The 330e iPerformance only comes in saloon guise, but you do get four trim levels to choose from - 'SE', 'Sport', 'Luxury' and 'M Sport'. Prices start at around £35,500, but you (or more likely your company Fleet Manager) will be able to deduct £2,500 from that figure courtesy of the government's Plug-in car grant. As with all Plug-in hybrids, you have to have automatic transmission.
All variants get alloy wheels, auto headlamps and wipers, chromed exhaust finishers, power heated mirrors, an alarm and LED technology for the daytime driving lights at the front and the tail lamps at the rear.
Inside, there's two-zone air conditioning, 'Comfort Go' keyless engine start and the 'Drive Performance Control' system that, via 'ECO PRO', 'Comfort' and 'Sport' modes, allows you to alter throttle response, steering feel and gearchange timing to suit the way you want to drive. Other standard items include a three-spoke multifunction leather-trimmed steering wheel, cruise control, an On-Board Computer and the industry-leading iDrive infotainment system, via which you can activate satellite navigation, a DAB digital radio and a Bluetooth hands-free facility with a USB interface with an Aux-in point.
