Taking a seat in the Wraith sees you slide into the driver’s chair instead of dropping down. This is a big car, after all, and there’s good forward and side vision. However, the fastback styling means over the shoulder sight isn’t great, so you need to scrutinise the mirrors closely when changing lane. At least for parking, there’s an optional rear-view camera.

As for the rest of the driver’s environment, it’s fuss-free and easy to get familiar with. The speedo is clear and the ‘Power Reserve’ dial in place of a rev counter adds to the occasion. In the centre console, the infotainment screen is worked by a rotary control that will be instantly recognisable to anyone used to BMW’s iDrive system.

In the back, there are two individual seats that are just as sumptuously upholstered as the front pair. Despite the sloping roof line, head room is fine for adults, but the slender side windows create a slightly enclosed feeling.

However, it’s easy to contemplate heading away for a week four-up thanks to the 470-litre boot capacity. The rear suspension dictates the load floor is narrower than some large coupes’, but it’s deep and long, so stacking cases is straightforward.
