First ride: the BMW iX is a good touring car (update!)
At the same time, the car can dose gently, crawls with the finest forward note when maneuvering, recuperates in selectable levels and of course intelligently. Great: from push mode, the iX goes to work with jagged edges when the pedal is depressed. Im relaxed Eco mode the iX consumes unexpectedly little: Consumption values just below 25 kWh are possible. However, we could not discover the very fine BMW driving machine in the iX. Its steering portioned out too smoothly for this weight class and with too little tension; You also have to concentrate on maneuvering the heavy and wide car on its 22-inch wheels over narrow country roads without any corrections. At the same time, you feel more seated on top of the car than poured into the body and seats.
Conclusion by Jan Horn: “Confident, fast and comfortable – a first-class travel companion. The range of the iX with its 105.2 kWh battery pack even matches it.”
