BMW 218i Luxury

Does anyone have any experience of these cars?
We have had my wife's Kia Sportage on the Mobility scheme for almost three years now and have loved it. However, we now have even more grandchildren and it would make sense for us to get a 7 seater. The BMW model mentioned above seems ideal. Thoughts????

Back wheel drive and a lot of torque Mick, not good in the snow and ice....

I'm not sure that's too much of an issue. We only had one morning of frost in our part of London last winter.
