Small pack­aged tour­ing

Peer­less dy­nam­ics make the BMW wagon al­most worth the ask

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Prestige -

Holden Cruze Sport­wagon with sim­i­lar per­for­mance and agility. But hard data do not ac­count for how the Ger­man car feels to drive, the clin­i­cal pre­ci­sion of its assem­bly and the way the cabin seems to form around oc­cu­pants.

Stan­dard kit in­cludes du­al­zone air­con­di­tion­ing, elec­tric tail­gate, trip com­puter with cen­tral mon­i­tor, re­verse cam­era, 17-inch al­loy wheels and leather-look up­hol­stery. It’s not ac­tu­ally a lot for the bucks (com­pared with a Hyundai i40 or Mazda6) and the op­tion list is enor­mous— candy to a buyer daz­zled by the badge.
