The M car's ergonomic concept features an exclusive cockpit with the driver orientation characteristic of the M line. All controls are consistently designed with a focus on the driver. As in racing, intuitive and absolute control over the vehicle are our priorities, as is enabling the shortest possible reaction times.
That cockpit-feel, perfect seat ergonomics, knee pad, direct access to all controls relevant to driving dynamics, M gear selector and M-specific instrument cluster are the central components of the athletic-ergonomic driver orientation which is the hallmark of the M line. The M leather steering wheel features gearshift paddles adopted from racing sports, leading to quick and comfortable gear changes.
The controls for comfort, communication and entertainment functions such as air conditioning, navigation and radio are located to the right of the driver so that the front passenger can also conveniently access them. That way the driver can focus on what is really important – ultimate driving pleasure.
