layout or the brand's 'xDrive' four-wheel-drive system.

As standard, SE Pro has 17-inch alloy wheels, adaptive LED headlights, air-conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 10.25-inch touchscreen display with sat nav, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, all-round parking sensors and a reversing camera. Stepping up to Sport Pro brings 18-inch alloys, high-gloss exterior trim, heated seats up front, leather upholstery and a split-folding rear seat for greater versatility.

M Sport (generally the top seller) adds a different design of 18-inch alloys, M Sport styling touches and logos inside, an M Sport bodykit outside, a leather steering wheel, uprated brakes and sports suspension. At the very top of the range is the M Sport Pro Edition, which ups the wheel size to 19 inches and adds its own distinctive exterior and interior styling flourishes.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

All BMW 330e models get a large 10.25-inch dashboard touchscreen display with sat nav, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with a configurable 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. They also have BMW's Intelligent Personal Assistant', which is voice-activated digital 'helper', similar to Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri.
